Thank you ladies, I guess you can tell how much this meant to me. Sort of like a kid waiting for Christmas day kind of anticipation. I doubt I'll sleep tonight wondering how he is doing on his first night but he seems to have adjusted 'swimmingly' Grin

The 10 gallon is clean with a bare bottom to accomodate a tankmate in a couple of weeks that will be in quarantine probably until Christmas.

Awww wow April, the tank looks amazing and Mr. Tailer looks sooo happy Cheesy I'm so happy for you as I know the feeling of moving a fish from a small tank to a perfect tank. I was so nervous when I first moved Sunshine but I can tell she is so much happier! Mr. Tailer is also so gorgeous. Are you going to put real plants in there? Ignore that if you already have  Wink

Thank you Andrea Smiley It is truly delightful to see him wiggle all over the tank exploring. I read somewhere that Ryukin's to like to explore Wink Set up the 10 gallon and almost have it ready for a tankmate that will be in quarantine there for a few weeks. I am also going to get some plants and makes sure they are safe and 'varmint' free! A slight spike in ammonia and nitrite today (lowest on the charts) but that is to be expected in a new situation I think. Changed 3-4 gallons today. I think I should do a bigger water change though next time. He has a tiny spot of fin rot on his pectoral fin but the tail looks like it has gotten better.

April, this is normal, keep an eye on the chemistry, add Stability EVERY day for one week according to instructions.

Everything sounds just fine Smiley So you're going to quarantine the plants after the new fish then? Smiley

If you get Java Fern or Anubias you can even add salt to the water while "quarantining" them, since these plants will easily survive a slight salt solution Smiley

I did another water change about 7 gallons yesterday and continue to monitor ammonia and nitrites. Both still present 12 hrs. after change but again lowest on the charts. Added a some extra Prime too and of course Stability every day  Grin I don't know yet Nossie, I may be choosing a fish friend for Tailer on Wednesday so we'll see Smiley One thing at a time but it's so hard since I'd like to have a tank full of lush plants and a fish NOW!

Maybe you should wait until the tank has cycled with Tailer? Smiley
It would be better for the filter system since each fish adds their part to the biological load.
By the way, it takes time with them plants D: I've been growing mine like crazy the last few months that the tank was set up, and only yesterday did they finally grow enough so that I could split them and spread some more around! To grow more... argh. It's an eternal project! D:

Oh ok Nossie, I wasnt completely clear about that and wondered if I should be doing it yet. Instead I added a little more prime today and the stability and the nitrites are the lowest 0.1 and ammonia between 0 and 0.10 so I think he will be fine. Found a tiny white dot over his left eye today it is probably a touch of fungus like on his tail still. Should I add some salt to the new tank - would it be of any benefit I wonder. The temp is 70 F Oh and he had his first taste of strawberry yesterday!!! Should have seen him go shaking his head like a dog playing towel tug of war!  Grin

April, I'd keep doing what you've been doing. Also keep an eye on the little fungus patch. You may like to add Melafix / Pimafix for now. Not too much salt at this stage. This is my personal opinion.

Our babies are doing fine, yes I like it "full tank TV".

Did a few waterchanges in the tropical tank, being sooooo carefull not to suck any babies out but you guys wouldn't believe it. Even protecting the end of the hose in the tank two ADULT guppies had their LUNA PARK ride through the hose into the container... that must have been a thrill... they shook their fins, I netted them back into the tank and here they swim around the hose again.... Shocked nibbling on my fingers ( I protected better this time ) as if they wanted to say " Mummy, I want another ride "... my heart was jumping into my throat and back doen my guts.  Shocked

OMG!!! those little stinkers Cheesy you must be firm with them Hanna, cheeky fish, cheeky cheeky fish!!! LMAO I know how could we be anything but delighted or frightened for them. What about putting a piece of nylon on the end of the hose with an elastic? They are so inquisitive these tiny treasures ♥ Reminds me of the scene in Finding Nemo when they had to get off at Sydney after swimming with the sea turtles and ride the vortex of doom, 'grab shell little dudes!'  Grin
