I finaly got the tank moved into what will hopefully be the final house.

the move too 4.5 hours. and thus far no losses

I had been treating the tank for internal parasites prior to the move, and now able to issolate the culprit, my male lithobates is now in a 5 gallon tank being treated with aquisol (as I can't get metro right now) I just hoep he survives treatment and starts eating late this week

as for the rest of them, as of this morning, the tank was down to 22'C (room temp) clearly having heater problems, my loaches are showing the white on their nose (precursor to ich) last time

I mucked with the heater, and addes 2 small ones. time to slowly bring it back to 30'C and salt it again. at least last time they all survived the ich. but 22 degrees OUCH

I figure it was because I placed my heater in the tank itself instead of the sump as a temporary solution. but the current should have still been enough.

Surprising how the good'ol cheapie 50 watt heaters from 20 years ago never seem to die (they're not very precise though).
