I deep cleaned both my bedroom tanks this past month. I combined the occupants of my 20L and my 30B, so now I'm down to just 3 main tanks! arty: The Bedroom 40B--Just 6 occupants for now. 5 medium PPs and 1 small Indo. This tank has had some mysterious deaths over the summer, so I want to wait a few months from my last death before moving anyone to or from this tank.

Tom is King of the Shell Pile Cy is still in his fox shell, been a year and a half now. Sirius checks what's in the food dish Handsome Bruce Tom and Bruce My lone indo now, Irwin, wasn't feeling photogenic And some of the residents of the 30B: First the PPs: Stubby is looking not so stubby anymore Miss snickers finds a good place to hide from the flashy box This one is a mystery. Last October, I bought a micro sized PP so small it didn't have hardly any purple on the claw yet. It was so shy I only ever got one good photo of it. Peewee Nov 2006 The crab's shell could fit on a nickle and you couldn't see the crab when it was in the shell because the crab was so tiny. After I put Peewee in my main tank, I only saw him once ever again, when I snapped the photo above. During my last deep clean, I found its shell and assumed it had a terminal molt and died. Imagine my surprise during this deep clean when I come up with not one micro-ish sized crab (stubby) but two! There shouldn't be two crabs that small in my tank... Could Peewee have somehow slipped past me undetected during the last deep clean? Here's the 'mystery crab' I am dubbing Peewee!!! 'Pee-wee' lives! A few pictures of MaryAnn, one of my Es: MaryAnn MaryAnn shows off her good side Now for some of the ruggies: Fiji is growing up! Palau Fala My office 40B will be done sometime in the next months or so, then I'll be finished with deep cleans...at least for awhile!
