Ammonia was at 0. That was the first thing I checked. He wasn't skipping. It looked almost like he'd lose balance. he'd be swimming fine then suddenly the top fin would puff up and he'd just crash. Repeat. Very strange.


No progress on the tank. Had a busy weekend. A lot less spare time than I was hoping for. Finishing smallreef up, then all energy will be poured into the tank. If i'm not done with fiberglassing by next weekend, i'll be surprised.

ehhh well.....no



I still have to finish fiberglassing (i haaaaate it) and pond armor. The glass. Then ready to fill.

Almost done though! I need extra hands for the resin, so things have been slow going.
