What did you do for your fish today?

Hey guys, I stole this from a car thread that I frequent.

One simple question...

What did you do for your fish/corals/tanks today?

Today I did partial water changes in both my tanks. The water coming out of my one tank was NASTY! Brown from the driftwood in there, and carbon was nearing the end of it's lifecycle.

I fed them. Today is frozen brine shrimp day, now I'm getting ready to clean their tanks. Then, after all that (cleaning 12 tanks) I'm going to set up a filter for one of our new tanks on our 120 to get the cycle started in it so it will be ready once our new tanks are set up. Then, after that, I will be washing DW and soaking it.

10g water change from my 29 gallon.

I added one of the 29g filter sponges to the my cycling 10g and moved a sponge from the filter in the 10g to my filter in the 29g.

Did a 60% PWC in the 40 gallon; cleaned the sand; removed the dead wag and goldfish who died in the most inconvenient spot in the entire tank; scrubbed down every inch of the glass and mirror to get algae off; put in a new bubble wand; discovered that bubble stones do not work in sand DUH; bought three new snails for the large tank (two blacks and a gray); bought sinking goldfish pellets for my goldfish (instead of continuing to feed them tropical flakes); added StressCoat to the tank, as well as Mellafix..

For my 10 gallon, I did a 35% PWC and added Stress Coat and Bettafix to the water.
