Did a pwc. Cleaned glass. Rinsed filter pads. Retrieved dead nerite snails ( think the were DOA anyway). LFS exchanged for two new ones. So much more active when their alive. Had water tested at LFS. Everything checks out. Now I can watch snails crawling all over the rocks, keeping algae in check

Went to an auction today. Did not buy anything (aside from raffle tickets). I won prizes on two of my raffle tickets. A pile of manzanita DW and a bag of misc stuff: TDS meter, Xteme Foods algae wafers, used ceramic media. Sold 3 packages of plants, collected proceeds from the last auction, met some new members.
Trimmed the tank this morning. Before and after:

Attachment sites are attachment sites...bacteria don't care. Once they get seeded there should not be any difference.
All three plant packets sold for a fair price.
Strangest auction item: Bucket of fried chicken. Apparently they had a surplus from what the fish club ordered at lunch.
Fish club guest speaker was Bob Lewis from IFGA. Lots of info on raising show guppies.

5g water change in the 29g

Two new frags in the 75g, plus another Christmas Tree that separated from the 29g

Now up to seven babies...gotta look closely to see them all, but they're there.

And I anticipate an eighth within the next few days...

Almost forgot; I started a colony of copepods...
