Holy smokes, assume that would of been a big job? I just get a sideways look now whenever I say I'm just going to shift one piece..

Looks good Lunch.

That must have been a job Seaweed!

I must be loco, I am thinking of putting up my pond again. Our Aquarium Society meeting topic is about ponds this week too Still just thinking about it - missing my pond...

Getting psyched up to rescape my 12G Edge and nearly decided to move the Tangerine Tigers in there and buy a new school of Chili Rasboras. I think there are just 2 left of the Phoenix Rasboras (sold as Chilis but NOT!!!). They seem to live about 3 years.

Also maybe get enough energy to clean out the 46G QT tomorrow. Maybe...

EDIT!!! Got the 46G tank cleaned out. It is scrubbed out but not rinsed, now outside ready for the rinsing. All empty, discarded all the rocks (about 20lbs Eco complete) and filter media (new will need to be ordered).

Lesson learned do NOT use a tank for a med treatment if you want to really ever use it again for anything like inverts or SW anything critterwise other than fish.

Planning to use Cuprisorb on the tank. I saved a little water to do a test on the copper levels and will run Cuprisorb for awhile and check levels again.

so I think today I will contemplate it some more and continue to procrastinate.
They make traps just for tough fish like that. Might be a better option than a tear down.

Rinsed the tank I left outside last night.

Since it is outside time of year, I looked at my cache of left over stuff mess in the back corner of the yard in the hiding stuff corner, just slightly out of public view and realized I have a whole bunch of used unneeded substrate, what happens when you go from 13 tanks down to 3 plus QT (no substrate) and 4 water plant bowls (which don't need hardly any) There were buckets and tubs and a couple bags of misc stuff. Out of sight out of mind especially in previous winter time!

Dumped out a few buckets and containers and combined and know that I can get rid of a big bunch of it. There are misc mini internal filters, my pond pumps and tubing and misc!!!!!!! Only got to about a third of the mess but did dump out some buckets and containers of mosquito spawning liquid, lol. Definitely don't need more of those!

Added trace minerals to the SW tank. Hoping to get the bottom into the low iron repair tank by next week. Keep running out of time to get to the glass shop.

Trying to decide if I should scrape the front of the SW tank or let the snail keep working on it?!?! hmmmm...

EDIT: Did pwc on Tangerine Tiger Shrimp tank, a 25% and a 33% - always kick up gunk food particles, still over feeding ugh.

Did 3+G pwc on the 12G Edge and added 5G water to the 72G.

Add water to the SW from evap. will do pwc tomorrow of about .5-1G.

OOOh can't wait for pics!!! Congrats on the new additions!

Already spent some time this morning working on tank stuff.

Moved the AquaFarm plant container outside to the shady area to get some better stronger shady light. Everything in that plant tank looks great including the Red Ramshorns, and I have a little cloud of algae in a Brandy snifter "bowl" and I think there were a few mts ended up in there as well and I had just been saving it for if I needed it for something and a cylinder vase with about a gallon volume with some plants and algae that had been remove from the bucket from last summer that lived outside and ended up with it being in the sun for a month I didn't even notice - anyway all went outside under the shady deck for the summer.

And as nicely as the Aquafarm tank is, is as bad af the bucket of plants I removed from the tank I shut down before, and the forgotton bucket of plants pretty much was dead. There were a few little things which was fine like the Moss Balls and Nana Anubias and a Micro Anubias , tiny baby and a Dwarf Val - only one and a half dead Elodia -2 parts of stems maybe 10" each.

The giant cloud of Subwassertang (used to be beautiful and bright green when it was growing in the tank) was melted into a million particles some brownish but half with a hint of green. So I left those mostly in the water and put that into a opaque bucket which my plants last year really liked outside under the tree next to the fence. Will either have a hundred new plants of some great fertilizer to water the plants with, lol.

So on the negative, the Aquarium society meeting on ponds was last month, but on the positive is that it is on micro /live foods and should be really interesting, and these vases are the perfect spot to raise something like Daphnia.
