Tested new 89 gal patio pond. Did 1/3 water change before test. Changed the Marineland 530 out for the underwater filter with light that came with it. Zeros all tests.

29 FW now down to eel, cory, pleco, and gourami, the latter is so laid back now you'd think he was living in San Diego lol... But tests not so good as the tank's vibe, with 80 nitrates and nitrites can't recall at moment but too high so I gave it 2 caps of prime and a spoon of salt. Will do another pwc tomorrow. I have cut back on feeding but am probably still overdoing it. Having a problem with the eel eyeing cory as snack now that eel is bored after the 3 goldfish moved to their new "pond". O_o

PS... Plans are to move the 150 indoors this weekend so anyone who wants to come up to escape the hurricane can get a free meal (other hobby is cooking :P) if you help move this glass monster...

Good news, was looking in on the 10g today and the moon that I thought had aborted her pregnancy is holding still. I don't really understand it cause before I could see the lil fish eyes, then nothing, and now I can see them again. Weird!!!!!!!!

If you see A platy going in the parents mouth, they just became dinner. Live bearers are not mouth brooders. I have enough fry that I think they are safe lol

After three days of being in bed with the flu, I finally felt great enough today to do my water changes. Which were about three days late. I had been performing daily water changes because of a spot of ich on one of my neons, something of which I had not gotten in my tanks in a long time. So I threw in my ear buds, switched on the IPod and cleaned my sand really well, bumped the heat up a bit to 84° (I've been slowly increasing it) and finally planted the Lilaeopsis brasiliensis. I'm hoping that it will start growing *Fingers crossed*

I finally did my weekly pwc on my 55. I've been so focused on my cycling pico reef (and school starte md this week for the kids) that I would look at my 55 and just didn't want to mess with it. I made myself do it tonight and I enjoyed it. I like how the fishies nibble at my arm. It tickles! My water wisteria is really taking off. It's going to be a forest soon!

25% pwc on 29 FW and down to 40 nitrate with no gravel in tank cause we are going to move it Sat. Decided to put 150 where it currently is, since it is on a main weightbearing wall. Getting excited about it finally coming together.

Fed outdoor 89 gal water garden fishes, who love the new space.

Sorry you haven't felt well butterfly. Seems every time the seasons start to change, people start catching colds and flu.

Bear...pretty tank!
