Ended up doing a 75% water change, and rearranging Buck's little home. This time around, I did a deep cleanse of his gravel by moving it all into a separate container and putting it through a syphon for filth. Got a few bits that have apparently evaded previous cleanings. Going to be doing a test of the water parameters in the tank tonight to see how it is settling.

I am finding that I like his current arrangement more than I did the previous ones since it provides him with a lot of surface cover and hiding places while still leaving a good amount of swim space. Hopefully Buck will end up liking this set-up as much as I do.

Only downside to today is that the bottom to the thermometer for Buck's tank broke just as I put him back in. Fortunately it was only the bottom part with the weights and not the red stuff that measures temp so not as bad as it could have been. I managed to get the majority of them (black bead weights) out before they reached the bottom but couple ended up beneath the gravel of the tank. I can't get them out with the turkey baster I got for any waste Buck makes in the tank and I don't own a magnet to get them out that way.

I did a quick research thing on what is in the thermometers in the first place immediately after and found out it is either steel or lead so no immediate safety hazards for Buck. Either way I am going to play it safe and do a big water change again ASAP when I have the next batch of water dechlorinated.

Went to Dick's Sporting Good to finally fill my paintball canisters, so I can at last set up my pressurized CO2 system, only to discover this store no longer does paintball refills...

Then I went to my favorite LFS (Nature Aquarium in Santa Monica) to spend a gift card I'd gotten for Christmas. Fellow fish geeks will understand how excited I was buying $30 of Ohko stones.

(Also got some crypt parva and root tabs for the 10g in prep for making it a planted tank, as the fry I've raised to adulthood in it are going to the LFS tomorrow. My little ones are all growed up.)

Nice some dragon rock. My lfs has tons of it for 1.99 a lb. An seiryu for the same price. I get my paintball tanks filled at academy but I have 4 total, so don't go back for months 😀
