That sounds like good useful chart to see. Mine was an experiment pond, why so small.

I'd love to see it too

I know dad hates tending the tank, and if it were ok he would probably leave them outside

Today I set up the hospital tank for a fish with an eye injury. No one told me how much more difficult it would be to catch a fish in a fully planted tank ha ha. Been trying to treat the eye injury with lots of water changes but every time it seemed to be healing up it would get all red and puffy around the eye again overnight. I think the fish is poking it on the spiderwood! So I moved him to the hospital tank with just a soft silk plant for cover. I think this will help but may use some epsom salts as well. I hope that once the injury is fully healed the fish will be less likely to re-injure it.

Fish suicide today. I found him dried up on top when I went to feed. How in the heck did he get out of that hole? Standard paper clip there to show the scale. Click image for larger version

Haha, already went back to review spelling on so many things, think faster than I keyboard that's for sure!! And seems I have some sticky keys that don't always work.

Local hobbyist came over to see the Swordfish Trio. Female had a spot on her head, I maybe bumped her or she banged her head on the lid. Treating that with some salt, and maybe some meds, check tomorrow evening. 100% new water for them. With StressCoat.

Added some media to the 72G in the tank where the out flow is, The 12 x 4" full bag of Matrix and Fluval rings then one API AmmoCarb bag full in the same size bag placed under the out flow until I get more Prime Tomorrow and do the canister clean out.

Doing an additional check on the water tonight.

And somebody decided fish don't have a memory, yeah right!

So I found that Swordtail which bonked her head on the lid jumping pretty hard while I was lifting her out in the net, got a red spot on it so I added some salt.

Then after returning the fish I needed a better heater, so switched the heater then came back an hour later noticing I didn't put the lid on. Then found a female fish on the plastic bag put her in and she swam around. Those fish love to jump!
