Wow, just saw something I would have never believed if I hadn't have seen it just now...

Sitting on the couch reading about fsh, of course, and I hear a loud sucking swoosh water sound. Look straight across fromcouch to the tank and see the big Angel in the had just did a pole vault into the Breeder net in the 46G.

I was thinking and probably said you stupid fish. I turned around to get the net to scoop it out and I hear a tiny noise like water when you drop a small stone into it. Fish hopped back over the fence no problem. The joke was on me because it seems the baby Platy are not there now.

This really just happened. Incredulous! Just shaking my head! There are masses of plants all around the net, floating and DW floating. The water level is down 3/4 inch but the glass top is about an inch from the top of the net. What aim that fish has.

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Oh my! really wanted ?

I did my PWC yesterday and vacuum the sand. I added the recommended amount of Seachem KH and my snails totally went into lockdown. I suspect I may lose some.

Speaking of fish being smart, I have never had such fans as when I set the little cup I use to thaw frozen food on top of the filter. Daphnia today.

I'm trying to figure out how to get CO2 to be consistent in the morning. Not sure why I'm having so much trouble with that.

I treated some suspect algae yesterday with H2O2. I also did the water change. I thought everyone was freaked out about the KH...BUT...this morning lights on and everyone still isn't happy. So I run tests and sure enough I have .5 ammonia. Haven't seen green in years. I think I killed more than I thought with the peroxide! 60% PWC with Prime. Pulled all the snails out into clean water and only returning those the are in motion back in the tank. Will test again in an hour.

Just finished the 2nd 60% water change when my husband asks if I tested the tap water. A month ago I did and it was close to .25. So I tested it....this is with Prime added. Click image for larger version

Looks like my tap water

The king of diy, on YouTube, shows how to make a filter to clean the water before it goes into the tank. It's essentially a pvc pipe with every type of Aqua clear media stuffed into it. Capped on the end, with holes drilled for water to come out, and by the time the water makes it into the tank it's safe

I'm going to make one
