The spouse and I are sorting out how to make a pump work with the Spec that came without a motor. No word on the eBay dispute yet. [redacted] fraudulent sellers.

I am apparently a crazy person attempting to sort sand with an airstone.

Tried fishing out moldy algae wafers (is it normal for them to go all moldy within 16hrs?).

Tried finding my shrimp and changed the pump from hi to lo.

Maybe too little flow all around the tank???

Dollar store turkey baster!!!


~~~~~~~~
How about a sieve or strainer??? To sort out sand.

Found a sick Platy. Moved things around in the yard to get the "pond" out of the mysterious back corner. Planted some plants and moved the pots that were not yet planted because they were where the pond will sit. Was intending to use the 29G I just got as the outside tank, but I have a back up of fish issue going on right now.

Like 6 angelfish and I cannot really tell the sexes. Wanted to have some n the big tank with the Discus whenever that day comes, but now wondering if I can actually do that. I now have too many Angels. I saw 2 of the 4 in the 72G cleaning a leaf and now see them ferociously chasing away the other 2. One which is a favorite.

Needed to get the Platy out of the 46G and the floating DW which apparently will never sink, it has been weeks now.

Have the pond full of stones from the rock garden which were put in there when the painters were painting last summer, so they didn't step on them and break them and get paint on them.


So as usual there are 5 things to do before I can get to the one I want to do. AND found out that company from out of state will be arriving this evening. I didn't realize it was this week surprise!!!

Moving the extra plants from the 5G bucket to the 3G Aquafarm (Back to the Roots) container so it will look slightly less ghetto in the backyard/next to my back door, depending upon the temps!.

I'm looking for some 60 mesh for sorting the sand.

It can be difficult to find things to do with my feet up. I am not a good candidate for a broken foot, guys. I have too much to do.

The sand I did sift looks really great.

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

PWC and vacuum on Reds Biorb today. I can't seem to spot one of the Endlers? Red is a bit more active with them in the tank, maybe he got one?Click image for larger version

Drove along the backside of Mt. Diablo to get over to Brentwood Tractor Supply. Got my black sand. Do about a third of the nursery tomorrow.

NICE!!!



I have 5 recently purchased new driftwood floating for over a month now still bouncy like a buoy!







Pretty!







Check the edges of the plant, they split off and make new ones and can find them at the base sometimes.





Yes, the fish would love that. ROFL!!!



~~~~

Fed Tubifex and Plankton.



20% pwc on SW nano. Saw at least 7 Dwarf Brittle Stars grabbing for the foods. My Stylophora frag is bleaching in spots. Was warned about that from SniperHank.



Nice thing is the 12G SW fishless cycling tank is getting lighter color Nitrites test every few days, so it is getting closer, probably another week and we'll be in business. Fingers crossed, lol.



~38G pwc on the 46G tank. Had a touch of ammonia maybe .05-.10 and a little nitrate, probably 30-40, (0 Nitrite) have a bunch of fish in there because of the Platys. Cleaned out the AC 110 too. Bunch of Platy will hopefully go to the pond.



Was trying to save a gallon pitcher of seeded media but ran out of air bubblers to keep it circulating and after 2 days was a lot of die off and it was stinky!!! Dumped water and added some water from cleaning out the AC110, maybe save enough to keep it able to cycle the QT tank.



1.5G pwc on the Spec V (5G) with the baby Albino bn plecos and the Poppa BN still in the cave. Saw at least one of the tiny babies still zipping around the tank, from the 2 that fell out of the cave when being moved, and he's 2x as big as last week!!! Been keeping the light on it a little bit longer to grow more algae for when they come out of the cave.



The lone Discus seems to have decent color, no black stress bars and I think she ate a little bit.



Tested her water maybe .15 ammonia, 0 Nitrite, and maybe 2 Nitrate Tomorrow pwc on that tank of 75%. She is the one of the pair that would come out and watch me, still coming out from behind her blanket covering and looking at me, a little swimming around rather than sitting in the corner, and that seems good.



Adding some Prime just to make sure the water stays good til morning after feeding cubes of both foods in an attempt to entice eating.



Maybe going to move the Angels from the 72G and switch the Discus back to the big tank which is where I would like her to be, sometime this week, need to redecorate the tank a little to make more room for swimming. Maybe will buy a moderate size companion for her, or a number of smaller ones, still trying to get best consensus for the decision. The stress from this fish is making me old faster than I'd like!!!


The parameters were fine 0-5nitrate 0 nitrite 0ammonia I'm not sure what happened maybe he's just a little aggressive had him for a few years first time it's happened. I might figure it out one day haha
