40% WC because I went out and bought some lilaeopsis for the front middle of my tank. Adjusted the CO2, finally getting the drop checker to go green. Roughly 3bubbles per sec @40psi. Enjoying this aquascape thing. Also bought flourish and did first dose. 6ml. I put it into the sump in the refugium. I can't see why that wouldn't work. Figure it would be well mixed before it hit the main tank.

Got the mess out of the pond shell. The old pond has a crack so we are going with the smaller one I need to check up on how large at least 100G.

Potted some Vals, Dwarf Vals or Sag, and Anacharis/Elodea. Spilled the fluffy potting soil in the pond it's still floating hours later. Ugh! Changed the rest of the pots to the heavier soil and silty "soil" Never really tried planting those. Pulled off some green algae. Weather is supposed to be nice in day time. Will need to load in a heater and go find the pond pump to get some good air and circulation. It is in the shade of the deck and behind the stairs of the deck. It is closest to the electrical.

I am still looking at steel ponds and the rubbermaid type as well. Would like it to be around 300 gallons. I have a bunch of expenses with all the projects, bo new pond might need to wait till I stumble on a $25. deal.

1st preformed pond was like new and free this one was $10-20 can't recall at the moment and came with a big basketball sized lava rock with a hole drilled through with tubing for the water to flow out of. Still thinking about what to do with that after 5 years. Somebody sat on the edge of the 1st preformed pond and cracked the inner edge which I was able to patch with JB Weld Marine!!!

Most happy thing is the Cycling 12G SW nano, Nitrites were 0. Woot!!! So I added a bunch of fish food and I will test again in a few days and see where we are at. I don't have time atm, work schedule is busy, to move stuff & rescape anyway. Maybe this next weekend.

Really need to figure out the Male and Female Angelfish and get them in Male only and Female only tanks!

Did some preshopping / scouting for some new Discus.

Now that the pond is set up after I get the heat in there I can move the Platy over into it and free up a bunch of needed space. Then move out the floating DW fromt he 2 tanks, then clean and move the 46G to the back room, move a few more fish in there and in another 2 weeks I will be able to shut down at least 3 tanks. Yipee!

Last night fed all the fish freeze dried Tubifex. Yipee, happy fish.

Found out I am allergic to Tubifex, not good, hard night.

That makes Blood Worms and now Tubifex.

Be careful and do not breathe the dust, wipe or scratch eyes, nose or mouth.

Symptoms include for many before they realize they are allergic is stuffy and or runny nose, sneezing, swelling in eyes, itching hives. Or worse. Be careful, wash hands, use gloves, etc. if you have symptoms. Or perhaps do not use.

The real question is -- are you a human?

Two of our eight mystery snails have taken to lolling out of their shells. I'll post about it in my build thread.

I'm supposed to test parameters today, but jeez am I tired!

Yes, that is possible and sometimes the reactions can be severe. Same thing happened to me once; eyes shut...looked like Rocky during the first fight with Apollo Creed. Just before he yelled at Micky "Cut me!"
We had a user here with a severe mollusk allergy. Could NOT have snails in her tank.
Did nothing with the tanks except aside from feeding.

So many surprises lately, today, is that last night I saw the Angelfish in the 46G on super alert and in between leaves of a monster Crypt I had bought at the auction, I could see something orange. Well as I walk by the tank tonight I see a TINY little thing look like it is swimming and why yes it was.

Not only eggs, but wigglers and swimmers. With the stress of feeding and all the Platy and the few other fish trying to eat I am afraid the little ones will be eaten by the parents from fear, if not the others. I am not sure I can add the Platy to the pond yet and trying to catch the would have the Angels in a fit anyway.

The parents are grabbing the little ones and putting them back where they want them. I am afraid it is a no win situation though. So next time if I will want them to have swimmers, it won't happen. lol Wow can Angelfish swim really fast if they are protecting the babies.
