Very nice problem to have.


Pwc on TT shrimp tank a couple gallons cleaned the prefilter sponge
the 12G nano fish tank about 2+G,
3G on the cycling 12G SW had to remove a bunch of the food balls I put in there they just got stuck in the chaeto and never broke apart. Yuck. Will test the Nitrite to see where we are at on the cycle. Might add a couple snails if it looks alright.

Pwc on the 6.6G SW nano
pwc on shrimp bowl

Add water for evap on the rest of the tanks, and guess a couple ounce bottle of Prime doesn't last around here so need to go get some more.

Need to vac out the left over food in the 29G and do a 1/3rd pwc.

And remove some Spiky DW and move those Angels in the 72G when I get a spare few minutes /hours.

Right now only see one nice looking baby Albino BN Pleco in the Spec V. There were 2. Maybe it is hiding in the tubes maybe not. (I think I saw a Albino already staying in the cave again in the 72G).

I don't think I am liking this tank as it seems the flow is lousy and gunk isn't getting sucked up.

Noticed that the giant Crypt is now melting in the 46G - the plant with the Angelfish babies. And it is because of the broken light fixture. The single CFL isn't cutting it.

Also looks like I can't see more than a few little baby Angelfish left right now. Trying to decide about saving some or not this time. The parents could have moved them to a different leaf too.

Nursery tank all the plants were put back in. PWC to get out more meds. Haven't seen any planaria but added 6 wiggler Khuli's to take care of them. I know they will snack on a shrimplette if one is careless but I don't need hundreds of shrimp.

Baby Biorb PWC and cleaned and moved the 5 nippy Endlers in there. Took all all of the ramshorn but 2.

Reds biorb got a PWC and added 6 young Galaxy Rosboras. Hoping they will entertain him and not attack him. Lol.

Potluck Easter tomorrow so I made lasagna. Not a big ham gal.

Did a little weeding, a load of laundry, and boy do I need the glass of whiskey now.

Old and aching.

At my parents' house for Easter. Have to have the egg hunt. We came over Friday night, and I'm terrified of something happening and coming home to tanks of death.

I don't know how people survive leaving their tanks for several days. I mean, I know not everyone worries like I do, but I don't think I could do it.

We're going to a wedding this summer and we'll be gone f five days. I'm going to be a wreck.

Everything will be fine, your a very skilled, caring hobbyist. Your tanks always look great. If you have any issues you have a whole forum of moral/technical support.

We went away for 3 days and it was all gone. Power had gone out the first day and when it came back on it tripped the power strip. Didn't have a tank for a decade after that.
