Today did not see any swimming fish in the pond just a couple dead ones, maybe they were really hiding I didn't move any of the wood or pots. I add a huge big bag of carbon next to the bubbler.

Really am disgusted and disappointed about the pond. I am thinking of ordering the Poly Filter and see what color the water turns the filter pad to help me understand what it is.

Will flush it out tomorrow if I don't see any fish swimming and try once again with the carbon in there.

Ordered a new API Master test kit and it should have been delivered today but haven't checked the mailbox, too tired. Curious if it will test my water any differently than the old one. The new one is supposed to have a 2022 exp. date!!! Checked that before I bought it . Still need a new GH/KH. I have one that I never even opened but it expires in November. NEVER thought that would happen!

The Angels, in their new private 29G home moved the eggs to a new leaf as there were about 10 white eggs.

So far they are doing a good job.

Just looked over and noticed, I think there are wigglers as the parents are grabbing things in the water and spitting them back onto the leaf.

We moved Donald Trump to the tank where we keep the comets.

Donald is a bright orange platy, the biggest in his tank, and he's been harrassing all the other fish, including the three month old platys that we've just introduced in there. Nipping fins, trying to have his way with everything that moves.

Now he's in the big tank, on his own with four comets that we're keeping till we can get a pond for them. They're four times his size. He started off really aggressive, but this morning he was keeping well away from them, regarding the world with a baleful eye.

Glad to hear the big guy is learning some manners, lol!

I had a naughty fish a Pearl Gourami and he was an aggressor. After he got homed to a semi aggressive tank he was a perfect sweatheart!

Did salinity tests for the 12G SW nano and the 6.6G nano, and the macroalgae 6.6 holding tank, made adjustments and refilled with the approprate amount of FW.

Then I tested the SW and it must have had the lid off and had evaporation because the salinity was way high off the meter so I adjusted it back into the proper range for sea creatures. That would explain why I kept having issues lately with high levels even when adding back in what the evap was in FW for normal range but didn't seem to come out right.

Filled for evap. on the rest of the tanks.

Angel eggs are just wiggling have been taking periodic pics to document!!! Just in case they survive!

I thought I lost 2 fish this morning. I couldn't find them any where. Once I lifted the lid to feed them out they came. O.J. is a bright orange Guppy he is also the largest one and Jumbo is the largest Neon Tetra I have ever seen. Did my partial water change.
My new water heater will be here tomorrow. I'm looking forward to adding more plants & fish.
