Woke up this morning to a Spec with opaque water. As it turns out, leaving watermelon in a tank overnight is a bad idea. It's all taken care of now.

I swear 90% of my aquaria problems stem from poor decision making.

My own worst enemy and critic.

This has to be the longest going thread ever

In fact I believe that's why this thread takes a while to load compared to other threads.

I love this thread!

As I was running out the door decided to feed the 20 Rosy Minnows I am trying again from a different supply lfs, in the pond and the water circulator was DEAD, tried jiggling shaking etc. So ran back in and grabbed an extra air pump and threw it in. Not supposed to rain today, fingers crossed.

Will need to dig around for the real pond pump later. Outdoor safe. Ugh!

Still able to run out aftet 19 minutes and be on time.

Angel swimmers all looking great, just a few are still wigglers. Will be trying a small pwc.

Have previously had angel parents go crazy and eat babies when I did a pwc so debating best choice. Maybe doing water removal from the filter compartment instead of the tank.

Then try adding a sponge end water removal tube and leave it in there permanently clamped with the water in it.

OMG those 6 fry were harder to catch than Khuli's. Pert near emptied the tank 2/3 of the way.

Put them in the main tank (after feeding the adults and dimming the lights).

Put the Big Daddy Orb back together....Click image for larger version

I've decided to put the two timed tanks on different light cycles. I reorganized all the wiring only to realize that the transformers are too big for the new (two prong) timer to be plugged in, and the things without transformers are three prong. I had set all of the timers at 9pm (current time) and switched on the power strip a few minutes after 9. Then this morning one light was on at 6am so clearly I did not get that right. I'll be dealing with that later.

Did a 75% water change, vacuumed up lots of brown dusty algae/diatoms (and snail poop!), sucked up lots of that goopy whiteish fungus, and added 2 bunches of moneywort and 4 bunches of purple/green cabomba to replenish what I've lost. It looks beautiful again, can't wait for the cabomba to grow taller. New additions are doing well but my corys aren't schooling very much.

Seem to have lost my SW Gold Stripe Goby he was there just the other day and I fed him, didn't see a body on the floor. The last couple days have been waiting for it to pop out, is usually at the front glass.

There is space and he could have jumped. It is too bad, I really liked him and he was so pretty. My little Clown Goby is by its self again and seems fine about it. Always coming over like a little puppy to say hi and for me to feed her.

Found a sick minnow in the little pond euthanized it. Treating with some Melafix to see if that helps. Otherwise looked like around more than 15 little fish were eager for a feeding!!!

So sorry you lost your Goby. I had a Khuli jump out once and didn't find him until the next day.

PWC on the Biube and Main Tank today. No drama yeah!

However I have had to euthanize 3 neons over the past 2 months. Just a general gradual decline that had me concerned about a bug. But I have had some of these Neons for years. I suspect it is just old age. But I haven't been able to find any reading on signs of aging for fish. Since I unexpectedly have 6 more mDwarf Rainbow fry I'm still a little heavy on stock.

I fed my fish and took some photos today. I am debating doing some water changes today also.
