Working on maintenance still and pwc for the week - ugh!

Angelfish eggs are mostly white about 1/4-1/3 only good. So the male seems to be not doing a very good job or not very potent. I will make this last (halfhearted) effort to see if I can get any babies. Then the couple needs to go.

Need to reconfigure the fish tanks and move some out of the LR. And rehome a couple tanks. That will give me more time to focus on less tanks. Should be a win win. A tiny bit sad, but better in the long run.

Been shopping for the ideal previously owned sofa / entry table for the plants and nano tanks - long and strong, lol. Maybe found one I would like. Problem is how sturdy it needs to be. Maybe will get it on Friday, if in person it looks to be strongly built from underneath. Can't see the construction from the pics.

Been working on clearing out the back "junk storage "room for my office / fish room.

Slowly but surely...

Also Checked with Hagen/Fluval about the tank I have been looking forward to for almost 3 years...the Edge 3 19G tank. Keep getting how it is coming in the "next season" email. And yes, once again their response is Summer 2017, lol. We'll see.

After looking at the costs for the other tanks I might just end up purchasing the tank and then the stand later. I just don't have the kind of budget to purchase a new $7-800 set up.

The FW version would house my nano fish. 2 tanks to one new tank. Fingers crossed!

That would free up a tank for my PRL Shrimp.

I could get to 5 tanks
72G Bowfront
12G Edge PRL Shrimp
5G Betta
19G Nano fish Edge 3
1 tbd size SW Nano



Then I would check on the SW version and hope it would accomodate my needs for the fish I am planning for.

Well just got the email back about the SW fish I want and they need a 40G and that seems like a good use for the 46G bowfront I already have - maybe, still gotta think that one through.

Finally planted!!!

Today I planted my 40g Breeder! I added 3 amazon swords, 1 bronze wendtii, 2 dwarf sag., a cardinal plant, and an undulata!

I also added 3 cardinal tetras and am looking to finish out my community tank by the end of the month!

Had a significant disaster tonight. So far I think all tank members are still alive. Will know better in the next few days how much damage was done.

Was wrapping up some pwc with the SW tanks. Did about a 1/3rd pwc with the 6.6G Edge Nano. Had 2 5G SW containers in the garage and still a couple gallons in the one in the storage closet. So figuring that I will get to use up the one in the in the closet and make room for the others I didn't bring in yet. I used it up.

Then after messing around with a few things. I got out the hydrometer - to make sure all was good.

By then I start seeing numerous dwarf Brittle Stars reaching all around, slightly differently than when they are looking for food - all arms extended coming out of hiding. Anemone is closed.

I find that the container of SW was NOT SW but RO water I guess because my water was WAY TOO low in salinity. New SW from the garage brought in immediately and checked good level. Then proceeded to do 2 50% and one ~70% pwc. To get it closer to the correct number.

I didn't have any Reef salt (used to but ran out) to fix it and it was late and no stores open. Usually buy prepared SW since the tanks are small. I got the level to just low normal. Finally. I was freaking out for a little while, and so was the tank.

In the mean time while I was fixing the water issue I moved about 6 Dwarf Brittle Stars to the other 2 tanks just in case the 6.6 crashes. The fish looks good now, has it's color back. DBS went back into hiding.

I haven't bought RO water for quite awhile and did not recall that to be RO. I think my heart almost stopped.

Very clean water now I suppose. During the pwc correction I used almost all my back up SW so I will be heading to the lfs Friday and in the mean time buying a container of reef salt to have on hand. AND make sure to double check all water BEFORE adding it to the tanks, everytime. Oh my that was a panic.

Sounds like a nice group of plants! Did you put in some root tabs for those heavy root feeders?
