Maintenance work day on two of my tanks (40 & 20). Bought another 20 gallon long. Began the process of building a fish room. Looking at a room around 16x8. Making my build list and checking it twice. Then the conversation with the wife about how it's a good idea to have a fish room 😀

So thankful I had ordered a spare O ring.....

I had problems getting my canister back together yesterday and I think I damaged it. Was leaking into its tub.

And so thankful I sit my canister in a tub too! Lol

So nice to hear of very good planning and outcome!

Better than my story today of mowing in the side yard bumped something which had a large colony of wasps in a nest. Backed up fast and cut my electric mower power cord. (on the positive I just bought 2 cans of wasp spray for just this occassion, and did not get stung - this time, and had just also bought a second power cord yesterday.) But in the crazed fervor of killing the wasps an all of their families in the general area ...

Got wasp spray over spray that fell from the eaves, onto, and a little in, the Edge glass tank I just bought at the thrift store .

I used Dawn super cleaning dish soap and cleaned it really well, flushed it out about 5 times before the soap, a few times during the soap and about 7-8 times after washing it really well. About a half hour of full blast hose spraying

Fortunately (maybe) it wasn't the super stick and last for months killing them kind...

So I am going to get ready for a trial fish tomorrow. Hopeful that it is clean now. I am feeling about 90% that the tank would be safe. Now.

A couple more rinses tomorrow with last being a Prime soak with some carbon bubbling for 24 hours. Really want to just blame the wasps :'/ But is my really dumb fault. Stupid killer wasps. Got stung about 6 times last time I got caught out there with them.

Never a dull moment eh?

Feeding beef heart defrosted for all the fish.

Angelfish wigglers are more starting to be swimmers today.

Thank you. Yeah they are mean and chase you down, and are sneaky - had one come at me then as I was turning, it flew around the other direction and stung my arm farthest away!!

3 weeks ago I was bounding down the outside front stairs and one popped out and stung me. I hunted them down

Just looked intot he Angels tank and saw about 100+ swimmers, fed them 2 kinds of food! And the parents.

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Took a day off work just to do "whatever". Spent a few hours on errands with my sidekick. Pug loves to shop.

Prepped some snails for mailing tomorrow and built insulated boxes.

Watched Khuli's for a while.

Right now I can't believe how many things I have to do and can't get enough things done even when I am working on it a little bit hard!

Just make and sell fun looking snails in custom colors!

That is a great looking project, you just made up a snail how cool!
