Today I test my tap water parameters after the water had sat 24-48 hours...results are as follows: PH-7.4, Ammonia-.50, Nitrite-0, and Nitrate 0. I did my first sand bed sweep with a 75% water change. I did such a large water change when I test my 55g water parameters which were: Ph 7.4, Ammonia 2.0, Nitrite 0, and Nitrate 5.0......then i did retest the ammonia which was 1.0....I might as well mention that I also completed my stand (haven't found the perfect trim/border trim) for my new 40b today and stained a red mahogany....any advice on the sudden ammonia spike? Only thing I can think of is maybe some poop/uneaten food on sand bed but when I cleaned I didn't see any food and a little poop

I was putting all my babies to bed and noticed something odd in the guppy tank. one of my females was sort of "resting" in a plant. didnt seem right. i noticed two of her sisters dead. her other sister not looking good either. one of the oldest babies just floated by........

the heater is on the fritz and apparently cooking everyone, I can put my hand on the glass and it's quite warm to the touch. according to the thermometer the temp is over 90. I'm horrified.

I'm kinda bummed, but there's a whole lot of fry to keep the legacy going
got a new heater today so all should be well. I got this tank used like 2 years ago, which included the pump and the heater. the pump is still doing it's job pretty well tho

Did my weekly 50-70% water change for my 120g and 20g puffer tank. I've been feeding them a lot of clams, which I caught last week.

My 46g soon-to-be-reef is still cycling.

I did nothing for my 55g, I broke, smoothed edges, soaked, and cleaned slate tile for my 40g, and I placed my new 20g in my double tank stand I just built
