just a FYI each cube covers 20g every 2 weeks there slow release I've been told use 5 in the 90g the extra 1/2 covers the water changes .
talk about water change did a 10g change today
raised water level in sump during water change let a bunch of feeder shrimp over the divider , fish had feeding frenzy once sump kicked back in ,

Need a few cubes!

My computer's fan went out so until I get a different computer, I can only respond in say - 5 min. visits here so it doesn't have a melt down!

Cleaned out the pond and found maybe 10-12 Rosy Minnows aka feeder fish, they are really pretty fish - which I thought there was just one golden and maybe one brown one left. Really surprised. also surprised that I had about 15 or more bright red RH snails, they shown like rubies in the pond muck! They were really rounded shaped and looked pretty darn healthy.

Such a Cheap Hobby

Yesterday, I set up a 38 gallon tank and stand, with pea-sized gravel, 20 Comets and added two dual sponge filters from another tank and two air pumps to run them. Used a two bulb fixture with 32 watt, T8 bulbs from the local hardware store for lighting. The whole setup came to a little over $150.00.

Tank keeping can be such a cheap hobby.

Bought a big bag of stuff from the lfs.

Including 2 new 2.5 inch Spotted Raphael Catfish! Since they are really small they went into the 5G for a few months.

Light I have over the 12G SW is too strong and is washing out the corals.

Bought a 50/50 9W bulb and hope that will help the corals color back up.

Hoping to do some pwc tomorrow.

Cleaned out the 12G filter yesterday, got a new prefilter sponge for the 6.6G the other is pretty clogged/getting soggy.
