Water changed two tanks, cleaned two filters(not on the same tank). Replaced the ballast in one light. That makes 3 ballasts in 6 months. My equipment is getting old

Today I test water parameters on my 55g which is in its 5th week of fish-in cycling, did a large PWC to lower nitrites (5.0), retest and they were between 0-0.25...

I test the water parameters on my 40B which is in its 1st week of fish-less cycling, my ammo is still at 4.0, did nothing
Current tanks: 55g/ 40B/ 20H/, 5g
If you always do what you've always done, you'll end with the same results

Cleaned the 10g, filter, separated plants, put in root tabs and water change.
50% water change on 180, organized the plants in sump by type and added all the cuttings from the other tank. Also cleaned one filter on it

Just did a 50% water change on my 75 gallon African Cichlid tank and a 5 gallon water change on my BC29.

30% water change. Water test.


I went out to get some shrimp for I ran out and lo and behold, there was a sale on rainbow fish. I picked up 2 turquoise for $3.50 each, and 1 Dennison Barb also 1/2 price for $4.04. I also got the shrimp. Was thinking about another Bosemani Rainbow for $5.00, but they were all female and ichy.

Fed the fish...

Pulled out a molt from my cleaner shrimp, went to my normal lfs stores and got 3 nice corals.
First is frogspawn, second is a leather, 3rd is a dying pipe coral I got and a piece of the leather that feel off (guess I could say I fragged today huh? Lol)
