I am putting a glass top on my 20 gallon because i had a fish jump the other day. I am also going to be dosing the chemiclean that I purchase as well because I have a cyano breakout and I have tries everything I could. I cut light back. I vacuumed the tank. I lessened food but it still comes back. I am hoping this works.

Did a 50% clean on my bettas tank, while moving his new driftwood I found 3inch pink worm! My betta tried too eat it yuck! I netted it out haven't a clue what it was. Then while checking my 55 I noticed my pearl had a hair hanging out his mouth so I had to net him to take it out, I wonder what I,ll find in my tanks tomorrow?

Today I have test water parameters on my 55g that I am currently in the days of confirming that I am cycled...yeahhh....so far results are confirming that I am. I also drained a little bit of water from it so I could add my DW centerpiece (finally). On my 40B, I am fish-less cycling so I test ammo and it is still @ 2.0 and has been for 5 days now.

I turned the lights lights on about 25 minutes ago. Watched as water evaporated. Ran a visual check of the entire tank. Checked the temperature. Work needs to be done, but not today. I have to work in 2 hours and was going to do everything tomorrow.

Here's a list:
Water Change and top off
Remove dead leaves
Trim last emersed leaves from plants
Mourn loss of Assassin snail
Clean front glass
Remove a few algae streaks from last cleaning
Remove and clean glass tops

Saturday:
Test the 29 gal, apparently I am in mini cycle. Don't know why Did a 17 gallon water change on accident. I got distracted.
Did a 75% on the 20 high, looking a little yuck. Added a nice piece mature of filter media to get the party started.

Sunday:
Woke up to a dead fish in 20 high. Returned fish, did another 50% PWC on the 20 high, added a filter squeezing of about 3 good cups of filter umm milk from mature tank.

Did a 3 gallon change on the 29, needed water from that for my fry tank.
Did a 4ish gallon water change on the 10 gallon fry.
Dropped an air stone in and added a heater to 10 gallon as well.

Platy dropped her fry only have one survivor. pretty color though.

Anyone have any good directions on how to make a sponge filter? I have filter pad, air stone, check valve. No tubing lying around though.
