Today I didn't do much, I fed my fish bloodworms and watched my fry gobble up a lot of them. Tomorrow I'm gonna do water changes in both my tanks and clip some plantlets off my java fern

Vacuumed the sand, 30% water change cleaned the pre filter pads, and fitted a reflector to my lights. My Malawi's have never looked so good!

Did 75% water change for my puffer tanks. My fahaka has not torn up my Java moss and lace fern yet. I will add red cherry shrimp to the sump.

My 46g has finished cycling. Now I just need to pick up the fish next week.

Did a 50 % on my 20 high, then tested Still High Nitrites, Not as cycled as I though , Going to do another water change again today. Still depressed from losing my job on friday. Most likely high levels in my tanks because I waited a little long to do them from the stress. My hubby and I got new fish, glofish on sale @ petmart till end of today. 2.99 Vs 5.99 per fish. Going to go change the water on my 29, clean my 10 gallon guppy tank. They all died for some unknown reason, and the 6 that survived are in my 29 in a breeder net.
Well off to do chores.

Six Months w/ No Large Water Changes

Hello All...

Emersed another Aglaonema land plant in one of my tanks. Have a dozen large plants in that tank. Water very clear, no visible algae. Ammonia and nitrites must be at "0" and nitrates low. Noticed a dozen or so new, "Livebearer" fry in the tank. Corydoras in the tank are very active in the low light, so water must be extremely clean.

Tank running 6 mos. with water changes at 2 gallons weekly just to service two mid sized HOBs. Filtration at 400 gallons per hour (gph) in a 45 G tall. Good aquatic plant growth in spite of the high oxygen environment required for the emersed plants.

Interesting how floating certain land plants in the tank will keep the water chemistry totally stable with very little new water added.
