I wasn't able to post pics earlier, I will see if I can take a few good pics with a different cell phone with a better camera than mine lol. Otherwise I will see if I can post them on one of my albums.

I will be tearing down some of the tank to put in my new 72G, so stuff is everywhere right now, over crowded lol.

Trimmed the plants and tricked? my flowerhorn into eating chingmix head boost by dumping it in a empty container that his usual food comes out of. He ate it right away, usually I am fetching it after a few min because he doesn't eat it. Coincidence or trick?

I scraped the mineral deposits off the back glass of my 92 gal (made the mistake of setting the tank too close to the wall which makes this a major chore), I did a 50% water change in an ongoing effort to get rid of a nematode infestation in the 92, and I bought a Fluval 106 for the 13 gal tank in my kids room in an attempt to save the last fish standing (danio). Thought about buying an LED light fixture to replace my noisy compact florescent fixture - but decided to wait as there seems to be mixed reviews on the Marineland fixture I was thinking about.

Sweet!! Just managed to pick up a piece of live rock rubble from petco with a couple green polyps they aren't opening yet, but I wasn't charged either, so yay!! Good luck, torch corals are gorgeous!

did a water change on my planted/discus tank then sat and admired my discus, i'm so in love with him!

put a softie in my Evolve 2, i think it's a zoa? they are opening up nicely.

also mounted my ro/di unit and setup my storage bucket so no more oops moments of cleaning up gallons of water that overflowed because I forgot
My name is Deb and I have MTS

I switched out the substrate and decorations on my five gallon. Recyled my rock cave for the 29 gallon.

Bought lights with my Christmas money! Marine T5 HOs for my up and coming 55 gallon reef and another t8 light for my 30 gallon so I can plant it!! Yippee!

Edit: also scraped all of the algae out of my planted tank. I was out of town for 2 weeks and the lights were left on.

On my 55g, I re-homed 3 Orange Von Rio Flame tetras, 3 Long finned Black Skirt tetra's, 2 long finned Red Minor tetra's, and 1 shrimp (I re-homed them because I added a Bolivian Rams pair yesterday as my focal fishes). I worked on some of the plants.
On my 20H, I topped off the water, clipped some plants, and replanted unknown sword.
On my 5g RCS tank, I topped off the water only because I am waiting to see a cory or 2 wiggle in the next couple of days. Oh and I re-homed the hybrid looking male that I had a thread about.
I did nothing to my 40B.
Current tanks: 55g/ 40B/ 20H/, 5g
If you always do what you've always done, you'll end with the same results
