Within minutes, the welcome wagon had arrived, first the shrimp came to see what's going on, then both my rams came over and thought the snails were a snack. Interest was soon lost and by the time I was done with my water changes, a few brave souls were cruising around the tank. Mts, you are living on borrowed time....

Morning update: the assassins are winning. I believe I have one DOA. I'll check on it when I get home from work.

Water changes on all three today (55,37,12). I finished putting together a water filter system that I pieced together from work. Though I'm still using prime, my thought on using these filters is to remove all the chlorine, and most of the heavy metals that might be in my local water. Having a long enough hose on the discharge side, I'm able to use it to fill the tanks back up. Worked like a charm. I was able to vacuum one tank while I was filling up the other. Plus the fill hose worked great to get anything that I couldn't reach with the vacuum up and floating so my filters could remove it. Overall, I'm pleased with it.

Rescaped tank to make more hiding spots to accommodate group of rainbow sharks I've introduced to hopefully stop the dominant one stressing out the other of the two I acquired with my tank.
On a sad note, my GBR didn't make it through the mini cycle sparked by changing the substrate. Didn't even find any remains!! Think he must have been eaten!
I'll post some pics of the new scape tonight once water clears.

50% pwc on my 72. Moved some of the plants around and took a few rocks out to make room for more plants. Going to my first fish club swap meet tomorrow and I hear there are usually tons of people selling plants there.

Went to my first aquarium club swap meet. Got an apple snail 2 spare 6500k t5 bulbs for super cheap and got a bag of repashy super food. Can't wait to try it. Got the snail acclimating right now and he's trying to climb out of the bag.
