I'm always thinking of trying to enrich the lives of my fish. Last night I took one of the tubifex worm blocks and set in the outflow of my hob filter. It spun and my fish went nuts chasing all the little worms. This went on a good 10 minutes!

That sounds like a great idea and really fun to watch.

My tank scrub went well hard to move a 65gallon around safely and gently while cleaning. Esp by yourself.

Cleaning a 10 Gallon with bleach also the filter, no idea how long its been since I cleaned it
Cleaning a Water Changer with bleach, Let me tell you FUN
Then Setting up another Tank, 10 Gallon with pantyhose Inake,
Shrimp Seller sent my shrimp ahead of schedule so Now I am running around trying to find a place to put them. Hubby is looking at me like I'm nuts, because now I will have 4 tanks running at the same time.

20 high

5 QT
10 Temporary Shrimp tank

So many water changes, Then had an oh poop moment. I forgot to do my water change on my 20 high. So that too will have to be done today too. Wish me luck. Dam I hate Ich

Oh no way I'd risk moving an empty tank that big by myself.
