Moved around rocks and driftwood, moved the moss wall panel over to the shrimp tank, had the room after I moved some plants, cleaned a huge blob of java moss and put it into the holding bucket.

In the 37G was where I was moving everything and made a HUGE mess, was planning on normal pwc but instead trimmed the plants of poor leaves, and did about a 80% trying to get the gunk that had come up from under the rocks and off the Java moss blob. The tank has so much room now!

Added some water to the pond.

Checked on how the fluval FX-5 was doing in the 72G. It had started and stopped a couple of times yesterday getting the bubbles out since it was the first time EVER turning it on I was concerned. It was noisy as could be at first then purged, then was nearly silent, WOW was I impressed, then it shut off again, not impressed

Had to leave, so I just made sure it wasn't leaking and left for work. Was purring along last night and STILL working today!!! I think I am gonna love it. It just has the Seachem pond Matrix stones in it now, I need to add the floss pads and O's and stars, all pre-seeded (for months).

My big fish are going to be so happy! I am going to start my 72G build thread in the next day or two!!!

I put my cobalt blue zebra cichlid in the quarantine for melafix, made the change from carbon to chemi pure elite in my 55 and switched my clown loach to my wife's 20 to keep her gold labidochromis company
