Thanks seaweed and coralinealgae!

I found out last night that its slightly deeper than my 55 and I have to stand on a chair to be able to reach all the way to the bottom. But it came with a mag float! A big one at that. As far as what I did with my tanks today-

Fed fish in the 55. Moved an Anubias, some wisteria, and a piece of driftwood over to the 35. I was given some accu-clear water clarifier with the tank. I never use things like that in my tanks but since I don't have a filter cartridge in the filter on the 35 (it's seeding in the 55) I figured I'd use a little to clear up the water. So far I've not seen any difference at all. That's ok. The water will settle on its own. I'm going to get some liquid fert and a background for it this weekend. I chose not to paint it because of its shape.

60% pwc on the Betta who's not feeling well, he's looking better on his body, he still seems stressed, his color isn't like it used to be. He's not tipping sideways as much, but still can't swim really. He's pretty happy sitting in the crook of the plants near the top.

50% pwc on the 32G flat back hex.

Getting ready to move the Red Tail Shark and the giant Blue Gourami to the 72G, hooray!

I totally want to... Not gonna do it. Wouldn't be prudent...

I took a couple handfuls of sand from the 55 and about 6 MTS and put them in the 35 hex. I figure there's gotta be enough BB in the sand and on the plants and driftwood to support a couple tiny snails. So now there is life in the tank!
