Worked a 9 hr day, came home to a Sterbai acting 'funny' but not in the good way, Nitrates higher than normal ( could ve been 10, 20 or higher, anyone else have trouble reading that stupid API chart?). Did a 3/4 tank water change, fixed the plants that have been bugging me, fixed the airstone that had worked it s way to above the gravel again, put the cover on, put the lights back on, closed the cover. Was doing dishes & noticed the air hose from the air stone had come off of the airstone & was flopping all over, removed the cover, lights & top, reached in & reattached it . Waiting to retest the Nitrates. You know, just a normal 'I have an aquarium' type of day .

Did a pwc on the reef, scraped some algae and buffered the PH up to 8.2.
Added some bigger hermit shells also.

50% clean on my bettas tank cleaned the impeller. Can't get over the growth of my apple snail she's bigger than my adult diffusa! Found out she's a cana here's a foto of her, the first is only a week ago. Yikes!

Super Cold got me, I was sick in bed for several days.

Yesterday managed to top off tanks and pond.

Did PWC for neighbors swim bladder problem Betta who seems much better now. Still isn't moving around a lot but can get from top to bottom alright now, not swimming sideways!

Did PWCs on two tanks 60% 32G and back to back 5G on the 16G, I didn't feel like unplugging the filter.

Sold some shrimp and Java Moss.

My daughter brought me a almost new Fluval 110 It had been returned to the store and the people bought a canister filter instead, and had only been used a couple weeks, it was a gift to me but only cost her $17.

The airline smashed her bag and broke a couple plastic pieces on the lid and side, though I don't think it should be a problem and still function fine. I will try and get the airline to replace the housing, since they smashed it They probably won't do anything, there is always super glue!

I am planning more changes to the fish tanks, still in the research and development phase right now!

Honestly having a hard time deciding on focus being more fish like trying to raise GBRams and Golden Rams or inverts. I would tend towards more of everything, but since I am trying to learn the meaning of SIMPLIFY my life...such an alien term!!!

Thanks for listening!
