I like the layout but it is a little cloudy and brown from new driftwood, only been soaking for a week, in the other tank.

My 2 new marble Hatchet fish are looking great, and well colored and happy.

But that is more than I can say for my Blue Rams - found one body the snails were snacking on and as the 32G QT is the same which is holding a ton of extra plants, like a little jungle in there half the tank is full of plants just hanging out waiting for someplace to go and didn't see the other one, had two... So maybe alive, maybe dead, but probably dead too.

The Rainbow Blue Platies are all roving around looking active and happy. The blue rams seemed super stressed. They came in the day before I got them. They are guaranteed, so I froze the dead one until I can look for the other one too, they weren't really cheap, but not bad, not going to replace them, going to wait and consider getting the nicer Hybrid kind I liked from the other lfs later. I don't usually lose many fish. It is sad. They were alive last night around midnight. Maybe those active Blue Rainbow Platys freaked them out to the breaking point. edit - yup found the other one, dead

My master test kit is at my new house, QT at the old one so I am going to do a big pwc in a minute. And test it later.
I'm sorry it's hard to loose a fish, especially rams. They can cost a pretty penny. At least around my area.

Did a big water change on the 55 cichlid tank. When I checked my params the other night, the trates were through the roof. I put my vacuum in, started the siphon, and then tarted carrying buckets of fresh water to the tank. Treated the water, and kept filling while emptying. After about 30 invites of siphoning, I removed the vacuum, and finished filling. Will check params later to see if I need to do another change tomorrow.

It worked, it brought the trates down to between 5 & 10.

Got all the driftwood I won on eBay today. Now just to feel well enough to rescape. I've been sick for almost a week now...
