Did 50% water change for ich treatment, turned up the heat a bit and upped the salt. Fed the ACF some new food I made for them - everyone in the tank loves it! (apple snails, frogs and platies)

Thanks for the good wishes about the loss of the Rams.

Lookin' good Convict, stand is a nice color.

Tanks are very nice BBradbury, as always, lol.

The Rainbow Platys in QT all look great. Yesterday did pwc on the QT with the Rainbow Platys.

Did 50% pwc on the auto wrecked recovering neighbor's recovering swim bladder issue Betta. I am doing his about every 3-4 days to keep the water better.

Neighbor is coming back in about a week Fish seems almost normal now.

Started fish in cycling a little 1.5G tank for him for a new Betta, he had the tank already, added filter pad squeeze and a decoration which looks like a bubble anemone and is made from silicone so its rubbery and has tons of surface area and BB which has been in my QT for a couple months, and 1/2 tank water with two young guppies. To get it started.

He has a 2.5G with the same filter pad. The tank where the other fish passed away, so if he decides not to get another fish he can have good BB started for the present Betta in the better tank.

****
Since I did my sand rinse (treated water) and scape change on the Edge 6.6 tank, the water has been a tiny bit cloudy, and in this tank I have never had that - always been crystal clear. Driftwood is making it a tinge brown, so it looks awful.

I am a little stressed about it since that is where the OEBT shrimp are going. Didn't have time to get the test kit from the other house yesterday due to work, doing that in a little while. Fish are active and look fine aren't stressed looking, just me I looked stressed, lol!

Another pwc today for the Edge.

Everybody got fed and seems in good spirits.

I think BBradbury has the right idea, low light, low tech, and low maintenance.

edit add:
Put up my new Fluval 110 on my 32G, it barely fit, one of the cross straps on top is at the edge of the water flow, so a little water rolls off it and makes dripping noises. Otherwise it is very quiet, can't even hear it.

Unplugged one extra air bubbler - I obviously won't need moving up to 500 gallons per hour through there, lol. I was a little scared hearing some horror stories about others with the 110.

I did a 30% water change and added prime on my 90gal Malawi tank... nitrites were a little high and my fishys seemed a little uncomfortable added a power head with a aerator to move more water and add more o2 ... They seem better..

Just laughed my bum off about a thread I just saw. I'd spoken with that person earlier. I applaud anyone who had the patience to comment on the thread that followed.

That being said I looked for my nerites and contemplated adding a cuc to my reef

It's a bit cloudy at the moment, going to take some more water out later and do the same tomorrow. I feel I need more sand on the right it isn't as deep is it ok to go ahead and add it tomorrow? Thanks
