Topped off my tanks and put the 20-something small pieces of driftwood I got on to boil. Got a lot of tannins out and hopefully they will start sinking soon. If not, I have a caulk gun full of silicone and some pieces of slate.

Searched everywhere for a GH/KH test kit, only one was found but it was preordered and also prepaid for and NOT available.

Everyone said their orders were backordered for them!

Initially was trying to get the API, but decided anything that measured it. lol

The Salifert KH/Alk was the only one available was $28 and 1 1/2 hours away, one way.

I think I learned how to use it but I am still not positive about how to read the results, I think I am reading it right, from holding the pointy end up, and reading the number at the black stopper? anybody know for sure?

The sad stressful part of the day is the little edge is still foaming, I don't know what to do.

Since I was traveling around to fish stores, I found a couple interesting things.

Most cool is a Orange Lazer Cory (4.99), was in with a bunch of mixed Cories, the only one in probably 100 fish. And a Blue Filter feeder shrimp(8.99). And I got 9 Blue Tetras (15.00, on sale/ saved $3. not that big of sale but I have always thought of trying them). To lighten up the dark tank! Went to QT.

btw, the 110 on the 32G QT really brightened up the water clarity! Only had a little 20G on it, and 1/3 tank is full of floating /loose plants.

I did nothing with my tank! Didn't even get to see it because when I got home the lights were out. I did, however, help a friend test for nitrates on his tank, Had to show him how to do the test the right way.

It's been a sad few days in my fish room. I made the decision to get rid of all but 2 of my aquariums. I got 9 sold!(I couldn't even bring myself to consider getting rid of my saltwater tanks. Not happening. Lol.) Hopefully I have a really awesome tank to show for it in the future though.

Now instead of spending money on 11 tanks you only have to spend it on 2. That's going to work out really great! Your saltwater tanks will look awesome! It's still sad that you had to part with all of the others though.

Didn't exactly see how much they run but it is orangish and has a stripe so it has to be that! aka Peru Gold stripe stripe, I think. It caught my eye as it was orangish tint in a sea of bronze and tan. They had fun things to see!

They also had some really neat looking ones which had spots not like dots, like a julii but circles which were tan bodies and light brown ring like circle. edit, ijust looked at over 300 pics on planet catfish of Cories and didn't see the spotted ones I saw yesterday! They only had two maybe three.

And one kind which looked like one I saw for $30/50. for sale... it is 1.5 hours away but I might go back. Adolfoi MAYBE...all mixed were $4.99.

There are a zillion kinds of Cories and many which look similar. There were numerous tanks of mixed Cories. But I didn't know which kinds they all were. When I got home is when I started looking as some pics and names, still couldn't find a pic of the ring like circle one. I was exhausted so didn't spend a long time looking. They had a bunch that was for sure!
