My immediate response would be, "it was one time!" lol. Exciting about having more tanks.

Wow, nice tank! I like how it is long, doesn't seem too deep.

You will just need to watch out for sunlight peeking in.

Try using some baking soda with the vinegar for some scrubbing power and deodorizing.

Day 7 of "operation kill ich" no deaths and no new spots so....

A little over a 50% water change, I got a little carried away with cleaning the sand, rocks and driftwood. Before I knew it was down ALOT.

So... I added a few table spoons of Kosher salt and because my tap is 6.0 and I took so much out. To be safe I added 3 tablespoons of Malawi buffer.

All are swimming around like normal and ate. I'll continue this for another week. Hopefully that will do it.

Oh and I added fresh poly fill. The old was DIRTY and falling apart in my hands.

Getting some much needed time in with both my tanks today, been gone for two weeks since the wife decided to do dumb things. She has at least been feeding them for me.

Spent half the day already working on all the tanks!

Tested everything to see where they stood. Mostly fine. Did pwc on three tanks.

The shrimp tank was a bugger and took an hour due to having to hunt for all the tiny mts and baby shrimp in the muck. A lot of it one cup at a time, ugh!

Decided to kick the Betta out of his well established 2.5G and get it ready for the Orange Eye Blue Tiger Shrimp, I think they will arrive tomorrow. Cleaned the sand and did a min rescape, pretty much the same.

Change my snail bowl to a two gallon bowl and added some tan Cherry shrimp to see if they can stay alive in there with only the plants supplying them air. Snails do fine.

Cleaned the filter in the 37 and added water. Added water to the Koi pond.

Spent an hour trying to solve my foaming water 6.6 Edge tank problem, 90+% water change, wiped down everything rinsed filter and media with treated clean water, and took out the DW, and took off the sponge pre-filter, and filled it back up.

Still getting .25 ammonia from the tap too.

Now off to work!

Bought a couple of clamp on shop lights and a shelf to clamp them to. Rounded up all my fish-tank only buckets to get ready for my sizeable plant order to get here tomorrow, when all of the tanks get re-scaped.
