Emptied my 10 gallon, moved the baby snails into a floating breeder box in my main tank, and dropped the filter into my main tank to stay wet. Then I went at the 10 gallon with vinegar and a razor blade and cleaned it up to start painting it. Then I realized that I don't actually have any silver paint like I thought I did, so I wasn't really able to finish it. I did get some metallic lavender lines done. Tomorrow I'm getting the silver paint to make some silver accents. Then I can do the white, let it dry and fill it up. Friday I'll be able to put the sand in and finish it off.

+1 on the slate rock. My tank was only 30 gallons, but here is a video and some pics of my slate rock. The cichlids love it, it's inexpensive, and I think it would be kind of cool to mix with the cichlid stones and drift wood. I've already rehomed the fish because I learned about stunting.

It's not really something I did today but something I've been working on for a while and today and yesterday my fish responded! My gold saum has been pretty strict on cichlid flakes only, but id make sure to throw in some krill/blood worms/shrimp pellets in for a feeding daily even if he won't eat it. I'd end up scooping it out. Eventually he started eating it, probably realizing if he doesn't eat it, he doesn't eat a second feeding a day. Now he acts like he loves it! I actually will put a diff container up to my tank and whether its me imagining things or not, I give him the food he wiggles more for! Haha I love it!

Added a sponge filter to my 55. It's a lot bigger than I thought it would be, plus the bubbles from it are pretty bad. I put a valve on the air line to regulate it some. I figured that this would work for any qt tank I might need to set up later.

Added the 9 Blue Tetras to the 72G. One was really hard to catch, and I feel bad, SUPER stressed.

Did a 30 gallon pwc on the 72G.

After seeing the Blue Tetras in the tank, I decided I have TOO many small fish
The link for the 72G is below.

I ran out of new pic space so I need to rearrange some pics and don't have time right now to add one more pic.

I will in a couple days.

72G FW Adventure - Want to come too...?

I think I will move my Pearl Gourami male in there and then see about maybe adding a couple of females. The huge blue Gourami is in there but I will be switching him from 72G to 37G. He hides in the back alot and never can see him. The Pearl Gourami would add a large bright focal point in the dark tank.

Last night my smaller Bolivian ram was following my finger all over the glass. It usually comes to greet me but it was really in to me last night. After the type of day I had at work today, I'm just gonna admire both tanks, so relaxing

What kind of goldfish in the 10 gallon? I don't think there is a type of goldfish that should be kept in a 10 gallon. I may be wrong.
