My wife loves freshwater fish but the only thing she wants to do is feed the little buggers lol. Better that way I guess I'm kinda ocd about cleaning things so I know it is cleaned right. I want her to learn though. And to learn how to mix salt and change my reef tank water so I can sit back and relax for a change. I work 60 hours a week and have 15 hours drive time a week. I wish she would learn lol. I'm going to teach her how to top off my reef this week

Got two Bettas over to my neighbor (who had been injured in an auto wreck and recovering away from home). The Betta which had recovered from his swim bladder problem, and another to keep him company.

Moved my snail /shrimp /plant bowl, to the new house.



The Arrowhead plants in the top are twice the size as in the pic. This is from a week or two ago.

Started three grow your own lily bulbs from Petco, my other one is growing like crazy. There are some Apongotons in the background which have been growing for a year, and some new ones from the multipack in the foreground. Not sure if you can see them, but the onions are growing too, more in the middle. lol, fun.

The lily has more than 15 leaves, now, including big ones floating on the top of the tank...This pic was also a week or 2 ago.

Added water to the QT and shrimp tank forgot it in the sink last night.

My foaming water problem is diminishing in the 6.6G Edge!

Program feeding times, multiple feedings if needed. Not sure of the brand but I got it at PetSmart for like $30.00.
Yeah I know. But I dont trust people with my tanks. Except everyone on here giving me advice. I was gone for 3 days and told my mom to not feed the fish. I came home and she said that she fed them because 'they looked hungry.'

Worked with the hubby to setup his tank.. i have been cycling it well since Sunday i think . I used media from 1 of my running tanks and added some fish food . Got him outside n started letting him clean the sand.. he thought after one time it was done.. i was like nope we got a few more times to go. He did good though . We added his decor and since it was a backup plan we added some plants we had.. once it clears up one of us will add some photos.. soo proud of him though it looks way better then i thought

50% water change today and gravel vacuum. My ASI freshwater kit should be in tomorrow. Maybe I will have a better piece of mind on my levels. You all keep me worried with your criticism of the strips.
