Water changes on both tanks. On another note, The filter on the 10 gallon crapped out on me so I know what I'm doing tomorrow. Hoping my neons will be ok for tonight w/o a filter. Should I move them to the 29 to be safe?

Thought I had a bubble algae problem. Figured out it wasn't and removed it

My nitrites spiked today, nitrates started showing, and I mixed my pps-pro dry ferts to start dosing tomorrow. Hopefully I'll be ordering my fish by this time next week.

My son got a used 15 gal from the LFG. And set it up as a breeder for the time being. Got 3 guppies to add to the breeding pool and spent some time shooting the breeze with my fish guy. At 7 guppy fry still...and getting ready to try our first betta breed. Interesting times ahea!

Actually something I did last weekend...I removed several plants from from my 20g L planted tank an moved them to a new shrimp tank. Planted tank has been running for about five months and I was shocked at the amount of crud, poop, etc accumulated in that time. I don't gravel vac. I stirred up as much as I could. I pulled out the media in the main HOB for a few hours (sat in a bucket of water) and filled two HOBs with poly-Fil and let them polish the water for several hours.

Redid my 10 gallon. Both tanks have sand and I will never go back to gravel!

Looks good! I feel the same way, once I put sand in one tank I put sand in all of them. No more gravel for me, either!

Thanks! It was a pain in the butt! Already lost an Otto. It couldn't handle everything I also had to evacuate all 6 of my neons to my 29 gallon. The filter died last night and im not sure if they'll pull through as well. I just might turn this into a planted shrimp tank. Already have 6-7 blueberry shrimp in the tank.
