Put a new bulb in my 5.5g . . . WOW! I hadn't realized how bad the light had gotten, now I know I need to change out the bulbs for my 10g tanks.

Water change on the 75g and cleaned one of my AC110's next week I'll clean the other. That's pretty much it. Oh and I tested parameters.

Ammonia 0
NitrAtes 10
Nitrites 0
pH 8.0

Temp 78.6

Lookin' good, Welcome BlueCrawDaddy!

Oops forgot to list what else. Have done small pwc on 37 since I forgot my vac at the other house.

Filled water in the 16G shrimp tank and the pond.

There were some plants which absolutely don't like the 37G tank for some reason and are leaving nasty dead slimy stems and leaves all over. Did a quick trim from some remaining old, bad leaves from the end of the heat and salt damage from the Ich treatment around 3 months ago. Almost everything else looks better, but hasn't had the love I normally would have given it.

Work jammed up so maybe will get to it if not later this week next. Changing the sand out to Garnet and moving the tank (37G) to it's new place! That one is getting a new background too, something metal looking I think. It will be changing from a double side open view to up against a wall.

Moved my 110 filter over there to the 37G from my quarantine tank to blow some gunk around and clean it up some, will try for regular pwc tomorrow.

Checked on the Tiger shrimp and there are still some in there, lol.

The foaming Edge6.6G tank seems to have officially stopped foaming. I see a few bubbles up top but will get it moved and see how the big water change goes.

Gotta sell off some Java moss and other misc., gotta figure how much there is to post.

I had been given a fairly new bottle of Jungle strips, now another company took them over maybe Tetra. Anyway they were 6 in 1 and very good for a quick test. there are several instances of strips not working, with manufacturer deficiencies and sometimes mishandling by consumers. One thing is the lid on tight and have the moisture absorber to keep it "fresh/accurate", and always did a double check with a liquid test/fish store test sometimes, every few weeks or so to make sure. So as long as you v=have had a double check recently I wouldn't worry since you are getting the liquid!

Yesterday I cleaned the inside glass of all 3 tanks and I got a scarlet cleaner shrimp for my birthday! He's so cool! He's in my 10 gal nano. Blue (my yellow tailed damsel) was all up in arms about having a new tank mate. Swimming around with his fins all extended. He decided he likes him though. Now to think of a name...
