Nothing with the tanks so far. Visiting mom on Easter. I did discover a Tractor Supply Co a couple miles from her house.

Top trimmed the Myrio in my 30g and replanted tops. Took out some sickly Ludwigia Glandulosa that my dual 24" T5 HO's are not strong enough for. Found some good alternatives on Extraplant.com. Spent last two days catching 8 of 9 zebra danios(minnows with superchargers). Got them in a breeder box. Taking to my daughter's tank tomorrow. The ninth one has got me beat so far. I'm thinking about renting a scuba outfit and speargun, maybe dynamite and/or a DC electric shocker! LOL.
Catching fish in a heavily planted tank is something that would make even Job cuss!

Nothing like losing power. Did a pwc on all fish tanks n added battery operated air stones been keeping the water circulating and watching the heat but since its hotter in the south i doubt that will be a problem.. wasnt really bad weather in my area so not sure why our lights are even out.. its 1am n the power was supposed to be back on at 430p n at 9p someone has to monitor everything and i gotta wake the hubby up for work in an hour. Hopefully I dont lose anyone ill send the hubby for water if i cant do water changes tomorrow
