Finished catching my baby labs, had to tear the tank apart again. I discovered that I can't remember how I had it, so I can't duplicate it. The wife thinks it looks balanced, but I'll have to see if it grows on me.

Got things ready for the weekly PWC for tomorrow. Looked in my Guppy tank this afternoon and saw that I'm the proud papa of about 30 new babies. The little boogers are everywhere. LOL. OS.

Was watching the crawfish tonight and noticed when my wife cleaned the tank she added another snail . Both crawfish are molting again.

Shipped a huge package of shrimp and fish, huge number of plants, and some Garnet sand. Found a new batch of Rainbow Blue Platy. I didn't have time to count, just noticed little ones hiding when I came in to feed, super busy long day. Will check them tomorrow.

Water change, water change, water change & water change . . . did I mention water change? 4 done & one more to do on my 46g. I also changed out one of the two bulbs in my 10g tanks with a 50/50 10,000K/true Actinic Bluelight & OH MY WORD what a HUGE difference as you can see in the pic.

Haha. I made that change and I was flabbergasted at how yellow they were before!

It is incredible! I just put both bulbs in the one tank that's side by side with a tank that still has the stock bulbs . . .

If you don't think the bulbs make difference . . . think again!

Broke down biocube, blasted the chambers with the hose, cleaned out pump, powerhead. Took fan out of an old computer to change out my intake fan hopefully tomorrow. Conditioned water for tomorrow's water change on the 55

Hey Shellie, the new bulbs actually look brighter too. Just imagine how the blue line on neon tetras would look under those lights. Wow! Tank looks good. OS.
