Did water changes in my angelfish tank and my goldfish tank, will get to the Betta tank either later or tomorrow. Had quite the help from my 20 month old this morning too- ran out the front door and across the front yard while I had my arms shoulder deep in my tank, played in the toilet, played in the dirty water bucket, put cars in all of my water jugs, and then tried helping me fill them back up. Lol glad I'm done with it this morning!

Kids are great lol you,ve had a busy morning, they just get up to all sorts and seem to do it when your busy! It use to be like that in my house nearly every time I looked in my tank there was either a power ranger or whatever my son was eating surprised my fish survived!

Rescaped my 37 tropical. I think it looks a little more natural, except for the dragon and the antique diver/bubbler, and added two electric German blue rams. Picked up a couple of other cichlids for the 55, but I already forgot what they are. Will have to do some research to Ty and remember.

After some research, and a phone call to the LFS, the others re a German red, and a m/f pair of pundamillia nyererei.

Scouted for a LFS today. I am tired of the misinformation from petco-smart. I really liked the place. The prices were pretty good. His driftwood and rocks seemed reasonable. My daughter was a little fussy so I wasn't able to spend much time talking with them.

No water change today! Ammonia and nitrites are both below .25 ppm. It was a wonderful break for both me and fish. I am sure.

My nitrate is still at or below 5 ppm... Could that be possible once the tank cycles? Or should I expect that number to climb some?

We are getting excited about adding the new tetras and snail.

I did a 3 gal pwc on my 55. I guess that doesn't seem like much but seriously... That tank is maintenance free. I absolutely love it. It houses 20 3 spined sticklebacks and 3 fathead minnows. Also some MTS. I had about 4 ghost shrimp in there but I haven't seen them in a few weeks...

Nitrates should rise. However, if you have live plants the nitrates may not rise alot. Plus, if you've been doing a fish in cycle and doing water changes alot, you've been removing alot of the nitrates during water changes.
