Tomorrow we celebrate one week cycled!

We may celebrate with a new tank mate. Will add Neon Tetras to increase my school to five.

Last night I rearranged the princess tank. I like it much better than how it previously looked. (It is supposed to be my daughters' tank, and now daddy is ready for a big tank).

Added some more sand to my 75 gallon African cichlid tank and did a small 25% water change.

Yesterday morning:

Slow leak in 150 FW...my nightmare come true.
Broke it down and transferred fish/snails/plants to empty 29 I have for emergencies. This is just a temporary solution.
Took all day.

Today:

Taking down 10 FW betta/cory tank now for a thorough cleaning (resting right now), fish in an aerated bucket.

Had a NIGHTMARE/VERY BAD DREAM earlier about my teen kitten knocking the glass lid into the 29, resulting in my bichir being beheaded by the broken pieces.

Finishing the 150 this afternoon, taking out remainder of wet sand and last 3" of water, plus searching for any snails which might've been left behind.

Figuring out what to do next now. Put the tank and stand on Craigslist to sell as a reptile habitat. Keeping canister filter and temporarily have it hooked up to the 29 next to the now empty 150. x_x

Well I had a second rummy pass yesterday, but got an email from my LFS saying they got more in, so I did a pwc this morning and now have 6 more rummys acclimating (only got charged for 5 because one took a jump when being transferred to the bag, we'll see if it pulls through or not).

The new angel is also finally emerging from its hiding place more often, we'll see if it eats at feeding time this evening.

Lol! Sorry .. It was the pizza comment. My tank nightmares usually are about leaks or explosions! Could be cause I'm the one who resealed them. Glad your bicher is alive and gobbling up bloodworms
