Fishys had a ball playing with my hands and tools. Fresh water made them all happy. Rummys heads deep red. Looks like each one drank a quart of Capt. Morgan! It was a family affair as the two cats and the dog came in and "helped". LOL. It was a GOOD day. OS.
No pictures!? You must have had a ton to do!!

Did a 1/3rd pwc on the 72G. Vac'ed the Eco.

Added water to everybody's tanks and bowls and buckets.

Got a line on some orange eye blue tiger shrimp and some very dark red cherry shrimp. Won't be able to order them for a week or so due to the cherries not ready to ship yet.

I decided to mothball the 16G. And see how I get along with out it. There are very few inhabitants just some baby fish and snails. My Bamboo shrimp will go into my 37G, back where she was before.

As for the baby fish, I have around 23 Rainbow Blue platy babies to rehome for good deal in case anyone is interested. And plants.

And maybe some blue blue/grey Cherry shrimp. MTS and Ramshorns and mystery snails, ivory and a few purple striped which will need to go.

My Blue gourami is bloated so I fed her a few little grains of Epsom salt and treated the tank with some too. That ought to green up the plants!

Going to move numerous handfuls of Salvinia Minima and a little interspersed Duckweed into my pond for the Koi and Gold fish.

Plotting the location for their yet to be built, built-in new pond home. Having a hard time deciding the type of set up.

Think I will be going for Water feature rock spilling underground into pond. A side thought is to make the "rock" a filter too. Right now I have a trash can filter with an above ground pond liner thing which was a temporary set up. The trash can filter is hidden under a deck, but the new place is a different layout with no hiding place.

Doing some reading on pond building again! lol
