My nitrites jumped in my 3g today while I was at work. So it got a 75% wc! Three little one gallon got a 50% wc. Water in main tank was good, altho I expected the nitrates to be a little higher..

Giggled at the betta in the gallon tank when I peeked in to check on my daughter.

He literally sleeps in tiny spaces of the stones that are on the bottom. Thought he was stuck the other day but nope! He sleeps there every night!

Removed all the decor from my tank,thoroughly vacuumed my sand and did a 75% pwc.Had to carry 30 buckets of fresh water up the stairs to refill the tank.Its worth every step to keep my fish happy and healthy

Ordered 100 lbs of eco-complete for my 75 gallon...... now trying to muster up enthusiasm for changing the old substrate out completely and installing new....... not so big a chore on an empty tank, but a bugger and a half when the tank is established with driftwood, plants and fish.....

Yikes! Thats alot of dirt. But just think about how much your plants are going to love it! Sounds like a good project for the weekend.
