He was helpful! I tan the siphon and he emptied and filled the buckets. The bending to siphon was painful but not as much as hauling buckets would have been. Fish are all happy in clean water now! And I finally raised the water level in the betta fry tank a little. Most are around guppy fry size now! He even cooked dinner after!

Umm hvent done much all week with my tanks n got so much that should be done.. i know its only well almost weds here .. I meed to rescape my 125g for sure n make a new place for my betta n get him outta the breeder net..

I noticed that one of my females is no longer holding just to be sure i checked all fish of that type ij my tank and all seemed to be eating unless she tricked me .. but im thinking mayb she swallowed her eggs/fry or something as its her first batch .. then checked n my nyererei is still holding on day 25... she should spit on day 30 exactly at the hour she started..im gonna take off that day so i dont miss it this time

Helped a fb friend today who has a 10g they are stocking.. they wanted a oscar.. i was like ummm no not a good idea so they got a betta instead n now want guppies,mollies n a crab .. :/ so im working on that now

Resealed my 75 Gallon Tank today .a little harder than I thought it would be now the waiting game. Sat I will fill and check for leaks .and if all is good my Oscar will get a bigger tank and my convicts will move into his 55 and out of the 40..checked on my kyogas today now I have 2 females holding..... I LOVE my flamebacks but I think 30 is to many and now more on the way......so if anybody in or close to Washington state. I have a bunch to adopt out...

I trimmed down, moved & spread out plants in my 30g tetra tank today. Cleaned filters and tubes in all the tanks and did 60% water changes. While alot of plants were out of the tank , I caught the 5 huge black skirt tetras that I am giving to my daughter. They're so big they are starting to nip fins bad on my neons and rummys. We'll see if they want to nip on her 5" kissing gouramis. OS.

Added some black diamond blasting sand to the 125g. The white sand was too light and the fish colors were too washed out. I think it's an improvement.

Man, that looks good!

I fed everyone and did a water change in my little snail tank. Yesterday was my long day with the tanks, I put all the plants I ordered from autumnsky in. Will post pics when it starts to grow in a little and I get everything arranged as I like it.
