just had to replace a heater in the discus tank. i was suspect of the heater and purchased a digital thermometer last week. temp reading was just at 76 degrees. I turned it all the way up and the light never kicked in so i know it's dead. temp is already rising with the new one.

Just finished doing a 50% pwc and testing water parameters. Looks good I would say.

Took out a bucket of Salvinia Minima and a little duckweed from by 72 G to give the new plants light.

Noticed that one (or more) of my fish ate the middle out of one of my larger and new Pogostemon Helferi crowns. That didn't make me very happy. I scolded the entire tank for the misdeed. Of course they all looked so innocent and cute!!! It was hard to be mad for long, but now I am curious. With the mass of other plants, I haven't noticed any plant chomping going on.

Moved all my "extra" petrified wood stone out of boxes from the move and set them out to look at next to my patio.

Moved my little OEBT shrimp tank next to my chair so I can watch them intently!! I thought I saw a berried one but it sunk down behind the rock crevices and then I didn't see it.

Found some amazing driftwood possibilities online for the new 12G Edge OEBT shrimp tank I am planning. Trying to decide to order 1 or 2 bags of more Eco-Complete.

Fed all my tank's plants a new but possible not worthwhile plant food Envy by aquavitro. $10.99/ ($14.99 at my other lfs, and I saw some at a different store later for 9.99)

My lfs guy said it was great and very good and safe with shrimp so I took his word for it. Then here a couple people here said gimmick to sell a bottle of stuff. It has been sitting on my shelf for about a month.

So I will see. I thought of taking it back, but after doing some reading about so many interesting foods and plants which are good for dwarf shrimp, I thought maybe try it out, it has some amino acids and a lot of shrimp breeders use some of the same things, just a little different form. So I thought might as well give it a try.

Still trying to decide which fish to keep and which to re-home when I get rid of my 37 and possibly 16G tank

Did you actually wave your pointed finger at them and say "No!"
