That sounds Like me and tanks I saw a 200g on the Canadian version of CL(kijiji), for 650$ with 2 fluval fx5 filters, stand, heater,..... Plus free delivery and a guarantee it doesn't leak. I took all my self control not to buy it (also not sure my floors could handle the weight)

Haha, today I realized that I made a bit of a mistake last night...

All day, I've noticed a funny smell in the area around my kitchen/part of my living room. A nasty dead seafood smell. I checked around my crayfish tank on my kitchen counter for escapees and I did a headcount on my 56 gallon that is in the living room near the kitchen. Everyone was accounted for. Thought it could possibly be something in the fridge that has gone bad, but I just cleaned the fridge out. Then a few minutes ago I remembered that I set frozen brine and bloodworms out to thaw and couldn't remember actually feeding them to the fish. Look on top of the tank, and there the cup was, reeking of bad seafood. Our air conditioner is not working well, so the place averages about 80 degrees. So it was pretty gross. So I rinsed the cup and thawed some more, so tonight they will get their frozen food. I was clearly forgetful last night - earlier I threw out the leftover mashed potatoes I forgot to put in the fridge last night.

I had a "you know you got it bad" moment. I just couldn't wait to do my weekly routine pwc and maintenance today because I really like doing it. It isn't work. It's a labor of love. The most work of it is clean the buckets, brushes, gravel vac and putting them all away. The actual work on and in the tank just doesn't seem like work.

And after that today, I just sat back and enjoyed watching my happy fish doing their fishy things.

I love how you call it a labor of love. So true.

I removed the rocks from my tank, and replaced with another two caves ready for my apistogrammas. I moved some plants around and will be picking up some more today. I also removed my fluval u2 and left my fluval u3's in there. The tank is really coming along! Tonight I will add some almond leaf extract to get the pH on a slow decent ready for the apiso's.
