Moved the 72G tank two more times to get a different layout

Also meant I did another 75% pwc.

Left my 72G half full to treat the tank for the first day since it is a double dose. And the meds are so expensive. I will need another package to complete the treatment of Maracyn 2.

Moved 37G, and did 80% pwc also due to moving it. Cleaned the 110 filter and yuck! And a little Marina 15 filter, I have on there in case I need it for something else.

Cleaned some Garnet sand and added it to the tank as the bottom was bare. Spilled 2/3 of a 5G bucket of dirty water in the carpet, YUCK again! Had to clean that up and I am exhausted.

Threw in a few plants in the bottom of the 37G with the Rocks. The light fixture is built in and it broke. I have been using a Architect lamp with an extension arm and only low light plants in there right now but now that I moved the tank I will need to figure something else out as the light was attached to a desk in the office.

Then moved the 16G bowfront and cleaned filters and 80% pwc due to moving it.

Moved the snail bowl.

Sent daughter to pick up a new bottle of Prime when she went to town, so I don't run out! lol

Have out of state company coming tomorrow and I have a full work week, so glad to get this all done!!!

Now I have a wall of fish tanks, they are all lined up. The 37G will be going when I can get the 72G healthy again.

Jarred my 4 largest betta fry today! Chasing had started, so I figured it was time. So I now have a tray with 2 liter coke bottles and 1.75 liter gin bottles with the necks cut off sitting in my makeshift fish room.

Observed and enjoyed fish. Did weekly water tests. 0s across the board. I still have no detectable nitrates, but the plants are healthy and growing. I can only guess that the nitrogen is being used by the plants. I'm not going to forgo weekly water changes of a modest 20% just to build up nitrates. I think there is more harm than good in that.

Tomorrow is maintenance day! Yeah!

I found a 5g bow front tank with a hood with a light fixture, a filter and 6 filter cartridges. It also came with an extra large bottle of goldfish flakes that I'm gonna sell. I got the whole thing for just 15 dollars!!
