Also, it's been a good day - I've been offered a secretarial position by a friend of mine for $10 an hour, and I'm looking like the best candidate. So hopefully I will soon have a better job and more money for fish stuff! Keep your fingers crossed for me!
Fingers and toes crossed!

Woo! Just ordered a nice chunk of equipment for my new tanks! Glass tops, heaters, sponge filters, fish food, thermometers, air tubing! And a new filter for my neighbor. She could pay around $30 for it at walmart, Drs. Foster and Smith has it for $15. Plus a huge box of filter cartridges for it, since I can't convince her that it's better to not change them out so often... But at least a good $40 of the order is coming back to me from her bit of it. Makes me feel a bit better about my total, haha.

And yes, it is looking very likely that sometime soon, I will be at least a part-time secretary, to become full time when we secure an actual storefront as the business is currently ran from home. Extra cash for now, and a nice exit strategy from a job I hate!

Yesterday I received my Odyssea T5 light fixture and put it up. So sweet! I did about a 15% water change today, and then tested my NO3 level. Between 10-20 on my Red Sea test.Closer to 10. I'm getting close to being able to stock it! Hopefully next week I can pick up my zoas and trumpet coral from my local place that is holding them for me!

Plucked out a few snails to the snail jar, they know I am waiting for them and keep hiding from me!

Arranged to get some Tangerine Tiger (TT) Shrimp and a new to me 5G very good condition Aqueon bowfront for my DD's Turquoise rescue Betta. I found the newly rescued Betta a new home, already mentioned that but also going in a 2G filtered and heated Tank which is better than a 1G or plain bowl. - of course.

Moving another group of shrimp and fish in the next couple days. Trying to decide how and which tanks to switch them around to.

Tomorrow going to measure gh/kh of my tap and tank water and compare, and see if I need RO/+shrimp minerals or not. Based on what the TT breeder is using. I don't want to mess with RO / and minerals (not a big deal by themselves).

PWC on my main tank and the kid's 5 gallon betta tank. Ripped out piles of java moss and java ferns in the main tank to move to the tank at work where I am going to attempt to make a moss wall. Tied some new mosses to the driftwood - I forget what they are called. Hope I didn't tie them too tightly. Counted assassins and posted an ad on my local Used site to try to rehome a few of the monsters. They are voracious! Oh, added two juvenile panda cories to my main tank. My LFS are getting more next week, so I will add to them after the quarantine is done, provided my water conditions are still good.

Then I fed all the wee beasties and stared at them for a while.

I did a 15g pwc on my 35 gal hex and broke my pump. I taped it back together so it still works. Lol! It may be time for a new one.

I had to take apart the Marineland emporer 400 and clean it real good. I think a tiny snail was down near the impeller making it really noisy.

Fed all the tanks and watched big meanie (a 4 inch fathead minnow) try to steal all the food from the other fish. He's so mean but the professor (a 2 inch fathead minnow) is pretty smart about getting his food. He's crafty!

Not a happy... got my packages today one was perfect and one ha been opened my java moss and fish food was gone but the driftwood was left you coud see the box was pulled open and like someones hand went in digging the tape was stuck good on the 2 ends i had to cut it with a knife to continue opening the box.. i was gonna stick my moss on the driftwood guess ill look into something else i may be able to find locally .

On a better note i got my other package that was perfectly wrapped and had ramshorn snails and surprise they included like 5 or more RCS... so i have shrimp in my 55g for now...
