my maroon clown helped he pushed all the corals that fell under the rocks out so I could get them and replace them where they belong , I gave him a few live feeder shrimp as a reward
smart little guy

I was doing my daily check on everyone in my planted 70 and found that 2 of my rasboras seem to have some sort of fungal infection. Looks like I'm going to have to do a 50% pwc tomorrow morning and medicate the tank

Nothing worked all day long.

Didn't even get their lights turned on.

So what do you think is it better to leave the lights on for 9-12 hours straight or off. (for a day) I never leave it off all day long but I was worried about it being on so long straight.

I can't set up timers yet, they are in storage somewhere.

Feeding them now and getting the lights on for awhile.

The number of infected rasbonas has gone from 2 to 4. Did the 50% pwc and medicated the tank. I'm just hoping it doesn't wipe out the entire school of them or spread to any other fish in the tank. The 2 first infected are not doing well at all I they do not improve by tomorrow I feel like I should put them out of their misery.

It's times like this I wish I had a qt/hospital tank.

Jarred the last three betta fry so I can start a new spawn soon, and I siphoned off an absurd amount of poop from my qt tank. Seriously... plecos can POOP! Two inch long juvies and I am pretty sure I sucked up roughly their body weight in poop yesterday and then the same amount today.
