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.
Sorry to hear things aren't good i hope they improve for you.

did a huge water change and cleanup on the 55 gallon, have a cyanobacteria outbreak going on. moved two of the angels to their own tank so they can "get it on" in peace

did a huge water change and maintenance on mom's 28 gallon bowfront. she's had fish dying lately. there's "stuff" in the tank. I think one of the grandkids "fed" the fish

Her 75 gallon is semi-aggressive. Had a pictus catfish die a few days ago, she didnt realize the pleco was missing until today....

Changed the tanks for the baby blue crays and cleaned it first. Found a crack in the original one, so today was looked like the perfect day to make the switch, lol. Was going to do it anyway...

Changed water on one other lil tank. Added water to the OEBT tank and the Betta Chi.

Made about 5-6 Christmas moss rocks and Subwassertang rock. Decided to use some of it and see if it would look amazing after it grows out. Have just enough Christmas Moss left for the DW piece. Need to get a little piece of stainless steel screen to stitch a bunch of Subwassertang to it.

Wasn't a good day at work, very very stressed. Came home and did wc on both tanks. I wasn't paying attention and spilled I'm not sure how much water. Other than that, everybody is accounted for. Considering adding some ottos to the 10g betta tank but not sure yet, he's a killer.

Land Plants In Aquarium

Emersed a Chinese Evergreen in my 38 G. Removed the two Hagen AC 50s and replaced them with two internal Tetra Whisper 10s and dropped the water level to make room for the plant leaves. The 10s are much smaller than the 50s, of course. It didn't take long for the Evergreen roots to take in the nitrogen from the fish waste. Water chemistry is fine, just nitrates in the mid 20 ppm range. Just use the small filters for surface movement for gas exchange, anyway. Fish and aquatic plants are fine. A 50 percent water change and replace the filter media every couple of weeks and I'm done.

Recently found a steal for a 75g tank to upgrade my SA cichlids. I cleaned it and need to re-seal it and find a place for it (empty out dresser, etc.) Been working on that so much lately, I must have been neglecting my African cichlids. I found my OB dead this morning immediate water change and vac.

Relocated our betta bowl to my daughter's room after discussing his needs and personality, removed heater as a trial

Added floaters (pistia stratiotes) and ferts to our 6-gal tall tetra tank

I obsessed over our now 3-day old shrimp tank, a 2-gal long (thread pending)

Started a new thread here too: My Grow Bucket "tank"
