So!! What did you do to your tank today?

So there is another forum of a different topic that I visit frequently, that has a"what did you do to your _______ lately? " thread. I love it cause its fun to get ideas and eye candy out of. Just figured I'd give it a try here.
So today I scraped down my sump refugium walls so I could see in from the sides. I cleaned the DT tank glass pretty good and spit shined my skimmer. Oh and a water change. :d

For the past few days we have noticed one of our neon tetras not schooling with the others. This morning during feeding we observed this one fish come up for food and noticed it's girth, it's quite plump and swimming with an irregular, jerky quality.

I was easily able to net it, which should be a sign itself, and isolated it from the other fish. Upon first putting it in quarantine, it "played dead" and rolled over on it's side motionless. After a few minutes and a gentle tap with a chopstick, it started spastically darting about and then settled on a plant, again listing sideways. It does not look good...

Here's a quick video
Notice how it is jerking movements and orientation, it's unlike any of our others.

I think we'll see what a day in the QB (quarantine bucket) brings

Bought a couple peppermint shrimp for a rock I bought that had aptasia. Hopefully they work. Had some awesome hairy mushrooms and only cost the price if the rock ($12).

I have fry! Woke up this morning ( more like afternoon as I didn't get home till after 2) and there was fry in my pregnant platys tank! Counting 10 so far but I know that can change especially since I have tons of plants in the tank. That's the exciting news for the day!
Cleaning my 30 gallon in a bit.

Thanks

It's condition seems improved and it's acting more like a normal fish/neon tetra

I'll give it a few days and hope for the best

Today I did water changes and planted some crypts in my 29g. Nothing exciting.
