Hi done an emergency water change as i had lost a few shrimps I believe it was where i put in a new filter Sunday and had a mini cycle on the tank? All the remaining shrimps and fish seem to be very happy and feeding? Also had to clean out me fluval edge as the filter was slowing down! Removed some more snails via a snail trap

Changed 45 gallons of water on a newly cycled 75g, weekly 5g water change on my cube, and cleaned up a few things for a QT I will be setting up soon. I need a nap...

Did a good cleaning of my 5 gal. Thinking about turning it into a pico reef. Going to do a water change/cleaning of the 55 later tonight.

Did my 10g weekly pwc on the 55. I rubbed down the glass to remove any bits of algae. I've discovered that I really don't like my tanks to be even the slightest bit messy. I'm so glad sand is so easy to clean. I even used a razor blade to scrape the glass tops. There was some water buildup going on. I figured I should just do it and not let it get too bad. After I was done cleaning I fed the fishies a little bit of flake, and also fed my 2 platy fry some super crushed up flake. I'm a happy girl now. I can sit back and enjoy my fish tanks. Oh! And I got the ok from the husband to turn my 5 gal into a seawater tank. Hooray!!

Scrubbed the inside glass and did a 50% water change on my 75g African Cichlid tank. Also replaced the polishing pads in the AC 110.

Did my 5 gallon water change and changed out the filter floss in my BC29 also.
