Did a 50% change on my 125, my three apistogramma tanks and my shrimp tank. Plus feedings and other daily stuff. Also tested my tap for the first time since moving. Came out at about 7.6ph and 0 nitrate which I was pretty excited about since I came from 8.0ph and 10 nitrate. My girlfriends well came out at 8.2ph and close to 40 nitrate and off the charts hardness. So we are glad to have these new parameters

12G is now clear, sparkling clear, and the DW slime is all gone. The 2 big(ger) Mystery snails are still cruising around eating things, I think one more day and I will give them a treat, maybe Saturday.

I waited to get my Tangerine Tiger Shrimp till the tank was good. So I think we are pretty much there. Emailed the breeder to get the ball rollin.

Also need to finalize an order for some new fish!

Also talked to a fellow hobbyist locally who is looking for some Ramshorns and Baby Mystery Snails, going to share them and pick up some Christmas Moss as a thank you and maybe some other stems. Their snail Gary was lost in the midst of a substrate change and the little child who cared about Gary (the pond snail) is sad. We are gonna fix that on Saturday!



Pretty excited actually!

Snails and PFRS...nice.
Glad your Otos and snails have minty fresh breath! I'm thinking that it was the heat during transport that may have caused the leaves to melt (and become tasty treats). Hope the moss fared better.
I left my lights on last night. I was watching the Ravens-Broncos game last night and turned off the timer so I could check out the tank at half time and forgot about it. This morning the plants were pearling and fish were in a daze looking like "What time is it?".
Nothing for the rest of the day but tomorrow I might take out all of the Bacopa and do a big rescape. Not liking how the tank looks ATM.

Added another 8kg of gravel substrate, installed a bubble wall under the gravel, did a 30% water change and tried a different style of lighting

Had a panic, ! The internal built filter housing on my 80litre fell off during cleaning ! So I just binned it and replaced it with the internal eheim I had on my 200 litre , thank god I removed that when I did ! Fortunately all the media fit too, so I did a 50% water change to get rid of some of the debris that escaped , and did a 80% water change on my tiny fry tank , so we are all good for another week

It looks like I've beaten the ich in my QT, but of course the treatment will continue its full course.

Did weekly pwc on my DT. Everything looks good. Corys are much more visible now that the excess dwarf sag has been cleared out.
