Thanks guys! I had a really nice weekend and the aquarium was awesome. Kjacks, that's sad! New Orleans isn't half as bad as people make it out to be. Just like anywhere else, you just have to be mindful of where you are and keep away from bad areas. I took tons of pictures! I will post them when I'm not exhausted, lol. I met up with an old friend last night and we were out way past the closing time of most of the bars. My boyfriend and I watched the sunrise from the balcony of our hotel, and had to check out by 11. I am beat! All I am doing with my aquariums for the rest of the day is watching them! Or more likely falling asleep in front of them.

I'm keeping you and everyone on your area in my thoughts. I hope you make it through all this rough weather ok. Being in southern Louisiana, I know how terrifying the possibility of flooding is. Just stay safe!

Pray for us, (my family is alright, but apprehensive) so many people around us have had life changing experiences, in the local areas most water is contaminated and roads and bridges have been washed out and made unstable. The rivers and streams have gone way over the banks. This area has a bunch of water because of the rivers, it is a waterway more or less.

They are saying 500 year flood. We have had as much water fall in 4 days as we normally have ALL year.

So if I end up not posting for awhile, that is why.
My thoughts are with you and your family for a safe return to "normal". I spoke with my friend in Denver and he said he was standing in the sunshine but his rental house near Boulder was under water. I guess you just had to be in the right place at the right time. Stay safe.

Lots of activity! In my 55 gal I did a 50% PWC and three Mollys were rehomed to another tank.

Went to the local chain pet store that has really good and inexpensive fish. For less than $9 (everything was on special) I got 4 fish:

I added two swordtails (a male and female) to my 55 gal. tank that had two rescue females in it already. I went ahead and bought the single neon tetra that the store had left as I have a school of 8 of them already and he will be happier in my tank. I also bought a small female blue/ 3 spot gourami to go with my adult female gourami. Hoping they get along but have a tank to rehome the little one if necessary.

Well yesterday I did a 50% pwc on my 55gal fathead minnow tank. Big Meanie and the Professor were both pleased. Pruned back the wisteria and removed alot of the hornwort. It was getting a little crazy. Looked at the 35 gal hex and decided I'd wait on cleaning til later this week when I bought it a new filter. The filter it came with is old and crappy. Anyway- power flicked off last night and the filter finally went kaput. So I got a Marineland penguin 200 today. It's rated for up to 50 gallons. So that will be a nice upgrade from what was already on it. I'll be doing a 15 gallon water change and setting up the new filter as soon as I'm done with this post!

Just did the water change and turned on the new filter. That thing is a beast! I'll be doing water changes every other day for at least the next week and keep an eye out for any spikes in ammo or trites. Will also only feed every other day so as not to cause any unnecessary waste. Yay for new filters and beautiful tanks!

Finally completed my DIY spray bar for my Fluval 406. Man what a difference. I can't believe they just do not include spray bars with filters. I finally have a perfect current through my tank that's not blasting my fish or leaving dead spots w/o circulation.

I don't have pics of it, but we all know what they look like!

I worked on my aquascape in my freshwater tank. I'm making a dwarf hairgrass carpet. Below is a picture from two days ago, and then a picture of it today.
