Later today I am going to clean all the tanks in the fish room. Have to wait until my boyfriend gets home - I need a second person to man the sink end of the python. In the meantime I will get all the small containers done and the 56 gallon. And I need to start mixing water for the salt tank. I think I need to start pulling snails out of my 56 also, because I have had a few mysterious deaths and I need to figure out what is going on and fix it. I've lost 5 female bettas, a bn pleco, and all but one neon tetra over the last couple weeks, and I've only found 3 bodies. I have so many snails the fish just vanish in the night. None have really acted sick before dying, either, although I have one sick looking platy now.

I have 3 long fin leopard danios and yeah- they are SUPER active! I'm thinking about getting 4 more.


Today I spray painted the light on my 35 gal hex. It had black plastic casing. But the tank trim is tan. I thought it looked a bit off so I painted it tan. Looks like it belongs there now.

Today I took everything out of my 55 and cleaned it. The water was dirty (particles), so I know the filter was dirty. The gobies make so much sand fly around, it has to be cleaned often and the sand is black so it gets dirty. The did a 50+% water change, cleaned the filter inside and out, scrubbed the walls on the inside, took everything out and cleaned it off, vacuumed real good, removed and then replanted the plants as I rearranged when I put things back in. Tank looks good, water clean, fish swimming happily. I have now officially cleaned out and rescaped 4 tanks in 4 days. One more to go, just the little 10 gallon, though. Nothing but a small water change and vac needed there. I feel accomplished.

Danios - LOL! Fast little buggers and hard to catch, too!

Brought my sick looking platy to my LFS and the owner agreed with my diagnosis of internal parasites. So I fed the whole tank with food soaked in prazi pro and tomorrow I plan another massive water change before I dose with the parasite clear I bought today. Since the meds should be in for a while I want to be sure the water is nice and fresh before I dose anything.

Think I am finished switching things up for awhile!

Just got finished culling my Blue Velvets, there were a couple with red on them and a couple Rili Shrimp, so now there are 5 of those in the 2.5G.

Cleaned the substrate and the prefilter and filters in the 2.5G as well, did a 50% wc before cleaning the filters and then stirred up some gunk so did another 50% pwc.

Only found one, my favorite at least, OEBT left in the tank, so got her into the Fire Red Cherry tank. If she makes it while I am gone, I will get her some more friends.

The Blue, Blue Velvets went to their designated home in the 12G Edge and will be with the Tangerine Tigers also to be picked up after I get back from my trip.

Added water to the other tanks that needed it.

Finally got the table lamp with the grow light over to the table with the Chi tank so the plants won't die. It has the broken light switch handle, so I can't turn it on. Needed it to be moved over there anyway as I have to set all the lights up to timers.

Replanted some of the DHG and a couple plants which got knocked out of the sand in the 6.6 Edge from the albino baby BN Plecos.

Noticed I have a little bit of growth from the Downoi in the 12G Edge, all the other times they have been eaten by something in the tank(s). Pretty excited about that, they are so pretty when they get big!

The other day I added a lone Blackskirt which was a rescue fish, into the 72G with 3 other Blackskirts... Boy did I upset the apple cart! They are chasing around the tank like they have gone mad! Haven't quite figured out if it because they are happy, like a mating ritual or angry...
