Well! Sure sounds like a tasty meal!

Today is the usual. Fed fish. Contemplated water change schedule. Dreaded cleaning the 55 gallon again. lol.

Also, I'm gonna make the most expensive Amazon.com order yet. I need some CO2 stuff, equipment for the Betta tank, fertilizers, and maybe some lights!! Whew!

Busy tank day!
I did a 50% pwc on Alfred's tank, in my office, adding a wee bit of salt to help combat the beginnings of fin rot. Also replaced his heater with a new one that seems to be much more effective. And since I was mucking around anyway, I re-scaped it.

Came home and tackled my 29 gallon. Tests showed a bit of ammonia still, so I did a 50% pwc on that, emptying the buckets into my veggie patch. Added fresh water with both stability and prime because my tap water has 0.25 ammonia in it right now. Took out the crushed coral I put in on the weekend because my new pH test says I am at 7.2.

Fed my neons and my son's betta, Jupiter. Fed Alfred a wee bit before I left the office, too.

Stared at my tank, trying to decide if my plants are happy. I think they are. Watched bubbles drift up from my water change. Tried to work out if I could justify staring at my tank more instead if working more. Decided to up-date my tank journal and some other threads instead, but I am running out nor excuses now.

Fed the crew and ordered some root tabs and new plants. This online shopping thing is starting to get addicting.

I'm very sorry for your loss.....



I fed my RCS tank dried earthworm flakes..... talk about going nuts! Not only did I have a ton of shrimp, of all ages, going postal on me, all the berried females came out, too. Didn't know I had so many. I'm about to have a baby boom!

Got my new tanks today! So today I'll be spending the day scrubbing and scrapping to get these things clean, plus they have been outside for a while so they both need new silicone

I put an algae tab in the 55 for the nerite snails. They ignored them completely. All the fish seem to like them. I guess I didn't need to feed them flakes this morning.

Finished tearing down my 5 gal and am cleaning it so that I can turn it into a pico reef in a few weeks. Or whenever I buy rock and seawater.

Did about a 70% change on my 20 gallon today and will do the other tanks tomorrow.

I have fed my fish some flake.

Then I'm off to the LFS to get some 39w T5HO LIGEGLO tubes for my lighting upgrade.
