50% change on the water in my main tank. Still no clue what turned up on the glass. Seems to be taken care of with the combination of the glass magnet and the gravel vac, but still...

One? Having one tank is possible? How?

I've just enjoyed my nice clean tanks today, at least until I went to work. Did all the cleaning yesterday and the day before.

I'm a little embarassed to be related to this guy.......

Did some close observation on the 16 gallon. The corys were hiding out the last few days, which is not their typical behavior. Ends up the heater setting had been bumped down and the tank was cooler than it should've been. Once I readjusted the heater to proper temp and hung two thermometers to keep track, everyone was back to their old selves.

Pays to understand what's normal for your species.

It was freaky. I have a small breeding box that I keep my small endlers until they are big enough to live outside it. Its slats in the bottom are big enough so they can fit through, so I stretched pantyhose to prevent their escape. Then today, BANG! Three of the 12 or so were outside the box. I saw that the pantyhose had slipped off a corner of the box. I quickly pulled it back over the corner, and caught two of the escaped endlers. The third one I tried to catch, but then, POOF! He disappeared. So I've lost 2 endlers, one was an experiment to see if they were big enough to put in the big tank, but he... didn't survive long. Found him stuck to the filter intake, dead as a doornail.

30% PWC on my 29 gallon. Pruned my java ferns. I am letting the daughter plants float, so now when I go look at my tank, I see the ferns floating and freak out a second because I think its a causality. Also did a quick gravel vac in preparation for my plant delivery.
