What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Got two gbrs for my 55g today! My Bolivians seem to be getting along with them nicely so far

The picture posted looks exactly like "cotton wool" mouth fungus, which isn't a fungus. That's what I would aim at. It doesn't have to be your water quality or tank cleanliness. (Most people get defensive over such issues, there really is no need) we all love our water just as much as the fish, at least the people on this page must be keen on water. It's good to know water but. . .

Many factors can cause this, stress of handling, abuse from tank mates, water change (tank moving etc) simply catching the fish is enough.
It is treatable, many products available.

Apart from that, hope your fish are well

So should I treat the tank with medication everyone else looks great?

Was busy last night prepping my tank for new (plant) arrivals. Here is my tank 7 days ago:
I decided to remove a bunch of broadleaf chain sword (30+), dwarf sag, and moss:
I've placed them in 6.6 g holding tank for now. Either going to the LFS, RAOK, or compost pile:
Here is the messy tank afterwards:
A couple of hours later things cleared up:

Here are the lego legs on the light fitting. Not really lego...too big Sorry for the blurry picture. The tank looks darker than it actually is too.

Still have to make a plan with the ballast. At the moment it's just dangling off the side which is not that great.

Thanks!
We got some bamboo today for the betta tank light, but it's not really big enough to make a proper reflector.

Bought a new 40g filter in preperation for my next tank. Shoots water out the top of my 20g tank with the regular power head. Without mods I have to use a spray bar which sits 2 inches over the tank or turn the filter on it's side to run it in my 20g. I just added some tubing to place the spray bar below the surface in the end though. 60g worth of filtration in a 20g tank. Did anyone order some overkill.
