Jeez I haven't been on AA in a very long time! Everything is so busy lately. Anyways, today I set up the sump for my cube. My build thread is on here if anybody wants to follow. It's boring now, but I have some great plans.

Completed drip acclimation of 7 new fish in the 20g. Now i'm well overstocked so i plan to spend a couple of hours setting up my next tank now. New arrivals are much paler than their old tankmates but looking much healthier since they have been in a tank with filtered water. No idea how long they went without a filter but they weren't well when i spotted them. New BP does not like being fondled by Khulis

Taking this time to sit back and stare at it.
Looking great Fresh20

WC on grow out tank - need to move a couple out that are big enough to go in with the adults, will do that tonight. Fed them crushed flake and prepared egg yolk for dinner time.

Did WC on my sons Black Moor tank, and fed. thinking he may need to be rehomed soon as son has lost interest and I have more than enough to do with the other tanks..

WC for my bettas, fed and watched them.

I get sick of the work with WC's - running too many tanks I think!! Once these babies are grown out that will eliminate that tank, going to leave the guppies to deliver in the tank now as I am getting overstocked. But then when I sit back and see them all happy and active after it's worth it.
I'll be up to three running tanks by the end of today. Will cycle the filter in my overstocked running tank for the 20g i'm about to set up and divide the fish in about 2-3 weeks.

It's easy to get busy before and after Christmas. I had an uneventful Christmas period this year but i did notice a lot of regulars on here seemed to go MIA. Welcome back.

Added a betta to my betta tank, went to a LFS that's closing in a few days and picked up their last Otto, a gold apisto, and a snail for my 29g and a moonlight gourami and another snail for my 55g.

My problem is that I'm a sucker for any fish that look at me 'begging me' to take them home... Sigh....

Just got my Seachem Prime and Excel today in the mail (less than 24 hours from the time I ordered until I got it!). Did a dosing of Excel in my 5.5g and 10g--excited to see how this stuff works since it's my first time using it

I also got the okay on getting the 20g Long *small victory dance* I will probably be able to go get it later this week!

Ordered a Current Satellite LED Plus 24"-36" from Petco to replace my T5HO. We'll see how much I, and the fish of course, like it.

Today was just a water test on the 4@ and the 20 QT. But....... Yesterday I added 2 new Discus to the 40 and 3 plants. A swordtail a some kind of fern and a something else. Sorry I'm not too well balanced on the plant names but my fish guy said they would all help all the way around. Since the plant addition my ammonia has dropped a tad (👍&#128077 but my pH spiked a bit. I thought it would go down with the newbies. I also traded a buddy my 1/2 cord of firewood for his self contained 6 gal nano sw. I know it's much harder to go small rather than large bc of the parameters but I'm a renter and not a home owner. My landlord is cool with the 40 so far so I'm not gonna push it.
