Swapped out 1/3 of my gravel for black sand in a 40g long SeaClear tank and cleaned it. Tank is 6 weeks old, I have two neons that have survived for 3 weeks after PetCo told me to use them to cycle, they sold me 4. Can't wait to gets Corys, that is why I did the switch.

Pwc on my elephant nose tank and filters rinsed.
Pwc on my giant African shrimp tank they seem to be enjoying the extra filter so hopefully it'll make a difference for them.

Busy day with the aquariums. First i did some shopping for much needed buckets. For a while i've used the same few buckets to empty and refill all tanks. New system has a bucket to empty each tank into then i use 25l buckets to refill which will now be strictly used for refills. Need a couple more 25l buckets still.

50% WC on 3 tanks, added fungus meds as a precaution on one that i removed sick fish from earlier this week. 25% WC on QT tank. Meds and a 33% WC on hospital tank. I changed my schedule so that i do my WC going from healthy tanks first to sick last. I still only have one gravel vac after treading on the suction tube and cracking my smaller vac (which was better for cleaning dirted tanks) so i'm dropping the functioning one in boiling water between tanks for the moment. Hope this keeps disease from spreading.

Lastly i did a big trim on my established 20g. Probablky have about 50 stems in there and had to trim half and replant the better ones to fill out some spaces i emptied last week. Then I took pictures of my three healthy tanks.

Filled waters in all the tanks from evaporation, cleaned some moss that was growing in a cup which the moss had string algae. Had kept it in the dark for a few days and it seems to be gone.

Going to move the Harlequin Rasboras from QT to the 72G and the Blue Ram over to the 16G in the morning. Looking for a couple more Rams now.

There are a couple people breeding Electric Blue and Regular and Golden Rams locally, so I am hopeful for some at a reasonable price. Also the Colorado Aquarium Society is having their spring sale in a couple weeks and I asked for the day off!!! Usually I would be working
