I just freaked out because the power went out. Just came back on and no damage done!

Today I skipped feeding to clean out the fish's digestive tracts, nothing too serious. Gonna do some other stuff to battle Planaria.

Talking General Maintenance

Maintenance Activities:
1) Removed Power heads (3), Cleaned with toothbrush.

2) Cleaned collection cup and neck of my Reef Octopus nwb150 Protein Skimmer.

3) Daily 4 gallon water change of saltwater. (Attempting to raise from 1.023 to 1.024).

4) Started planning a sump redesign.

5) Monitored fish activities

6) Adjusted standby time for protein skimmer by +1:00 minute on ReefKeeper to avoid water rejection upon standby restart.

7) Added a large piece of Coral Rock. My Goby loves this as it provides a multitude of caves and hiding places he enjoys.

Rescued my daughter's green spotted puffer from the filter intake. Poor thing was pinned against it with one fin stuck in a slot. Seems to be doing OK now though.
After the rescue I covered the intake with some filter pad material to prevent further torture.

Flirted with Apache, my featherfin cat. He's been much braver recently and doesn't scoot away when I approach the tank. Now, he'll come right up to the glass with the other fish when I go over to talk to them. He still amazes me. He's such a handsome guy......

Added 3 long fin leopard danios to my 55gal yesterday. My daughter named them Leo, Danny, and Spot. In a few weeks I will add 2 or 3 more.
