just found my engineer goby in the sump
I have no idea how he got there as I have 1/4 inch vinyl mesh over the overflow hoses and my engineer goby isn't small almost 16 inch long and his body girth is a little bigger than my thumb
my overflow hose is 1 1/4 inch I'm dumb founded on how he didn't get stuck

60 % clean on my elephant nose tank today, he's been chasing his tail again and caught it on something he's made a right mess of it really torn. So clean water for the next few days hopefully it will heal. Rinsed out filters and moved his pipe to give him room when he's being stupid!

Added a capfull of bioboost and did 1 gallon water change (all I had left). I am very sick and cannot go out to get more RO water. Did 25% change yesterday. All parameters were perfect. Today ammonia was 1.0 in my 20G so I did not feed them tonight and did at least the 1 gallon change and bioboost to hopefully help a tiny bit while I am ill. I also, netted out the poop that I could get. I am pretty sure I was letting them over eat and then giving a snack before dinner, that led to the sudden ammonia spike. They do not have any symptoms of poisoning, and are playing fine. I hope it stays that way and ammonia goes away. I will test again tomorrow. Goodnight everyone.

I fished the skeleton of a tiger barb out. A SKELETON. I couldn't believe it, but between the pleco and the rainbow shark I'm not entirely surprised. Oh well, guess I'm down to 12 now.

I just cleaned up as much as I could, today. I also added my Apongeton bulbs. ine that has been growing. I forgot it outside last night, I guess it got cold here in Ohio. So I hope it did not die. But, I dumped them all in the tank and hoping for the best.

Fyi your cory cats will NOT eat poop, they will however eat leftover food.
