Word from the wise. Kissing gouramis fall into the "1 or 5" rule as I understand it.

A pair does not end well under normal circumstances. Don't know the quantity, but given their adult size most keep a lone kisser.

Edit: fed the goldfish broccoli seems to be taking off now

Thanks for the kind words. I did not realize how much the plants had grown until I pulled them out. I only used about 25-30% of them. I would have done an RAOK giveaway but the amount of BBA and the process of separating the good, bad, and ugly was daunting. This is a big change. I actually get to see the substrate.

My Sunday is always busy with WC.
50% WC on Kuhli tank 9g out 10g in with top up.
Community 20g, took 9g out added 10g, put meds in (stem plants need a trim badly).
Comet 35g (i know too small for them) 40%
I have to dose ferts yet too.

During the day i did a smorgas board day in terms of feeding. I like to give them a day of plentiful feeding when a WC is due. I wonder why my Kuhli loaches are tapered like cigars though.
Comets- Flakes, Crushed algae pellet, watermelon chunk and enough corn to fill their mouths to finish the day. Been neglecting them in terms of variety for a week or so. This was kind of a delayed Easter treat. Greedy buggers are still begging.
Kuhli & Shrimp tank- Sinking pellets, Bloodworms, Peas and Watermelon chunks. Easter for them too but they're easier to give varied frozen food to so less neglected.
Community- Peas, Watermelon, Pellets and Flakes.
Betta- Blackworm, Bloodworm, Watermelon and Pea.

I got no work done on my sump which had been the goal for my afternoon. I had planned to at least have my broken glass bits sorted into size and cut to fit a wier style system but went out for lunch and took 4 hours. I wish i had 4 hour lunch breaks on work days.

Did 35% water change, moved my scape so my plant wouldn't be forced down constantly by the filters. Fed some yummy bloodworms too.

Edit: also, I skimmed out all the poop from the last 3-4 days. They have been less productive (or my filters are just catching up) so it hasn't needed it. I took out a "cave" a few days ago and the tank has been much cleaner.

50% water change thinned out some plants. Can't wait for new growth!

It's been raining recently, so I drained out a few gallons from the aquaponics system outside yesterday, it's finally cycled and the broccoli plants are starting to really grow. I have to feed the goldfish twice or 3 times a day.
