What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Yesterday: found a female guppy dead

Today: turned off the lights this morning in case someone has velvet, and checked in on them just now and my male guppy's tail is a mess!
Posted a thread asking for help. Don't want my tank to die

Your RCS should grace the tank with plenty of babies for you!!! Love the snails, nice looking.

Well I will be boiling my rocks today for the start of my SW low budget project. After that I will be setting up a tub and starting to get the coral rocks seeded.

Maybe if I have enough time will clean my Fluval FX-5 filter. Always need a bunch of towels for when I cause a flood. Not my favorite task. And yes it should seem so simple, but somehow I always make a mistake and make a HUGE mess at least once during the process. I keep swearing to make a laminated step by step check list... Thank goodness it is a simple filter, or I would really be in trouble!

Thank you dear! That's what I'm hoping lots of babies!
Good luck with the SW tank one thing I've always wanted to own but I'm not brave enough.
And enjoy your filter cleaning :p

Well I am very excited to say that the filter cleaning went perfectly. I didn't even flood anything or spill water. That Fluval FX-5 is a workhorse and although it was really dirty inside, it didn't even smell!!! So I am very pleased with it and also hoping my gently rinsing will preserve my BB.

Yes it is just cleaning a filter but it was surprising it went the way it was supposed to!!! Previously, both my floor and myself looked like a swamp with a drown rat.

That's great! Anything to make cleaning easier makes you want to do it more I find. And/or dread it less lol

Did 35% WC. Fed bloodworms. Skimmed out what little poop was in the tank. Tested pH and ammonia levels. Added a dose of pH Down to lower it just a tiny bit.
