Took 30% out and put 35% in to top the evaporation gap. Tested parameters, added more pH Down. Fed them their flakes and watched them be happy.

Your ph will be constantly bouncing like that, better to just leave it alone unless it's off the charts.

Varied feeding and some big WC for every tank, then added meds to one tank. Prep work on a sump, glass cut to size for partitions then sanding some glass i cut poorly. The battle against greenwater in my kuhli tank goes poorly despite having a dedicated filter with floss only to catch it from the water column. The filter is effective but it has a tough fight. I changed the floss today and i could have painted my walls green with the floss i removed.

Through the week i think the last of my shrimp died in the tank. It's not a good week for the tank because i found a dried up Kuhli under the stand while tidying up after WC too. i saw two of the babies that had almost reached maturity after the last WC so maybe some young shrimp are left but i think they are on borrowed time too. Kuhlis seem healthy enough though.

Pwc on the smaller tanks and clean out the Chi tank all the way to the bottom, then go to real work.

I wanted to get it in the 7 point range. It was way up. Wanted to lower so I can lower ammonia. I have a pH balancer solution that helps keep it at whatever you put it at so you have less WCs. I think it is called Easy Balance by Tetra. I am just being a little scientist. Nothing that will harm the fish, though. Just experimenting. When these fish are gone one day I may get different ones. So I am just checking everything out. : )

While you're cycling, just keep doing 50% water changes. 35% changes do a little for water chemistry. Just keep changing water to keep ammonia down. A stable water chemistry is better than an ideal water chemistry.

I typically do 35% every time and it keeps it about the same. I have a 20G tank and only 7 gallons of jugs to maintain water in. I still live at home due to mental problems, and mom says, "7 is plenty". Apparently 3 more jugs will "fill the room". But, if 50% is more necessary I guess I can sneak 3.

Big clean on my elephant nose tank added new plants for him looks a lot better.
Got my eye on a new 63 gallon tank with stand for him not sure whether to buy it as I'm concerned the move might kill him since he needs a mature tank
