Not sure. After the WC was feisty and mixing it up with one of the other tetras (that side by side shimmy type of "dance"). Ate some at feeding time. Then later was holding a stationary position at the side of the tank as opposed to swimming along the tank with the other fish. The tetras are either 5 or 7 years old (forgot) so I figure that is a nice lifespan for them.
Later on, went to visit the tank just to check out things. Settled down in the chair and then "click!"...timer turned out lights.

I hope the tetra recovers, fresh2o, but you are right, that is a long life for a small tetra.

As to the light timer, yes, many times I've been watching happily when lights out arrives!

Did a 50% change on the AP system because I think I may have had hormone build up that needed to be diluted. Plants address growing great, I have my first proper growing with several other buds that are growing into peppers currently. I'm sure the goldies appreciate the cold water too they've been swimming into the pump outlet the whole time I've been filling. Yesterday did a 50% change on the 55.

My power head comes in today, so that will be going in the tank once I receive it.

Fed the fish, took Squirt out of the breeder box and removed the fry. We now have 5 guppy fry! It's hard to believe that less than a year ago we found Squirt in the tank and were able to catch her. My male passed away about a week ago so these fry are the new generation

60 % clean on my giant African shrimp tank got up this morning and noticed one of my female shrimp was dead she seemed to be having difficulties with molting. Everyone else is fine.

Just got a maxi jet pro and put it in my 36g mbuna/peacock tank. It is waay too strong, but I diffused it in the rock work. I may return it though am get a smaller version. Overall it is pretty good. I think I'll use it for water changes too.

Ordered some plants and cholla wood from Planted Aquariums Central. Got my order in before 6/11 (the company is taking a short break for a few days).
Order 3 cholla wood, some Pogostemon erectus, Pogostemon helferi, and Rotala wallichii. I need a new center piece plant. So I got two. The Downoi is to complement the AR mini in the front. Will post pics when they get planted.

Took pics and posted them to my "Something Saltwater" album.

Checked everybody in all the tanks and fed a little.
