What Did I Do?

Water changes as usual. Half or more of the water is replaced just about weekly. Tank sizes range from 20 gallons with 8 Rosey Danios and 3 Fancy Guppies. To the 60 gallon with several Plecos, Corydoras, Platys and more Fancy Guppies. 6 tanks in all, an extra 55 to grow out my favorite floating plant, Hornwort.

Here's a tip. Change out a lot of tank water and do it routinely, like every 2 weeks at least, more often is better and you'll have no tank water problems. that's means no unhealthy fish or sickly plants.

Just a couple of thoughts.

Found 2 fish Saddleback Clowns 2/$15. from Sustainable Aquatics. These are medium small right now and will be great in the larger tank when I set it up pretty soon.

They are swimming together and look great! Lights are off for them to chill so pics later.

Cant wait to see the clowns. Looks like you had fun! Those are some nice looking tanks and the macroalgaes you picked up are looking good! Plans for that tank? I always wanted to set up a fully macroalgae tank for seahorses!

The Clowns are cool, kinda wish I had got the black and white ones...since they stay a bit smaller. I wish I had $ to get both, blasted auto repairs.

Ok Paul, just a sorta dark pic of them. They are sure busy little guys, I fed them and they didn't really care for my food, it is pelleted and I bet they will eat flake. They ate a couple of them, but would take them and spit them out, lol. Trying some Marine flake....., yup, ate like they were starving! Thank goodness I got a free container at macna. They have to like it, it has a picture of a clown fish!



As for the Algae tank, it is all just thrown in, I hadn't really decided to use it and keep it as a MacroAlgae tank, but after today that is exactly what it will be. I am going to fix it up, I have Feather Calerpa, a little bit of Grape and a 1.5" chunk of a flat nub like cup sort of one in the Calerpa Vase, I will combine them into a better scaped tank. A simple, fun little garden.

Weren't those long fin clowns incredible! We got our picture taken with robbie redneck from tanked who was just walking around. We got a ton of tee shirts and food samples and rock rubble and reef plugs and my friend won a 5 coral prize pack from ORA and got them out of that awesome round tank they have! I got to talk with the bML and FINNEX guys about lighting and my friend bought 5-10 corals. Had a really awesome time. Hope MACNA comes back to the beautiful denver convention center again!

Yeah, sounds like they had fun. I bought a new timer for one of my lights and woke up with the light on this morning. Yesterday afternoon when I hooked it up, I set the current time to 5:00 AM and not 5:00 PM. Duh moment.
