Water changes on both tanks yesterday, my two female platys are pregnant again... Found a RCS I thought had been eaten so she's now in with the fry.

Just finished my weekly large PWC on all my tanks, and sat down for the night just to get a robocall from the water company to boil all my water before drinking.

I checked their website, a sample from 6/15 showed elevated levels and they're over chlorinating to fix it. I hope the dose of prime was enough to take care of it. I'll be testing my water in the morning.

You can always overdose prime, better than chancing the chlorine.

Took all the Anubias out of my tank after my Africans that are growing up decided to tear them all apart. Then I did a water change just to clear things up a bit.

Did an 18 gal pwc on my 55. Took out a little hornwort and java moss to take to my sister tomorrow as well as a couple MTS. Hopefully the airlines don't care that it's packed in my checked bag. Dosed my API leaf zone.

Yea didn't wanna do it but they were getting beat up bad and all torn up. I had to face reality and do it. It actually looks more I dunno like where they would come from. I know the area of Malawi really has no green.

As to not go off topic. Here's the link to my tread about it. It has pics. Lemme know what ya think.

Got rid of all my Anubias! What do you think?
