Lets see what did I do with my tanks today:
Moved the 75 Gallon African Tank to a new location to fit in the 125. Got the 125 cleaned last night and sand in today,filled and getting ti started on cycling so I can add some more Africans. Set up a new breeding tank 29 gallon for the Daffodils to have there own home now so I quit losing the fry. Other then that not much!

Pwc on my shrimp tank. Removed loads of frogbit it's literally over running both of my tanks! Also removed some red ramshorn snail's they're driving me insane with all the breeding so I put them in with my elephant nose who loves to snack on them.
Autumn congratulations on the babies Yay!

55 gallon elephant nose tank.
16 gallon vampire shrimp and snails

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Nothing today with the tank but a trimming is in order soon.
Went the the local Habitat for Humanity ReStore looking for replacement interior doors for my house and found this. Listed at $150 for tank, stand, and canopy. Appears to be a 75g or 90g. Did not have a tape measure on me. Predrilled with ~1" bulkhead fittings for the return and overflow. Definitely used for SW because of a wet dry filter's salt spray pattern in the cabinet and the salt crust in the tank. Seams looked clean and intact. Center brace was bowed downward and cracked. Some minor water damage in the cabinet. Generous space in the cabinet and canopy. I would have no place to put this but it looks like a good deal for someone.

It's only been in for 12 hours so too early to tell. I bought one 100ml bag and it was only about $10, so whether it's overpriced by volume or not, it wasn't much money to get it started for a 20g.

I run Purigen in my 150 gallon. I always thought my tank was clear but after like three days I noticed it just looked unbelievably crisp and clean. All the colors were extremely clear, it was a noticeable difference. It's not something that is essential, especially if you think your water is clear already and are happy with it, but once you have it you notice the difference. I love having it in the filter now.

I'll try to circle back in a few weeks. I did notice today that the purigen was already a little darker than yesterday.
