Today I discovered that I should go purchase some vegetables this weekend because my tomatoes won't be here for a while. This started when out looked like some of my goldfish appeared to be "gasping" at the surface when I went out to feed them, so naturally I checked for ammonia and nitrite- nada. Then I checked everything and believe that they were trying to eat the bubbles on the surface because they stopped after I fed them. (Highest nitrate reading I've ever seen)

I tested my cousins nitrates and it was blood red. I wasnt surprised because he had 10 goldfish that were 4"-6" each and were in a 30 gallon tank. I made him get rid of the goldfish as soon as I could. Now he has a much better stocking list.

55 gallon elephant nose tank.
30 gallon vampire shrimp, green lace shrimp and snails.
Ohhhhh so sorry to hear about the little EN. Maybe it wasn't the ONE for you. Maybe someone will need to trade one in because it is getting too big.

When you find the right one, you could do twin tanks with the two EN side by side but not together on a nice credenza, or a twin tank room divider...

As for the Amanos they really like to steal all the food and run off with it.

Your new shrimp are very nice. I hope to get some nice ones like that pretty soon.

The Rainbow Monti frag is coloring back up with the new better light on the 12G SW Rimless Garden, but I think I killed my trumpet and my Acan looks pretty bad off, I think because of too much light. The diatoms went away and I did a little light clean on the glass. Today I am thinking of cleaning my big FX-5 filter, either that or give it a flush with the tank water to do a big 50% pwc. I am thinking it would be better to do a cleaning.

So I am learning a little more about auto water changing set-ups. Still trying to understand what I will need to know to set up the 72G for sure and maybe a second tank. (especially if I am gonna get a BIG tank for the maybe Discus project)

Planning my 4 stop afternoon tomorrow for trading fish, plants and supplies for different plants, fish and supplies.

Getting some fresh MacroAlgae to feed my Urchin, need to get some organic raw sea vegetable sheets for him to try too.

Theresa - maybe the Goldfish would like those as they also come in flakes!

Also tentatively purchasing some CPD's from someone and some little Cories if they are still available. Seller's pretty far away but willing to meet so very excited Our local stores seem to be out or want crazy prices for them. Was about to an online purchase for nano fish and a school of Cories but if I can get these for now I will be happy.

Next few days I will be continuing the spring cleaning and organizing, the fish mess is crazy otta control. I have bunches of stuff I don't really need, and then things I need I can't find. Getting rid of 2 tanks (really I am...)

Thanks Autumn, that's just me all over should have got him when my hubby said, but I like to have everything ready and I wasn't.
Tank's side by side would be really cool never thought of that! cheers.
Yeah amanos are a tad bit greedy lol going to move things about in Gonzos tank tomorrow and hopefully find the rest of the rcs to move them.
Well concerned as my guy hasn't ate for 2 days not sure what's wrong so I'm going to do an early big clean tomorrow and get a good look at him. I hope he's okay.

Autumn your thinking of discus! Lovely such beautiful fish, my hubby has always wanted to keep discus maybe one day.

55 gallon elephant nose tank.
30 gallon vampire shrimp, green lace shrimp and snails.

lol. I was out of room so I put it on my work desk in my room. It's great but I get a "little" distracted when I do work on it.

Where do I start?
Let's see...I moved the filter output from the right side of the tank to the center of the tank. That's it.
Yeah, slow night. 😴

that would be nice. The sound of softly running water is naturally calming. I have gotten so used to my 5 fish tanks in my room that I can't go to sleep without them.
