You need timers

Instructions are easy with them.. Dump this and this in the tank. Don't touch anything else

Finished pond and just need to add fish and some more plants. Also I haven't gotten any money to help me get a new bulb for my cichlid tank (burned out). Annnnnnd my female ruby crystal peacock is definitely mouthbrooding, today is day three of the process.

Water changes in the shrimp tanks and Spec, did some work on plants. Biggest excitement is that I finally ordered my first Finnex light! It's for the Evolve 4, I'm just so tired of how dark that tank looks. Light should be here Sunday so I'll have to post before and after pics.

You could use chopsticks or something small to fend him off. That's how I feed my eel.

Came home to find my aquaponics system decided to stop siphoning while I was gone, which in some ways is better than the alternative. I swore I had a dead fish. It's 1am and I can't find a dead one but the water is so cloudy from all the rotting food that even with my mag lighti can't see the bottom. Netted most the food I think and accidentally got some sluggish, but alive fish.

Edit: My confidence in fishy death was because the water reeks of dead fish. I replaced the pump with my back up because apparently that one doesn't have enough flow to get the job done. Indoor tank is doing just fine it appears.
