Just got back home after a month long vacation. My fish look good. My tank is a mess! So either today or tomorrow I will have to do a major cleaning and pwc.

Yeah. My husband was in charge of feeding and liquid fertilizers and topping off. No pwc's. Lol!

I've since been looking in my tank. My 2 original hi fin variatus babies have grown so much! The two left from the second batch are the size of the ones from my first batch before I left, I've seen 4 other tiny babies, my Mickey mouse platy looks like she is going to burst, I think there are at least 2 baby ghost shrimp- they are pretty small, and 3 of my MTS have grown from 1/4 inch to about an inch and a half-ish!

I guess tomorrow will be my cleaning day. I only had time to stare at my tank for a few minutes today when i fed the fish. A month is a long time to be gone from home! So many other things to do!! ... Plus ... I know it's going to be a big deal to clean. I think I'm going to have to pull out all the plants too. Ugh. Wish me luck! LOL!!

Finally moved everyone from the 40 to the 90. They seem happy to have a nice big home

I HAVE FINISHED!

I spent nearly 2 hours and did a 17gallon pwc (55 gal tank). I took out all the decorations and most of the plants. Well, all but 3 that didn't need pruning or removal of melting leaves. Wiped all the glass, swished my filter pads, put everything back in and now I'm done. I was actually impressed with the cleaning abilities of my 3 zebra nerites and my MTS (don't know how many there are anymore). There really was no algae anywhere. A couple of spots on the glass was all. I dosed my tank with Prime and some API Leaf Zone. I'll be getting root tabs very soon as my swords had quite a few melting leaves. Ive also been thinking about buying a new lightbulb since I'm not sure the age of my current bulb. Oh, i fed the fishies some flake food today too. I love my tank. I'm really proud of it. So that's what I did with my tank today!!
