Sounds like you'll be busy next week! Your tank looks good. I like the cardinal fish!

Took out some dead java fern, noticed a ton of growth in my many many baby java ferns. Doused liquid ferts, fed the crew. Replanted one of my melon swords and my male Bolivian ram wasn't too pleased.

Did a 10 gal pwc on my 55. Tested pH and nitrates. Ph was higher than I wanted (8.2) and nitrates were 40-80. I blame it on the use of tap water for top offs while I was gone for a month and also the fact that my 17 gal pwc last week was tap water too (had just gotten home and decided it was more important to clean the tank ASAP than wait until I went to the store for RODI water). The fish are all fine though and I used RODI water to refill today. Just can't get anymore Rummies until my levels come down. Anyway- my Mickey mouse platy had some babies. I was able to scoop out 7 to give to my sis in law to feed to her turtle. I have to keep my tank from getting over populated. Oh- also dosed liquid fertilizer.

I tested my water. My 30 gallon absolutely refuses to cycle. It's very sad. I added some fish food to try to give the bacteria some nutrients and at least get something going.

I didn't do anything but feed them. I was planning a water change on the 56 yesterday and one on the 30 and the 5 today, but yesterday my filter overflowed and I had to empty and move the 56 to assess damage to the stand and let the stand dry off, so that kind of wiped me out, so I took a break today and the other tanks will get caught up tomorrow.

added some macro algae to my main tank looks awesome and also added feeders and macro into feeder tank (Brine shrimp,Mysiss shrimp,pods)
got my mysiss this month from Drs foster/Smith live aquara wasn't very impressed with shrimp smaller than brine shrimp and not as big as the ones I got from reefs to go last month theirs are much larger almost a inch and 1/2 easy and healthier looking
so I know where I'm getting my feeders next month
