Added 10 ghost shrimp and 2 male dwarf honey Gourami. Came home to no a/c!!! Tank was at 84 so I unplugged the heater and turned the light off. Fish and plants should be ok till morning when I can get the a/c fixed.

Checked in on my oscar and albino acf's tank today and noticed the tetra whisper filter wasn't running! Pulled the intake tube up to see if the impeller was running and it wasn't! Put it back on and the filter come to life. Looks like I'm gonna need to replace/update the filter. Probably gonna go with another penguin 350 like I have on my community tank that way when I upgrade to a bigger tank I will already have a sufficient filter. Their only in a 20g right now. I know, I know, but the oscar is still pretty small and I AM going to upgrade. So please no crude comments lol

Maybe float a bag of ice to help cool it off?

I made a water changer today. I had bought the ones they sell but it wouldn't fit on or in my faucet. So I went to my local hardware store and bought all the pieces I needed for 16.98$. I am so proud and happy because this hobby can get expensive. It empties and fills

Hmm. Continued the expansion from under my tank stand to through the wall into my garage to add more equipment. In the process of plumbing in a second protein skimmer externally in the garage (a red sea c skim 1800). Little worried about the outlet connection on it too, looks like it pops off easy. Had to build a support to hold it on the wall as my garage is lower so my skimmer had to sit higher than the sump. Now my wife is getting really crabby cuz I now have a chiller, 20# Co2 setup and a skimmer coming through the sheetrock lol.
