Not much besides feedings, but have found out that we have @ least 6 new guppy fry in our guppy tank

Glued in my DIY Acrylic dividers for the 10g and flipped my almond leaves. That's about it for today. Much more going on tomorrow.

I'll do some more research about whether or not the tank is too small. The brochure for ADF from Petsmart says the minimum can be a gallon, plus a few sites I found, one which seemed pretty professional and knowledgeable.

Lesson 1: do your own research.

Pet stores are companies, they like money. And if it means your fish dies and you get another that's money. They don't care and that's often why the brochures and labels are pretty lenient on tank sizes and never mention cycling.

That first sentence in your first paragraph is the most true thing in the world. They like $$$. Never take advice from a petstore or liveaquaria or the like. These people are in the business of selling fish.

Today I got the stand I built to hold my 30g and 10g tanks bolted to the wall. Changed water on my two P. Gudgeon fry tanks and fed them. Now I'm prepping to move everything from the 29 high tech to a 30. So excited!

Emptied out and cleaned my 25Tall. I researched further and cichlids are too large and need a 55min size tank.
I also got my new coralife 48" dual bulb in the mail. Installed on the 60 and put the 2 24" ones back in the other tanks.
I'm researching using my 25 as a Nano Reef tank with a 10g sump/Fuge.
Thoughts? It's my first attempt at saltwater.

Well so much time has gone by since I have posted. Treating Angel that was and still is ill. He ate a little finally.

Saw berried and small baby Tangerine Tiger shrimp. Sttill not as many babies as I had expected. Have to do a clean out of my big filter, it is a bit daunting and with other family circumstances, I have put it off.

Still on the fence, but probably going to sell the 35G SW tank. My time available for the maintenance is diminishing. Also planning on traveling some in the not too far future so not too sure about who could take care of them because it is out of the scope of family willingness & ability to help.

Finally decided to move the breeding tank of Blue Velvets and Tangerine Tigers to the 6.6G Edge tank, with the Chili Rasboras, may wait to find an additional 12G Edge instead.

Finding a new home for my silver Stripe Female Angel.

My little baby Angel which came with a bag of plants I got at the auction will go to live at my DD tank now that it is getting big enough to be "safe". Though if it is not accepted it will come back to my tank or find a new home. It is pretty interesting it seems to be a Red Cap Clown Angelfish. Meaning reddish pink peach dorsal fin and splotch spots and blotch spot looking stripes. Very unique.

Trying to reduce the number of tanks a little more.

I fed each tank 8 times in small amounts and dosed elements required for growth of plants and corals across my 4 (sometimes 5) in home aquaria..

Other than that there's moving things the inverts have messed up
