I did a 20% water change in my 60 after water test revealed a .25 ammonia. Also cleaned out filter pads ( shook them out in discard water to preserve the bio). Now it's crystal clear and my community is thriving.
Also put root tabs under about 15 plants. I won't dose liquid feet this week.

Made a double purpose trip to the 45 min. away lfs for SW and purified water.

Still convincing myself to sell the 35G SW tank and upgrade the 5G SW to 12G or combine it to the 35G and be done with SW for awhile. Very close to deciding probably in a couple weeks will make the final decision. Heading out of town for a week here in a couple days so getting all the pwc and filter clean outs done tomorrow.

Let me help you with SW? Why do you want to exit the hobby?

Thank you for your kindness. Due to limited time, and logistical issues, future traveling with no one to baby sit the tank. Getting a FW tank(s) sitter for weeks at a time is a big stretch, have been working out easy to maintain tank combos to deal with the long times away and SW is too much trouble for the helpers. We are in tank downsizing mode right now. Bittersweet.

Sounds like you need a fish room all your tanks on a constant drip/overflow system to cut out water changes. For freshwater.

Thats one of the hardest decisions one has to make . One I just couldn't go through , I was at that end of the road once not a easy choice.
now if I had to choose the fresh water would be gone before my salt but if I had to choose again the cats are not far behind lol , but yes understanding how it's hard to find someone to babysit sw , been there done that ,
