Major rescape today. Planted the two Amazon swords I purchased last week and added two pieces of driftwood. Added the new angels to the 55 and moved the rainbow shark to the ten gallon. Pictures coming tomorrow since my wifi is out.

I did that job recently. Get a big Rubbermaid, drain half the tank water to it, remove decor, net fish, add to Rubbermaid and go for it. Easy peezy.

Set up a 3g betta tank for my boyfriend. Let's see how this turns out lol. Of course, I'll be doing the maintenance and he'll be doing the feeding and cooing at.

Made a DIY 50% water change plumb thingy to take out half the water in the 45, and going to make an adapter for the other tanks in the house, and planning to split the 10 to rescue a betta from walmart. (A really nice looking crowntail)

Gave the inside of my DIY light hood its first polyurethane coat. 1 or 2 more coats on the inside and 2-3 coats on the outside and it's ready to be wired up.

I performed another pwc. My tank is still cloudy in my 55 gallon after 5 days! Can figure it out, it's not algae. Might be going through a mini cycle, all my levels are normal. Grr!

Have you put stirred the substrate recently? Might just need to let the particles settle

No, I swished my filter and biomax in old tank water. Did a glass cleaning. Don't know if I created a mini cycle, my biomax kicked up dust, or one of my poly resin decoration is leeching (had it for 2 years ).
