Today I planted some plants I got, and I love them! Redid Co2 mixture to build up some pressure, refilled evap from tanks and scrubbed algae. Pretty much just normal maintenance.

Strongly agree with this. HGTV all the way! Second choice is the plywood for the hinged doors. I don't understand cats.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh so many tanks! I will think about this...

Well fun fish day yesterday. Swapped out a couple Leather frags in part for a Older Mr Aqua 11.7G. It came with a cute strong stand with frosted fish and seaweed designs on the glass doors, with a hobbyist locally. It is of course the rimless but he made a lid for it, nicely done.

Have to run off to work but the quick version is went to the CAS meeting and got to judge the bowl show entries with my friend.

At the end was an mini There were twice as many awesome things because last months meeting was a picnic, no mini auction.

Got a pair of bowl Champion blue green Metalic Guppies for $7!

A huge water lily for a pond for 6 or 7$ with a flower on it to see what color complete with bucket. Now I need to put up my pond again!

And 6 locally raised Melini Cories, from little tiny to pre adult!!! for $20.00 So darn cute!!! I love them already!

A Betta for $2.

10G Whisper internal filter new in box for $5.

~15 Water Lettuce small to large size for $3. Trimmed the up to 18" roots to about 8" so they don't get sucked into my pump motor and added to my water fountain for the moment. Boy do I miss my pond...

Did 75%pwc on the new 6.6G Edge - added the Guppies and the Cories as a QT.

Put Betta in half filled 5G bucket till I finish moving things around. He is blue and yellow kinda - since he was so stressed out he was pretty pale. Can't wait to see what color he really will be. He seemed more colorful today but in an Orange bucket hard to tell the color.

Did 2G pwc on the 12G Edge.

I really wanted a gorgeous purple with a hint of yellow tail Moscow Guppy pair but some cute little kids got them instead. Since the seller is a member I will maybe be able to get some more. I am reverting back to my childhood!

Pics in the next couple days, lots of work for the next 4 days.

So far everyone is looking alright.

Pretty darn excited to continue to get all the tanks upgraded and their inhabitants redistributed, lol!

Currently debating the idea of doing a 20l. May start a thread on it once I get more money

Did a PWC on the 10 and rescaped dexters side with a piece of driftwood I bought from Triton +1 to him.

Considering rescaping the 45 with some rocks, but that will be a chore in itself...
