2G pwc on the broken filter Edge 6.6G

Removed some very clean plants and moss which was put into the SAE QT tank and the little sweeties cleaned every bit of algae off of that bunch.

Then added in a huge clump of algae from a plant vase on the patio. Already see them sniffing around the giant glob .

The big CAS fall auction is in less than a week so I will let them munch away on that before they go to the 72G. Had fun watching them munch Spirulina flakes yesterday like mad so figured they could use a little extra munchies for growing.

Then will have the 12G Mr. Aqua available for a new batch of fish if bidding is successful at the auction!

Going to buy a big bunch of Anubias Pinto this next week and planning on some rescaping soon after.

Also looking for some starter CRS with nice white shells S grade if anyone knows of some please shoot me a PM especially if interested in trading for some Pinto!!!

Need to do some replanting of up rooted plants in the 72G and add in some new substrate ferts.

SW - cleaned the filter pads and added water for evap, on both the 35G and 5G.

Added water from evap on all the rest of the tanksand realized I need more Prime - again! So stopping on the way to work for a new bottle, can't ever have too much
Prime in stock, lol.

The splashing water noises from the lowered water drive me crazy!

Isn't Pinto the one that's crazy expensive?

PMd you about CRS.

Had to laugh at your last comment, two tanks in the room with me that need to be topped off, more because of the noise bothering me than anything else

Yep Pinto is the expensive one. Really cool relatively new plant. Stuff goes for a lot.

Working a deal for 20+ leaves. Yes, they sell by how many leaves, lol.

Local CAS member has a bunch, evidently grows very well for him (he is an excellent keeper). He's probably taking the rest to the auction and it will go for tons of $$ or reasonable. Most people are only wanting to pay reasonable prices for a plant. I got mine staked out ahead of time so I can be sure to be able to get some. Just needed a special treat for my rescape. If I have to downsize my # of tanks, then I want to be thrilled with my tank(s). My kind of retail therapy. I don't give a hoot about high heeled shoes, lol.

Have offers out on local trades for deleting some of my tanks, supplies and equipment.

Took off the filter of the newer "broken filter" 6.6G Edge and found a little bunch (3) of impleller stopping MTS growing up and causing more trouble than normal!

Then since I had to take off the back of the unit I decided to try to figure out how to replace the light bar (one that got all the water in it and burned out mostly).

I have a 21 light replacement from a Fluval warranty replacement part of the original halogen light bar. Previously couldn't figure it out so it has sat in the cupboard for maybe 2 years Instructions were to remove the screws and replace. Well come to find out there are 4 screws 2 on the arms, not just 2 on the hinge so that is why I couldn't pull the bar off of the body last time. Took less than 5 minutes!

Will order the bigger light bar for the other tank this next week. Considering possibly ordering the 42 LED usually used on the taller 12G for the 6.6G they are interchangeable and play with some high light plants. More thinking, lol. Really thinking it would be an algae mess. (could try the 4 on, 4 off x2 lighting though) More thinking needed there.

Though for ~$50 for a light arm and $90 for a whole new Edge 6.6G tank or $120 for a new 12G (that's on sale and with a discount) And $25 for a new filter. I am considering a new white 12G to go with my white stand (just thinking mind you.)

Also now wondering if I could figure out how to retrofit the old broken light bar with new more powerful LEDs if it would be worth it or not.

After a bit of a lull I am feeling the energy come back to my fish keeping life. Ahhhh.....

Wishing I didn't still have tons of priority projects that need finishing before having more fun ones to focus on.

It might be possible to remove to light bar and place one of the appropriately sized Finnex LEDs (StingRAY, FugeRAY) on top.

There was a retrofit I saw recently, with additional plastic around the cover keeping it looking nearly stock but wider to accomodate the wide light, but it requires good plastics building skills and I think I will be pushing my limits learning more about the lighting already.

A local CAS member builds his own LED lights and has a how to guide. I will see him at the auction so maybe I will check if he has a minute to give his opinion. I have a little Beamworks as the substitute light I have been using. It wasn't very strong and all my little mini moss fell to pieces and is floating all over the tank now (mostly on top).

A mess I will get to soon, but later. That tank will be getting new substrate and a new scape after the auction any way.

Maybe ordering the substrate tonight.

Well it wasn't today but yesterday I got 10 more Cory habrosus for my nano community tank a few weeks ago one of my LFS had gotten 6 of them and someone only bought 4 of the 6. I grabbed them figuring I would get more and until they got more for me they could hang out with my Pygmy school. They finally got more in so now I have a school of 12

For whatever reason my imagur/phone isn't playing nicely so I can't get the new pic to upload but here is the pic of the original pair
