They said they might...owner does aquarium maintenance, so it may not be a big deal for him to deliver 85g.

I could carry it in my car, but my back won't let me carry it by hand...and getting it into the tank would virtually destroy me...

I'm looking at the Current USA line of LEDs; I'll check out your suggestion and do a detailed comparison; thanks!

Got the Saddleback Clowns and breeding pair of Camel Shrimp into the hands of a skilled person with more time to work with them. Maybe 70lbs of live rock mostly, and some extra rock I didn't need.

He has many Rainbow fish varieties, and will give me several. First I need a few more Madagascars to round out the group. And he has Turquoise which I absolutely want more of, Golden and a couple others with long names. I am going to wait a couple weeks to get my QT Ich problem fixed.

Those remaining fish are holding on and the specks are disappearing now. Still odd to me how 2 of the fish didn't look like any spots were on them.

12G QT - The Black Emperor Tetras are still alive. The 2 female M. Sexlineata are doing well now though I think they don't really like the smallish tank - the Melini Cories in there are all doing fine too. Maybe one more week or so and I will move them out.

Wow how I wish all those Rainbow fish didn't get Ich...

Kept my Clown Goby and my little Peppermint Red Shrimp for now but need to redo the tank and finish taking down the small rocks and any hermits that are left. I had a Pistol shrimp but haven't seen him, so I let him know the shrimp could pop up. I am wondering now if he is still in what's left of my 35G tank and will have to look thoroughly.

The little Goby is still in the 35G will need to move him over to the 5G for now. Till I need to take it down. I didn't have much trouble with the small tank but not enough time to take care of a different type of larger system with a five foot long list of other things to do. For the next couple months I could keep it up and running, but then if I am traveling for any length of time I would need to find them a new home. I really like those guys... conflicted.

Found another dead CPD. Concerned there might be a parasite there too due to cross contamination, I used the same buckets for the 6.6G and that 12G Edge tanks.

These are the times that make it difficult to want to tear down a perfectly good tank and redo it since one might face a bumpy road getting it back to "perfect" again. Speaking of the 15G column TT and BV shrimp tank I was going to change to the shrimp to the newer Edge.

Will wait a little while and get a new substrate for the redo newer Edge 6.6G as I was going to use the Shrimp substrate presently in the 15G column after I take it down.

Since I have zero problems with the 15G column I am leaving it alone for now. Same with the original 6.6G Edge leaving it alone as well - for now. I have enough headaches otherwise.

Going to feed 3 tanks in question with medicated parasite fish food tomorrow.

Awe sending good thoughts for quick clear up for those poor things. You've got local folks for seeing to things if you're off, no?
I got impatient with my cycle. Went from 4ppm, four days to 2ppm, another two for 1ppm and still no nitrites. Went to Tropical Treasures and got a bag of hot mess off Nate to move it along. Also swapped my carbon for Purigen and rearranged the tank in prep for hornwort anchored to cut lengths of cholla across the back which will be happening next Friday. Left the Fluval floss and the ceramic rings in; I'm in a hurry, not crazy.

30% wc on my 75 a day early for a change
Fed that tank frozen mysis
Fed the 29 frozen brine shrimp, bloodworms, and mysis shrimp.
Fed the fw 20L 4 sinking shrimp pellets, 7 pepper corys chew those down in no time!

Tomorrow its an early morning wc on the sw 20L and later in the day I'm going to QT a yellow tang in it.

In just a few hours I changed this: to this:
Don't worry, it was time to remove, trim, and replant. Disturbing the substrate usually clouds up the water. It should be cleared up by tomorrow. I will post an updated pic.

Put handles on the stand doors for the 75. Accidentally drilled the holes for the first one on the hinge side so it was a bit more interesting than I thought it would be..
The lfs didn't have a yellow tang I trusted, the one they did have wasn't doing to hot and looked sick.
I didn't leave empty handed though...
Let the corals begin

Took the 20g long to the lfs to get baffles put in & fitted for the skimmer I'll be buying soon(ish)

While there, picked up a couple more LocLine fittings - got all I need now. Also picked up some carbon and some GFO as well as filter bags.

Another 5g HydroTote plus saltwater; a Ti heater; a little more knowledge...

Put together a PVC frame to go under the sump, since I don't really want it resting directly on the bottom of the cabinet. A little air circulation never hurt nobody.

Did my weekly 5g water change in the Nano 29g. Added a couple Emerald Crabs I got at the lfs this morning.

Busy day...busy day.
