Wow, have we all been busy lately!

Fed and put away a bunch of excess items foods, containers and lights, I have been piling around all the tanks. Still need to figure out which adapter plugs goes with which light - 4 options. Found a remote for the 36" Current USA light that I wasn't able to locate recently. That should help it to turn on now!

Still need to find and build /make a "crash cart" for the necessary fish activities & stuff

Tomorrow will need to move my little SW Goby and hermits and snails from the old SW tank and clean it out and remove it from the room, as other things occupied me today. Still making progress, though it seems less quickly as hoped.

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Got up early (11am vs 130pm), hit Tropical Treasures to show fiancée the eel I'd keep in his SW (just a matter of time), went to Seascapes and bought 2 galaxy rasboras and 4 ember tetra. While I was at work, the mystery snail dug up my dwarf lily. I came home to find it buried to the stems by Mr. Trying to help @_@ Rescued it and checked chems 0,0, um... What's a slight tinge? .01? Heh. Got some hungry plants, that's all I know. Found new 20L and another 5g in the living room and got all excited! But no, I don't get to do my scape. Ol boy is gearing up for his SW. I'm getting his current FW 5g, twin to mine. :| What a pooper. He could've said, before I got home and did a little squeaky happy dance at seeing the new tanks.

Shopping day!

Placed an order with Han for cholla, IAL, alder cones, and some floating plants.

Found 10 S-SS grade CRS on eBay for just over $40 including shipping! They should be here at the end of the week. Both excited and nervous

Let me know how the CRS end up.

Oh also lost another Rainbow. It was the big friendly one which was really covered with Ich.

Yay for new place! I'm not a fan either. I usually have an audiobook playing for the company.

Wish I could get good pictures of these fish. They're so curious! The Belkin surge/12 outlet strip came in, so I swapped everything off the inline strip real quick. Transferred the bag of Fluval Plant and Shrimp to a zippered bag and got a good couple of handfuls rinsed and put in. I was prepared for the water to be fairly cloudy, but no, not so much. iPhone cameras... :| I'll borrow a G4 one of these days.

Put in an order at Swiss Tropicals for an HMF corner kit, Lifegard Quiet One Pro 400 pump and Lifegard 100 watt heater. Figure I'll give it a go. Mister picked up a 40 breeder instead of a 55. At this point, I just want to get it set up and cycling.

Acclimating some female CPDs. The two I have colored up and I realized I have two males which won't quite work for breeding. Tested ammonia, still 0 despite technically being overstocked. I hope I really did overkill on the cycling and have a beast bio colony.

Went to an aquarium society auction last night. And despite good intentions of not getting anything, was settling fish into tanks at midnight

Sloooow day today!

Got a good size 4 or 5 inch bumblebee catfish. Solid fish, splashed around in bag all the way home. Hoping it comes out tonight so I can see him better.
