Looking nice. I like the CRS. Overall good color for the price I think. Was shipping extra?

JimB still looking good!

Well spent an hour replanting and planting a bunch of plants in the 72G, found a couple clumps of hair algae in the floating plants towards the back. Need to lay off full blast light in that tank and go back to daylight/sunshine on the Current USA Planted + / plus. I forgot to turn it off a couple times, and have the stock light running on it too, also need to set the timers up on all the tanks. Noticed the substrate needs a good cleaning too. Probably time to clean out the FX-5 again as well.

Yesterday was a busy day with trips to two LFS for different kinds of snails (zebra nerite and trumpet), my order came in from Aquatic Arts (zebra thorn nerite snails, tank-raised otocinclus, misc), and a doctor's appointment (my blood pressure is down, yay!)
Got everyone acclimated and in their respective homes, half the hornwort order is in my tank, the other half in the tank I set up to grow moss in (cold water, little flow, 6500k light). Levels yesterday were 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and the barest tinge for nitrate. Measured today because of all the upheaval in that poor tank yesterday and still 0 ammonia, though now there's a tinge in nitrites. Might call it .25.. maybe? I'll check again later today and see about a 25% based on that.
Tried to get a shot that included as many inhabitants as possible Play where's Waldo if you like, but I didn't put him in there.

Went to Aquatic Experience today. Met a bunch of great knowledgeable people there who helped me with some saltwater questions. Got a red sea calcium test and a filter sock for my 75 gallon. While I was in the area I went to Aquarium Adventure looking for some CPDs, and walked out with 2 amano shrimp and 6 cherry shrimp (3 male 3 female). I was planning on putting the cherry shrimp in the 20L, but decided to put them into the 29.

Have a sick fish in the other QT, It has been the strange behaving one since the beginning. I am hating all these illnesses and death but Oh so glad they are in the QT and not my normal tank. It will likely need to be put down tomorrow.

Spent a little time reviewing fish diseases again.

I have one more Rainbow (Dwarf Blue) that seems to be under the weather in the 46G QT. I have my fingers crossed its got a cold and will be better soon and nothing fatal.

Looks like I will be picking up my brand spanking new 12G Edge Tank this week! Working out a bit of a trade exchange for part of it, and very excited. Will be getting new substrate too but haven't decided exactly what yet, also didn't decide stocking - still thinking that over. Yipee!

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Plumbing's been ready for a couple of weeks; sump'll be ready in a couple of days; PVC & plastic base'll be ready later today.



Picked up 25 gallons of pre-mixed water, 40lbs of live and 35lbs or so of dry Hawai'ian black sand, and a circulator.



5-gallon water change in 29g NanoCube; everything else is now in the 75g.

Finally added a piece of Malaysian driftwood to my tank (never had a real hardscape). Gravel vacuumed a ton of poop underneath. Trimmed my algae filled water sprite moved my heater and performed a 50% wc. Phew! Here's before and after pics sorry for the cloudiness waiting for it to settle (added wisteria 1 week ago to the left side). Looks very naked.

Propagated the Blyxa today! It's growing good! Can't wait for it to completely fill in. Blyxa is on the front right corner.

Stacy - Tank looks nicer with natural DW and the heater out of the way (my eyes were drawn to it before). You may see a rise in tannins, possibly not in the tank but definitely in a light colored water change bucket.

Out of frustration I emptied my new moss tank due to cloudiness, ailing moss, and impatience. Back to square one:
