Yessir. I was just gonna buy a 125 but that was $600 more than the 75. Couldnt justify spending that much yet.

Its also kind of exciting because ive never bought a brand new tank larger than 20g. The ones ive all gotten have had scratches or poor seals.

Don't forget to give us a pic or two

Fed and found eggs that the pair of Angels is guarding from the day before are still there on the intake tube Wondering if the lfs in Boulder has a scrap intake or a new interchangeable one. Left the moon lights on for them last night, worked all day so I didn't do much else. Don't see any bad eggs tonight. hmmm. Every time I half consider saving the eggs the next day they get eaten by someone!

Going to do 2-3 pwc tomorrow from the fish in QT to help remove the medicine/copper. It seems things have leveled out and the rest of the fish SEEM alright now. I still need to pick up the Turquoise and Madagascar Rainbows and a couple more yellows from the breeder when I empty the QT. To start the QT process all over again for the new additions to make up for the losses from the Ich.

nice tank early xmas present to yourself I'm sure

fixing the electrical/fire damage that my hob overflow caused because the out let nipple broke off and flooded the outlets , the gfi saved it from burning as it popped the circuit I caught it as it happen just couldn't stop the water fast enough , new hob $100. stand repairs $30. outlet repairs and drywall $75.
the small fire was from the small flash when salt water hit outlet as it flowed down the wall,

Added 3lbs LR, 4 Bumblebees, 2 Blue Legs, 2 Black Foot Trochus...

Set up the 10g sump that came with the 75g as an interim solution so I can keep the water flowing and aerated; moved the heater into the sump.

Fired up the pump; checked for leaks (some minor dripping from drain and return) and decided they're insignificant...the return sits just above the sump so I was able to position the sump to catch all the drips; the drain leak is slow enough that I was able to put a sponge under it with no worries about it getting sloppy wet.

All in all a pretty productive day.

Poked the soil all over and made a mess in the 40b. The hornwort shed all over the 5g so I ripped it out and took two hours vacuuming spots a bit at a time so as not to freak everyone out. I need to get a hose. I'll be iron womaning things if I keep emptying and filling the 40b with a bucket. Did 99% before bed. Cracks me up I need a kitchen chair to even get into the tank. I slept well hahahaha

Did a PWC in my 75 gallon today. Got the last of the Red Eye Tetras moved to the 20 gallon long upstairs*. The 75 is now a planted Rainbow aquarium with a few bristle nose plecos on the bottom.

*Got 6 of them out last week, and couldn't get the last 4 until today. Speedy little [moderator edit]. The 20 gallon is now a tetra tank with 10 Red Eyes and 1 Serpae. Might add some more Serpaes but not sure if I want to keep Tetras. The Red Eyes were the first fish my son picked out so they have to stick around for awhile.
