Not exactly to the tank, but I added some lights underneath in the cabinet. Going to make filter cleaning and maintenance chores a bit easier now that I don't have to use my phone light. Now I just need a better organized box underneath.




I also bought new CFLs for my 20 Gallon. The fixture that I got used had 2 Exo Terra CFLs that were used over a turtle tank. They were probably pretty old and worn out, and they were too yellow for my liking. Replaced them with 2 6500k bulbs and the tank looks a lot cleaner. I'd post a pic, but the aquascaping looks like crap and is a mix of real and fake plants.

Sad day here. In the middle of breaking down the last 5 tanks at my old place, and taking the fish to the LFS. 20L, 55g and 65g hex broke down and stored away already, 10g & 29g remaining.

Adding to this. Broke the 20L side pane somehow unloading it. 10g and turtle tank taken to the soon to be ex wife. African cichlid, and few misc fish traded for credit at the LFS. Now sitting down at a local Mexican joint for some dinner.

Here's a pic of the 65, 55, and 29 stashed away at my parents. Fluval 405 and Aquatop canisters tossed to the side as well.

Sorry to hear that. You're not completely going cold turkey though, are you?

No sir. I have my 75g and my roommate has a 10g. Just don't have the room for all my tanks at the new place. I'll post an updated full tank shot of the 75 tomorrow. Just tossed (floating) my crypts, blyxa, and giant Java moss rug in for the time being. Got plans with a lady friend tonight.

Water change on 75g done today and had a leaky connector... Got quite a bit of water on the carpet before I got it all cleaned up.

Water change in the planted and shrimp tanks.
Drained the CO2...regulator pressure read zero a week ago but I was able to get some gas out of it by opening up the needle valve.

Fertilized my 29 this morning before school when all my tanks were dark and came home from work to dark tanks. Not being home for 14 hours is no fun

Did a major water change on the Betta house. Cleaned the glass and rinsed the rocks with treated water. Snails poop a lot!!! Have two possibilities for new home for him - will find out tomorrow.

Back to the never ending QT. Two of the Black Emperor Tetras are acting weird one from the begnning is dead and the second looks like it is on the way out too. Not sure yet on the 3rd. Had problems with these guys since the beginning. Depressing situation. I was once again just about to integrate a few of the fish into the big tank.

The way I am feeling with them all is to start over. BUT I wouldn't just kill off the others, so I am just playing the waiting game to see if any stay healthy. I have one more I rainbow I am a little concerned about. Time will tell. 5 of the Rainbowfish look good.
