I'm trying to get myself to begin a daily water change schedule. 1 gallon out of each of my 3 ten gallons, .5 gallons out of my 5 gallon, 10 gallons out of the 40 gallon, and the 55 gallons each will have 10 gallons taken out. This will all be a daily thing with a 50% change on the weekends. I've fallen pretty far behind on tank cleaning because of school, so I'm hoping to make a schedule and stick to it. I would do more on some of the tanks but I really don't have time. Oh and I almost forgot, I will be doing a 75% water change monthly

Had to add a few rocks in the discus tank to hold down the driftwood since it still floats up a little. Add had to add one to hold down a star repens

5g water change in the 29g three days early because my Trochus were looking odd again; took samples to work so I could get another post-spike analysis done yesterday afternoon. Chemistry mostly looking good in both tanks – pH low again:

29g
Mg 410
Ca 470
Alk 7.7
pH 7.8
Nitrate/Nitrite 0/0 (HUZZAH!!!)
Ammonia 0.25
Phosphate 0.25
Salinity 1.026

75g
Mg 1500
Ca 500
Alk 6.7
pH 7.4
Nitrate/Nitrite 0/0 (HUZZAH!!!)
Ammonia 0.25
Phosphate 0.25
Salinity 1.026

Dosed both tanks with Eight Four.

Bought a Sand Sifting Star & added him to the 75g. Watched him bury himself under the black sand – he's gonna look cool when he scoots around the surface.

No Blue Tuxedo Urchin yet; maybe in a week or two...

Finally got the 35G SW tank emptied and cleaned out. Finally. Have a big bag of LS- 22lbs, A big heavy LR 13 lbs, and a arm load of other things to take to the mini auction at the CAS mtg. I have the tank and stand to rehome as well.

So anyhoo I hope to get a few more things collected as well. I am interested in clearing out a bunch of stuff and rather not wait for the big auction, though will still be bringing extra stuff each mtg. Might just CL a bunch of stuff too. I need to refocus the collection of supplies, lol. Better to have stuff get used than waste in the closet.
