I did a water change on my puffer tank, not the 50% I like to do but I only had enough salt mix to do about 40%. I need to put an order in at petco.com again for some, my LFS is an expensive place to buy salt mix.

Buy 50lbs of them from drfoster&smith (sp?). only cost $40. buy 2 packs of them for free shipping. Should last you several months and save you more money.

Thanks, I've never ordered from them before. That would last me forever!

Did a 20% pwc on my 10g birthing/fry tank. My 1 mickey mouse moon appears that she may have aborted her pregnancy :-(

Yea, I done everything I could to try and save/keep fry but to no avail. Before I could see what appeared to be little fish eyes towards her rear but now I don't see anything

I did a 6 gal water change on the 55. Moved my swords so they'd get more light and the Anubias to where they'd get a little less light. Put in some root tabs and dosed some leaf zone. The whole time I had my arm in the water my long fin leopard danios and my neon black hi fin variatus nibbled on me. It tickled!

I also had to remove bits of a broken thermometer from my 5 gal soon to be pico reef.

I tested my water. After a solid 6 weeks my tank is finally processing some ammonia. (Some colonize by Doctors Foster and Smith helped it along a bit)

I just dropped some finely chopped raw shrimp into all of my tanks. The marbled crays latched on, the angels and guppies swarmed it, and my puffers demolished it as usual. I can't make seafood for dinner without sharing a little bit, lol.
