29 gal inside looks very clear, and has THIS for parameters:

ph 6.0 ammo .5 nitrate .8 nitrite 1.0



Last water change in 29 was a couple of days ago.

I am having to wait on people to help lift and move this behemoth. It is incredibly heavy glass. Right now it is a little more than half full, and I am wondering if I might be able to save and use some of the water that is in there, since it seems to be cycling.
I'll help you move it.

Into your house?


I put the (((dang auto correct))) goldfish hybrids into it for a test run and they love it so far. Just put some fake plants and some rocks in for them to investigate plus a pot to hide in. Filter is running strong. Noticed a very slight crack in plastic top rim near the center brace which I will reinforce. Have the glass tops on. Looks awful but fish are a lot happier.

Added 4 more green cory cats today for a grand total of 6. I think their actually emerald cory cats but I'm sure there's more than 1 common name. So far they seem to be doing pretty good and hanging out together. Added some moss to the 10g breeding/fry tank.

had to do some cleanup duty on mom's tanks. one of them had a dead chinese algae eater in it he had gotten huge, but on the happy side we found a baby black skirt tetra. judging by his size he's probably been in there at least a month, yet we just noticed him today. he's been hiding himself really well. there's three adults in there (along with two white ones and 3 read ones, i forget their exact names). he's the cutest little thing!

Did a 20g pwc on my 46g bow front cause its been neglected for the past 2 weeks or so. I've had A LOT on my plate recently. I also topped off water on my 10g birthing/fry tank, and also the oscars tank. I had a bolivian ram given to me! I knew he was a cichlid so I floated the bag in the oscars tank. Well after I did alittle research I found out that they only get to 3 maybe 4inches and are a good community tank fish depending on what you have. So I took the bag out of the oscars tank and acclimated him into the community tank. I think that he thinks he is a corey cat lol!
