I looked at my tank and contemplated doing the water change that I got water for 5 days ago.
The whole family has been laid out with a nasty cold for over a week and I just ain't got the extra oomph right now to tackle it.....maybe tomorrow....

70% water change. First time doing such a big change on the 75 gallon, not nearly as hard as i thought...But wow, my oscar was not a big fan. He much prefers the 25%

Awe poor fishie. Yeah my endler goes and hides after a 50%. He is like, "woman I hate you!" Then a day later he is staring at himself in the glass.

Fed em pieces of freeze dried brine shrimp they pass them around like soccer ball. They being a gourami, buenos ares tetras, head and tail light tetras and a blue ram. Changed one of the filter pads, added some bacteria. Stared at the fish for a while. Pretty much a slow day.

My dwarf crayfish died. I'm also considered purchasing an assassin snail since I seem to have a snail problem in my 55g

Sorry to hear that. They are sensitive little guys, couldn't ever get them past 6 months. IMO messed up genetics are to blame.

Started training my african butterfly fish to come when I wiggle my finger underwater. By the end of an 8 min session (his first session) he was biting my fingers if I barely touched the water, next step is to get him to come over every time.
