Yay you're back!! :-D

I did a very super through gravel vacc on my 29g & 60% PWC, bought plant bulbs, bought small plant, planted it... LOL, watched everyone, put up 4 Juvie mollies on craigslist...

Back to back 80% PWC on my fry tank after a huge nitrite spike. Eek, all good now.

Broke down and emptied a 55g ready for moving after selling the fish. Found 7 fry living in the canister filter!

Oh and I did the obligatory sit and watch all the tanks for a few hours hah.

I started off doing a 50% water change but it turned into a tank overhaul. My 5 year old stuck the siphon down into the sand and sucked some out so I had to remove all the pebbles and redo the sand, then add back in the pebbles and plants. It was a 90% water change by the time I was finished. Then I watched king Neptune swim around rather unhappily because his water was cloudy from the sand. At least it's clearing up pretty quickly.

Thanks! My 5yr old named him. He's a betta. We got him because his older sister got a hamster-Captain Pickles!

50% wc installed new filter, added more seeded material, woo hoo!

50% wc and got impatient waiting for my driftwood to sink so I anchored it a weight. Rearranged my plants. Here's the end result.
