Have a day off of work due to snow. Deep cleaned the 29. Trimmed plants, pulled out more mts and topped off the 10g.

Can't do anything with my tanks for a while and need the wife to help with pwc. Got a nice cut on my hand that required stitches.

Just did a 25% water change on my 75g mixed African cichlid tank. And now my power head crapped out on me. Going now to get a new one.

Did a quick small feed n a hurried pwc on 20g threw plants in the tank and topped off the 55g.. wishing i woulda bought those dang batteries for my air pumps that just came in as we are likely to lose electricity .. under tornado watches :/

That means your plants are using them up. 0 isn't good. You need to look at adding it.

Just picked up a 75g setup. stand, tank, Rena canister and fish. all for FREE!! WHOOP! WHOOP!! :dance::dance:Most of the fish arent compatible so all most all are going to a lfs that agreed to take them. The tank is a mess and in need of some serious cleaning and a few water changes. Which will happen 2mrw. Thinking of putting a pair of large SA cichlids :fish2::fish2: in it.
