I like the layout but it is a little cloudy and brown from new driftwood, only been soaking for a week, in the other tank.

My 2 new marble Hatchet fish are looking great, and well colored and happy.

But that is more than I can say for my Blue Rams - found one body the snails were snacking on and as the 32G QT is the same which is holding a ton of extra plants, like a little jungle in there half the tank is full of plants just hanging out waiting for someplace to go and didn't see the other one, had two... :( So maybe alive, maybe dead, but probably dead too.

The Rainbow Blue Platies are all roving around looking active and happy. The blue rams seemed super stressed. They came in the day before I got them. They are guaranteed, so I froze the dead one until I can look for the other one too, they weren't really cheap, but not bad, not going to replace them, going to wait and consider getting the nicer Hybrid kind I liked from the other lfs later. I don't usually lose many fish. It is sad. They were alive last night around midnight. Maybe those active Blue Rainbow Platys freaked them out to the breaking point. edit - yup found the other one, dead :(

My master test kit is at my new house, QT at the old one so I am going to do a big pwc in a minute. And test it later.

I'm sorry:( it's hard to loose a fish, especially rams. They can cost a pretty penny. At least around my area.

Did a big water change on the 55 cichlid tank. When I checked my params the other night, the trates were through the roof. I put my vacuum in, started the siphon, and then tarted carrying buckets of fresh water to the tank. Treated the water, and kept filling while emptying. After about 30 invites of siphoning, I removed the vacuum, and finished filling. Will check params later to see if I need to do another change tomorrow.

It worked, it brought the trates down to between 5 & 10.

You'll be fine. Take your time, rinse the sand really well and remember, we are here if you need us.

Gave my clown pleco a blanched carrot. Pwc on my 10 gallon, noticed my plants in both tanks are growing very nicely. Now time to watch NASCAR.

I missed my tank today. Spent yesterday staring at it. It's so relaxing!

Pulled all the FLoramax substrate out of my new 20G Tall. Rinsed it though a sieve 1 pound at a time to clean it up better, and put half back in. Waiting for the wife to get back with pool filter sand, then will add it in. she picked up some rocks she liked from the storm retention pond down the street, so we will scrub and boil those and see if we can't get a decent arrangement going with those and the plants we have. I will be hope full to get a pic up tonight of what we have going on.

Hello...

Just changed out half the water in this 45 G tall. Just a low tech, low light, planted tank. The 75 or so Fancy Guppies and the two, 4 year old Melanistius Corydoras like the warm water change. They come to the glass to say "Thanks"!
