Picked up some wood and starting to build a stand for a new 55 gallon reef build. Not looking for an overnight build but could not pass up the dollar per gallon sale at the local big box store. Picked a 55 gallon and a 20 gallon long to make a sump from. Should be a fun project.

That one is nothing, this was our other one, Big Sexy Claw/RIP (name because they wave it around to attract the females)

That was the one I was scared of!!!

Naw, we plastic wrapped and duct taped the back so no openings...Big Sexy Claw would crawl right up that tube and sit under the plastic wrap on the brace in the back staring at me... Wish I would have got a good pic of that it was so funny.

Want to make a hamster Habitrail thing for them on top (in my spare time, lol) with a sandy hermit crab like beach for them!

Yesterday, I pulled up a ruffle sword that wasn't completely happy in my DT and replaced it with a different species of sword. I got my pristellas some frozen bloodworms and they loved them.

Today, I ran water tests on my QT. Ammonia and nitrite are 0. Corys look and act healthy. A friend wanted more decor in my QT and since it doesn't hurt anything I put a fake log with fake leaves on it in there. The corys will like it.

Water changes and only flake for the boys today.

Autumnsky 07-23-2013 03:05 PM

Doing PWC on the 72G to start getting the meds out. Did 60%
Try for another 60%-75% or so on Thursday, I work all day tomorrow.

Then probably going to be trying something else in the next day or two, didn't seem to cure them yet. :(

Lost maybe one Blue tetra, and not the one with the spot on his lip, and I can't tell about the Oto with the spot on his back, they blend in and there are a lot of plants and DW. Saw the others scurrying around cleaning though. The rest of the fish seem fine and are accounted for, they must be the tough ones.

Didnt do much.. changed out 50% of my filter pads they were yuck... prepared 2 ice trays of repashy ... removed a snail shell from the adult crawfish tank as Hefty decided he wanted snail back in his diet and ate one finally.. Mr. picky usually only eats ramshorns

Did a head count all 3 momma still holding and seems like all fish are happy and healthy .. my tank needs cleaning as i have soaked food in epsom salt 4 times as a precaution and poop is everywhere ..

Coryluv 07-24-2013 02:39 PM

Water tests on my QT, amm 0 trite 0 and trate 5.

My otos passed the two week mark in my DT and got a celebratory piece of zucchini. That's a good sign for their longevity. I also noticed that the two that had rounded caudal fins are growing the points back. Not as spectacular yet as the one with the intact tail, but still very good.

My plants got a round of plant tabs today.

Daphnia day today!

54seaweed 07-24-2013 08:16 PM

rearranged both my 37 g bow front and 40b tanks , getting ready for a big coral order coming in the am over 40 corals , going to be a busy day for sure

ddodad 07-24-2013 08:53 PM

Found another dead oto cat today, seems like all the new ones I bought 2 weeks ago have gone fins up. The original 5 are still healthy and going strong. Tested water everything was fine (0,0,5-10) did a 50% pwc just to be extra cautious. Since then I can only locate 3 out of 4 bamboo shrimp. I'm pretty confident the last one is hiding, but he also might of got out during the pwc
