i know how you feel. im religous with PWC's but never clean my room lol. today i did my water changes. even though one tank is either mostly empty or has one fry(he might be dead,might be in the java moss),and got new fish food and bloodworms

Its been a busy few days for my tank. On friday I added a new addition to the tank a german gold ram. On saturday did the usual water change, gravel vac, wipe down the walls. Tried to reset the ledlight/bubbler that I have in the bottom of the tank. Figured out that I will need to weigh it down the suction cups were too worn. So I too it out accidentall broke the bubble part of it. I siliconed it to some slate that I had in the tank at one time. Now today I notice my ram was at the surface a little too much for my liking. So when in doubt do a water change. So I took advantage and reseated the led light.

Parasnailing is a great word! I did my weekly water change for the puffers yesterday, I'll probably go ahead and do the other tanks later today.

Put in a new plant, got water tested. Perfect perems!

MissSmish 05-28-2012 06:59 PM

Fed my fish, tested my water, yay for perfect params! Worked out i am basically overrun with platy fry so I'm getting another tank to put the little guys in on thursday, already got the media in my current filter to seed it, going to leave it to run through till Sunday when I do a mass change....

I didn't invent parasnailing, someone else on here did, but it's so perfect I stole it haha!

I've been super busy with work the last few weeks, then ended up in the hospital on Friday with planter fasciatus. My tank have been neglected, a missed water changes and a few missed feedings.. but I'm I'm about to tough it out and clean all 4 tanks w/ partial gravel vacuum ... I'm not looking forward to this but my fish will be happier I know :)

I did a 14 gal pwc, took everything out and stirred the sand, rearranged everything and took out my bubble stone. Rinsed out my filter unit and rinsed the filter pads. All clean! I like the way it looks now. :)

Water change, added gravel, added driftwood, removed fry to a fry tank, rescaped, had my dog tell me that one of my fish had jumped out of the bucket he was in while I had my back turned, refilled my tank, tested params, put the fish & shrimp & loaches back in and that's about it...

Well..I added not one, but two 48" dual bulb t5 lights. At 2 WPG! I just need to find a home for the 2, 30" dual bulb t5's and a canopy to help block the light from these two fixtures.

I did a 50% PWC on my 10 gallon RCS tank to begin the process of eradicating Planaria. Stupid worms.

MissSmish, very nicely done!

What did I do today? For about the 357th time, turned my japanese trapdoor snail right side up. I swear, I've never seen a snail flip over as much as this guy does...... :rolleyes:
