I did a massive water change on my 20 gallon because there was a bunch of poop everywhere. Ended up changing about 150% of the water just to get it all up. I need one of those gravel vacuums that put the water back in the tank to clean the sand up. My siphon doesn't do the best job at vacuuming debris off of sand. Then I did my betta tank for good measure. The best part, none of this was planned maintenance. I just got up to make myself a drink, noticed poop, poured the drink and went and got the stuff for a water change and proceeded to spend almost an hour messing with the tanks. At midnight. But hey, two clean tanks! Puffers get their change tomorrow.

Did my weekly 50-60% water change a little early this time. Still planning on the algae turf scrubber.

Did a 50% wc on my tankand gravel vac. I have negelcted wiping the algae off the walls and ornaments for a while. So I did that. All that commotion kicked up debris in my tank. Refilled the tanks added prime and started the filter. Now I can't wait for my filter and sponge filter to do its job. Now's the time I had a HOT Magnum.

Spent ages cleaning sand before i put it in, bought plants, ammonia, picked test kit up from post office, put everything in place and added ammonia and tested the water to see whats the crack with it at the start.

Now I have a cloudy tank, floating bogwood and no fish.

And I'm knackered.

Added sand to fill my DSB and starting to add water. It's starting to look like a tank!

Just painted the back of my new 29 gallon tank now I'm starting to make the stand and hood

Normal PWC. Dropped a slice a cucumber in for my clown Pleco. Making headway on getting permission to get another tank. When I first stocked my 29, my mom wanted angels. I told her 'no'. Now I'm playing the' if I can get another larger tank, than I will stock it with angels' bit. Wish me luck:)

Went to Petsmart and my lfs and picked up some pest snails for my puffer. While at the lfs I also bought some Java moss. Came home and my house was 80! So I had to do water changes on all my tanks to get the temp down. After, I fed peas to everyone but the puffer, he got some snails! :) Put some of the moss in my betta/frog tank and some in my community tank.

Thanks.

Didn't do much with my established tanks, but I spent the better part of the evening (and early morning hours) painting my new 58 gallon.

That is the progress so far. The whole back is going to be done in shades of green.

Tetra1990 06-29-2012 10:18 PM

Did normal PWC and cleaned some algae off the glass. It's amazing how 'clean' my tank looks after a water change.

rreekers 06-30-2012 12:19 PM

Did 50% pwc on all 4 of my tanks .. now I'm thinking I will feed them peas today

awilson133 06-30-2012 08:38 PM

Water changes and filter cleanings all around! Scrubbed some dark nasty looking algae off my dw. Some minor rearranging. Oh, fetched a red claw crab out of a HOB filter. Thought about adding some fish, decided against it after seeing petsmarts current stock. Ugh. I need an LFS.
