I just know that automatic feeders have been known to dump their whole amount at one time

That was my experience with one.

Did 60-70% water change for my puffer and crayfish tank.

Received 10lbs of earthworm and vegetable sticks from Kensfish.com. Its literally going to last me a few years..

Waiting for next month to buy LED lights for my future mixed reef.

Whoops! And a new 55 gallon tank to start cycling soon!

Digger 12-04-2012 09:18 PM

Tank is almost cycled! Woohoo!

Mixing a large batch of water, getting ready for the big end of cycle water change.

Tested ammonia levels as I wait for my fishless cycle to complete. Also did some hardcore cleaning on some river rocks we're going to be adding for a hardscape, they're currently soaking now :)

Done 50% clean on my elephant nose tank, 50% clean on my bettas tank, thinking off adding kuhlis hope he plays nice with them :)

Cleaned rocks, vacuumed sand, 25% pwc, rearranged some stuff but still keeping same layout. Must have either hurt/stressed out my baby clown pleco during the rock moving. I found it dead a little while ago. Haven't lost one lately so it is very sad.

Everything else is doing great. Plants going crazy, eel becoming huge, knife "Sylphs" putting on their show, pictus cat spazzing around.

I took off the lt blue paint and still need to remove some from the tubes. Want to paint it black in back.

Next acquisition: new lights. The knife fish like it dim on one side, and I am wringing the last bit of use from the light that was on the 29 I took down about a month ago.

Worth the effort. I did the same in my 125 and my 72 and I don't regret the decision. IMO sand looks better and it's easier to clean

Yea it is a pain. Shouldn't be bad with a 10 though. My timing to do my 125 couldn't have been worse. About a week after I changed it one of the corner seams had a complete blow out. So I get a call at work from the wife telling me my tank is flooding the house. So had to completely empty it again to take the tank apart and reseal it.

This happened last night. My new Bolivian ram is learning to eat flakes. Added it last Saturday and the resident black skirt tetras have taken it under their wing, they are inseparable. The ram will rise almost to the surface and catch all the falling flakes. The surface is a bit wild with the Rasboras and black skirts. But I bet it's only a matter of time before it will be joining the fray at the surface. As for my other Bolivian ram, no interest in flakes what so ever.

I am so sorry for your loss, that is horrible and I would have never thought that could happen. Thank you for sharing so we don't use them.
