Been awhile! Tank is still going. Did a rescape tonight.
Also found out my leaf fish is dead. And gone. I knew he was having trouble eating, and his stomach was always really caved in. Must have finally starved to death?
I'll get photos up tomorrow, might run to the store and see if I can...
Fish are doing well! Leaf fish doesn't seem to be growing as fast as I had hoped.
I switched the input and outputs to opposite sides of the tank, definitely stirred up some spots that had settled.
Filter seems a little louder than normal, could be residual air.
Been 8 days since the last vaccum! Fish are doing great, I did a double vaccum this evening (5 gallons, twice) and as I was adding water the Christmas Moss popped off!!
Re glued it but still not happy with it. Really want to switch the intake and output sides just to switch the flow for awhile.
Nothing in the bed! Have some in the bumper though lol
Absolutely a life saver back when I owned a boat and pulled trailers for a living
Everything is wired to a switch panel including the backup camera, so I can turn them on whenever instead of only in reverse.

Cleaned the FX4 for the first time. Surprisingly clean.
Going to try and get rid of some plants this week. 1 sword and some of the Val.
Vacuumed once this week, definitely prefer biweekly.
I vacuumed out 10 gallons, and pouring 5 back into it a bunch of droppings resettled so I vacuumed another 5.
15 gallon change total, I have been using the freshwater frozen variety packs, fish love em but I think it's doubling...
It's a small world! If he's into aquariums at all I would definitely recommend the Willamette Valley Aquarium Society. It's a great group but definitely pretty hardcore. The auction has some great deals too.
I will start looking for a dropper! I'm testing about once a week, have to break in...
