    On Sunday I did about 30% water changes in my 75 gallon and three 55 gallons. Unfortunately I didn’t remember the Stress Coat until the last 55 gallon with Cory fry. Glad I at least remembered it for them since they’re babies. How do I forget to add dechlorinator? I mean it’s only ONE thing I have to add – and still I forget? :;smack I’ve forgotten it before and not had a problem but the planted 55 with mollies is definitely looking cloudy. I guess I should go test the water and do ANOTHER water change. :;fru

    Oh and when I started turning things off to do the water changes I also realized that the HOT Magnum on the 75 has been turned off for a week since I did the last water change. Anybody want to come over and open that sucker for me? ;:barf

    It's city water. I (believe it or not) have done this with the Magnum before. It's bad... really bad...

    im not envying you on the mag cleaning lol...again keep a close eye on mini cycles

    have you checked with your city to see if they use chlorimines? if so, you will need stress coat+ as stress coat wont touch them :( good luck with everything and i hope no mini cycles at all!!!!!!!
