The day before yesterday I redesigned my tank (new substrate, new filter, rearranged everything). Today I’m just doing final touches and admiring my aquatic pets :)

I am doing water changes, hoping for some insight on my low pH thread, and continuing my search for a good deal on a 100-125 gallon tank :)

Nothing today. It's just observing the fish and cleaning house. Tomorrow is maintenance day but here's pics

maybe a new toothbrush and a pair of scissors with a cup or bowl of water to pull the string algae and trim the still good moss back into the bowl to retie it to your hardscape?

I’m dividing my 20 gallon so I can house both of my bettas in there and move my cory fry to the 10 gallon

Redoing the aquascape in the 150 tall and the 44 pent. Taking out of service a 46 gallon bow front and a 29 gallon.

So in the basement there will be a 46, 37, 30 and a 29 gallon. I just am no longer able to keep up with the maintenance.

I tend to under stock the aquariums, so to movie the inhabitants to a new home is no problem....But the plants are proving a challenge.

I redecorated my 20 long:

And I finally got to decorate my two new 10 gals:

(The dirt is still a tad stirred up in the second one, it’ll settle out)

On a more sour note though, I will be watching one tank particularly close because one of my female bettas that had been getting better has taken a turn for the worse :(

Life has been chewing up copious amounts of my time. Job, household and then there are my classes three times a week.

So far so good :)
I’ve switched my Pearls with my 6 Three Spots and added my adult male Three Spot to my 60 while the 2 male Pearls and female are now in the 33. Here’s hoping it stays this peaceful.
