Today was wc day.I took one plant out from each little boys tank just to give them some extra free swimming room & they all seem very happy about it.Not that their tanks were crowded or anything before,but the plants have more room to spread out now & so do Peanut,Button & Piglet. So they now have 2 silk plants,2 hideouts & a homemade leaf hammock each to play amongst.

It was water change day, so I put Junior in his cup (the one he came with) and started the cleaning process. I decided that I needed to switch things up a little bit so I removed one of the fake plants and put another in its place. Junior seemed rather interested in this new plant and is still exploring to see if I did anything else.

Today was cleaning day (actually wed was, but I am moving so things are a little hectic and I had to postpone). I cleaned three five gallons, a 20 gallon, a 2.5 gallon and a one gallon. PHEW!

Today I took down my entire 15 gallon because the whole tank came down with ich and some other disease, so i ended up loosing 8 out of my 11 fish. I got new black sand, boiled all my plants, bleached down the whole tank, filter, and heater, and then finally set the whole tank back up along with the 3 surviving fish. The tank has to re-cycle now but its okay.

Massive plant removal. The anacharis had taken over. As had the wisteria.

I can see the fish again!

I did:
- Mild trim trimming of my telanthera so I could add some color to the five.
- Water test on the five gallon to check for any ammonia spikes from adding soil to the tank before re-introducing Julian. I think he misses his plants.
- All fishes happily fed.
- Fiddling with heaters because everyone was a bit cold this morning. MN spring is being temperamental.

I planted some dwarf hair grass into Zuko's tank around his ornament, and I started getting my dwarf four leaf clover ready for Sokka's tank which I'll probably end up doing tomorrow or Tuesday with a water change.

Set up a new 10 gallon tank for my spare males.

Tore down the tank the spare males were previously in and netted them all out.

Put the tank back together and did a head-count on the remaining residents.

Did water changes on my twelve other tanks.

Now I'm just about to harvest some of my grindals and feed my juveniles.
