Three 50% water changes, treatment of community tank for ich, plants in four tanks, one filter, two sponges and one canister serviced. Finishing sterlization of my sorority tank (4x normal dose of lifeguard, all fish removed last week), tore down a defunct petco hex (12v supply failed) and helped out 3 customers at my LFS.

Nolan hates it, but as long as he's not the evil bad news bearer. I've had to start wearing shirts that are clearly not employee gear (even changing before I go to the store XD)

And I'm headed to walmart to find a nice boy who's going to be neglected to death to help my 220gph sorority cycle. Very busy.

Nolan can't say "don't do that" with a pained look of pitty on his face. Customers would throw a fit. XD

*Today was NOT an average day...

Baby talked my dragongoby...drooled at the 1 dollar per gallon local ad...but don't really have the cash to buy another 50 gallon right now..Did most of my water changes Friday but will do one on my 10 gallon today...For some reason my guy has a never ending case of finrot...Medications and salt don't seem to help him...So I am just going to make frequent water changes and hope it helps.Hopefully I will be going to buy some new plants sometime today.

Today was bloodworm day so all the minions got their favorite frozen treat. I also paid the breeder for my new DT boy. He'll be here next week!

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

1 50% change,1 25% change, bought a new tank and betta for my sister's birthday present as well as the gravel, washed out the air line tube we use to vacuum the gravel, and threw away my bottle of freeze dried blood worms because my dog decided to eat them.
