Today I taught my coworker how to use the siphon and clean Potato Chip's tank. I'll be leaving this library in a week, and happily I have two coworkers happy to take over his care.

Things I did with my tanks today:
-Put my extra female, Lucky, in my 2 gallon.
-Set up a new 2.5 gallon, decorated it, and put Virtue in there.
-Put Virtue's cup (fully closed) in Honor's tank to keep it warm while I set up her new tank. Lots of flaring and flirting ensued.
-Did 100% water changes on the 2 gallon and first 2.5 gallon.
-Prepared egg and thawed frozen food for the next 3 days of conditioning the pair.
-Split my microworm culture in two.

Things I need to do:
-75% water change on the 3 gallon
-Monthly de-algaefication of the 3 gallon
-Fix the divided 10 gallon's filter
-Trim plants in the 3 gallon and 20 gallon
-Get some Prime and Seachem Potassium at the LFS
-Get at least one more microworm culture going before I spawn the pair next week
-Get an actual brine shrimp hatchery going (been spawning them in a jar, and I'm only getting about 30-50% hatch rates)

- Bought new silk plants, prepping them for the tanks, and currently soaking them in hot salt water to help the dye set. :< will take a few days at best.

Today I:
-Gave frozen bloodworms to each of my tanks
-Gave my 3 betta tanks and community 29g water changes
-Accidentally stepped on the glass top of my divided 10g after it slipped down from where I propped it.
-Bought a new glass top
-Bought a new heater for the divided tank
-Scoured my apartment for the Prime which was in the fridge
-Pulled out some dead wisteria that got caught behind a heater in one of the betta tanks
-Scooped out a bunch of duckweed from the divided 10g, gave some to my community tank and put the rest on a towel to dry. I'll give it to my houseplants once it does.
-Covered Acrylic's tank after he seemed stressed from flaring at his reflection in the tank wall. Hopefully I can figure out a solution tomorrow.
-Bought some aquarium sealant after I nicked my new 10g on the toilet after it was rinsed... almost forgot about that.

Well it wasn't today (last night) but I set up a new tank for my two new boys Agent and Captain.

I also looked for a good heater for my 2 1.5 gallon tanks and I looked into filters and I'm thinking about getting a small sponge one I saw )but would like a second opinion if anyone would like to give it )

Started thinking about a female tank. (but that's waaaayyy in the future.)

Tonight I...
- did 100% WCs on Mace and Grievous' tanks
- rearranged their decor (Mace got Grievous' silk plant, hammock (his is starting to rust, I think), and "lawn" that was briefly in his tank, and Grievous got Mace's tall pink plant and glow-in-the-dark low-sitting plant.)
- moved Mace back onto our dresser
- moved Grievous onto the nightstand (hopefully he'll calm down and not flare as much)
- swapped heaters in the tanks (Grievous' kept his 1.75 almost at 80, while Mace's kept his 3g around 74)

Tomorrow I'll...
- test the water in my 5 gallon
- do a PWC on the 5 gallon

Today I..:
- WC for the baby and did 2nd dose of meds. Ich is clearing up nicely
- Added the new silk plants I bought to Lux's tank after removing all the others (except the ferns, spent too long setting them up to pull them all apart :I )
- Added most the silk plants removed from Lux's tank to Aris' tank and removed the makeshift ones and most the ferns.
- Changed the filter insert in Aris' tank, hoping the sponges that are in the baffle are seeded enough to keep my cycle. Once I run out of refills for it, I'll just stick a sponge in there since those inserts are uncleanable :I Keep trying to fall apart..

Still need to do/probably putting off till tomorrow:
- Play cord switcharoo again and see if I can free up another power bar so I don't have to buy one x.x
- Clean the 15g. (>.> I need to stop procrastinating on this... *grumbles about methane bubbles and cap leaks*)

Tomorrow:
- Water changes for all tanks.
- Fix Aris' filter baffle... again. Make more permanent.
- Might as well move around the stuff in his tank, need to help cut that flow >.<
- Vacuum Lux's tank. Remove Water stains.
- Baffle 15g's filter, take out driftwood to scrub again and might as well file it down. Clean clean clean x.x
