Just a small update;

The Beast is cycled! Woo!

I don't really give a crap if the other tanks cycle, as I keep up with their water changes no problem. Even if they are 5gs and 10gs, water changes for them are easy.

The 29g though, getting a 30% water change every 3 days, is tiring. For the last month and a half I've been hauling 9gallons to my living room table and bathroom and back to keep that tank healthy.

And today my efforts finally paid off!

Now I can seriously start considering adding sand and later some panda cories! If I can find any....

Yay! Big water changes are a pain. I use a big blue 3G bucket from Walmart and it makes it easier because I have to lug water from my bedroom down the hallway and into the bathroom, and vice versa.

Because there are a lot of parasites and bad icky things that don't necessarilly get washed out 100% every time. Ever since Seiya and Kalec both got ick when they shared the 10g, I've just been paranoid about certain things. So I'm just taking an extra step of precaution; any bad water with potential diseases in it I dont know about yet goes in the bad bucket, only clean, treated water goes in the good bucket.

It also especially helps to not transfer diseases between tanks a bit, so that not a single drop from a dirty tank touches another tank during changes.

Unfortunately, lol, I am not buying each tank it's own water change kit. So I figured two buckets was a good system to control diseases going down the drain and not into the other tanks. =)

Sorry to barge in, but on your craft mesh Betta hammock thingies What type of plant do you have in them? I love how they look, and I think my Bettas would love having them in their tanks!

Ah that's what I thought. I will probably do that if I ever encounter disease, but I have been disease free for years now (except for ich on some store bought fish, but those were quarantined and treated) and I am kind of paranoid about quarantining and stuff. A good rinse in hot water gets most of it, but I suppose that that's a good idea!
