What did you do with your tank today?

Thought it would be cool to see what everyone does with their tanks!

You can post anything from feeding your fish to doing a complete overhaul, a water change to medicating, adding a new fish or new plants....
Basically post anything you want as long as it is related to one of your tanks!

Today I fed everyone, started rinsing sand for my substrate change, added some more baby ferns to my driftwood, and did a small w/c on my fry tank.

10 HM, 3 HMPK, 5 HMPK fry
8 German Blue Ram, 5 Green Dragon BNP, 4 Albino BNP, 4 Calico BNP, 6 Red BNP, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 2 ADF, 7 Peppered Cories, & 6 Tiger Endlers + Fry
12 full time tanks, 4 NPT, 6 QT/Breeders

Fed everyone, Mike had to take out a guppy that had died, Archi was displeased and she's been scavenging all dead guppies, going to pull a WC on Hu's tank.

Took out a dead platy before Maestro ate it. That's about it

I visited a LFS and bought a resin cave for Blossom for his 5.5g tank. It had a plastic plant attached, which I detached. About an hour after I put it in the tank Blossom was resting inside. I'm watching his fins to make sure they don't tear. The opening to the cave is large enough that he doesn't have to squeeze through, and the sides of the cave are not sharp but not perfectly smooth, either. It seems they don't really make ornaments with bettas in mind.

Well this morning I worked on conditioning one of my males up for breeding. He is just not aggressive enough, and so I have been trying to build up his confidence with daily flare sessions at the mirror.

I also got took some nice shots of my fish for my blog, and then my camera ran out of battery.

Then I fed a few of my fry/juvies in the grow-outs breakfast.

I hauled my but out of bed at 11:50 to feed my fish, I am behind on water changes by three days because I am so sick, running a fever and throwing up my gut :(
The fry tank needs a water change but I can't get out of bed. I attempted to do a water change but after 30 seconds o holding the syphon hose I was so dizzy I dumped the water back in the tank and threw up in the bathroom. Oh my life.
I can barely move :o
Although I am almost finished all the Pirates of the Caribbean movies although I have slept through most of each one. Maybe tomorrow I will watch as many Lord Of The Ring movies as possible.
