What are you doing fish realated Today?

Post  FishVixen on Tue Jan 08, 2013 11:50 am

Well folks they say write down everything so here is a place you can jot down notes of your tanks activities. Did you do a waterchange? Did you notice strange activity in a fish? Did you go bizirk on aquabid and ordered that new fish now have to set up a tank just for it? Sometimes it help to be able to look back here and remember what you did and helps others by seeing what others do with their tanks.


Today I'm waiting for a 13 watt UV steriler to add to my 55 which has algae problems.

Moving some Plat blue pearls to a spawning tank. The new Discus were eating their eggs as they were being laid!

Recieve the UV unit. 13 watt was on back order so they sent a 24 watt in place of it. Very Happy A 24 watt UV for $39.99 not bad. !st time using Petco online service so was competely shocked. (Not a fan of those big mart stores but they were the cheapest)

Also getting a 40 gal octagon free from a friend (actually I gave them the tank over a year ago) but working out details on getting it here.

I moved 2 plat blue pearls over to a 29 to allow them non-invasive breeding. Each had their tubes out, the Discus were hovering around awaiting a batch of fresh eggs.....Upon the relocation, the tubes disappeared for a couple of hours and now their prepping a breeding cone!.. They'll coat it by no later than tomorrow....
Oh... topped of 60 gallons of water lost due to evaporation... Should have cleaned but it's been busy here for once! Bill

Well.. after "working" (a four letter word if there was one) for 8 days, had today off and had a boat load of chores to accomplish... SO, tomorrow, Every tank is going to receive a major vacuum and 50% w/c's. I figure if I put it in writing, I'll be motivated to "get-er-dun".. Bill

If I post what I do in my daily basis in my fish room. I will have thousand posts. So here is what i did last night. Did water change on 3 20 highs, I did 50 % water change on my 72 bow front , did 50 percent water change on 2 55s. Also did water change on my 5 gallon hatching jar. Moved a lot of fish. Getting new pair like every few days. Getting tons of eggs to the point I can't handle it. Finally figured what I want to do with the red topaz guppies. I have two trio up for grabs, one is going to Kat and the other one is still anyone who wants it. Fish room is crazy :0. Happy fish keeping.

Picked up two more female Bolivians for the 3 males I have... umm...

Did some work on putting a water mark on the flyer.. (Soon to be posted for critiques).. .Sorta a normal day I'd say!
