Largest of the Black Nasty fry was attacked last night in 135gal., died of his injuries.R.I.P. Only one Black Nasty cichlid left. Acrylic tank#22, set up 4 hours ago, still good. No problems. I may ask Jimmy to let me use filter or take filter media from his tank, for a smooth transition, and easy transfer of fish. Pick up fish 10:30am tomorrow. pH 7.1 after 5 hours, thats good. 7.3 after 8 hours, and holding. Added bioballs from filter of 380gal.

Twenty five percent water changes only in tanks#7 and #8, #11 and #20. This was done 10 days ago. My buddy Jimmy can't get rid of four of his fish, going to try and finish 388gal. for these fish. Arowana, RTC,Clown Knife, and an Oscar. These were originally housed with my two largest Pacu, that I got from Jimmy. Arowana makes me nervous, hard to move. They don't accommodate well to moves, very water sensitive to pH and water hardness and temp. Testing my water now, will test Jimmy's water before move. I will update with pictures when it goes down!

Picked up a coralife T5 light for Rob, to fix and use. All else good.

Shut down tank#6 today, two Oscars and Black Nasty cichlid went into tank#20. Red devil/jaguar went into tank#17 from tank#20, too much aggression towards Black Nasty. Arranged all my extra pvc, going to use some to run drain/return lines to 388gal. Still waiting for center runoff drain to be built for 388gal.

Feeling good today, this is tank#20. Hung the black background and cleaned with water change. Swapped a Coralife light from another tank. Tanks #1,#2,#16,#17, and#18 were also cleaned with water changes. Two Oscars from tank#14 were moved to tank #20. All fish in tank#10 were moved to #14. Tank #10 was shut down. Lost a medium Pacu and Bala Shark in 380gal. power outage a few days ago, looks like a outlet was splashed and tripped the breaker.
