Day 437

This is Day 5 of ick treatment, with high temp. and salt, ick med too. The fish are clear and show no signs of ick, I will still hold this high temp. for 4-5 more days to be sure. Then 50% water change.
Going to start too thin out my tanks, selling two double 55gal. setups, 75gal. in Dec., then another double 55gal. setup after the New Year. This will help me concentrate on having only large(+90gal.) tanks.
I'm also trying to covert Clown Knife from goldfish as main food to thawed frozen shrimp...we are at a stand still. If I can accomplish this he will be moved to the Arowana tank, and pair up with larger Clown Knife. This would free up one of my 90gal... All else good.

Day 432

Bad case of ick! Three tanks infected...bad. Bleached all hoses, nets, anything that can cross contaminate. The fish that are infected the worse are Flowerhorns, Parrots. Going to try and stop it at these three tanks. Temperature to 88*, salt added and ick medication given...going to hold this for 10 days then 50% water changes. One Kenyi died already.

Kim and Todd and son, had a Dwarf Gourami that was too aggressive, so we met at the hospital parking lot for the drop. Nice blue Dwarf Gourami, great shape. He's in a 75gal. now adjusting great. Thanks for the fish, and thanks to Ann at Petsmart for giving out my number.

Video of a 450gal...Nice!

Not mine, but a video I enjoy watching, clear and full of monsters! Enjoy

Day 426

Cleaned 155gal. bowfront with razor blade, and glass tops. Hard water build up, clear now. Sorted through boxes of items. Bleached all gravel and decorations, and rocks. Cleaned and bleached filters. Thinking about repainting stand, black.
Finished all water changes on my tanks #1-#10, and #20. Vacuumed gravel and cleaned filters. Shuffled some fish around, I will update list today.
I will try to return Rob's 90 to him this weekend.

Day 422

Got a call from a nice couple in Linden,Mi. They got my number from Ann At Petsmart, had a few fish to donate. Turns out they wanted to get rid of a fish tank, little did I know it would be this nice of a tank. I can't thank them enough, really makes my hobby better. This is a 155gal. bowfront tank, with black silicone, a stand, lights, a hood and all the accessories. The fish that were donated were two large Silver Dollars, three Kenyi, Jack Dempsey, Parrot, two large African cichlids, two Firemouth, and a large catfish. Sorry to inform that one Firemouth didn't make the trip,R.I.P., don't know why. All other fish adjusted well to the move. Thanks to my Dad for the help moving the tank. Thank you to Ann at Petsmart. And thank you to the couple from Linden! I will put it to good use!
