Day 581

My buddy Eric picked up this sweet Green Terror, raised in a 10gal., tank and fish $15...Great deal!

My Odyssea light is finished and put back together, but I dropped and broke bulb, got one on order. This picture is the guts of my next project. Rob's coralife light, it burns bulbs within an hour of turning on. Surprising there was no ballast in case...still working on it. 

Sad to say my oldest Flowerhorn got his head infection back. Treated with Melafix, he only lived for a couple weeks, the infection came back with a vengeance this time! R.I.P.
29gal. was shut down with Jack Dempsey in it, he was moved to old Flowerhorn's spot.After water change and cleaning. Other 29gal. shut down, it had large Goldfish in it, they were placed into 55gal. I couldn't sell on craigslist.
I'm checking into 19 1/2" Red Tail Cat on craigslist, going to check him out this weekend.
Water changes and filter cleanings...of course! Everyday!

Day 571

Got going on the 60"Odyessa lights I bought weeks ago, one was fine it's on Red Devil colony tank, only a burned our LED light. The other had a burned out ballast, two burned out fans and some cracked wires. I rewired and added an extra ballast to the second light. I used these pictures as a wire color reference. Relieved I took these pictures because I forgot how they were wired! Going to pick up fans from computer supply store this week, the fans are only 1.5"x1.5", very small. This light should be ready to go by this weekend.
Did a 50% water change in Arowana tank, medication is done. Clown Knife looking and acting better.

Day 569

Still treating 3 tanks with Melafix, lost Parrot and Convict in 55gal. Down to Jaguar, Convict, African cichlid, and Jack Dempsey in that tank...two more days of treatment in these tanks then 25% water change.
Got a call from Amy, she gave me two black banded Leporinus one year ago. She had more fish to donate because she's getting out of hobby. The fish I picked up were...Upside down Catfish 1", Bala Shark 7", Algae eater 3", a silver catfish 3", large Tiger Barb, a Tetra, and another tropical fish. These fish were divided between my 75gal. tropical tank and 155gal bowfront tank.
