    What are you doing tank related

    Post by FishVixen on Wed May 25, 2011 11:36 am

    Use this thread to jot down anything you do to your tanks sort of like a journal. Good way to keep track of what's happening in your tanks and you can look up when you did something.

    I'll start with yesterday moved the 125 africans to the 55, moved the Moorii to the 125 so we can drain the sump soon, red koi have wigglers, jax and jazz wiggler, Water cahge (deep clean) 90 and 120. moved all discus to 120 moved angels to 90.

    today put a AC70 on the 125, pulled hair algae from the 45,

    Uhm - where to start - water changes water changes water changes!!! Been bustin my tail outside moving the loads of "wood chips". Need to deep clean the 1 29 then move the Ports in there, catch as many as possible of the kribs to put in the 35g under the one 55g, move / sort the other guppys and platys in another of the 35's and put the Fulus in there so I can see MuffMan under lights!!!! Hoping the weather levels off some more then the Koi can move outside since the tank they are holding/qt'ing in is needed for a new batch of Betty & Barney kids. Okay there's the highlights!!!

    The last few days have been crazy working outside!!! Tonight got the baby discus tank water changed, topped off some tanks, if it keeps raining here should be able to get caught up. Want to get the rest of the fish I'd like to swap around done and something keeps coming up that it doesn't UGH the aceis looked so awesome under the lights that if I don't sell them they'll move into a tank with one other species that they won't hybridize with.
    Going to move the fancy goldys to the their other "patio pond" so I can heat up the 150g for a summer experiment - think that's everything. Don't know for sure if I'm going to put Turkey's koi in with them though they are small currently so would work for this summer but darn sure not next.
    The holiday weekend is going to help me get caught up a bit on the wood chips deliveries (gotta tell you my shoulder hurts like a dirty rotten &^%$#^&^%$)

    Well everyone got breakfast, the fry will be getting brunch soon. Baby discus are growing like lil' weeds!!! they are looking really nice. Going to try and setup up a couple sale tanks at JoJo's since I've been working outside alot then I'll move lots of the female & male guppys into them along with another tank for the extra kribs and run a sale to try and get rid of a rear end load of them. Been so busy with other stuff haven't had a chance to get the breeding/sale room started.

    Gotta pick up possibly some bunny cages later and go look at a new man for the girl mini rex's along with getting tbone signed up for fair, he's not excited which I think is due to his "Izzy" being a casualty of the dog attack so I offered up a couple of my "cream of the crop" will win in the big open shows bunnys to use so call me bad but with the ones I'm letting him use he's got a HUGE chance of Best of Breed along with a Best in Show

    have the tanks on lock down due to camallanus worms, spotted on 2 angels Evil or Very Mad Nothing comes in nothing goes out Evil or Very Mad
    Hunted down the Levamisole HCL needed to treat it and will be going on a road trip this weekend for it.
    Got to call all pending orders and figure out if they want me to ship or wait and treat.
    I am assuming it is in all my tanks and will treat as such, stupid worms are so dang contagious and transferable that I am just assuming the worst Evil or Very Mad I think if I lost my higher end fish I would just throw in the towel and I really don't want to play with it, I just want to nuke it now and be done with it!
    Again folks be very very careful buying new fish, qt for 2-3 months.....

    Not too bad of a drive and very very worth it! Got the meds and some awesome advice! Was also very very bad and picked up 10 dime sized super red discus saw the adults and I just couldn't help myself

    Any how just ripped all the plants out of the sump and tossed them in various tanks so they will get medicated too. Gotta wait for the massive cloud of detritus to settle so I can get in there and fish out all the moorii fry.... get them tossed into the 45g long for treatment and then the sump system will be truly decommissioned to strip and paint at out leisure.

    Probably tear down the fluval chi 5g tank and bleach it all and let it sun dry for a week or two like the other tanks that I am decommissioning to save $ on meds by consolidating fish and knocking the gallon count down as much as reasonable possible.

    Well think I'm fixing to have a brain fart / light bulb went on but not sure if its going to work moment LOL really need to kick some fish out to the pond to make room to shuffle which still hasn't gotten done!! Thus going to heat up the wading pool today since it's not in direct sunlight (it's on the patio behind the fence), toss some caves in there, put one of the lunker plecs in there, put the ALL the kribs in the one tank out there and let them have at it. Will just need to go get some duckweed or something for a bit extra cover. Really wanted to heat the 150g pond up but the wading pool has more floor space may still heat the 150g later to toss some angels out to grow for the summer & fall anyways that's kinda what's going to happen
