Water changes today!!

Every Sunday I do a 50% wc my 72g planted, 72g brackish, 26g riparium I also do all my trimming in my planted and scrub all the algae in my brackish this usually takes a few hours. I always wonder how many other people are working on they're tanks on Sundays it seems like that is the most common day for wc's especially with ei dosing

Refilling my 29 gallon while I check what's new on Planted Tank.

Also did water changes on two 30 gallons, two 20 longs, three 10 gallons, two 5.5 gallons. Next I'll do the 15, and the 20 high. And I think I'll save the nano tanks for later. Whew.

Anybody wanna come mix my salt lol

Freshwater tanks are nothin but haveing. To mix and dump 7 five gallon buckets sucks all because a few years ago when my wife and I first go into the hobby she had to have one of those little green spotted puffers Walmart sells as freshwater. Lucky me they live up to 15 years.

Salt is easy to mix: put the slat and mineral blend in a garbage can and add warm water and dechlor. Turn on pump. Come back later and it is mixed. Do water change.

I would like to do the garbage can idea but I live in an apartment, so I don't have much room.

Any suggestions on something tall and slim that would hold 35g or maybe something I can fit in the stand of a 72g bowfront
