I’ve drained tanks onto back lawn for last couple of years during water change. Today was into a bucket for a small tank. I think I might get longer tubing so it goes into sink rather than bucket.

On the plus side, my floor looks clean after mopping it dry.....

It’s been quiet on the aquarium front with all the house painting going on.

Large tank is still about the same.

Got carried away and picked up yellow phantom tetras for the other tank plus some baby bristlenose catfish. Quite nice, small fish that seem to have settled well and busy keeping each other in line.

Finally adjusted ph probe last night and running over night the fish are still alive bwahaha.

Calibrated new ph pen and it looks like the ph probe reads 0.2 or so under.

Then it went downhill - put probe in glass of ph 4 calibration solution but when I lifted up probe meter it must of pulled the probe out of glass.

Result was glass of water down tank backing and probe fell 2 metres sigh. Amazingly the probe didn’t smash and then I put a wooden spoon between tank backing and glass to let it dry with no watermarks.

Fiddled with ph probe cutout and seems better. Will check tonight.

I need to rescape plants by height but for the moment..

Left the Anubias too long out of water last change (big sigh). The leaves curled and hoped it would come back but just looks bad now. Oh well - give it a trim.

Pruned 15 or so bad leaves off the Anubias in main tank and changed the base around on shrimp tank so it no longer leans over (fingers crossed!).

The driftwood finally (finally) arrived so I added that to shrimp tank as well. Pretty tempted to get a betta (and put shrimp elsewhere) but I know that would be more work and trying to cut back :)

Couple of photos. Put some Anubias in one of the other tanks to see how it goes.
