    I hope you get some nice big ball's!!!! 

    Chris here...  The balls have arrived...  Dawn Michele...  You would be sorely disappointed in size... the largest seems to be about 1/2 inch in. Diameter...  The smallest, about 1/4 inch...  But there's lots in the "very" little bag... Hopefully they are mighty!!! :rofl3

    Rain barrel.  Then use a mixture of tap and rain water.

    Chris here...  Shakaho, great idea...  we will get more rain tomorrow... I'll put all my buckets out and see how much I can catch...  we are supposed to to get 3 back to back storms with lots rain...  I added a bag of purigen at the last water change on the16th hoping that it would assist in keeping the nitrates check...  I think it has helped.  This mornings test I'd at PH 8.0, Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 5...  So no WC today!!!! :happydance  I fully expected to be up to my arm pits doing another WC today...  YAY!!!!! 

  4. Chris here... Dang!  I got a water issue again... :(

    California has been a 5 year drought...  The rain fall we are getting this winter has officially ended the drought in th north but we in this south have not had an official declaration as yet...  But after 5 years of minimal rain...  The large rain runoff is messing with the city water... Grrrrrr...  up until last week my tap water has always been PH 8.2, Ammonia.25, Nitrite 0 and Nitrates 0....  Now with all the runoff my tap is PH 8.0 - 8.2, Ammonia .25 - .50, Nitrite 0 and Nitrates 10 :(.  So guess who is doing a WC every 3 days...

    I know it's temporary... But dang it all, I'm not liking it!!! 

    Does anyone have any suggestions to assist me in managing this short term pain in my booty??? :thud 

    Thanks in advance... :heart 

     

  5. Chris here... :rofl3 Thank you all!!! When I told my hubby what the consensus was of what he was seeing, catching and putting in the garbage disposal was poop... His response was WTH, "I don't even poop that big!!!"

     

     

    :tomuch:

     

    Might be a good idea to fast for a day or two . . . :lol2

     

    The fish, not your husband.   :rofl

    Sounds like the husband needs food!

    Chris here... :teehee:rofl3 You are toooo funny!!! Love it!!!

  6. Chris here... :rofl3 Thank you all!!! When I told my hubby what the consensus was of what he was seeing, catching and putting in the garbage disposal was poop... His response was WTH, "I don't even poop that big!!!"

    The way it was moving around the tank he thought for sure it was alive... Really bad videos for sure... but I thought to ask the experts just in case since I'm not there...

    I hope to get home next week so he won't have do care for the fishys any more... They are mine... So he really is doing a great job with some thing he has not done before... (And doing it for two months!!!) I think I'll keep him... :heart

  7. Chris here... Hi all... I need your help for my Hubby... I'm still I'm the Pacific Northwest on a family emergency... Almost 2 months now... :( but we do what we can for our loved ones...

    My hubby has been bravely caring for my water babies while I have been gone... And has been doing a great job... But 0'dark thirty this morning he sent me two very poor quality videos and asked me "WTH" is this??? (That was the exact message with the videos). Of course I have absolutely no clue... I asked him to take a picture of it out of the water... But he had sucked it out of the tank and sent it down the garbage disposal before he messaged me... I asked him if it was poop... He said it was too big for poop... I asked him if it was alive, he said that he thought so... I told him I would try to find out if any one on the forum know what it was and how it got in the tank....

    The hubby has been doing weekly WCs of 90%. Tank is 40 gallons with 2 AC 70s, 1-24" air wand, 1- air stone and 1 diy skimmer to skim the protein from the surface water... Tank temp is set at 75 degrees.... I believe that he did the last water change on Friday, which is 4 days ago... I know my son's girlfriend has been testing the tank daily with the API Master test kit... I will have to get the latest numbers from her... but if any of the results were less that top quality, she would have let me know right away....

    My hubby's last txt to me before he left for work was to contact "Seaquest DSV" for help! :rofl3 at least he has a sense of humor about freaking me out at 4:30 in the morning when I'm a few thousand miles a way... :thud
