Wow so quite a bit of updates. It's been a really rough past week going into the next one.
The big tank's Aquaclear 70 filter fiinally died. The motor decided it doesn't want to live anymore. This has put my tank down to just the Aquaclear 110 and I'm not too happy about it. Water quality is suffering so I'm doing 30 gallon water changes twice a week to compensate.
That's the bad news. The good news is that I'm in contact with someone and am going to be doing an exchange for a Canister Filter. Hopefully if all goes well the Filter will be here within the week and will help boost back up better water quality.
For the 20 gallon tank things are still rough. The top I got back, well the old bulb decided it didn't want to live anymore either. That was a week ago and I put the other lights I had on it for now. Also Blue-Gill decided he was bored and ripped his top fin half off. He's now flaring hard at his reflection and part of his back fin is getting holes/tears in it. I've now got a bottle of Bettafix and will be dosing the tank with that to help him heal up. To help with the whole "I'm not stimulated enough while you are away" my family ended up purchasing 5 harlequin rasboras. I finally found them in stock somewhere. Also I finally have a new bulb for the top but I have a feeling the starter will need to be swapped next.
Hopefully the betta's fins will start to mend over the next few days. In the meantime enjoy an update video and picture of the 20 gallon.
To compare this is when the tank had the Marine-Land bulb that came with the tank top when I got it years ago:
This is with the Coralife 10,000k Daylight T8 17 watt 24" bulb.
