Who's doing a water change tomorrow morning?
 
50% scheduled here. The towels will be strewn across the floor in all their glory. My fish will watch as I tempt fate, clutching my orange homer paint bucket, my precarious grip on its wet lip slipping ever more with each step I take towards the aquarium.

Who else has plans to start their weekend with aquarium maintenance?

LOL I start EVERY weekend with aquarium maintenance. Since I am fairly new, It is still kind of fun. I like tinkering around with the fish tank. No bucket for me though. I use my Python to suck the water out and I just use empty water jugs for adding the Prime to the water. It is relatively quick and painless. I might break out my new magnet float and try that on the glass a little even though the Oto's manage to keep it looking pretty darn good. New toy, gotta try it. :)

LOL I've been doing w/c's all week. I did the Bettas and Guppies on Monday, the 55 community tank on Wednesday, the 55 cichlid tank on Thursday. I'll be doing the 37 gallon and S/W today. I had to take my 10 gallon QT down as it developed a small leak so that's one less tank to do.

Me too! I have to spread them out or it becomes more like work than a labor of love.

I try to do that, but almost every time I say to myself, "well, I'm already hauling buckets around, why stop at three tanks?" and end up doing them all. A lot of work, sure, but I like being able to sit back and relax once it's all over and not have to worry about doing more water changes the next day.

Still cycling the new tank, but will change one-third of the water tomorrow. I'll have to move the dishes away from the sink so I can lug the bucket into the kitchen, dump the water, re-fill, and treat with Prime. Might add some Nutra-Fin and salt in a cup, so my Platy doesn't stress out from the nitrite spike.

Water changes are on my agenda today as well. They need it;
2 year old grand daughter came for a visit and she always has to feed Nana's fish. I have to admire her enthusiasm and I'm glad to see another generations interest in aquariums.

A 1/4 change on the 40 gal. Plus the beta :)
