So story time, lol. I took out that rock in the 30, and did a big clean, ended up finding a baby anemone! It’s very bleached, not sure why it hasn’t moved into the light anyways, my HOB filter sorta exploded last night.. the bag of charcoal somehow broke while the filter was on and charcoal started flying EVERYWHERE and then it stoped working, lol. Tank is fine though, so I went at 8:30 last night to Petco and grabbed the 206 or 306 fluval canister filter. I started putting it together and I hooked it up, started the siphon, and my lord, water EVERYWHERE. 5 gallons got out before I got the chance to take the hose out of the water. Time 6 large towels and an hour to get everything dry, but turns out I didn’t put the o ring on in the right place. I got it hooked up the right way, and I was trying to fix the nozzles and make them tighter so I cut power so it wouldn’t happen again and me and my brain fog didn’t think about the pressure already in the canister and I went to take it off and water spewed everywhere under the tank, I’m trying to hold up the electric cords with one hand, stop the leak with the other, and reach something to put the cords on with my toes another gallon and a half out of the tank. Took another 44 minutes to clean. At least I hadn’t done my water change yet but here’s the after math.

Oh trust me, it was absolutely hilarious looking back at it during it was lots of blank stares into space like “really..... really.. is this really happening?” and thanks!

The 10G Is teeming with life, I absolutely love that look. Your coraline is looking so thick already. That tank is going to be coated before you know it!
