For months I've let this tank sit here and look ugly! The fish that it housed, Mr. Oscar, died eons ago. I've always kept one giant Oscar in this tank and I totally killed that last one only after a year. Usually they live to years, like up to a decade. The longest I had one live for was 5 years. This has been driving me nuts, so today I forged forward and scrubbed this tank. Recharged the filters and removed all crap and rocks within it. It took me about 6 hours.
And here it now. New and clean with just a few Tetras in it. I will add more types of community fish throughout the week a little at a time. I've added live plants and my same old gargoyles. Everything is running great. I am so pleased that I finally got this accomplished.
In other news, Becs and Jim will not be coming for a visit as Becs' Doc does not advise her to travel. So maybe next year. Of course we are disappointed, but certainly understand and want her and the baby to be safe.
