    Just a happy Friday update

    The local water supply seems to be settling down so we're back to 50% daily water changes...

    There's not much to report, although they do seem skittish these days. Water quality has been fluctuating due to Mid-West flooding, but they are still eating good when I'm not watching. Food is usually gone within 3 minutes...

    Like I said, they've been a little skittish lately, but it seems to have settled down a bit. Or so I thought... It looks like this guy may have nailed the wall

    It seems fine... eating and swimming fine...

    Its a real shame for a discus in such a great shape .

    It's just one side. So far it shows no ill effects. Let's just hope it bruising. I hate to see such a nice fish scarred for life

    Well, I'm not sure if this qualifies as an official update, but to my disgust, when I got home this evening, I discovered a colony of ants had taken up residence in the tank. I mean there were thousands + of them!! There were even dime size clusters of them floating in the tank, and the HOT Magnum was clogged with dead ants. I can't even see a trail going outside, so I think it was 100% in the tank and possibly feeding on left over spilled food particles. The worst part is this tank is in my bedroom. It took me an hour to clean them all off, and there are a few stragglers that keep showing up, but I'll be checking quite often!

    I did a 90% WC and haven't seen any ill effects. Actually, more relaxed than they have been for quite some time considering I'm all over the tank every 15 minutes killing straggler ants, lol. All I know is they were isolated on the tank with no trail leading to or away from the stand, and they weren't there this morning
