    Shrimp tank:
    1. removed thread algae and cladophora.
    2. added cardboard underneath the front legs to level the stand. Required removing 80% of the tank water so I could lift it.

    Large aquascaped tank:
    1. Added two emersed mystery plants, one eye-catching purplish plant that I hope will look great when submerged leaves develop.

    Look at them and think: I need to do some maintenance...trim, clean, water change. Wonder when I'll have some time for that midweek. I hate being gone over the weekends and missing best time for regular maintenance.

    Today I did water changes on 'Colorado' and 'Approaching Snowdon'. Approaching Snowdon also had it's path cleared of Akadama grains. Both tanks pipes were cleaned too. Fish were fed in Colorado and the 7 stock tanks. Spent half an hour as a statue in front of the Zebra Plec tank :)

    75% is my weekly norm, and 90% once a month:D. The regime keeps my breeding Mbuna in first class condition.;)

    I strongly suggest you start another Topic for that and list every thing including distance and traveling time.

    When its fully planned its not a difficult thing to do every thing depends on all your preparation detailed plans, also remember that is only one small part of shifting.

    That's great all I can say is double check every thing and expect the unexpected.
