Gave the tank a final 40ml shot of NoPox along with daily 40ml dosing.
For tomorrow and while I’m gone the tank will get 20ml NoPox per day.
I will test nitrates again tomorrow.

As for finding a job, I had a 3rd interview today with the owners of another bike company that’s local. I feel really good about it and hope to hear something soon. It would be a great Christmas present!

And Monday I get the results of my biopsy. I believe I’m clean. God has more work for me to do and I believe it doesn’t have anything to do with cancer.

That is what grandparents are for. As a kid I spent a big portion of school break at my grandparents. So many great memories
Same here. My grandparents took me to Wildwood Beach in New Jersey often as a kid. I remember it vividly. Mostly I remember watching the Three Stooges with my grandpap. We laughed so hard at those knuckleheads!

Nice, don't make me come over there and slap you wrist if that phos doesn't go up a bit! ;)
Sounds like it is coming back to you nicely, how are the fish and corals? :)
Thanks! I want the phosphates up a bit as well! Nothing affected! I’ll get some pics!

Good news Mike ! ! !

Hopefully they stay that way while your gone :)
Me too! They will be fed less so that should help!

Good morning everyone!

feelin a bit sore and still a little loopy from yesterday. I had a precautionary biopsy done on my prostate. I won’t explain the process here or the soreness for everyone’s sake! Results are due Monday. I am praying for, and expecting everything to be just fine. I show no symptoms, but some normal blood work showed a quick rise in something so better safe than sorry. Kinda like testing our tanks......... better to check it out and avoid a disaster!
On another note, NoPox increased dosage is clogging mesh socks in 24 hours! Usually they go 3 days. I will test nitrates today, again, to get a feel for how quickly they are dropping. If they dropped another 10 ppm I will cut back a bit on the dosage and get back to normal daily dosage of 18ml soon!
Heading to Ohio next Tuesday for a week to visit our granddaughter and the family. A bit nervous about leaving the tank at this time but all should be ok.
Praying for you man.

Looks as beautiful as always. Sounds like your on track but the po4 would make me clench some
I will test tomorrow. If PO4 hasn’t come up a bit more I may raise it myself. The tank will only be fed 1/2 as much for a week starting Tuesday.

Ok tested this morning.
Alk is now 9.2! I have been reducing my dose an it’s still climbing albeit slowly over time. I have reduced my dose again. Hopefully it will go down slowly while I’m gone.
NO3 is at 32. Will see if it drops with less feeding while I’m gone. Big WC when I get back.
PO4 climbed nicely! Now at .04 vs .024.
If I had to do it all over again I would still add the diamond spot goby and go thru this!

Same with the cave gobies, I will adapt the tank around them, it's not their fault. ;)
You da man! We just need a “work around “!
