It's getting bad where she is near tears and her orthopedic surgeon has nothing he can currently prescribe. Hoping when she sees the follow up doctors for the stroke they remove some of the 5 meds they put her on and that means she can go back to a stronger pain med.

    We are all so thankful that she made such a great recovery from the stroke though.
    Wonderful news that she is doing well from her stroke. I hope her pain can be decreased very soon.

    Me too, she was in tears again this morning from the pain. I don't know what she or the docs can do.



    How have you been doing?

    Well I have gotten the 150 gallon tub set up in the basement. The FX4 is a beast and the stocktub has made it hard to get the in and out tubes to sit within the tub. I had some old heater suction cups that I used on the intake but the output spray heads are a PITA to get to stay. Its so powerful the suction cups pop off and the heads float to the top were they pop out of the water. Fortunately I have lids which keeps the water in the tub. I set it up on Sunday and today I tied the spray heads to a rock to keep them down. Its working and I will use this while the tub is cycling. I have to think of an alternative, and may try to find some plastic coated magnets to hold it to the side instead. My goldfish are getting big enough where the string tied to the rock may hurt them if they are goofy and bumble into it - possibly trapping themselves just cause they are goofy.

    The FX4 has a bunch of sponges as well as some center wells that can accommodate other media like ceramic or chemical. I went ahead and filled the center with some media I already had in use for some time for the goldfish, as well as some sponge media I had been seeding in the 15 gallon tank that has various sponges seeding for many months now. I also moves two of the sponge filters I had used on the fish tubs, more recently the temporary goldfish tub upstairs to the 150 stock tub. I dosed the tub with 4ppm worth of ammonia and two days later when I tested the ammonia it was at 2ppm. Today I tested all the parameters and the ammonia was at 0.25, nitrites were at 5.0 (possibly greater, but that was the test limit) and nitrAtes were at 40ppm. So I did a 50% WC on the tub today because I didn't want the cycle to stall with such high nitri/ates, then I re-dosed the tank at 1ppm of ammonia.

    Sis and I also went to Fish Planet today and we picked up some glowlight tetras for the 75 downstairs with Greyere, Ghost's son and Gelato a wild colored blue acara, and a school of blue tetras.
    We also got one lone honey gourami female (cause she was alone) and I purchased all of their T. Hengeli. Wanted 12 but they had 15, so she gave me 15 for the price of 12

    Well its late and I ran out of rambling time. Lots to do tomorrow so need and early start.

    Well I tested the tub again tonight, ammonia is 0 and nitrites went from 5 or more parts per million to only one. So I am building bacteria at a good rate. Hoping this weekend I will be able to move my current goldfish into the tub and then use their tub as a quarantine tank for the two Israeli goldfish I am picking up on Saturday. I didn't want to deal with testing the nitrates tonight since when I did the testing they were at 40 parts per million. I did do a water change on the tub after I got those High readings on the nitrites and nitrates, but I did also dose the tank with enough ammonia to get 1 PPM. I explained all this in the video but I know not everyone can listen to the video.

    Goldfish tub is cycled! Got 20ppm nitrate in the 150 tub, so going to do a water change before I move Roxie and Butterscotch in. Then empty their tub, move it downstairs and get my 2 Israeli goldfish from Fish Planet.
