Welcome to Day 5 of the 31 Days to Build a Better Saltwater Aquarium Challenge.
Yesterday, you built a list of the fishes you wanted most and you prioritized them in terms of interest and relative aggression. What was the number one fish from your list?
Take a moment today to celebrate your progress. Building a better saltwater aquarium isn’t just about doing work and chores on it. It’s also about enjoying your tank.
Go out and get that #1 fish and put it in the quarantine tank you set up on Day 3.
If the fish is parasite free and healthy, he or she (or he + she) will be ready for you at the end of the month. What better way to treat yourself for taking the 31 day Build a Better Saltwater Aquarium Challenge than to celebrate with the addition of your favorite animal?
You will have that fish to look forward to as motivation and reward for all of your efforts to build a better aquarium.
See the next day in the challenge
Ah, if only I could. No lfs.
very sad indeed 😉
My next purchase will be coral. Waiting to get the tank in shape for more coral. I need to do a couple large water changes. I’m imbearaced to say that I wasn’t during RODI water, no tap but just RO water.tds read high. I just got an RODI 5 stage filter so now I can do a few massive water changes and get my tank on track.
John, don’t be embarrassed. We all do things a little differently. no harm, no foul.
