The One Hour Challenge!

Cory has challenged us all to take part in the "1 hour challenge". Take 1 hour out of your day to spend time with your fish! You could be feeding, maintaning, and just enjoying your fish for this one hour!

Did you spend an hour with your fish today? What'd you do?

Cleaning the surface skimmer, running water tests, feeding, checking the CO2 system (drop checker, diffuser, bubble counter distilled water level, pressure gauges), thermometer, adding fertilizer and black water extract, and pruning a few leaves that were getting too large, and several minutes watching the fish, and shrimp feed and just taking in the tank's peaceful atmosphere. Daily occurrence except for the water tests, they are a bi-weekly, and the fertilizer gets added three times a week.

Pulled up a chair and stared at the tank.

Love it. Same here but I did pull a few dead leaves out and try my new aquarium coop test strips that were delivered today. Love those too.

I'm glad others also responded to the 1-hour challenge. When I heard Cory issue the challenge on the live stream I thought "I'll try it, but there's no way I can find an hour's worth of stuff do to in the fish room." WRONG. Once I got to feeding, cleaning, and moving and trimming plants around, an hour and five minutes transpired. I love the idea of the 1 hour challenge, even if you can't make it to an hour, just trying to results in a greater investment in our aquariums. Great idea.
