Are you dosing at all? Need iron for sure. Also potassium. I would try and work the ph down slowly with muriatic.

Those are good points

I actually have not done anything this week. I have cellulitis caused by swimmers ear in my left ear and pretty much just go to bed when I get home from the pain and low fever. First time I have had dinner in 3 days.

Just got a good count on my fish outside.

4 catfish?
5 goldfish
1 pleco

I did use use two caps full of muriatic acid. Mixed one cap to a gallon of tank water and added to sump and repeated a hour and a half later. This was enough to drop from 8.2 to 7.6ish. I'm still going off the chart with the low end pH test and in the 7.4-7.8 range on the high end pH test. I will add another cap full tonight and see where it gets me.

Chelated iron showed up yesterday. 10% FeDTPA. Need to do the calculations on that.

I got 4 more catfish. The problem is that there is a huge size difference. Ones in the IBC are about a month to 2 months older then the ones that I got yesterday and could become potential food . The 4 remaining goldfish that where in the inside AP system have been moved out instead and the new catfish are with the bristlenose pleco. Chanel cats are finding their territory and bumping into each other for the better place in the 20g tank. The bristlenose just accepts them and does not care. I will bump up the catfish feeding inside and limit outside feeding just a bit to see if i will be able to get these guys sized up and outside in a few weeks.

My strawberries are maybe done. Slowly fading away as the tomato plants show good growth. I have one cucumber that is still growing bigger and lettuce that is going good also. A few purple basil seeds I tossed in are sprouting and looking good.

I think I still need more fish load.

Just a nice little odd thing to find. Fairly positive it is not a tadpole.

Car got totaled yesterday morning.

Multicar accident with me getting rear ended into the car in front of me. I was actually hit in the rear from two different cars. Front air bag did deploy but never touched me.

I left in the ambulance because my knees hurt so bad and could barely walk. Now knees are not that hurting as much but back and neck finally showed soreness overnight.

I have gotten a layer involved in this.

I have not done anything more outside. Just give a small hand full of food to the fish and just come back inside.

Autocorrect can do some weird things. Forget the W and give it two As on the tiny keyboard and and it turns it into layer instead of lawyer.
