9/7/18- Cleaned trout tank. Cut insulation foam. Connected chiller tubing and filter tubing.
9/9/18- Filled trout tank with tap water. Turned on water filter and air pump to check that they are functional.
9/11/18- Turned on water chiller. Put in the cleaned or newly purchased filter media into the filter canister. Added 45 mL of Special Blend into the ceramic filter media. Added 15 mL of Special Blend directly to the tank. Cut chiller tubing so that it created only a slight U-shape under the tank. This way condensation from the tube falls into a tray, and not onto the chiller machine itself.
9/13/18- Tested pH. Regular pH test = 7.6. High pH test = 7.4. This is normal for the pH of tap water.
