It was another night of success for the dominant Australians as they once again claimed the lion's share of gold medals on offer here, topping the podium on four occasions as England struck gold twice.
Two of Australia's wins came with the added bonus of Commonwealth Games records as the 4x200 metres freestyle quartet of Emma McKeon, Alicia Coutts, Brittany Elmslie and Bronte Barratt continued the green and gold's dominance in the relay events with a time of 7min 49:90sec ahead of Canada and England.
Emily Seebohm touched home in a Games record time of 59.37 to beat her own 59.51 set earlier in the day to retain her 100m backstroke title with Georgia Davies of Wales 0.21 back and Australian Belinda Hocking taking third.
World champion Daniel Fox secured Australia's third Para-swimming medal of the Games after storming to victory in the men's 200m freestyle S14 in a time of 1:57.89, over two-and-a-half seconds clear of second placed man Thomas Hamer of England while Welshman Jack Thomas secured bronze.
Taylor McKeown took over compatriot Leisel Jones' mantle as the women's 200m breaststroke queen, finishing ahead of silver medallist and fellow Australian Sally Hunter and England's Molly Renshaw.
Jones held the title since Manchester 2002 while, prior to that, another Australian Samantha Riley claimed the title at Victoria 1994 and Kuala Lumpur 1998.
Francesca Halsall became England's second most successful swimmer in Commonwealth Games history after she took gold and a Games record in the women's 50m freestyle.
The 24-year-old's time of 23.96 was enough to secure a ninth Commonwealth Games medal putting her behind only Karen Pickering with 13 medals.
It was also her second gold after claiming the 50m butterfly title at Delhi 2010.
Behind her, Australia's Cate and Bronte Campbell's silver and bronze medal was the first time in Commonwealth Games history that two sisters won a medal in the same individual swimming event.
Scotland's Ross Murdoch came into the men's 100m breaststroke looking to repeat his heroics from Thursday (July 24) when he took the 200m breaststroke gold ahead of hot favourite and team mate Michael Jamieson.
But Englishman Adam Peaty had other ideas as shattered the hopes of the partisan crowd in the arena by powering to victory in a Games record time of 58.94.
Murdoch, 20, had to make do with bronze behind South African Cameron van der Burgh.
Reigning Olympic, world and Commonwealth Games champion Chad le Clos showed he really is the man in the 200m butterfly as he powered to victory and broke his own Games record in the process with a time of 1:55.07.
The 22-year-old from Durban revealed afterwards that he injured his ankle getting off the team bus on Friday night and had been in some discomfort.
"Last night it was quite swollen before the heats so I was a little bit nervous for tonight," he said.
"I got off the bus and one of the coaches was with me and I have literally fallen, and I was like, 'Ah'.
"I was quite scared actually.
"The physio strapped it but I was so nervous because I didn't know it I would be able to swim."
"It's okay, it's not too bad, you forget about it in the race."
Australia's Grant Irvine was second while another South African Sebastien Rousseau took bronze.
