Today I performed a thorough cleaning of the tank, trying to get as much algae off as I could during the draining of the tank. I was also sick of the hugely long roots on the frogbit, so I enlisted my 6 year old daughter to help me trim them all.

Still cycling, ammonia's down to .5 ppm, 0 nitrites/nitrates.

Still lots of algae as you can see... I'm just biding my time until I can get cycled and add ferts. Some algae eaters won't hurt either...

That's all for today. Hopefully next pics will include FISH!
