im back. came home to a clean looking tank but with a slight increaser in BBA and there is still some GSA i think that one nerite isnt enough. also came home to co2 that is coming out slower than i though possible! barely any! but the plants still had good growth. especially the macrandra!

the 5.5g also has GSA and some other algae on the glass. but the moss is all clean and has grown alot! too bad i dont want the moss. there is also 4 4 small leaves poking out of the substrate. i think it is a crypt that melted and i though that died. the sakura is so huge!!!! i think its a female and i think its saddled

time for an update. the plants have grown well. but im getting BBA ill bleach dip when i transfer over to a new tank. but i cant a mr aqua 11.4g or similar anywhere! this is really driving me crazy! no places online have it for a reasonable price. all the reasonable ones are sold out and/or have an added $13 handling charge!!! this one place shows up on google shopping saying for $45 with free shipping but when you go to the website it says you have to pay shipping. and the final cost like like 80 bucks!

anyone have a place i can get one?? please!

anyways here are pics





macrandra







5.5g time- i have decided not to try for AGA with this one. just go with the acuario de rio negro so right now its still not scaped at all. i will do it sometime. ill tear it doen, clean all the algae and rescape and add the riccia stones over. sadly the mesh i used for the riccia stones was smaller than i probably should have used, so its just now starting to poke through. but so is some BBA so ill make sure i bleach dip before i add them



what kind of moss is this??



random hygro difformis



crypt? that decided to come to life out of nothing



this girl has grown so much! i think she is saddled
















i have pics of the 29g that ill add tomorrow
