Things have calmed down with my grandmother, she's ok thankfully. Going back to school tomorrow, just finished showing the father how to dose the tank. Heres a shot with the filter and powerhead ON followed by one with the filter and powerhead OFF. Never got around to buying the DSLR, shots still from my iPhone. Theres a little bit of riccia in the moss front and center, which is no longer there (just took it out). Since this tank started I've had to remove riccia from different parts of the tank about once a week. It never comes back in the same spot, very strange.
There are literally HUNDREDS of sakura babies. One interesting thing about this tank, with the water changes being once a week or sometimes once every week and a half, I no longer need to dose PO4 or N. 10 pumps of brighty K, 10 pumps of brighty step 1, and 10 drops of ECA every morning. Also, my timers died 3 weeks or longer ago and I've been turning it on whenever I feel like it and simply letting it run 10-12 hours, usually 10. I usually turn it on 3-4pm and turn it off at 1-2am, but today for example it didn't go on until 6pm, it'll be going off at 4am (yes I am a night owl). Between all the shrimp, the ottos, and the amount of decaying plant matter (its fully grown theres no where else for new stuff to grow, theres no visible decay but theres a good film of protein on the surface after about a day of completely removing it, indication of plant matter decay) I no longer need to dose N or P for it's levels to stay at appropriate PPM's
