My wife loves cories and cories love sand so i reserved a spot for the cories.
Bought a new plant yesterday and in 24 hours more than 10 leafs fell already, hope it will recover...
That looks like Ludwiga. Its a pitb. Once the stem bends or gets warped, it will forever be that shape. Loves direct light so it should be fine unobstructed. If the light is bright enough, the leaves will grow closer together. If your light is medium or less, it will get very stemmy and the leaves will grow further apart from one another.
Any leaves you lose on those parts of the stem will be lost forever, meaning it wont regrow in those areas. Many folks just cut down the empty stem areas and replant.
Thanks for the info So if I buy this plant next time I should look how close the leaves space, the closer the better.
The first day it was under the shade of the driftwood, I guess that really killed it? I have a lot things to learn from you guys
Did a lot things today, cleaned and moved the external filter to the new tank and transferred fishes from old tank today.
I made a 2 litter DIY co2 for a week and it brought down the ph from 7.6 to 6.8 so it's just the same ph as my old tank which helps me a lot on the transfer.
Fishes seem to love the new tank right away, they didn't get stressed over the transfer.
Those are the good things but the bad thing is the BBA from old tank is now in my new tank, I'm trying to use Excel to kill them, hope it will work.
I found 2 guppy frys when I got home last night
I couldn't tell which one gave birth, the pregnant ones still looked pregnant and the flat ones were still flat...
I was a little scare that the big fish will eat them, I had experience that I left the frys in the breeder tank and one of the fishes jumped in and ate them all But this time the fishes swam by them and ignored them, hopefully they will stay that way so I don't have to do too much work to raise the frys.
I took BBA infected driftwood out from the tank, trying to kill the BBA using hot water. I've been putting boiled water on it for few days already, really want to kill the damn thing
However, there are algae on my Anubias nana and they are not doing well...I dont' know if I should trim off the infected leaves like I did to the java ferns. I also bought SAE hoping to get the algae problem in control.
Treated the driftwood for a week with hot water and h2o2, put it back in the tank, there is still algae on the driftwood. I let it sit horizontally so it the top doesn't get so much light and grow more algae.
Java fern seem to be much better than before.
I also added a 2nd diy co2 and 2 amano shrimps this weekend.
