I believe so. It was only going to be 4, but Rachel sent me an extra. They're happy anyway. Social creatures and stuff. There's 11 amanos in there too. Needless to say, my algae woes are gone.

Looking great, that riccia is pearling up a storm! Looks like the glosso is sending out runners too, I'll bet carpeting is just around the corner.

Congrats on battling through the algae woes. Those amanos are pretty awesome eh? Just absolute clean-up masters.

Glosso is spreading like crazy and the riccia is just amazing in its own right. Everything is doing very well now. Can't wait for the glosso to spread into the front right corner...means I can turn the outflow from the 2211 all the way up.

I did break my Pollen Glass Mini, though. RIP money. :/

Love this tank. Good work so far!

That's what worries me about glassware. They seem very fragile and its tough spending all that money for it to break very easily. I broke a diffusor and wasn't even in the tank yet. Well I fixed it with a little bit of silicone. It may not be pretty but it works. If your in a pinch you can do that until you get a new one.

No need to, I've always got spare up aqua ones laying around.

As promised, an update. Had the replacement ADA diffuser shipped out today, should be here Monday or so. $139.95 later... Oh well, such is life and the current state of the USD vs JPY. Trimmed the hairgrass down since it was getting unruly. Other than that, everything is on autopilot. Fish next Thursday!

Post WC


About an hour post WC - pearling riccia!


Cool overhead shot. Healthy stuff.


Amano army, assemble!
