Nitrites drop to .25ppm today . Ill check again tomorrow and see if drop for good or it was just because of he 50%WC but they where going down before so I hope this is the end of the cycle.

I don't know where I'm going but I'm on my way.

Well heres my update.
Im planing to paint the back black in the future and do a little more clearing when I get home from work. The Green Greko has taken off and the onion is growing fine I had to trim the onoin and Water Wisteria move some of the Greko and Ludwigia repens to get more light. Some of the DHG is replanted but the cichlid are pulling it out. It growing floating so Im not to pissed.{anyone want two Cicilid}.Some of the Water Wisteria clippings are replanted.
The new Aquaclear is working great the carbon has been taken out and Phos-zorb put in to see if I can get the brown algae to stop. Yep I need a new camera.

I think at the next WC I'm going to vaccum the open areas and reform the substrate to give it a smoother look. I found some more Red Ludwigia at a LFS and some Anano shrimp

I don't know where I'm going but I'm on my way.

I'm going to move them this week some time and move the Shrimp, Cardinal Tetra, and Cory in to the 29g and add some more fishies.

May be some Neon, a Betta, or a set of German Blue Ram.

I don't know where I'm going but I'm on my way.

The low stuff is Crypt Wendtii/Green Greko and the tall one is a onion I got at PETCO.
The onion is growing like a weed I had to trim it it was growing across the top and messing with the water flow on the surface it loves nitrates and has help me get mine under control they use to be like 60-80 ppm now they are 30-50 ppm.

I don't know where I'm going but I'm on my way.

I think a black background would look fantastic That's a neat piece of driftwood, awesome shape! Definitely jealous haha and I like that look of the corner with the rock, too, very nice!

Are you trying to get a carpet out of your foreground plants?
