Nitrite spike still hasn't started to fall, so I did a 50% water change. May have to do do another one later today. Hopefully I can get them down to 2-3PPM. Once that's done, then I'll see what happens.
Changed 100% of the water and am seeing what appears to be a tiny ammonia spike, though it could be related to the Prime used to treat my tap water. Will test again in a few hours. If all is well, then I'll start moving Tigers and Cherries into the tank.
A couple rough shots:
Tossed in several Narrow Leaf Java Ferns that are in rough shape. We'll see how they fair. If they end up growing, I'm thinking the look could be pretty neat.
Looks really great! I loved pool filter sand in my 29G high, until I got a 20L to replace the 29high and all the babies blend into the sand!! I look from the top and think I got them all only to look from the front and see A TON!
Cool! Thinking of getting a new 5.5 or redoing my current one. Has cherry shrimp in there now. It was set up for fish so it's really hard to see them.
Tank looks great!! Thinking of doing all moss for mine, then I can see them
I forgot to add, I've gotten really awesome large black pieces of lava rock at petco! Didn't look great in the package, so when I got it home I took a hammer to it and got two large pieces and one smaller one. Looks really cool My LFS has some 'lacerock' that looks pretty much like lava rock, I like it a little better. If anyone is interested in it, let me know. I can get some for you.
