So i figure its time for some more updates.
I went to Van over the weekend and spent way to much money and got some new toys.
For the osaka forest i got some more rummy nose tetras bringing my current count up to 20.
I added an ivory nerite/mystery snail which was hiding during picture time.
and a co2 kit!
The new Rummy nose are much bigger than and lighter in color than my old rummys... they may be because they are full grown.. or possibly a different species? (i know there is 3 diff type of rummy nose)
The harlequins love to play in the current of the fx5 which is running about 80%
The CPD fry are starting to get their colors!
I decided to plant some DHG and see if it would carpet.
The tank is currently running 2x T5HO about 20-24" form the substrate.. I have a second fixture so i could double it to high light..but i'm not sure if i want to go down that road or not yet...
Addition of a Co2 kit. the bubbles get caught in the current and seem to hang in the water for 20-30 seconds before reaching the surface... which i'm guessing is some good hang time!
Sadly spotted some hair algae growing on some moss.. hopefully the co2 will get rid of it.... I have it running at about a bubble every .8 seconds
I also got a bunch of dry ferts to start mixing my own.. i'm going to the the PPS-Pro method of dosing
