I left both pothos planted, I wanted to get some new growth that was adjusted to my room light before I plant in the hob. This is my new growth

The bgr pair in the 29g




Their new spawning area I put together this afternoon




I'm raising the temp up 2* to see if she will lay eggs again. The Cory cats are gone. Having the cave should protect the eggs from the tetras. Not sure how the tetra will do in the higher temps. I have the heater set at 83*

Removed the air stone, and wave maker for a fluval 106. This will have the in line co2 diffuser, leaving the 305 as my main filter.

Swapped out some driftwood and removed a few algae covered plants.


Moved the 10g to another room, for co2 tank room.


10g upstairs now

New addition to the 55g, he's holding his own against Sebastian who's twice the size, but my bolivian rams are pretty chill fish. He's sticking to the lower right of the tank. Not much exploration of the tank yet.

Both fish have settled nicely. My panduro has colored back up.

Pic of the planted hob in process



Not much but it's a start. I want to figure out some sort of basket going into the tank. I have some surface scum, ive removed all the air stones, to much water evaporation. I don't know what to plant in the basket nor what to make the basket out of. My last attempt with stainless steel didn't work to well.

This is something new my emeralds are doing. At one point all 6 were surfing the current like this. Couldn't get the pick quick enough.

apistogramma agassizii triple yellow came in today. Can't wait to watch this guy color up


Some plant updates
Added nangi and minima anubias






29g is a bit meh right now. I'm more trying to breed the rams than grow the plants. What led light should I go with to get me more in the med light range? Current usa planted+ or the finnex ray2?
