Downoi



Green Brighty Step 2



When is it ok to take the rock off? Right now it is just keeping the wood down.

Nice new stuff!

It sucks that your friends don't like the same stuff. Find more friends?

Hang in there. It sucks now but it's only temporary.

I bought my friend a cube for his bday and now he's all into it too. He did have a slight interest though he just needed a little nudge in the right direction.

Next year the grade limit quadruples so there will be more friends

I want a cube for my birthday (or a mini m would be preferable :P)!

Yellowish water just means tannins, right?

Unless someone was playing a joke on you since the tank is in the bathroom... I'd by suspect of "yellowish" water? Hmmm... my experience with tannins is a brownish tint like tea.

Did you see any noticeable plant growth? Urea in Urine.

Wasn't there some dude on this forum a while back experimenting with that idea? I kid you not, I didn't stick around to find out if it was a joke.

I assure you all, there is no urine in the tank. The color difference in the water is barely noticeable, but it is more like a light brownish yellow. The color of it isn't like, pigmented, it just seems to have a tint.

Holy crap! I come home today from a day with my buddies and I go and look in my tank to see that my dad bought me 7 otos! Apparently none of the stores had Amano shrimp so he bought 2 extra otos instead! I'm surprised at how fat they are, must have been hungry









Well, I did say I had a massive diatom outbreak!
In other news, my downoi is growing, my wood plants are rooting, and my HC and Hydrocoytle are rooted and are sending legit runners

It looks like they are a welcome addition. If they go to work like they did in mine, you will be a happy person. I had not had a clean up crew in awhile and now I regret it.

BTW, still trying to get you some plants, just waiting until I can get you a good amount of trimmings that are algae free.

Thanks! The back of the tank is like collectoritis so I always could use MOAR plants

The "cleanup crew" is working really well, a lot of the diatoms are going away at a faster rate than growing, and my HC is sending out runners. Also my H. Pinf. is starting to transition back to emersed at the top.

I definitely think the Green Brighty step 2 is working- my reddish plants are actually growing RED and my green plants are becoming a greener green.

Hopefully sometime around Thanksgiving I can install the new stand; this weekend is my Bar Mitzvah so I won't be able to do much.

You have the same tank in my living room. My house is very tiny though haha. Can't wait to afford a home with a living room and family room but that will be in another 10 years, assuming I stay in the Bay Area/LA area haha.
