Thanks for the kind words! One of the main reasons why I rush home after work is to relax infront of the tank.

Week 9 Update

Tank Shot: 4/7/2014







Added in some purigen this week. I noticed that my water had a particular fine particle cloudiness and yellow tint, despite cleaning the glass. This stuff is AMAZING. What people say about the the clarity of the water that you can get is really true! I'm definitely going to be adding to my shrimp tank when my next purigen bag comes in.

Still having some cherry shrimp deaths. Not sure exactly why, but they are lethargic at times. It's probably a combination of low ph, low oxygen in the water, fert dosing, CO2 etc. It's sad that they are slowly dying off one by one, but I've made some adjustments and I hope my berried females will kickstart the population.

Week 10 Update

Today is the first trim of the background plants. They've overgrown a good amount, and while it was nice to see the fish swim underneath it, it was blocking out some light for the plants below.

Pre-trim:





Tank shot post-trim: 4/14/2014

Back to square 2!



For the limnophila and ludwigia red, I did the topping method as opposed to trimming off shoots.





If you guys haven't guessed it, I have a slight obsession with the limnophila haha! It's a lovely plant, and getting it to color up is so rewarding.

Looking really nice.
