it's been 3 months or so and i have a few questions, observations and just want to share my tank (sorry no where near the quality of most of the journals on this site)
1st Stem ID?
Next is my first of 2 inhabitant
I recently bought a TDS meter and WOW... Im sitting at 480ish it's been dropping I tested after I dosed tap is 190 a few water changes and i'll be set.
up to about a week ago i've been algae free but that has changed drastically. I tested my tank and I have 0 nitrates i've since bought seachem nitrogen and now im orange on the chart im hoping that'll help the plants outcompete the algae. I've also went low/mid tech by introducing c02 into the tank just wanted to see what if any changes happen.
once the weather warms up a bit more im going to order the rest of my planned fauna. 4 or so pygmy gouramis (Trichopsis pumila) some type of micro rasbora most likely Boraras brigittae and I'd like to try my hand at keeping cherries.
Another small update and continuation of a thread I started about losing my cherry shrimp seen hereCherry Shrimp!?...Easy??
Many members recommended I added moss so I did seen here
All seems pretty good so far I am on a much more strict lighting schedule (on timers now) and dosing schedule. I had a pretty bad hair algae boom and as seen in the picture some bad BBA.
