Happy Thursday!

Tested the water:
NO2: .25 ppm
NO3: between 40 and 50 ppm
Did a 20% water change
Retested and:
pH: 6.6
NO2: 0-.25 ppm
NO3: 20-30 ppm

Fed the hungry buggers - once I see no NO2 and a stable NO3, I'll remove the old Aquaclear and consider adding more fish. I'm glad the Hydor is doing it's job keeping the water at a steady 80 degrees.

I'm gonna try to head to the GWAPA meeting this weekend and see if I can get more hairgrass - I inquired about my order for extra hairgrass and apparently they are back ordered. I asked for HC or nothing.

Do you think glosso or HC would look better with hairgrass?

I'm just not sure I want the maintenance and I've read glosso is a pain in the a** to grow even with high light and CO2
