UPDATE: I had to take the tank apart and start all over again. I had to replant the glosso after all the hard work and hours spent on it, which was a pain in the neck. Half of the glosso survived, and I also spread out the micro sword. The micro sword looks great, no growth
, but it pearls and it's looking rather healthy. The glosso is growing slightly upward, so I still can't declare officially that it won't send out runners and grow horizontally.
I also bought 2 pygmy corydoras, they are some of the coolest little fish I've ever had. And also got 3 platy fry as a bribe from the LFS
One of them is in the tank to help cycle, I think they will be my tank cleaners until they outgrow it. Because they tend to pick off the dying hair algae on the glosso. They're my "pretend" ricefish haha.
I just made a DIY Co2 generator, but it's been almost 2 hours and still no bubbles
I guess I'll be using the Co2 tablets after all. Will post pics soon.
