The algae finally died off since my light fixture broke
So I put my tank (since it's so tiny & light) in the bathroom, where it gets 0.01% of sunlight so the plants could survive until I get a new fixture. It's been 4 days, and I still haven't gotten a fixture. But somehow, my glosso still continues to grow. And I had thought that my micro sword was dying, but it was actually just BGA that was dying.
So now that my tank is algae free, my tank will be going through a lot of changes.
1) Take out the oto, he just looks too big and is ruining my tiny amazon forest-look.
And he poops too much, kinda like having a goldfish.
2) Since this will be an amazon biotope, I want to "complete" my fish list by adding
exotic and rare fish. I already have 2 sixray cories (2cm each), and I want to add
4 micro vilma's tetra, in case nobody knows what they look like:
the micro version grows up to 1cm which is just perfect for my tank.
I also want to a Borelli Apistogramma, from a fish farm here that has a
"pygmy hybrid" of them. They grow to like 4cm, and this is what they look like:
3) I want to add some HM and Rotala Wallichii to the left corner in the back.
