Ha well gimme a week or 2 I just kicked the cyno/BGA algae. Stuffs recovering but fuzz algae is taking over like no other! But correct dosing should get me back on point, especially since I finally made up a batch of gets I've needed to do for like 2 months I appreciate your enthusiasm as always ovt! Nice to be back, but other hobbies been getting to me! There just never enough time, and working for a aquarium business more or less demotivates me to work on my tanks after working on others. But eh there is light at the end of the tunnel for my tanks.
As far as BGA is concerned, I dunno if anyone knows this but since I hear marycn product line is outa business you can actually use these 2 products I found at my store for treating the same problem but in saltwater aquariums. One is Red slime remover, eh works okay, and then there is ChemiClean, works better just take a few days to see anything. I am sure there is many more of the same type of product out there, these are just the 2 I have experience with.
I'm actually thinking about doing something a bit less maintenance, I have a 75 and some blue dolphin cichlids would look awesome in till they grow out and need something larger! It's so much to keep up with dosing ugh..
Ovt, would like to see some more pix of your tank soon also. Haven't seen much action over the recently. I'll post some pic soon I promise!

And yes, I do have 3 or 4 journals going, still awaiting your smug remarks, ha!

Alrighty then! UPDATE time..
So it has been a while since I have updated this place and it has been years since I have moved this huge piece of driftwood, for a few good reasons, but eh I guess change is inevitable and usually a good thing. So here we go, took that piece and flipped it back over again until I break this tank down (hopefully SOON, that is when I can move). I tried to hang it a bit different and have a nice place for the fish to congregate under/near, and it seems to be working so far. Looks kind of like it did years and years ago but I tried to give it a spin and add move hardscape (rocks). My L-052 butterfly pleco died randomly a few days ago for unknown reasons, and I am so pissed cause he had just started looking a lot better, better color, full stomach and all. So now back to the drawing board for another nice pleco, but who knows I might just replace him if this store in town still has them.
Well on to the pix:
This is my FTS before I ripped out plants and moved things.
Full tank shot after the reset and allowed to grow in for two or so weeks:
Random plant shot:
Well that is it from me for now, so until next time! thanks for looking!
