Too lazy to update overcrowded first post. The tank looked like this a bit ago before a huge trim.
Added fish yesterday, 7 Blue tetras and 3 Glowlight danios. Blue tetras are very active and the danios also. The tank dynamic is a lot different now than with just the cardinals and neons. Pretty maxed out with about 20 tetras, 2 siamese algae eaters, 2 otos, 3 danios. They seem to be fine due to the tank being heavily planted. The sae are almost always hidden digging around somewhere.
Also the hair grass is slowly being taken over by the moss(pretty much inevitable). It bothered me at first but then sort of grew on me, I like the layered effect and grown in feeling of it. Tank differs from pic a bit right now, its trimmed down and I added a few more stones due to the old ones becoming moss covered. Subwassertang ball has reached about the size of a fist and started from about one peice that was an inch long about 6 months ago.
Also managed to defeat clado and hair algae for the most part. I did manual removal for as long as I could stand then dosed algae fix at slightly lower than the usual dosage and began using excel more regularly. I also grew out the stems from about 6 inches to around 12 inches then cut the top 6 inches off to get rid of any algae that was growing on the top areas(closer to the light). Unfortunately I can't use this method for my shrimp tanks which are also suffering from hair algae. The shrimp seem to breed better with it in the tank though(its forming sort of balls of algae for them to frolic in :P)

Rams a bit underexposed but he was really showing off his colors . They were spawning recently on the right side in the "anubias jungle" There is a leaf in there which seems to be perfect for egg laying. One of these days I need to try to hatch them. Another project
Really digging cardinals lately. Great colors.

Added a new video. First post is getting pretty lengthy, I should do something about that...
Not extremely satisfied with the video but I only spent about 20minutes making it/uploading. Not too bad

The funny thing is that staring at the tanks actually makes me fall asleep and I prefer to stay up late. The 10g turns off around 9pm and the 20 at 11:23. The 5g is my night light and stays on until around 2am.
Still trying to improve my photography skills and it seems like something you never master. Using a tripod and a remote shutter release or using the cameras timer helps a lot with the sharpness of the photo. I still need a new lens though, wish money grew on trees...

|jmf3460||lovely tanks and kudos on your photography skills. I am envious of falling asleep in your room, it would take me forever to go to sleep with all the good stuff to look at.|
