So my male GBR has been clenching his tail... don't know what the reason is, so I checked my levels and I had an ammonia and nitrite spike! I found a dead shrimp in the lily pipe suction yesterday and didn't really think anything of it. I just removed it.
Did a PWC, so hopefully things will change with him. All the other fish became more active after the change, so i think this is a good sign.
Anybody else have dark coloured amanos? Do you know what the cause is. I happened to catch this although I haven't really seen them at all since adding them/the GBRs.
I also added some Anubia sp. Nana today

|styxx||They're just shy because of the openness of the tank but they'll get used to is. Nice to see the shrimp are adjusting well. If they're molting that generally is a good sign that they're growing.|

Tank maintenance day yesterday! Going to be gone for three days this weekend so I wanted the tank clean before we went. The tubing was pretty gross. Some of the algae stained the tubing. Does anybody else have this problem?
Our new rams. I thought that I got a male and a female. Can anybody tell from these pictures? The female has a noticeable pink area on her belly (second picture), a bit rounder of a head and is slightly smaller than the male. A lot of the other things are common between the two. Since yesterday though the male has been hiding between the two main rocks while what I think is the female acts the same. Is this normal?
Shrimps coloured up a lot and I think all of them have molted!

Current Tank Stats
Usually twice a day, fasting one day a week. Feeding frozen food every couple of days (A quarter of a block is plenty!)
Last night, after about five weeks running, I did some changes on the filter.
Trying for every seven days, but that is too long at this point. Usually go to the top of the biggest rock, so about 5 gallons.

Aaaaaaannnnnddd I present fish (and shrimp)!!
Been to busy to post. Got three rummy nose tetras last monday and three RCS.
They were pretty pale when I first added them:
Tank parameters where still doing OK, so I added 7 more rummies and 3 otos on wednesday.
Two of the otos had stubby tails when I got them, apparently this is happens regularly. They are already growing back!
The otos seem to be pretty comfortable in the tank... the rummies on the other hand. When the lights are off, they will swim in the whole tank. When the lights come on, they all hang out in the deepest part of the tank in the front. Everyday they are getting better though. They were eating the first night I added them to the tank.
Current FTS (August 25, 2012)
Still trying to figure out the correct dosing/CO2/light combination. The HC was looking really good after I trimmed it but now it is covered in algae...
Last time I checked, all pH/Ammonia/nitrite=0 and nitrates at 40
