I agree. Moderate current is good. You don't want a ton (as in I ran two 240 gph HK powerheads in a Fluval Edge = a ton); they will still breed and do well but it may slow their growth ime.

Good luck! TDS meter is very handy in this hobby, though gH/KH tests rarer even more important if you're having any issues.

Ouch. Bushy, algae-infested Glosso.

Is there a reason you're not putting in any Otos?

If you can, feed them puppies. They grow fast and show a lot of color. Be sure to limit their puppy liver intake, as too much of a good thing like that causes molting issues.

Most people in Japan learn some conversational English. It shouldn't be too hard to find a voluntary interpreter in either case, especially with the aquaria community there!

I'm okay, but thanks for the offer. Been pondering ways to get rid of my red bamboo, actually, since it overran the tank it's in even with zero ferts or Excel.
