New bulb, new pics

I like the new bulb so much I decided to take more pics. An Aquaglo T8 15 watter this time. It's new, it's bright, and it highlights all the nasty algae. But perhaps that's a good thing.

New plants giving me a headache

Here's hoping you're right, b/c the sick oto just gave up the ghost, today. The other looks fine. Let's hope he can live on his own for awhile, at least.

Thanks, all, for the help.

I guess my next question should be: how long can an (healthy) oto survive without a friend? Because I don't think the little guy is going to make it.

I don't need a cleanup crew, as the tank is small enough for manual cleanup, if need be. My minnows occupy all sections of the tank, so I'm covered in that respect. I've kept cories, before, and...
