Yeah it's getting quite difficult (and expensive) to keep the tank stocked. I hate it when fish die. I'm trying to keep them alive though. Did you ever get any GBRs?


Thank you! I appreciate the...

Update finally.
So the tank has just seen very sporadic CO2 and dosing. Low-mid tech for sure. And who says LED's can't grow plants!
I added one Amazon sword. The rest is growth. (Yes, I'm proud of...

Wow! You weren't kidding about the wisteria jungle. That's amazing! I really like the look of that corner. Hopefully that Pennywort will help jump start the filled look of the other corner. That...

Unfortunately, don't have a diffuser.

New plants look great!
I'm about 90% sure that your GBR is a male. I'd say throw a female in there and go from there. GBR's can be very hard to sex, but I see more male in this fish than female....

I didn't even see the tank size you listed. Those lights wouldn't even be close to low light for that tank. You can grow plants with the light, just not as fast as a T5 fixture that draws triple the...

Pearling plants and no algae means your tank is trying to tell you something: don't change anything!
Getting rid of fish to a good home is always difficult, but your GBR will be happy you did it!

The plants all look very healthy from what I can see. That moss will really look great when it covers the driftwood. I love the wispy look of it.
