Scored 4 indostomus paradoxus from Wetspot. Still battling some sort of filamentous algae. I might cut the light cycle down a bit more and see that helps. Now I'll have to start a microworm...

I checked with Rachel about the Danionella and her opinion was that up to 20 would be fine in an Edge. Of course that would be 100$........ouch. Starting to rethink that choice.

Maybe something from the Danionella group? In a tank that size I wouldn't use a full sized nerite. I'd go for one of the smaller one like bumble bee(top out at about 1/4")

The Jake's are slowly getting bolder. Hopefully they'll be out and about more soon so can get some pics. So far they ignore the rainbows and cherry barbs.

Who told you they were? They get 3" long. Most fish will eat something if it fit in their mouth. Even nano fish like CPD's will eat baby shrimp.

Added a small bumblebee nerite. Lost most of the rili colony during a heat wave. Guess I'm going to have to figure out a way to cool the tank next summer.

CO2 off gassing is going to be a problem with any sump and even worse in a wet/dry if you are using something like the full Toms RP3 filter.

As a possible correction it looks like the new rp3...
