But it sounds likely to be something like a colony...

Apparently, things aren't *so* bad. The SAEs and light reduction made pretty quick work of the hair algae. There's a little left, but not much.

I think the weeping moss is officially all dead. ...

I think I crossed over ambitious, and into crazy. :)

I didn't really know how much work I was in for. The answer? A lot.

I've seen endler fry in my riccia at the top, as well as in any fluffy paches of moss that they can find their way into. I think they'll go wherever they feel safe.
