Update Week 2
Just done my weekly trim and I had a lot of plants floating even when I had not touched them which I found weird. The roots dont seem to be growing, or maybe I am just being impatient :crazy:
I noticed some algae on the sides of the tank, and also what looks like brown algae on the rocks, so I decided to add 3 ottos to the tank. I did a test of the water before I added them, here's the results:
I will monitor the water everyday encase I get a spike, Im now doing 50% WC ever 3 days as Im now in week 3 after today but if I get a spike I will do them more frequent.
55L iwagumi tank - 12 Harlequin, 2 otocinclus, 9 Cherry Shrimp, 1 Assassin Snail.
200L Malawi Cichlids tank - Cycling.
30L Planted tank - Cycling.
