Small update for all my fellow PT folks.
Well... the water has def cleared up significantly with the latest WC's. Somehow my plants just won't pearl yet, although there's already some noticable growth. The Rotalas are beginning to take their true form instead of looking all scrunched up. I'll be adding some
(shipped me the wrong plants R. Type 2) very soon from bsmith782. Hopefully that will add a bit more color contrast to the tank. Anyway, here are the pics I took today after changing the water:
Mr. Apple eating the scum buildup in my dropchecker. (I've been having a bad case of surface scum lately and I'm not sure why.
I'm kinda thinking about getting a surface extractor.
Here's what's left of my UG that I got from gsmitchell. They were yellow when I got them, but it seems like they're coming back to life, slowy but surely. They're green again
. It's just tough keeping these to stay rooted because of the cichlids.
I was also finnally able to catch a couple of my Microrasbora erythromicron sparing in the open. These little guys can be pretty viscious against one another. They spar so much they're tearing each others fins to shreads.
They love it in the bigger tank.
Here's a nice lookin male. I wish I had a macro lens for these shots.
