marko- I don't have a hardness testing kit, and I don't know that I'd trust the readings I would get on those test strips. pH is high out of my tap, but I use a Betta water conditioner with Indian Almond leaves and stuff in it to get the water to around 7 pH, a nice middle ground for all the species involved. Some would say neutral:p.

inka- Thanks, and I think it'll be even better once I get a trim done.

xenxes- I have read that 2g is too small, and were this a plant only bowl I would be worried, but there is a zoomed 501 pushing water around and producing a nice current and plenty of filtration. I have never found any measurable ammonia, nitrite, or nitrate.
I was more worried with the Otos(there were 3!) not having enough algae to eat, so I would give them blanched zucchini a couple times a week. The first died rather quickly, the second after about 2 months, and the last is looking full and frisky.

Are the RCS disappearing as you put them in?

Your bowls are beautiful. Your red root floaters look really nice and red. Do you dose with iron at all?
