Yeah, I'm rescaping my 55 in 1-2 weeks and I'll have one then!

Very cool! I have always had trouble scaping my own 55 because it is so narrow front to back.

I'm back at my apartment now but my lights are off and I'm about to celebrate spring break with my roommate.. haha so I'll get some pics up tomorrow. All my fish are alive and everything looks great so I couldn't be happier.

Yeah, I'm dying for a 75g but my mom is still in charge here.... I need a ton of vals first to do anything really great.

Haha a 75 gallon is soooo much better than a 55.. but even though I've moved out, sometimes I swear my mom still runs the show too!

Yeah, I think we'll never be fully rid of them, but then again, that's what they're here for. Making sure we don't pull the wrong strings. I've quite a few plans for when I move out, though. All of them have to do with aquariums.

Hey check out this absolutely terrible vid I posted on youtube. I was feeding my fish, whipped out my phone... My hands shake pretty badly all the time, but it was the best I could do!

Enjoy

Thank you very much! I have your lillies planted on the left side of the tank and they're sprouting new shoots. I can't wait for them to grow in. I also removed most of the floating plants as they block light so badly. I also noticed that I've been making a fairly dumb mistake this whole time! I have been using a 1mL syringe to dose liquid ferts.. I thought it was a 10mL syringe this whole time! So I have been dosing 1/10th of what I thought, not to mention using 1/10th the dechlorinator that I thought :/

Well, everyone's fine, so I don't think there's anything to worry about, but definitely up the dechlorinator...

Ha yeah luckily I do small frequent water changes so I have never had a very large amount of chlorinated water in my tanks at once. After adding an actual dose of fertilizers, increasing light levels, and upping my CO2 my plants were pearling again today which they haven't done in a few weeks.

I'm thinking about grabbing some spinach tomorrow and seeing if my otto will snack on it. He seems to be eating constantly and pooping once in a while. His belly looks a little round but I just want to be safe.

Yeah, spinach or Hikari algae wafers will work for that.

Just wanted to let everybody know that my tank is still up and running ! My plants are growing really well, I have no algae and haven't lost any fish! I have never had this much success with a tank and I contribute it to members on this forum!

Thanks everyone

Figured I'd post an update!

So my original plans fell through long ago as I could not locate or purchase my target species. The tank I believe is going to turn into a standard community tank and I believe that will be more enjoyable in the long run.



Can anyone identify this pale/clear tetra?
