Default Update!

Well I got back from Vegas to find a very stained tank! The plants seem to be doing ok. The light was low due to the staining and my ludwigia grew to the top albeit a thin growth. I decided to do a major (80%) WC an rescape a bit. I tried to get rid of dead growth....

Pics!!!!;

1) Stained water
2) FT after WC and rescape
3) Left side
4) Right side
5) Right side closeup
6) Top

Thanks!

So I 'rescued' a single Otto at PetsSmart. If all goes well I'll get 5 more on Thursday when they get their shipment. Hopefully before they get on their tanks.
