Three otos now >.> gonna get something from someone about fish abuse and over stocking soon....

I'll have to see, from past experience I may still have to dose micros and less macros. But I've only had these guys for two days, so I'm holding off the ferts to see if they can feed the system. The betta doesn't have much bioload at all. The bulk of the bioload come from the hoard of pond snails...

woke up to this guy trying to nom algae off the HOB outflow. :P

Eh....I think we are all guilty of overstocking at times. I don't see a problem with it so long as you maintain a regular water change schedule.

I'm going to use your tank as ammo against my wife. She was amazed when I brought her to the ADA store in Ridgewood. Pictures of tanks like yours will get her in the mood. All I need is a short window.....I don't need much time to hook one up!

Here's a quick update. I kind of left trimming floating, so the top is extremely messy

It is messy, but you have nice growth in there.

Came home after a vacation to a mess of plants with soft green algae (which went away with one water change)



Did a pretty big trim and cleaned up a bit
