I've had the diy co2 on this tank for almost a month now. I have had a serious uptake in growth. The large hygro has not reached the surface of the tank and has started to produce a bunch of very vibrant green side shoots. I added some blue hygro, or corymbosa last night. I had this plant when I first started the planted tank adventure. They did not make it. I'm interested to see how they fair in the tank now, 10 months later after a lot of changes were made. The Bolivian Rams are starting to show more color and I'm starting believe I now have 2 pairs in the tank. I need to pull the sarpaes out, they keep nipping at tails. They never did this before, but in the last 3 weeks they have started nipping everything in the tank, so they are coming out if I can catch them.

I raised the tank light up another inch above the tank. The BBA has started to subside now. Still some on my anubias and jungle val though. I'm going to let the large temple grown above the water. I would like to see them flower.

Im rather pleased with the growth ive had since adding the co2.

The corys and otos have claimed the stargrass on the right. Each bolivian has claimed an inbetween section of the middle mopani. They have their own little apartments divided with plants. I will try and snag a photo of them in the morning when they are poking out.

I believe I have. Based on the tails and chins I have two males and two females
Over the last week ive noticed some lip locking between the same couples. I really wanted two pairs. I pulled the serpaes out. They were nipping fins and being to aggressive towards the other fish. Since removing the tank has really come alive. Fish are schooling once again and the new growth on the bettas tail has stayed.

timeline so far-
From adding the 2 additional females
-Days 1-3-nova went female to female dancing and strutting his colors off

-4-5 he starting following the female that showed him zero interest.

-Day 6 female showed red spots on belly, nova and her were side by side now 7-now

-They dug a pit first in the back corner. She laid the eggs and he rubbed against the pot. They then moved them to the pit and covered them.

Several pits have been dug around around the pot. Eggs are in one of them.
