Yeah no problems now that i could use help with just got done battling an alge bloom just looking for some people in the hobby. Most of the advice i could use is just some of the more basic things.Well actually whats a good way to oxygenate your tank i have a pretty good size air stone strip in now, but my cory cats keep darting to the surface to get air. I have it pretty well planted and i thought the plants would do a lot of the oxygen producing.

that is just what cory cats do, they do it in the wild, I saw a vid of them down in south america in one of the rivers ans yeah the river was like a constant barrage of corys surfacing, you can use and airstone or a powerhead some have a air siphon tube thingy, and which kind of algae were you fighting?

I'm fairly certain it was brown alge/diatoms I got a couple Otto cats and cut my light duration back. Think that's got it under control, there's still a little but it's not spreading like crazy anymore.

Mark if i had the room i would love some swords. I will still give you that water sprite though if you want it. Now if you had a couple cuttings of Rotalla rotundafolia i would make room for that. Just let me know i dont mind just giving you the sprite no trade needed. I just hate throwing away healthy plants that could be replanted.
