These pics are as of yesterday. Still no sign of the cycle starting. Iíll test the water tomorrow and see if the Prodibio made any difference yet.

The wood is about 80% covered with this gross white, hairy slime and has been for just over a week. I understand it goes away in time so Iím not concerned. I actually find it kind of fascinating.

The rotala was just floating until I noticed a bunch of roots sticking out of the stalks the other day. I decided to plant them.
