Thanks for the welcome back; it feels good to do something again. I forgot to write about Co2. See, I had the best of intentions and was saving up for a pressurized system from Green Leaf Aquariums before things went south. I was using a DIY Co2, two rotational bottle system along with Seachem Flourish Excel until I could order the pressurized system. I just began daily dosing of Excel again along with GLAís EI dry ferts after I siphoned most of the detritus and mulm last weekend. I should be able to afford the pressurized Co2 with my next paycheck. I did mention Discus. I didnít intend to keep Discus in this tank, as all my research has indicated no smaller than 55 gallon would do. One of my coworkers had a friend who kept four Discus in his 35 gallon hexagon for 3 Years. They were obviously stunted, but seemed ok health wise. He had started with a shoal of five, but lost one in the first month and never replaced it. My coworker asked me if Iíd take them because his friend was moving and he couldnít find anyone else besides a LFS which is a death trap for fish. So I agreed to give them a try, thinking I may also set up a 75 gallon for them. Although I knew my setup wasnít ideal, it was an improvement over their old home and the guy was running out of time. He gave them to me for free. I did lose one over the summer, and another is emaciated and rough looking. So here are my unintended aquatic friends, and yes, I name my fish...so bear with me...this first photo is Gandalf The Grey begging for his pellets, 2nd pic is Bilbo Baggins, and 3rd is Galadriel looking less than majestic.
