Everything is going well for now.
5g. Chinese evergreen roots are growing really fast now and the leaf is slowly slowly growing.
Still lots of brown algae, but that's ok
Phish is doing great. Wants to eat ALL the time and isn't shy 1 bit. He's so beefy and he's coloring up even more
Sweet potato is slowly growing back.
I may have to remove the actual potato soon. The skin on it is starting to peel and look a bit gross. The vines should be ok though. Going to let it grow back a bit more and will eventually snip the vines off and throw the potato away. Will be a shame, but it's been a good experiment
Tank itself still having some issues with algae. A lot of stuff is getting caught on all the stem stuff. Not sure why w/ 3 HOB filters on here. I'm just gonna have to face it.. this tank is never going to be pretty. It's always going to look like a swamp and that's ok lol
125 is doing fairly well even w/ all the BBA all over the place.
Some of the areas that were completely out of the water that I sprayed are red/dying, but none of the spots that I sprayed that were under the water or even slightly in the water that I sprayed were affected at all lol. Meh. Oh well. So that stuff kind of worked
Looking a bit overcrowded, but it's all good.
The tiger lotus is doing amazing. Has 2 floating leaves and a whole bunch of bottom ones.
The lace plant behind it has also gotten 2 or so more leaves too. Difficult to spot new growth on it.
This lotus plant... love it. LOVE IT. I will be getting another for a new tank. It's an absolutely lovely plant.
The tiger barbs like hanging out under the leaves of this one now.
Whenever we decide to start moving exercise equipment out of the room... I'm going to get our old 29g bow front and redo the silicone. It's been up in our attic for years now and it's at least 12yo now. It needs to be done. I have plenty of plants to go in to it. Substrate will be a mix of eco complete and a different plant substrate. One of those ones where it looks like pellets maybe? I don't think I'll ever do just sand again. I dunno what people are doing in their sand tanks to get their plants to grow so well, but it is not working for me.
