My aquatic family

Still getting to know how this forum works! But it's been about 2 months now and I'm in love with my tank!

Just had to exchange my beautiful male pearl gourami as he was extremely aggressive (I don't tolerate bad behaviour) and was seriously stressing out my other fish! The female seems much happier already and low and behold the Shrimp I had that I was sure was long gone resurfaced just hours after his removal, eating happily away at some algee on my drift wood!!

In exchange for Mr. A$$#0!# as I called him I got another Otto catfish and the skull decor which I think makes a great addition!! 😃

Tank life is good, water change is a couple days over due. Will take a bit more extra water then usual! Overall the fish and plants are happy!! This is after dinner time and the gouramis always get a bit combative, especially with their pappilas (did I spell that right?) Lol!

Reminds me of this Hydor product image from a few years back.
Looks like you are having fun!
I think a lot of us here forget fun is the goal. Keep it up.

Nice tank! Curious if you're dosing any fertilizers? You might want to look into them to boost your plant growth, assuming that thick luscious plants are your end goal.

I do dose with an all in one fert, and excel flourish. Thinking I may get some potassium as my saggiteria is getting some black spots and I've read its a low potassium that causes that!

I started this tank In February, so considering I think it's looking pretty good!! And I only started dosing ferts in mid March, there has been significant growth and trimming and replanting! The crypts all have at least 4 new leaves, I've had the fish for about two years now and I'm so happy I finally planted it!!

Added two new plants today! Baby dwarf tears and Monte Carlo! The Monte Carlo is a little tall but in a couple weeks once the roots have settled I'll give it a trim!
