Hello and welcome everyone. I'm very excited to be starting my aquarium. I've started this journal as a resource to view my tanks progression over time.
I'm almost brand new to the fish keeping hobby. This is my first tank and it's been up and running for almost 2 months. Today's the first day the C02 system has been running. I'm looking forward to seeing the plant growth.

Bolivian ram is recovering from internal parasites. 1 week after getting him he stopped eating and seemed to be about to die. White stringy poop. Treated whole tank with general cure and he is making a great recovery (treatment ended 2 days ago).
Algae growth is annoying. Glass needs a scrub every 4 days or so.
Angels keep ripping out all the dwarf sag I planted!!
