No flash duly noted: New pics coming soon..my notes -Hijacking my thread to become a journal. Feel free to give advice or comment etc.
1/22/05 - did a 33% water change, scrubbed the little green dots off the glass, didn't vacuum gravel this time cuz water never cleared up completly last time, and I want to see if It was me disturbing sand that made it cloudy. I removed some of the sand last time I changed water.
- plants are growing - Rotala is taking off and so is money wort, Ludwigia is growing slow, and Java ferns are sending out weird alien tenticles everwhere.
1/23/05 - Have added any micro's yet, still looking for local place to buy them.
Water isn't crystal clear, didn't disturb sand, only a little spot/brush algae on couple of the plants.....mixed up new C02
-lost my first fish, a male swordtail platy that never had all of his tail (he was always weaker anyway must be cuz he was missing his sword)
1/24/05 I have discovered I love Gouramis. I bought 4 beautiful blue (opalescent/pearly whatever) Gouramis. I don't know what the sexes are but I am sure there is 1 male (cuz he's beautiful and shows off his colors and struts his stuff) ok he acts like a dude-fish (hee hee) - also added 5 more Neon tetra's - I've never seen their color look so good as they do in my tank. The first ones I added have had a major color improvement, so now I have 12
I think I'm done now adding fish. I may add another Gourami or two if I find one I can't resist, I will probably get a female platy too.
Fish Inventory now: 2 Pleco's, 2 algae eaters, 12 Neon's, 2 black tetra's, 2 Buenes Aires Tetras, 3 Danios, 4 Blue Gouamis, 3 ghost shrimp, 1 black mystery snail, (1 immigant snail I might remove tonight), 1 male Swordtail Platy
