first this was recorded with my phone so a tripod isn't an option... next time take some pepto with you too...
That orange thing you saw was a "flame tetra" Hyphessobrycon Flammeus.
The tank has been running since february
I just bought some "Glossostigma" Glossostigma elatinoides. I am going to try and grow it in as a ground cover on the right side.
Right now I am only running 130 watts so I can get some algae growth under control so that is why the vid looks a little dark.
