Cardinals and Weitzmani Tetra

Day 3

Hello guys!

So here is an update.....

I got 15 Cardinals they are super tiny as well as the Weitzmani Tetra. I could get the Weitzmani Tetra picture becuase they like to hide in the wood, but I would keep trying....

Unfortunately, GBA is back ... I'm going to try the
Erythromycin method and hopefully would go away..

Any advise that I should be aware? Also please leave some comments...

Here are the pics.....








Here are the Cardinals look how small they are.....



Compare with the Rummies at the back


Some random shoots!






Thanks for looking.........

Short photo period = don't run the lights a long time. You have a lot of light. Four hours to start.

Thanks..I knew that. But why cutting off on hours? It's because the algae or for the plants?

Thanks again....

you don't have enough plant mass. 260watts is alot of light. start wit 130 watts
for 4hrs until you have enough plants. If the plants look like the arn't doing well then add a 1hr noon burst with all 4 bulbs. this way you have a greater chance of avoiding algae.
