hey guys, another update.
Sunlight Supply 2x24 watt retrofit T5HO
5 lb co2 tank with Milwaukee MA957 regulator
Red Sea Reactor 500
Dosing with Seachem ferts
Nymphaea Rubra (Red Water Lily)
Sagittaria Subulata (Dwarf Sagittaria)
Micranthemum umbrosum (Baby Tears)
Echinodorus isthmicus (Dwarf Amazon Sword)
Telanthera roseafolia (Red Scarlet Temple)
8 Cardinal Tetras
2 Albino Glowlight Tetras
4 Glowlight Tetras
2 Bloodfin Tetras
5 Harlequin Rasboras
well, I traded in the swordtails for 12 cardinal tetras. unfortunately the next day I started to see symptoms of ich on some of my cardinals... so I (stupidly) euthanized 4 of them because I didn't want it to spread to the rest of the tank. I'm dumb because it's going to spread anyway. Well, all of the cardinals have it now and I'm treating with Ich Attack. I'm on day 3 now and I'm seeing no improvement.
But none of my old fish have it (yet) so that's good.
I also got 2 new plants - the scarlet temple in the back left, and the cardinal plant in front of my driftwood on the right.
QUESTION - What is the green hairy algae growing to the right of the picture of my baby tears? I ripped a bunch of it out.. hmm.
Here are some updated pix:
