Here's the first photo of me setting it up with the driftwood, measuring space:
Photo about a day after planting:
Same day after planting a little further back for perspective:
This was today, about 2.5 weeks in:
I feel like it's growing, but algae is popping up everywhere. I tried dropping two shrimp in about a week ago, stupid me I didn't really check water values... they didn't make it.
So... I don't really have any clue as to what I'm doing. Co2 has no bubble gauge, I turn it until the bubbles come out at an OK rate. I turn it off every night, unless I forget and leave it on. Light is about 8-10hr/day. I dose with a tiny bit of seachem every day to every other day.
Am I doing this right? What's going to happen next? How should I treat this algae? I don't want to put more shrimp in to have them die because I don't monitor water values at all.
I was pretty worried that the wood was going to be too big to let anything grow, and just too big for the tank. I did move the sword from the rear to the front.
