Oh boy, last updated this, what ... 3 months ago?
This tank is still chugging along.
What to say, other than mweh.
I'm pretty pleased how the gigantic blyxa mass on the right side is coming out, but that's about it.
The DIY Co2 I had on there ran out like two months ago and I never bothered to replace it, and my lotus has suffered.
The entire left side in general is annoying me, plant's arn't growing in how I imagined, I realized I made some placement errors, and I think it might be time for a rescape soon. I'll probably fish the fish out and just pull up almost everything.
Oh, and my oto died, I went on vacation for a week, and my family didn't bother to top off the tank, I got back and the water line was 3" lower than normal, yeah.
The black background is back too (say that one three times fast), aaanndd, it promptly got covered in algae. The front too, it's plauged with some sort of weird dark green GSA that I can't wipe off. strange.
so overall, it's a mess.
SPEAKING OF MESSES, check out my horribly unlevel 5.5 gallon :D
You know the hilarious part? it's not even the stand that's unlevel, it's the entire house
. I'm going to move this eventually to a more level
stand, but for now, fingers crossed.
Anyway, I had this tank growing emersed for
4 or 5 months, and it finally got to the point where the plants just stopped growing and started melting. So I filled it up, and it's just been running like this now. the HM loves it. the glosso though, it hates me, only one plant in the entire forground even seems like it wants to carpet, the rest of it is just growing up, up, and away.
I need some trimming scissors, and another co2 reactor.
