Thank you! She was open to the plants, as long as she got her spongebob stuff, lol. I'm using excel with Nilcog Macros, Flourish Trace , and Iron. Dosing Excel, Macros, and Micros twice a week, and Iron once. I bought the flourish stuff first before you guys told me about Nilcog, so when I use it all up, I'll start with the Nilcog micros since I bought the Macro/Micro combo kit. I know I should be dosing more often according to the instructions, but I didn't want to over do it, especially since we're hoping to colonize shrimp. I don't want to do something wrong and kill them all, lol. My daughter and I just found 14 babies in the tank, so I guess we're doing something right, although we did see 3 dead berried shrimp. Hopefully it's due to molting issues, and not something else. Water has been very stable, so I haven't tested it for a few days. I'll test it again tomorrow. I've also read that water changes promote molting which could be tough on berried shrimp, so I haven't done a water change in 2 weeks. I only have shrimp, with 6 otocinclus, so not much of a bio load in the 29 gallon.
