Looking after a friends 3 dwarf chain loaches temporarily while she moves and redoes her tank. They are cute little guys! Shame they won't be sticking around. Water parameters still good too, which is excellent!

Plants are doing okay mostly (the only problems I am seeing is the dwarf sag is getting a touch yellow; would this be light or some other issue?), though I am having a combo minor algae issue on some leaves, along with a lot of "dust" clinging to them as well as roots and shoots. The algae isn't a biggie and the MTS are slowly taking care of it but the dust is a bigger problem, I'm guessing coming from the substrate. Can this dust stuff smother plants? All the plants are rooted now, and taking them up to wash them will only make more dust lol, so I'm not sure how to combat it.

Another betta is still on the waiting list.
