Comments

The tank is still not fully set up. The Susswassertang in the photo will not stay in this tank, it is visiting from another tank while I treat algae using Excel as I have read Subwassertang it doesn't do well with Excel. Hopefully my 3 female Bettas will get along in here, I am trying to plant densely so that they can hide from each other and avoid aggression, we'll see how it goes. I can't wait for the Blyxa and HM to fill in! I moved the Blyxa over to one corner because it was interrupting the water flow and I was getting scum on the surface. So far the water is able to flow enough that there is no scum, now I just need to work on the left corner...
