They are doing well. Still have just three. I added some water lettuce the other day. The pond snails are pretty much gone, so the assassin snail will be moved back to the 15g soon. I probably won't be buying any more red cherry shrimp until January. I need to start doing some Christmas shopping ( we haven't done any yet 😬 lol) . I haven't figured out a way to get the really old algae off of the front. I think I'm going to have to buy an acrylic scrubber pad.

For the really stubborn algae that the algae magnet does not remove, I sometime just grab the inner magnet scrubber and manually scrub the glass (in the tank).

I've had good luck with RCS purchased from AA members.

Yeah and it's a bow front, so I can't use regular magnet scrubbers. :/

I have bow front and bought a tall narrow magnetic scrubber. If kept vertically at all times it follows the contours of the glass and works well. Turn it horizontal and the magnet tends to fall off.
