Shifted the swords and a few other plants slightly further back as they were getting trampled at feeding time at front of tank. Fingers crossed. They looked ok at getting going, so if too damaged I think I will try some more. The rest of the new plants are staying planted which is always a bonus

A bn catfish turned up that I hadn't seen for a few weeks. Was starting to think I might have lost it but must of been hiding away. No young ones turning up though either.

Still waiting on the rest of the CO2 gear to turn up but I'm thinking I'll have to prune the centre back of the tank next and thin it out a bit. I actually did some pruning on the weekend but I really need the ladder to reach the middle.

I'm really liking The display in this tank especially the way the plants are built up in the middle, not to mention the fish. where most people switch from freshwater to salt this is making me want to switch back from Salt to fresh

Thanks for the replies I must admit little algae still and I love that I can cheerfully cut off any bits of the fast-growing stem plants that look bad and know that it will grow back within a week or two.

The congo tetras are going great. I always worry with the fish vs dosing plant ferts but they are doing well.

The UK CO2 line splitter turned up from the UK. Exciting night.....

Check fits CO2 line - tick

Check fits onto existing fittings - tick

Turn on - gas leak

Re-check packet, find o-ring and better seal results - tick

Turn on properly - main valve now leaks

Fiddle around with o-ring and re-seat, try once more and all good

Now to setup the second CO2 reactor some time

I think so (fingers crossed). Now I just need to get the second line going on the weekend and should get more co2 into the far side of the tank (I hope).

Sounds great.. Nothing better than making some improvements to your tanks over a weekend. Good excuse for a well deserved beer (Voddie for me) at the end of it.. Am I right?! Lol
