Day 2...
I moved and trimmed some plants. http://i1172.photobucket.com/albums/...psiaboslet.jpg I dosed 20ml today. Not too much difference. The wisteria has runners or crowns not sure what they're called with this plant. http://i1172.photobucket.com/albums/...psusexlp3n.jpg

I see a big problem with the beginning of this tank starting. I ran 4 t5ho on my 55g tank for a while and there's no way at all my plants would have been happy with "occasional liquid ferts" I would highly suggest upgrading to daily dry ferts to keep the algae demons at bay. I would also suggest investing in some more plants so they will out compete any algae that does start to grow.

Part of it is wisteria. But yes I have gotten two very small crowns off of the two I got from you. So glad the plants are coming back to life. I just went from the first picture to now, and wow.

Yah, they went out in rough shape so I'd say you're certainly doing something right!

Yea, the one pair seems to to raise the babies all the way up to day 3 free swimming and then they disappear. Other tank mates must be eating them. Yesterday I took their wigglers out and put them in a 10g. Literally the day after they had laid eggs again.
