Well, I am happy to report that after a weekend away, instead of a disaster, I came home to find my tank looking quite lovely. The very crooked (tallest) wisteria on the right has straightened out nicely, some of the other wisteria plants appear to have grown a bit, and the cabombas have straightened out and grown as well! All three Otos are frolicking around the tank and the betta is doing his thing
Finally, i can breath a little easier about this tank as it seems to be stable. (the mini-cycle is also over, back to 0 ammonia and nitrIte, ~10 nitrAte
20gH Planted tank, 5g Planted tank
1 Crested gecko who has a 60g Hex paludarium in the works
2 Dogs, Leo an 11 year old Bichon/poodle mix, and Cody, a 3 year old Poodle.
I enjoy having a zoo to care for!
