I'm eagerly awaiting signs of growth from my new plants. I decided to go for broke with my lighting. I set up my quad t5HO over my favourite tank. Swapping from a dual t5 to the quad is a bit of a game of Russian roulette with algae, but I mounted the quad setup 6 inches above the waterline. My last light was sitting directly on the tank. Hopefully the light level doesn't cause a nasty algae bloom.

I added some AR mini and HC in the foreground through the week. The AR mini has been a slight pain to keep planted but I'm hopeful that it's about ready to start growing. The plants I've replanted have good signs of root growth after a few days. The HC has been easier. I just tied clumps to some flat rocks. I've tried HC before when I was running less light. It died a creeping death. Hopefully all my plants establish this time. I hate it when I can't make a plant thrive.

The school of endler guppies has settled in well. I love having one species with so much variety in their coloration. If these guys don't breed for me I think I'll give up any hope of breeding fish.

Tested the water. All good but nitrates are a bit up still. Vacuumed and PWC 30%. Removed plastic bioballs and added Biohome ultimate. Will be swapping out funky ceramic rings for Biohome over the next month. If these rings have a single pore in them I can see it.

More PWC's Nitrates are up post WC on my little tank. The big one needs to get it's cycle on so I can start moving fish over.

I added water to 46gallon to start the cycle process. Also sat on the patio and made a few more plants and mounted 3 more peices of driftwood. Click image for larger version

While doing a big trim of floating leaves to enable me to feed my guies better I spotted some fry. I bought endler guppies because I wanted something that v would breed and finally it's happened. Biggest one ib saw was about 4mm long. Some tank watching seems to be in order for this afternoon.
