For some reason algae pearling seems bad.

And I was suggesting the flag fish for temporary stock. They actually eat hair algae.

Weekly water change!

Alright, I'm embarrassed to admit this but want to post the video as something of a PSA. Up until today, I had been following Aqueon's directions on how to start the siphon, moving the cup back and forth in the water. There's a better way!

https://youtu.be/mfEBbjKK5xQ

Seriously I felt very silly for how difficult I made things for myself.

I took the two baby trapdoor snails out of the tank. I want to give them the absolute best chance of survival. I'm scouring the internet looking for insights but really at a loss. I do worry about the rams trying to eat them, so maybe I should move them to my smaller tank?

I had read somewhere about using quilting batting after a water change with sand, so I'm trying that. The 10 gallon is always great, but the sand in the 29 gallon feels like it will never settle.

the tiny computer is full of delicion!

Vacuum and PWC today. A little stumped about my stems losing the bottom leaves. I know it's due to not enough light. But the light hasn't changed since May? Oh well maybe stems aren't for me. Click image for larger version
