What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

Less co2 means less nutrient/light uptake by plants therefore algae utilize the extra light and nutrients. Very delicate balance indeed and doesn't take much to tip the balance scale. Algae always waiting for the slightest opportunity and doesn't need much to take hold.

Did a major trimming on the 20-long this afternoon. Happy to say I've got the algae problem mostly under control, not so happy to say I had to toss away some very nice Ludwigia trimmings. Wish I had a club nearby i could have taken them to. I took some pics that I'll post in an update to that tank's thread.

Barely saw the fish tonight. Fed and said hi. I have odd Gourami which swims in a circle upside down when he's eating or wants to take a look at something - always looks like it is dying for a second but it eats a pellet or dodges an Angelfish and it has been doing this for a couple years just freaks me out a little when I see a long ~5" wide fish swim upside down.

Kept seeing a small fish a fry growing larger, in the 72G thinking it was an accidental Platy fry (as in tank was only supposed to be male Platy), just realized it is a Rio Otappa Mexican Sword baby!!! Surprising it made it to over haf inch and now doesn't seem so afraid of the big Angelfish.

The other night I also saw 2 of the SAE doing a wiggle giggle tango dance next to the cave, not that I would ever expect a baby of theirs to survive but I am pretty sure they were doing a baby dance.

Saw them acting differently around the front of the tank and finally got over there and that was it, they didn't want any observations and went to the back of the tank. But cool to see.

Maxime can tell time. The air pump was minutes from starting when she moved over and waited. Hilarious.
