Noticed a few issues, with the macroalgae blanching at the ends.

Pom Pom Crabs each lost one of their 2 "poms poms" the tiny anemones. Took a pic. The one which is a tad larger looks like it already snipped a chunk off of its other anemone to make 2, and it will grow bigger eventually.

One of my Rock Flower Anemones moved about 4 inches away from the center area/light.

Saw an Anemone Shrimp molt stuck in the Chaetomorpha algae.

Had an extra amount of algae speckles /dots on the glass - weird.

Haven't really had time to search the tiny areas and see how the Pods population survived, and the tiny feather dusters, and some other little things.

My cute little Yellow Clown Goby s looking okay as far as I can tell. Was hungry this morning so I take that as a good sign.

Maybe okay - a cautious okay ?

I did a water change, accidentally uprooted half of my fake plants, and ended up rescaping the entire thing because I couldn't remember where everything went. I HATE it now! I'll have to fix it soon before it drives me crazy lol.

The CO2 is still doing nicely, settled in at 1 bubble per second. This weekend I'm going to experiment with turning it up to 2BPS, since the drop checker has yet to go green.

Unfortunately, just as I finally get CO2, I seem to have lost my battle to save my alternanthera reineckii: I found the main bunch of stems floating (stem rot) and the lower leaves were so covered in green fuzz algae that it wasn't worth trying to save the algae-free tips. I blame the lack of CO2 over the last year.

But, I shall not give up: I *will* have prospering red plants.

I have way too much AR. Give me a couple of weeks and I can send you some trimmings. Haha

Water tests yesterday. I'm definitely realizing the benefits of dosing micro and macro fertilizers separately. I don't want to add my everything fertilizer when nitrates are around 40, but I still want to add other nutrients.

I trimmed all of the java fern in the Spec back to rhizomes. It was blocking light to the rotala, and some of the leaves were getting raggedy. I put the leaves in water in case any of the ramshorn eggs are still viable.

We have two guppy fry in the community with super black tails. I'm glad to see that the population isn't exploding all over the place, and I may actually be able to sell any of the Moscow blacks.

Speaking of babies, I found a pea puffer egg in the Ponyo tank. The prospect of puffer fry makes me giddy.

It can be hard to find fish in that tank now that the plants have grown in so thoroughly. I think that's mostly a good problem, although I do like doing headcounts.

I'm a busy busy fish Mama...

Did a big water change today: aprox 50% because nitrites spiked. I've been dosing with 5x SeaChem Prime because ammonia and nitrites are never solidly at zero. Which is disappointing, seeing as I moved EVERYTHING solid from one tank to the new one, and being completely cycled still seems to be a problem.

Sponge covers for filter intakes arrives in the mail today!
Big batch of elodea and marimo moss balls arrived yesterday.
Along with the two pieces of driftwood in the tank, I think it looks lovely, though I know it's a basic tank.

I don't feel ready to take on a planted tank, but for now, my goldie has an interesting world to live in! which makes me very happy

Gotta go get more Prime, and some Stability from LFS tomorrow...

Use Safe instead of Prime. Much less expensive.
