Leak tested and cleaned the 29g I bought yesterday. Woke up to a full tank of water on the porch also cleaned up/did a close inspection of the stand. They did some strengthening modifications with some boards. Overall, not too bad.

Did a full round of water tests. Nitrates are still 0 but so is nitrite and ammonia. Guess the plants are using the nitrogen in the tank as quickly as it is produced. Time to move to weekly testing. Added Excel. Fed fish and enjoyed watching them eat. Noted how beautifully clear the water is and how healthy and active the fish look. Plants are growing like crazy. Noted a little brown algae on a few ruffle sword leaves that wont go away. Noted a little fungus on the driftwood. Life is good.

Yesterday I observed some white fungus growing on my driftwood. Last night I observed one of my pristella tetras picking at it. This morning it was all gone. Must have been yummy. Other than noting the disappearing fungus, I just observed my fish and the new leaf on my ruffle sword that grew another couple of inches today.

You know what they say: Too many keepers spoil the stocking. Good luck with rehoming.

Depending on what I can pick up at the $1/gal sale this week I might be interested in the cories and/or angels. I'm only in Hammond - not too far away. Are the angels a pair?

I added bettafix to my 3G with my Betta and continued on day 3 of calming my nitrite spike in my 10g freshwater aquarium.
