It only started growing like that in the last couple of months. For the first 4-5 months I could barely keep it alive. After I introduced CO2 (DIY) things started to take off. Slowly at first. Now I have runners in almost every direction.
I was thinking about possibly removing the other plants and going with only the dwarf sag to get that "prairie/grassland" look. With a few manzanita branches poking out above the plain. Idk.

Decided, after my multiple-month long struggle with black hair algae in my 30gallon, to tear it down and consolidate the fish and plants to my 50gallon. Planning on venturing into the saltwater world by the end of next week.

Today I began the construction of my refugium for my nano reef. I'm going to get enough of a pod population for a mandarin goby between feedings. (It's already trained to eat frozen mysis) Wish me luck!

Tank Clean out

Cleaned out the 16G bowfront - Went from this


To this



Then I added back some stems and Java Fern and Dwarf Vals

Captured and sorted about 70+ dwarf shrimp.

Moved the Bamboo Shrimp, Amano Shrimp.

Rainbow Blue Platy RBP family to 37G with their cousins and aunts and uncles.

The RBP fry appx 6 to snail jar and took out the snails.

White Cloud Mountain Minnow pair out and then back in again.

I didn't realize this would take ALL day!!!

My 12G Edge is even better today, the slime gel is gone about 95%, just a couple spots left.

The Snails in there are getting huge, lol - water has tannins (amber color) but the cloudiness is also almost gone, maybe when the rest of the slime is gone.

Found a sick looking a guppy momma, all the rest of the fish seem fine.

Thanks for listening!
