I have a current USA satellite LED+ over it. I should get around 40 PAR on the substrate level.

It took about half an hour - the benefit of doing dry start method though is that you don't necessarily have to get them totally secure in the substrate. It would have been way worse had I tried to plant them with water in the tank.

Yeah I've never done the dry start method before. I hope it works out well for you!

Just fed the fish today. Wondering when I can add the fry into the parents' tank because she is getting big!

Big day. Did monthly canister filter cleaning. Mixed up yeast for another week of CO2. Weekly PWC. Cleaned algae off of rocks for the first time ever. It just didn't look nice any more. Used H2O2. It was a very fizzy experience. Now I'm just watching the fish. The lights are off but the room is bright so the viewing is still good.

Wow! That's a busy day. Yeah algae can look pretty for a while until it gets out of control. My tank is getting to that point, I'll have to clean it out soon as well.

Lol, there'll always be more algae. At least cleaning it is a labor of love and rewarding when the job is done!

H2O2 will make things fizz and raise the O2 levels so much so that the plants will pearling like crazy. I use it spot treat BBA.
Last night I replanted a bunch of Pogostemon erectus that were uprooted. I did not notice the baseball size gap along the back wall of plants. The pogo er were attached to the same stem which had started to rot. I separated the stems and planted them individually. I found a small blob of what looks like pond snail eggs on one of the stems. I removed it. There are probably more in there. That's fine.

After a 6month hiatus because of medical and job related junk, I'm back. I upgraded my 36 to a 65 gallon discus tank, and bought a 120 gallon for my loaches and angels. Just have to let the plants fill in, and buy some more fish and plants to play with. Work in progress pics:
