I started with 2 indoors, one in the cichlid tank and one in the discus tank. The cichlids have eaten most of the roots so I still have one in the cichlid tank but I have 5 in the discus tank

Edit: I just did a 25% water change as well. Trying to clear out algaefix and get ammonia down so I can put my snail back. Plus I am doing a water change on the snails bowl.

Is the lighter color water lettuce with more light or less light than the other?

Also sorry to hear about the fry.

Thinking about tanks again. My last light bulb went out on the original 6.6G Edge day before yesterday sometime and I forgot about it til last night. So I need to get a light on it and have to go looking for the Stingray I got at the last CAS Auction to supplement till I order a new light bar - maybe tomorrow.

Scoop out LS from the SW tank (and empty anything rocks and shells, etc, thats left) which has been sitting evaporating for a month for the CAS mini auction at the meeting.

Wow, I can't believe how many shells the little Pistol Shrimp had in his lair when he was in that tank!!! I have a cup full! - Not even done getting all of them out yet! Had an interuption.

I'm wondering if he ate the inhabitants or they were hanging out there for the free food???

The water lettuce in the discus tank is under the higher lighting, a 24/7 Finnex Planted LED light while the water lettuce in the cichlid tank is under a reef light (I'll have to look up what kind)
