As Homedog said, a maybe a bad move buying a bristlenose.. BUT, I have Ottos coming in, and asked about the amano shrimps. If by Saturday, no shrimps, i will be begging on here.
I want a bigger tank ultimately.. I understand a smaller tank is harder to maintain.

You're entering a nitrite spike. Keep levels down with water changes, and in a week or so you'll be back in business!

Thank you homedog! x
I seem to get one thing sorted, and another problem starts lately!
I thought I was over-feeding, so cut that down.. I also only did a water-change 3 days ago, and have checked all my levels every morn and eve.. can't believe how nitrates stabilised, then nitrites started going up.. : /

Homedog, Andresdeo,
I have got 2 Ottos today..(Yay!) Am waiting on the Shrimp.
I DID get another Plec,(A Bristlenose.)
The Ottos will be fine with him I got told. The Ottos are settling in now. : ) Plec moved in @ 14 days ago. went a little pale, but coloring up again now I hope.
Got an all in-one test kit. Seems to do the job..-eSHa- is the brand-name??
Please advise me if it is not good enough. xxx

Still waiting on the Amano shrimps.. My supplier is amused that I am using "American" names! lol! Otto's and Bettas and amano shrimps!! Ottos being the Latin name. Bettas I asked about, and he was impressed, as that is the "proper" name apparently.. (Not bad for you Americans, huh!! Lol!!)
