Well new light in tank

Trying to put some harlequin tetra into tank but we've been on 6 hours now trying to equalise pH.

7 hours gone and had to make the decision pH was close enough to transfer the fish.

Fingers crossed.

Red face

Day 11

10% water change and filter cleaned. I'm going to have to have a look at my filter media. I have a three layered cartridge consisting of a course pad a medium pad and fine filter wool. The fine filter wool seemed very clogged, I might have to got to a fine pad instead or maybe just throw away the filter wool each time I clean the filter.

All my fish are now across and into the new tank. It's nice to watch them swim around.

Aqua advisor says I'm over stocked but that will be because of the 2 bristle nose plecs. We'll keep these till they reach about 4 inches then take them back and get two more small ones.

Stock
5 neon tetras
5 lemon tetras
5 harlequin rasbora
3 otocinclus
2 bristle nose plecs

And our centerpiece fish
1 imperial blue dwarf gourami
1 dwarf yellow puffer (varying reports if it misbehaves it will be gone)

4 Yamato shrimp
2 snails.

Feeding
Tetra prime
Algae flakes (for night use, not used yet as algae still being cleaned in tank)
Another pellet feed slow sinking.
Treats
Blood worm
Daphnia

I still have some algae on the plants and the bog wood but the algae eaters are on the job.

I have sorted the CO2 delivery system (I think).

So all in all things are looking good. Some pics to follow.

Oh yeah and the user. Called "the wife" is my wife, I'll have to behave now lol.

Day 12

The thread was working really well keeping the moss on my bog wood until the bristle noses decided they'd eat it off.

Looks like I'm gona have to get some more moss and some fishing line to tie it on again.

But apart from that it's all going well in the tank. Fish are enjoying there freedom.
