Hey Its been about 3 months since i got my aquarium going and aside from a couple hiccups is doing awesome. My current stock is as follows:
8 Black phantom tetra 2 males and 6 females
5 angels 3 mixed color/marble and 2 blue black.
1 dwarf gourami (red flame morph) his name is Red
I had another it was a powder blue named Blue. I think it got dropsy. Was pinecone shaped and soon after died i did several 40% water changes for a week and had no ammonia or nitrate and very little nitrite, so i think it was a bacteria problem and i do believe because they are inbreed so bad his immune system was compromised. I hope now Red will be ok. ANY INPUT ON THIS MATTER IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.
1 Colombian zebra pleco
Anyway i have some plants as well:
1 melon sword.
All of my plants are doing very well and my melon sword and anubias plants have doubled in size if not tripled. I seem to be getting 1-2 leaves on the melon every week and a set on the wisteria in about the same time. The anubias is slower as expected but is doing really well.
I'm want to get an amazon sword which i plan on getting soon and/or a brazilain pennywort plant if i can find one in the pittsburgh area (wink wink) so if anyone is selling send me a PM.
Another thing is I got green dot algae and I reduced light from 12 hrs to 7 hrs. I was wondering if turning heat up or down would help or is their any other ways short using a razor or something to scrub the walls with.
