New Fishies!

I brought home four new fish! I got three one-inch otocinclus, and a 4.25 inch whiptail catfish. I want more otos, although lately they have not been available. I had never planned on getting the whiptail, but after taking a look at it, I couldn't resist.

Something else I'd like to note is that on the hydrogliphia, all of the old leaves have been dying off, but fortunately its clear now that the plants are healthy because the new leaves are growly steadily and look good. I'm sure the old leaves died due to the transfer.

Whiptails are excellent at keeping algae off of the glass and they''re not rough on plants. My otos do well on the Omega One Veggie Rounds and the whiptail would probably like them also..

Here's a lil' update. I added 4 more otocinclus, bringing up the total to 7. Fortunately, no deaths so far, so I'm happy! The only thing I'm upset about is that the water has suddenly turned rather cloudy with a light green tone. I'm thinking it might be green water algae O_o. Not sure what to do, I've read it doesn't harm the fish but I don't like how it looks. Anyways, here's a picture. I finally got rid of the cave ornament thing, and added dwarf hairgrass (eleocharis parvula). I think it will fill in nicely in front of the wood :D

sorry for the bad quality of the image >_<
The two sword plants finally stopped shedding leaves, and the leaves are steadily becoming more sword shaped instead of being circular. I also recently added duckweed, which has had crazy growth! It already covers about 75% of the top, and needs to be cleared a bit already. All other plants have had modest growth, but look healthy to me.

Just as a note, the above image only shows part of the top of the aquarium.

Awesome! How green is the tint? My tank has a bit of a green tint, but that's because of all my floaters. Shove all your floaters to one side/see if the tint goes away on that side.

You may be correct FishyFishy89, because the green tint came in after I the duckweed spread out so much recently. It's hard to describe, but it's a fairly light green. Apart from the green, the water is also quite cloudy now too.
