Getting a nerite here either today or tomorrow to try and clean up the diatoms that have taken over my tank. He will be moved to the betta tank after he's done his job, but I can't see in the tank but enough to know the plants look dead they are so covered in algae. It's nasty. If the diatom problem persists for more than four months, I'll be adding the otos. It could be that the tank is new, but I have never had diatoms this bad. Maybe it's the lighting. The plants aren't exactly fast growing or stem plants so I think I'm going to have an algae issue. Hoping to add some Anubias here soon, just don't know where. May try to propagate the Crypts first. I need them to spread!! I can't seem to melt them for some reason so they should do good, haha. Also going to try some Excel here soon.
