    I'm surprised water lettuce is illegal. I know there are some water ways out in the delta that are literally choked with water hyacinth. I saw it on the news. The boat could barely make it through. I do have water hyacinth but they don't do so well in tanks. It's working wonders in the koi pond though.

    Oh yeah. :( No more floating plants. What I put in the koi pond got eaten and the ones in the sorority are struggling in the poor light.

    I might be tearing it down within the next week or so, actually. I'm going to my LFS in a few hours and depending on what advice they have for the snails and algae problem, I could tear it down sometime this weekend. They just got over a small bout of ich, though. :/ I could ship them, sure but I can also see if I can make it to Fremont.

    Only about 2" so they'll be betta sized. The only thing would be if they started spawning they might get aggressive. They probably won't unless you actually condition them however..
    How are your girls? Are they peaceful?

    Oh yes! It's extremely adaptable, but you have alkaline water right? They'd love that.

    Hah, still haven't gotten those amanos yet?
    You know if you want something to eat hair algae, American flag fish is a popular choice.. however some people don't think it's pretty (I think it's a good looking fish). Something a little more out there, and sort of blue ish if you don't find those blue platies. ;)

    Yeah. But the replacements for the Fluval, even with Amazon Prime, are still outrageous. o.O Crazy. Hey, if I tear the tank down, would you be interested in 10 rummynose tetras?

    Hey man, I can't tell you which fish you like more! :p
    The platies will probably eat the algae, but don't count on it and not a lot of it either.
    I do like rummies however!

    Oh my gosh so sorry I forgot to reply!
    You have 4 girls, yes?
    I'd probably do 5-6 platy ladies, likewise 5-6 cherry barbs. I like the barbs more myself, but with the platies you could get a few different colours in there. Just remember that all the girls will probably be pregnant when you get them and could be giving birth for a few months, so you'd have to try and keep that under control!

    I plan on moving the filters with the fish so the bacteria in those will be safe. I think it'll kill snails (says to remove invertebrates) but I'm not sure about bacteria. I know chemicals are generally frowned upon. This is a last resort for me. I have nowhere to put a C02 system by the 20gal, the way it's situated on my dresser. :(
