Hmm... it's a bit too small to be able to tell which one it is... oh well...

I'm back, but there isn't much news...
I've suddenly realized how much my java moss has grown, so I may try to trI'm it out and possibly sell it. Another weird thing about it is that my "kribs" have made a little space in it that they spend their time in it, which I think is funny...

Due to my swords and Apongeton not doing great, I'm trying out Flourish Root Tabs. I've used one for them and I'm also trying one out near my Red Crypts and Bulb...

Thanks a lot!
and it does? how can you tell?

Well its about time for my next post.
Well the tank has been doing well, I've started dosing Flourish Excel every day, and I think that has been helpful, because I have started to notice less and less of the staghorn algae! Also, thanks to this and the root tabs, my lillies are growing huge!
Today, I just did a water change and tried to clean up the tank as much as possible. I never realized how much hornwort was still left! Now the tank looks a little empty, so I'm hoping that the ferts should help it to fill up some more.
Unfortunately, there was some bad news for the tank. A few days ago, my larger angel bullied my other angel to death. I'm not exactly sure why, but we will miss the angel a lot. I will attach the most recent pictures of him too.

Okay, so that's it, thanks for reading!

I haven't had much time to post, due to school ending, but finally I'm done. Just one piece of news.
I went to my fish club meeting this thursday, and was lucky enough to get 3 bandit cories, which I'm very happy about. I got a few pictures, but they've been so active, swimming all around my tank.

Okay, back to the tank for another post, not much has happened, I tried to do a water change and suck up the poo from the gravel, which didn't turn out too well. My java moss has grown so much that it all got caught in the siphon, pulling some off and pulling all of the moss on the piece of driftwood off. I have also noticed my tank getting a little cloudy, I don't know why, but the fish don't care so I'm fine.

Also, now, since I'm done getting my 2nd fish tank ready (you can read the other thread for that), I am thinking about trying DIY Co2, a member of my fish club has been very helpful, and I think I can probably do it. I am going to try to start that as soon as my dad lets me.

Well, that's about it. Bye!
