move your cursor over the like button and it should pull of the emoticonsSorry I liked this, I wanted to do a sad reaction but I couldn’t figure it out. I hope they get better soon.
Aw thank you! This made me smileI know your fish will get better marmaa!
You are a great fishkeeper! Think of this like a trial or test you have to pass to become an even greater fish keeper.
Praying for your fish!
thank you so much! I appreciate it I also said the same about the wood piece as well but for now theyll have to sit in a bucket. In the meantime Im gonna get some new fish to quarantine since I need to wait to redose the meds again. killing 2 birds with one stone (insert winky face)Still looks good, the wood makes it look great though! You have been doing an awesome job with this tank, its beautiful, you put a lot of time and effort into it and it shows.
i love you angel fish his little black face is adorableSorry for not updating sooner. I was a bit busy with work and school. I am almost done with highschool now but the end is always hectic.
Anyways, the angel and 2 honeys have been moved into the 40g tank after being quarantined for almost 5 weeks. I also bought a nerite snail today and hes been added into the 40g tank. Plants have grown in especially the rotala rotundafolia and I added in some bacopa thats doing very well. Some of the slower growing plants are getting bba again and green thread algae. Im hoping that the more the plants grow the faster they can beat the algae. Frogbit has took off in the tank as well. Nitrates sit at around 20ppm which lesser than before. Plants seem to be eating nitrates up nicely.
Here are some new pics of the tank.

you gotta get parents that are into the hobby lol, my dad was the one who wanted to put my first tank in my room a 55g planted and then he let me setup out old 29g next to his 180g tankThats cool!
Wish my mom let me have a 40g fish tank in the living room...
I'm restricted to my room for now V_V
I agree, he/she (still young) is very cute and so far extremely nice with all my shrimp and other fish. Hope they stay like that!i love you angel fish his little black face is adorable
Thank you) Can I break the plant in thirds or halves and plant them separately? Its all connected to one root system as of now and I didnt know how to split them? Can I also propagate by cutting the tops and planting?Looks fantastic, marmaaa! It will surely be a showstopper once those plants fill in!
I did not do this amazing setup silly! You were the one that redid the tank from scratch. Give yourself much more credit, you deserve it!
As for the plant in the back, it looks to be Water Sprite and not Water Wisteria. No matter though, both plants are great background decor and easy to care for. It should fill in nicely. You may even want to separate some of the stems and spread it across the back so it spreads easier.
You can cut stems into sections and plant them in the substrate. The plant will also form baby plants along the stems that you can break off as well. Encouraging the Water Sprite to spread by cutting those mature stems will encourage more growth.Thank you) Can I break the plant in thirds or halves and plant them separately?

Certainly not a color we see on angels in my area too often....don't know the names/patterns, but they all look black and white to me around here.Thank you!! That angel is a whole dog trapped in a fish! I love her sm she's a fiesty one
Oh wow, colors like that are actually pretty common in my area, we do have the black and whites but the cream/orange is quite popular here. I actually got her from my Petco that has a good fish selection!Certainly not a color we see on angels in my area too often....don't know the names/patterns, but they all look black and white to me around here.
Maybe thats why...i don't often look at the fish when i go to Petco...thats usually a strictly fish/cat/gecko supply run!! I spend more time looking at the turtles and chinchillas than anything...lolOh wow, colors like that are actually pretty common in my area, we do have the black and whites but the cream/orange is quite popular here.

my parents said that 3 tanks ago lolThe amount of convincing I had to do to with my mom was a lot lol. I had my dad on board but my mom grew to like it now. But they said this is my last tank lol. We will see about that.
Sorry. Slight error. Epsom salt is indeed a salt. A salt is a chemical compound of anions (positive charge) and cations (negative charge). Salts disassociate in to free ions both + and -.Please do not get duckweed. Well, I will say is once you have it, it is so hard to get rid of. Thought I had it in only 2 tanks in my fish room and was happy it was disappearing. Now it's back in 7 tanks. I removed it all again, so hoping it is gone, but I never really know. I have crypts in my 40 breeder and they look sweet in the mid foreground of my tank. Dwarf hair grass is great, but mine always needed CO2 to thrive.
Here's what I would do. I would move filter to 40 with current plants and fish. You can even have tank set up with a few more plants that are new if you like. Be careful though as dying plant matter can cause issues with water quality and there's almost always die off when you get plants from the store. They are usually emersed and need to go to submerged growth. If you only have one filter, I'd buy a small sponge filter and put it in the 40 for a few weeks with a all air pump so you can then out it in the 20g and use as quarantine tank. Definitely do not want to kill your current fish with new ones when it can be avoided. Once they have passed through quarantine, you can move them to the new tank slowly so you don't overwhelm your current bio load. Root tabs work wonders for me as does making my own liquid fertilizers from powder fertilizers I get in 1lb. bags. Macros one day micros and iron the next. Then on 7th day I skip and add equilibrium. I may also add epsom salt if I see holes in leaves as that's usually a magnesium deficiency and epsom salt is magnesium not a salt. Works wonders by the time the new growth starts on plants.
As far as fish goes, I just know you don't want fin nippers for angel fish so if the fish leave angel fish alone you're good. Corydoras and plecos get along well in my experience. Don't get a common pleco, but maybe some kind of bristlenose so that it stays at 3-4 inches in length full grown.
I sure hope this helps!!
