Thanks Russell and Kiara! I just ordered some anacharis (?) as well, to replace the Kyoto plants when they start dying off. It's sad they aren't aquatic because I love the look! I think I have some ribbon plants that may leaving as well. Ugh! :/ And yes, she is quite the chubs of a cat at 16.5 lbs. Though, with regular vet check-ups, she's healthy as a horse. :)

I had ribbon plant. I put the tips in the water and let the leaves stay on the top of the tank outside of the water [I didn't have a lid then]. I held them to the sides with rubberbands around them and attached to the corners of the tank. They grew quickly and then I just planted them, outside. They did amazingly well and fish water can really help plants.

Also, my cat, Whisper, is a chubby thing. Her brother is 8 lbs and she's god knows what. lol She's huge! xD

Randomness, I'm sorry, but I have to ... they were riled up on catnip and they were being weird, so I took a video. xD Whisper is the orange and white tabby and her brother, Harley, is the burnt orange manx. They are siblings and his tail was born all nubby. They're manx/maine coon mixes. :P Also, my mom had them declawed, so they're not hurting each other or anything.

xD That tank has been up and running for 5 years now. There's been soooo many different types of fish in that tank! It's so pretty though. I love staring at it and watching the fish.

I would suggest googling "one two punch" and algae. You will find a method that I have been very successful with. You will have to remove the fish to do it, but not for long. It should take care of what you have now. Then, if you reduce light and balance your fertilizer, and get a good clean up crew balance, you shouldn't have any more problems.
