Hah, if you could see my desk at work, you'd know this is not a good option I was honestly kinda worried about its' ability to support the 3.

I have a baby sword in QT at home, so in a week or so I'll see about pulling the current one and taking it to my big tank at home, and giving Chicory the smaller one. Time to replace the boat with something else anyway.

The algae is retreating, which makes it look much less dire/more open in the tank

(PS,I give the plants a shot of API leaf Zone with a water change every other week)

(PPS, I do water changes more frequently than every other week, it's just the Leaf Zone gets added once every other week)

Oh man, I hope my sword does that!!! It's medium sized and I have it in a corner of my 29g. It already has 2 new leaves in the two weeks it's been there, so that's exciting!

I've never heard of this Leaf Zone? I use Seachem Flourish complete, but have only used it once in the 2 weeks and I only added 1/3 the dose :X I do have Eco complete substrate though.

My otos really like hanging out on the big leaves :)
