I finally tied down my java moss. XD




Called my LFS and their supplier won't be shipping any duckweed, amazon frogbit, or red root floaters until spring. >.< And they're not sure if they'll be able to get more wisteria, but he said he'd try. Very nice guy. I think it might've been the same older man I talked to before in the store.
They'll be getting the new shipments in on Friday so I'll be stopping by and checking them out. c:

Yay! Ammonia has gone down to 1.0 ppm! XD pH 7.6, Nitrites 0, and Nitrates are 10 ppm.

Thanks! :D

Wow, I haven't posted here in a while. I'll have new pics up later today! ^^ The plants are really filling in. Ammonia is down to 0, nitrites have risen to 2ppm (trying to get those down now), and nitrates are at about 20ppm. And I found out that my anacharis is the narrow leaf elodea that like to root. ^^ I'm having some trouble with algae, even though the nerite is working hard since I put him back in. :/ I'm not well versed on the different algaes so I'll take some pics and post those too. And I think my cyperus helferi is dying. XP Just a few though. I've seen a couple of runner on the ones that are doing well.

NOW:




The algae. What kind is it? Is there someway to get rid of it? It comes off my plants easy enough, but it's on my sand too! DX



Daniel enjoying the new setup. (I put him since ammonia has been staying at 0. Is that okay? I'm at the nitrite stage of the cycle and I've been keeping it down to about 1 ppm now.)



And last but certainly not least, Gallifrey. ^^ My 5 gallon broke and my 3 gallon somehow got a crack in it, so he's in a coffeepot. XP (It's all I had on hand!) But I'm stopping by PetSmart today to pick up a 2 gallon.

LOL! XD I had been using it to transfer new water from the bucket to the 10 gallon. But, hey, you do what you gotta do right? ;D Gallifrey doesn't seem to mind too much. In fact, I think he's colored up more than when he was in the 3G. Which I find weird. XD

Thanks! :D I'm really happy with the plants. ^.^ Especially since they discovered the potting mix. XD The sword has been sprouting new leaves and growing like crazy.

While at PetSmart picking up a birthday present for my kid sister's dog and a 2 gallon for Gallifrey, I just HAD to stop and drool over the new shipment of bettas. Oh. My. GOSH! They were all absolutely stunning! Lol, you shoukdve heard me and my sis ooing and ahhing over them. XD There was a delta marble in particular that I am in LOVE with. And several dragonscales. X3 And the females! :o They had some really awesome females too! I was so surprised at the colors in this shipment! Most of the good finds are in Owensboro, not that many here.
