I went to Las Vegas for a vacation last Sunday and only just came back today...
I did observe a few changes... good and bad that occurred in my absence.
Let's start with the good:
-No sign of BBA (yippee!)
-GSA has also cleared out on the front glass
-All my fish are alive! (Ofcourse I couldn't count the hara jerdonis, but I saw two of them hanging out in the plants...)
-Crypt petchii grew a couple of new leaves! yes, not just one, a couple!
And then there's the not so good...
- 3 ramshorn shells... I just cant seem to keep these so called pest snails alive!
- My blackworms in the jar next to the window froze to death :( I didnt take any photos... mushy wormy carcasses makes a pretty gross image. Need to venture out to the lfs soon to get more... *cries*
- Tank is super overgrown and needs to be cleared out and trimmed (especially the salvinia!) I'm personally not a fan of trims and water changes, so this is a :( for me.
Feeding the tank was the first thing I did when I came home... the guppy's such a bully...
I saw two hara jerdonis today as opposed to the usual ... none. I'm blessed today.
Extra fluffy xmas moss
I never really show a shot of the back do I? Well here it is. You know how people have sumps to improve filtration? This is my "plant sump", that ugly hidden part of the tank which helps the handle the bioload. After all, just having moss isn't very good insurance against an ammonia spike. there's all kinds of unpresentable plants here in the back, guppy grass, more unruly stems, stray moss...
Drift wood platform
Full tank shot :)
RIP poor nameless ramshorn snail...
