Quick update on some things :)
Neo is fat and likes to eat crayfish pellets (and sometimes nibble on algae wafers) otherwise the 5g is doing well, some of the shrimps have disappeared, no surprise there but they continue to reproduce so I still have a pretty static population of about 10-15 most are wild color now, a few blue and oranges tho. The tank is doing well, no noticeable potassium deficiency since I began dosing about 2 weeks ago. The crypts are doing fantastic, as is the java fern, everything else is just normal lol.
The LFS had CPOs yay! I love the little critters, 90% sure this one is female, her name is Scuttles
The tank is finally complete in the way of decor, plants are doing well, one of the swords is doing a little better than the others, likely because it's in a more high light area. The tiger lotus is looking good, getting larger every day, tons of little leaves that are showing a lot of red surprisingly enough I hope they stay that way. Been dosing 1/4 doses of Excel daily (.25 mL) so I'm thinking that has something to do with it. All the pieces of dwarf sag have produced at least 2 new leaves since planting so it's slowly starting to fill in. Very little melt overall, even the crypts are doing well with only a few yellowing/melt leaves.
New glass unicorn, the spirit of Mielikki is finally here! For non-D&D people, Mielikki is the goddess of nature and the forest and her common manifestation/icon is the unicorn. Mielikki is also a Finnish pagen goddess of the forest and the hunt.
That's it for now I think
I was wrong, forgot to show off this!
I know she's not a fish, but I'm super excited to have her hanging/flying in my living room now :) My favorite grandmother who was an incredible, AMAZING person, passed about 3 years ago and one of the things I wanted from her was basically a teal version of this flying lady. My uncle (who is in charge of the estate) forgot and when he realized it, he went out and found me this one, she's not the one my grandma had, but she's still a nice reminder of her <3
