Nothing much - noticed drop checker on tank bottom last week and fixed. Obviously liked it there as again on bottom and has been joined by the temperature gauge (late winter breeding pattern???). Can’t be bothered removing lights and covers to get so will sit there until next weekend.

Plants are in (only fell in tank once ). Still cloudy, canister filter back on and see how it goes. Only seem to have lost one tiger barb - jumped out sigh.

Lotus has lost two leaves (snapped stem I think) - hoping it settles in. Not sure on spot now but not game to shift it.

Lotus plant looking more happy. Reading lots of online text where it takes over a tank - hoping this one can have a root system under Anubias / front of tank and the leaves should be good shade / contrast.

First flower from aponogeton - bit shaky but looks established.

Lotus lost all the long leaves but looks to be going ok near ground level. Be awhile before I have to worry on pruning it :)

One small flower from sword opened (right near stem - hard to get a photo).

Water change and some plant cleanup. GSA came off the glass readily so hopefully stays away!

Nitrates at 20ppm (maybe 40ppm) and phosphate at 1pmm or bit less. Not overdosing anyways luckily.

Um’ed on getting 5gal tank out but left for another week. Finish some house projects first but cherry shrimp would be tempting!

Maybe there is something to the seachem advance. The Anubias nana is riddled with BBA but seems to have a flower stem as well.

I don’t know what to do with it. Dosing glut and growing bolbitis over it to shade it but the BBA is in the roots on the driftwood, etc. I’ll give it to November auction I guess.
