    Sad day! Angels ate their eggs a few days ago.

    Oh, well- I hear that is pretty common the first time.

    Way back at the July meet, I got 3 baby red bristle-nose. I put them in the big tank and they promptly disappeared. I assumed they had all died, but after a water change today, one of them reappeared!

    Hahaha! There must be a lot of hiding places in there. Are they supposed to have any favorite foods you could put in front in the hopes of coaxing them out?

    It's such a good feeling when something you thought was dead makes an unexpected appearance. I hope you have multiple little ninjas hiding in there.

    Me too!

    The sinking pellets I put in there for the regular bushy seems to be drawing it out for now.

    No major updates on this tank: I continue to battle BBA in batches and feel like I am constantly thinning out plants.

    I have given up on growing anything in the middle that need trimming, so I have relocated some swords there for now.

    Pictures still don’t convey the depth of the tank. It is so relaxing to sit in front of it as the fish move back and forth through all the crevices and overhanging plants.

    The one pair of angels tried another batch of eggs and then immediately ate them again... oh well. I am going to try and have a tank set up for next time so I can move the eggs over and try to hatch them. The tank is so busy with hungry fishies that fry will never survive.

    FTS:



    Middle:



    Left hand side (“the sword farm”:



    Right hand side (“shadow valley”)


    And a couple of shots looking down the length from the short sides. Now that I cleared some plants out, you can actually see all the way down the tank!

    I am currently running the lights at only 55% intensity to keep the BBA in check, and I have abandoned any high-light stem plants anyway.

    The lights have 5 channels: cool white, warm white, red, green, and blue. I run the red and warm white slightly higher than the others to bring out the colors in the fish.
