    Going through it with my fish today. I am still doing a lot of water changes due to julius's ich and the restarting of the cycle in the tank. Everybody seems happy with the exception of the dojo loach. He seems good most of the time, but he breathes heavy often times. I can't tell if it is due to all of the changes with the tank or if he is not well. My hope is that we can tough it out until the cycle is good. That's number one and may be the problem in itself. Still lame. I'm bothered by it. I am not comfortable having to wayside an issue in wait for another to be resolved. Hurry and cycle tank!!!

    On an up note the three cory's are double their original size. My new guy, the chinese Algae Eater is pretty big now also. fatties :) love 'em They're growing :) The loach Mr. Han is also much bigger. I feed them well with a variety of foods. I have to slow back.

    Again, you do not need to start a new thread every time you make a journal entry. Just post in the journal you already started. I will merge this with the other three I already merged.

    Good feedback Stardancer. I do have the anacharis which is supposed to be a good preventative to algae. I also have that CAE everybody is foreboding about. Between the two I have had no problems with algae so far, I almost wonder sometimes if I ought to toss my algae eater a wafer more often,but I don't want to discourage tank skimming for food. I hear that's not likely with the CAE. I've been told tales he's going to be a nightmare of a glutinous thing to have. The algae eating version of a goldfish. The eating Defecating warlord of the tank .Scary.

    I will keep an eye out. I have heard the sunlight encourages growth of things you may not want.

    Any chance my good bacteria will grow more quickly as well with sunlight? I want to facilitate the process of the cycle after the ich disturbance I had.

    The BB don't seem to be affected by the presence or absence of light. Just keep your water clean for the fish.

    CAEs are voracious, and they only eat algae when little. He'll keep the tank clean no matter how well fed, right up until he decides he's big enough to switch to adult food--slime coats.

    Do you think If I get him into eating the algae pallets or find another favorite food I can sidestep disaster?
    I am thinking if I find something else he likes I can get a handle on the problem before it begins.

    SO I am getting excited about a mineralized soil substrate project. I have had plans to future tank size upgrade for some time. As we all know, my current fish will not be comfortable in a 10 Gal for much longer. I was reading some "how to's" on mineralized soil substrate and I am getting exceedingly excited. My plan is to have a 40 Gal planted and add some new stock. Yippeee! Then my 10 Gal will becocme a breeder tank. All of my current plants will be moved to the 40 Gal plus some new plants. I am researching plants right now for the Breeder. This is going to be my Tiki Love Shack. I want it decorated tiki god/Hawaiian style with floral aquatic plants and maybe some groundcoverish for the lower level plants. I think I am going with Bowl lotus and someone suggested Moneywort as well. I like it. I'm into whimsical ideas if that hasn't jumped out and hit you like a wet mop yet .

    It's like setting a chocolate birthday cake in a room with a little kid, giving them a salad to eat instead, and leaving the room. They might take a couple bites of salad, but eventually they're going to eat the cake. Only with CAEs, the fallout is worse.

    Hmm, disheartening. If he wants to go there with it I suppose I can make him his own tank with a bunch of sharks, eels, and oscars. Play nice or you will play with the mean kids :)

    Be careful as your bettas can jump out if you don't have a lid, and i personally think that most goldfish are pondfish but that's just my personal opinion maybe it's better to sell or give away some of the fish or get a bigger tank
