    Here's the updated tank photo:

    I guess it didn't turn out that bad after selling a bunch of the plants, although I do have somebody getting another large order of plants in a couple weeks who will most likely be taking two of those large amazon swords from me. This will give me the room I'm been needing to try out some new plants. Oh, and the only new additions in there since the last pic would be a few stems of anacharis and a couple bunches of jungle val.

    Nice tank you got there. I think I see some neons in the background maybe and what other fish do you have in there?

    Thanks Ringo. All of the details are listed in the first post ;)

    Can you ID for me the plant in the middle of the pic, background area? And is the ground runner dwarf hairgrass or possibly amazon chain sword?

    Sorry, for some reason there are two plants in there that never seem to come out well in the pictures. The one in the back that I think you're asking about is Myriophyll​um Tuberculat​um. Then I also have some Rotala Wallichii in front of that which isn't even noticeable in the pics. The foreground runner was sold to me as pygmy chain sword.

    Thanks! the runner looked like it to me, could be dwarf chain, amazon chain, pygmy chain... whatever they wanna call it right?! Thanks for the ID.

    Seeing as how my nitrates are zero, my soil substrate is probably no longer providing much nutrients to the plants. I decided to order some dry fertilizers to mix together into a liquid solution. As of now, I plan on dosing potassium nitrate, monopotassium phosphate, potassium sulfate, magnesium sulfate and CSM+B. That'll take care of the macro-nutrients such as nitrate, phosphate, potassium and magnesium as well as micro-nutrients like boron, iron, manganese, zinc, etc. Since I will be dosing fertilizer, I'll need to test my water parameters more often than usual to see how quickly they build up. I'll also most likely begin doing small water changes every other week to prevent too much of build-up of any particular compound, especially things I can't test for.

    As if the amazon swords aren't taken over as is, I just found a SECOND runner coming off of the same mother plant. I don't know what's going on with this one but it just keeps producing more daughter plants. I have a beat up empty 29g lying around I'm thinking I'm going to convert to a grow-out tank for some of these plants (no fish). I'll use a mixture of soil and play sand for the substrate and I'll either just stick it by a window or even place it outside in sun and see what happens. I'll keep the tank empty for a while and monitor algae and manually remove when needed. I'll most likely use some diy co2 diffused by an internal filter to reduce algae as well. We'll just have to wait and see what i decide to do.

    There is total mayhem in the tank right now lol. Not only do the kribs keep spawning like every two weeks but the angelfish just laid another batch of eggs. Between the angels protecting their corner and the kribs going crazy everywhere else, none of the other fish stand a chance lol. I was teasing the male angel and held my finger over the water where the eggs are and he nearly leapt out the the tank to attack me.

    I'm thinking I may need to remove the third angelfish since the mated pair keep picking on him. I also plan on removing the livebearers and possibly the x-ray tetras and harlequin rasboras. I think the tank would look nicer with just the angelfish and krib pairs, my algae eaters (otos and SAEs) and a large school of neon/cardinal tetras. I think there's like 20-30 in there right now but I'd like to double that.

    New pic:

    It's a mess in there right now but I'm expecting some people to stop by soon to purchase my trimmings.

    The angelfish eggs are wiggling around right now. I think I see the tails sticking out and it looks like they're trying to break free of the eggs. Either that or they've already broken free and their bodies just look like eggs lol.
