I continue to dial co2. I did see some pearling today. Need to keep going but I don’t want to gas my guys!

I have about half of the ph drop I need. I want to better understand the kh/ph relationship. Here I am at 20 degree of kh. In Tulsa, 3 degrees.

I keep giving the needle valve another quarter turn each day. Hopefully this week I can get a full point of drop before lights on

I am going to start a new morning x if fertilizer tomorrow

I now have a water factory. Ro is hooked up. I am slowing dropping the angel tank to about 200 tds. It was 700 when I started. I think I am down to about 500 now

I came home to a pleco fight. I decided to move my young male into my angel tank. I knew it was a matter of time

I am also dropping hardness slowly in the Bolivian pen. They keep spawning. I might try to raise a few of them.

I gave my single male pleco some zucchini this evening. The Leo’s dint want to let him eat. I continue to be amazed at how much vege matter they like

Some good news...... my T5ho light I dropped in my aquarium still works. I did not think there was a chance. I will figure out a better rig this time before I start using. 24 inch light in a thirty inch tank.

Question for all. I want to have a dwarf Cichlid on the bottom of my Leo tank. I was thinking pelvicachromis silvae. Ivanacara adoteka is interesting as well. Bio type wise I think the golden dwarf is a good fit. What do you think?

I had the privilege of meeting Andy Sager and Donna yesterday. I learned a bunch!
The privilege was ours. Just remember, no giving away trade secrets. ;) ;) (y) :whistle: :LOL:
