Today is 3rd day without water changes with ammonia and nitrite 0 and nitrates 10 :)

My tank was cycling for two whole months but I made it through :)
I still vacuum everyday, there is always alot to clean, plec is making most of the mess but I am getting 200+ litre tank before summer so he will have a new home before he grows to a full size, hopefully.
Kribensis couple does not like any of the caves in the tank so they dug one up under a patch of moss I put on the sand in hopes of growing a lawn. Funny how they prefer a hole in the ground to a cave in a bogwood :) Females belly is now so dark red it's almost black, both have the most amazing colors. Hope I will be able to take care of fry if the time comes.

Still having the brown algae, though. I going to get a single otocinclus today or tomorrow, could not find any info of any specific species that eats brown algae so I will gamble with what they have at LFS. Water is getting yellower by the day, not sure if it's the wood I put in a month ago or the algae?

Anyway, things are going well, I will test the water daily for a little while longer, 3 days is good but I guess it can still turn to worse, just because :)

    Recently my pair of Kribs had spawned and now there is about 30, 3 day old fry in my tiny 54 litre tank. I know survivability is not even 50% ;) so it should be fine until they are big enough to find a new home. I think I may need to star feeding the fry tomorow.

    I am very proud of my Kribs. Not only did they paired up nicely but they also had fry with a first try ;) they are great parents and there is no agression towards each other and very little to other fish, but they just learned to stay away ;)

    PS. Tank is now fully matured, all parameters are perfect and I only do water changes every 5 days ;)
