You can see here how that week without excel has just kinda decimated this tank. The tops of the leaves should be that kinda orangish red of the ones on the left, but they’re mostly green with algae instead. You can also see that big chunk of marimo I accidentally scraped off when doing a water change. There used to be a ton of diatoms in the marimo, but the shrimps have really cleaned that bit up. They’re working on the leaves, but they can only eat so much. Since Glaurung’s moved out, I’ve upped the flow from the filter, so hopefully that’ll help reduce algae in the future.

In other news, the glosso is growing well for not having co2.
