A quick update. First, I finally ordered the noga and roberts books today :clapping: they were expensive but I am excited to finally have them :)

My swords are doing great and I really love the way they look :) They are already putting out little baby swords!

Hairgrass in the betta tank is finally beginning to spread on its own to places I didn't plant it! Yay! The floating HC has been completely taking over the tank. I have been having to take some out every few days or else it gets so thick that it blocks light. I also am getting a ton of green algae in that tank right now. I plan to let it grow in on the back wall, but I really need to clean the front wall! Task for this weekend!

Puff's tail was really red yesterday. Alex suggested stopping the MG and he looks amazing today (thanks Alex ;) )! There's still a few veins, but it looks so much better, just in 1 day! I am really surprised by that. He is getting so big. I can't wait to weigh him again when I take him out of QT in a couple weeks. Here's some pics of my handsome boy :)

eating some jumpstart :P

The betta tank looks amazing. I would love to have grass in my tank, but I don't want to do co2, and I don't think it will grow without it.

Those swords look great too! Overall, I'm very jealous of your green thumb.

Yay for Puff! He needs to get back to Edie! Look how lonely she looks. :)

Yay! How is the wen?

Do you remember how someone recently suggest we make a flow chart for symptoms and treatments? Now you see first hand why we can't do that so easily lol.

I'm so glad he's doing better. He looks great!

Thank you Shawn :) I honestly am very lazy about running my co2 (I turn it off at night and often forget to put it back on in the morning), so I wonder if the hairgrass would do fine with just excel and good lighting.

Thanks! :) I can see a slight redness in the wen but it is really faint as compared to the day I posted.

Thank you :) Puff's face is soooo cute, glad someone else sees it :rofl

Oh look at Puff! How great! He sure has grown, look at that wen!Cannot wait to compare his size to Edie!Love the grass and the stone.

Thank you Fede :) he definitely has grown, now he just needs to get that immune system working so I can stop QTing him every 2 months!

very nice hun.. your tanks look amazing :)

Thank you! :D

I LOVE your tanks! What do you do for the smaller one?

Thanks ashlee. For the betta tank I use all sorts of stuff going lol. I have 39 watts (on 5 gallons), the fluval 88g co2 system (I would love to do something diy at some point, but I so not handy), and I dose flourish, excel, trace, and iron when I remember to ;)

The swords are looking so good! I wish my goldies would not eat mine. They never have a chance to grow baby leaves before they get eaten.

And the hairgrass!! yay for you!

Amazing work, Tithra! Your tank looks wonderful! The plants are blooming in full vigour. It's so nice to see your Edie and Puff in full glory! All the best for you! :)
