    Will try to take another shot if see it again....not skill in taking pic.
    It's a larvae looking thing wriggling...too small and too deep in tank to be mosquitoe larvae it seems...just not sure whether it will spread or harmful to tank as a whole or bad for fishes when I add few weeks later.

    Week 2

    The lily pipe already have brown stains, check the purigen also turned brown...this ADA Amazonian AquaSoil really very high in organic materials, bleach the lily pipe and change new purigen....

    Tank been pearling quite a bit supposed growth rate is OK, hopefully they will be healthy as well.
    Saw some roots anchoring pretty deep

    For the nano tank, also cycled...surprisingly 3 weeks to cycle, 1 week faster than the bigger tank.
    had a betta and put 2 Yamato shrimps, but overnight, the 2 shrimps jump out of the tank...1 under the table....1 managed to go to the kitchen ...about 6 meters away.....both dead......sigh...

    Re: New endeavour

    Sad day....two dwarf oto died...not sure why,been in tank for 4 to 5 days, left 2.
    water quality is good, 0ppm ammonia,0 ppm nitrite,10 ppm nitrate, ph 6.4-6.6
    rummynose are very active, cardinal also...eating well.
    rummynose head is much redder than first brought home, gills portion also red..black stripes very distinct .... very nice
    3 Yamato shrimps is active grazing ...
    plants...70 to 80% coverage from carpeting perspective though still not as lush...will need another month or so to be fuller and lush I Guess.

    hopefully no more casualty....
