Back up and running! Split pipe! I’ve moved the tank back 10mm as well.

It’s been a few weeks since I bothered with a water change. I added a few alder cones and a couple of leaves which the shrimp are loving.

I’m down to the last 4 neons which aren’t looking great these days, no doubt will loose another one soon.

My tiger lotus is finally doing something so might actually have one growing soon!

And yes I will remove the duck weed today while I do a water change. Stuff is horrible lol

Finally got the duckweed out, we will see if any more crop up from the ashes!

At this rate I might even have a leaf by Christmas!!

I’ve managed it before but decided to put some in this when I stocked it stupidly heavy. Did the job but now it’s time for it to burn in hell
