velvet report

Ended the first blackout stage yesterday. Having the tank wrapped made me fretful- I couldn't easily see the fishes to check on their symptoms. Unlikely to see any difference yet, though. Well, they are all still alive. The kuhlis look a bit stressed- their color is not so good. Barbs look fine. Not as dusty, but I haven't done the flashlight check yet. Continuing to dose kordon ich attack, once a day now.

The plants didn't seem to mind the blackout- and the crypts and aponos definitely look cleaner, brown algae gone. I see a bit of thread algae and BBA on driftwood buces, will clean that off by hand on water change day and see if it stays away this time.
