I gave away the lamp-eye tetras today. Also picked out about fifty malaysian trumpet snails from the window tank. There's still no algae to speak of, and I don't think the food left behind by two fishes would sustain that snail population so I thinned it out. Left in a handful of baby mts (size of a pinhead) and there's still a few adults I missed. Got a few plant packets from the pet store today- java fern 'red' variety it's the first time I saw it for sale. Won't have a chance to plant it for a few days- it will be fine in the gel container until my maintenance day.
