Been a while since I have been posting here, too much stuff going on at the moment. The tank still runs like a champ, super stable, bit of green algae (prob feeding a bit too much), plants are thriving and I even have a baby Swordfish! 

Will post a pic one of these days! 



So good to hear from you, Ruud! Glad to hear the tank is doing well. And yay for baby fish!!! Congrats!

Yup tank is doing great, just wished it was bigger or had more tanks but maybe next year. Trying to buy a house with a 100m2 basement but stuck in paperwork hassle and spanish red tape at the moment.  But maybe end of the year more tanks for me!

I do have issues with some argue and clouded water but trying to feed less now. 

Anyway, here some photos of fish!

I just love this black balloon molly with great looking fin


Baby (or toddler by now) Swordfish



This one was sold to me as a male, but has an enormous belly so just wondering if it might be a pregnant female in disguise

So sad news the other day, my blue Gourami passed away. He was less lively and not eating much for a few days allready. Not sure what happened, he didn't look hurt or sick but maybe he was bullied by the other bigger male Gourami. 

On another note, I am starting to have a lot of what I think is beard algae lately. I have trimmed down the light from 8 hours to 6.5 and have been feeding less food. Is there anything else I can do?

So I ordered a bottle of Flourish Excel, what do you exactly mean with "spot treat" @Colu ?

Also other plant issues I have is that my Crypto has black/rusty spots, whilst my Amazon Swords start having yellow/transparent leaves whilst both also have BBA though most of it is on the wood. All point to deficiencies obviously, but should I add fertilizer or will this only make things worse with the BBA?
