    Are the large Angels getting along with the smaller guys?

    The large male chases the smaller white one every now and then when there's food, but for most of the day they school together.

    A few new additions.

    Also did a 20% water change today and manually removed some of the cyano algae and vacuumed the substrate.

    Also, I haven't dosed any ferts today. I'm going to cut down on dosing to see if it helps with the algae issue.

    Howzit guys and girls.

    Please can someone ID the grass going wild in the front center of my tank?

    Just thought I would post an update. I have stopped dosing Nitrogen and have cut down substantially. Quite a difference with the grass, which I need to trim and the vallis has grown tremendously :)

    Looks like pearl grass/ weed yeah. All growing in nicely.
    Incidentally saw images of albino clown loaches recently - really cool, figured I'd share. Last image is a 30 year old loach I saw on reddit yesterday - 1 foot long apparently!

    Decided to trim my grass today. Should it go shorter? Just trying to encourage more outward growth rather than upward.
