    @MariaS i know the feeling of plants that barely get by. Hopefully this time the luck has turned for me

    My fish dont nurse my plants.... so i put new ones in.. last a few months and then replace them again... and so it goes on....
    I also battle quite a bit with brown algae... so... maybe one day i will try a planted tank with gupies instead of naughty monsters
