    Well this morning almost half the diatoms are gone overnight. All I've done is added about 30 plants and 10 small nerite snails put carbon in filter and dosed with flourish and flourish iron. Water is crystal clear and all the fish are in beautiful full coloration. My roommate asked "what did you do? It looks like a whole different tank from last night." I'm so excited a major positive experience in fish keeping.

    If you noticed my last post I added over 30 plants. It really helped enormously.
