Day 4 of El Natural:
Ammonia: 0 ppm
Nitrate: 5 ppm
Phosphate: 0 ppm
pH: 7.4

Not much has changed in terms of water parameters. I added some MTS, ramshorns, and pond snails. I plan on getting some shrimp and livebearers from rjfurbank this weekend to stock up the tank. Again, there is no filtration on this tank, just a heater. It took over a day for the temperature on the opposite side of the tank from the heater to reach the set-point of 72F, from a starting temperature of 50F. There are a few new leaves on all the stems, which is a good sign. The blyxa japonica is starting to fade from the bright color it started with, so not sure if it is going to make it.

Nothing too new to update on the El Natural, except that I added a mini-powerhead filter thingy to get some water movement. Blyxa Japonica leaves were all fading and falling off, so I removed it all. Guess that answers the blyxa question....

I added Neocaridina heterpoda var. yellow and Heterandria formosa from rjfurbank. Heterandria formosa is quite a cool little fish I am really enjoying. Pictures will be posted at 1 month.

Thanks!!

PS Sorry for missing the BCAS meeting, I really wanted to be there to here the photography talk cause I'm a noob, but my gf had other plans for me.
