I'm a little bit miffed with myself today, was too hasty changing Nigel's water in his holding tank and as a result Nige lost a bit of his beautiful tail
The tank is halfway through cycling so hopefully he will be able to move into his new home soon!
Spent the whole time trying to kill everything that moved, right down to air bubbles! I think he's decided that the place is so sweet, nobody is going to be allowed to share! He took umbrage to the cherries and killed two of the four, the other two I haven't been able to see to save Bad Nigel!
The tail damage
And in his new home. Hopefully I'll work out how to get better lighting for a decent shot soon. I trimmed and replanted some of the blyxa and it looks much nicer now. The rotala melted pretty much from the day I bought it, hopefully the naked stems will bounce back in a few more weeks. The crypt has taken off, no melt at all
The gravel siphoning has messed up some of my arrangement, so next water change I will tidy things up.
My current fert regime (it's 25 litres)
3ml aqua one plant food
1/4 cap flourish trace
10 drops iron
daily/ every two days
smidge of flourish excel
Nigel gets 5-7 pellets of Attison's Betta PRO twce a day; he's very active. Gets a fasting day here and there too.
