Our nitrites are still sky-high
The stupid fish eat the plants! For some reason, I think it’s particularly the angels – their beak-like mouths can do a lot of damage to the stems of the plants, stripping the tasty green bits off and eating them. The others do it, too – the cloaches, even. Sometimes those two daft fish seem to eat so much they get bloated and have trouble swimming. This is especially so since we get tablets of freeze-dried food. We thought they would be good for the bottom feeders, since there is little algae left for the algae eaters. As it turns out, everybody likes the tablets. They all have a nibble – or a gourami or angel will bite some off and spit it out, and other fish will eat those little bits.
Anyway – the new plant that looks like a succulent seems to be an especial favourite. There is definitely less of it that there was.
Ammonia is zero; nitrite still off the scale, but the colour may be a little less purple than previously.
