Everything seems to be well on it's way to normal in the tank again.
2 Months later...
I have one guppy that was born in the tank, along with two sunset platies who were also born in the tank. The Otos are still alive and kicking it.
I have tried to raise some cherry shrimp but something is killing them. (I have went through 8 so far) I originally suspected it was the African Dwarf Frog (ADF) but with that being moved to the other tank I can't say that's who's caused the problem.
I will rule the Otos out, so that leaves the other three culprits.
Anywho.... tank is thriving. I have done one filter change ... that's simply because the old one was falling apart and was interfering with the biowheel.
Still low stocking level with plants so I have yet to do a water change (since whenever my last one was). I keep adding water every two weeks or so due to evap but that's it.
Once "Baby" in the other tank kicks the babies out, they will be raised in this tank. More stable with nitrate levels and hopefully I can recover more than 2-3 of them.
I have done two trimmings on this tank so far. I did one major trim about two months ago. It looked about like my larger tank... Jungle fever baby!!!!!
