Tonight my wife spotted two more baby highfin/twin-bar mixes in the tank. They are about 3 to 4mm long. (natural and not from the breeder)
I did a trimming on the sword and the two hygrophila's that were breaking the surface. I trimmed them at the top of the plant so they will go out instead of up now.
Gave all trimmings to my G'ma N-law for her goldfish that are like 8" long in the 55g tank. They like my plant trimmings.
I'm hoping that the sword will grow like crazy after the trim. The one in the 10g tank did just that the last time I trimmed it back.
I cut off all of the leaves that had brown, holes or that were damaged from when I bought it. It has already doubled in stalks since I got it and now it will only have good leaves to support.
