Do any of you have any tips on how to get rid of brown algae off of plants? My Amazon sword plant has a lot of it on its leafs, and it just looks ugly. I’ve tried to scrub it off, but I’m afraid I’ll end up breaking the leafs. My aquarium is finally free of it, but it. UGH
I really don’t want Sunday to get here, I don’t even know how I should react about it or how that day will go in general. Like, I’m worried about me just being me and end up acting like a big baby, and cry, or tough it out and just act like thirteen weeks apart is nothing.
Tomorrow is his little going away party, which I truly wished it would’ve been planned for today and not tomorrow, thus I’m only able to spend time with him on the weekends and now he’s leaving. He came over today, but had to leave again since he has to attend a little function early in the morning. UGH
Anonymous asked: Do you have any tips on tank cycling for a beginner?
Haha, I’m a beginner myself, but I try. 😏
Well, I personally went an bought Fuval Biological Enhancer and it worked perfectly! I did a fish less cycle, and let the aquarium run for about three weeks by itself, with a few accessories for the beneficial bacteria that was forming, to be able to attach itself to something and start spreading throughout the aquarium. I left my temperatures high, around 85 degrees. And, that was about it.
There’s multiple different ways to cycle an aquarium though: adding pure ammonia to the water, letting fish food sit at the bottom, using another (healthy) aquarium’s old media. It’s just whatever works for you, and what you’d prefer, I suppose.
Oh, also! You’d need a fresh water test kit! That’s very important, it’ll help you know where your pH levels are, ammonia levels, nitride levels, and nitrate levels.

But seriously, I hope I was able to help! You can also research about it online, and there’s a lot of people, with a lot more experience than me, that will help you understand the whole process. 💙
