DAY 48

Need some advice please! Having a little trouble with my Monte Carlos, bunches of them seem to be turning clear and I'm not sure what the reason would be? Lights on for 6.5 hours, CO2 goes on half hour before light goes on and turns off half hour before the light does.
Performed water changes everyday for the 1st week. For the 2nd week, I decided to do water changes every week. And it's only the MCs that are having problems. Everything else is looking good.
Also added 2 vials of biodigest in the 2nd week, a friend hooked me up with them. Have no clue what it does, just know its good live bacteria.

Grabbed more plants from default, picked up 24 galaxy rasboras...1 unfortunately died when swimming in front of my pompom crab. Also grabbed 6 Otos.
We'll see how things go right now, need the cleanup crew to do some serious maintenance on the algae. Waiting on Amano shrimp and nerite snails to come in.

Did you see the crab grab the galaxy rasbora? I've had pompom crabs and I didn't see them swipe at anything other than a food pellet.

Yeah, I did. It was within 3o minutes of putting him in. Was climbing up some leaves and a galaxy just happened to swim by. Grabbed it and snapped the neck. Must've been in defensive mode.

I see a hole in the back corner of my tank, beside a rock, think it burrowed itself there. I don't see it often.

Haha, sorry. Nothing too interesting has been happening, so decided not to post much.

So currently, there are 9 emerald rasboras, 23 galaxy rasboras, 3 Otos, 6 horned nerite snails, and a bunch of Amano and RCS shrimp. And a pompom crab.

I had a couple of Otos die on me, originally had 2 pompom crabs but 1 got aggressive so im down to 1....had 1 emerald rasbora die due to injury, but I have no agreessive species in the tank, and no marks on the fish other then a tiny cut under the belly. Found a small piece of glass in my tank, might've rubbed against it, not sure.

My water parameters are a bit off, but stable I guess...

TDS: 280
Ammonia: 0
PH: 7.6
Nitrite: 0
Nitrate: 0
KH: 6
GH: 14
