George the dwarf suckermouth catfish and Speckled Jim the shrimp are still alive today! George has been confidently swimming from leaf to leaf and Jim has scurried about, hung upside down from a plant and has made a home in the end of the bogwood log. Busy.
I used a magnetic algae cleaner on the tank today and it looks a lot better; there is plenty of algae on the plants for those who want to eat it and I have bought a pellet food for them too, so they won’t starve. All is well in aquarium world.
