J. Eugene Fair
Could I use parchmane paper or wax paper? I've also see others use saran wrap or cling wrap.

14th Month - (The Baby Model Waterfalls and Rapids - Model 4 months ago   07:48

This is 14th month update. The fish are called Sparking or Pygmy gourami.

The tank is going through a rough time. A lot of the shrimp were eaten or partially eaten by the gouramis. Some shrimp are still breeding, but most of the little shrimplets aren’t making it to adulthood b/c of the gouramis. Also some of the dwarf hair grass is browning and algae has started to grow on them. Algae also started to grow on the guppy grass. The tank is losing balance. I think the main reason is the soil temperature. B/c it’s going through the winter months, and my house ambient temp is around 22~23°C (72~73°F), the bottom of the tank where the soil is, is cold to the touch. That means at that temperature, the bacteria in the soil is working much slower to break down the waste, and it’s not making CO2 fast enough for the plants. Also at the bottom where the grass is, the temps are too low for the grass to be growing fast. The plants toward the top of the tank are still growing fast. I really do think the soil temperature is quite important to the overall health of the tank. I guess during the winter months, I should feed the tank much less.

And of course, the baby gourami is a female! She wreaked havoc on this tank. It blew my mind. I really thought it was a male. I guess the female organ isn’t big enough to see until the gourami is a little bigger.

Maybe the last two gouramis will get along in the future.
