Plant height in (mm) 67
As you can see the nitrites and nitrates are still within the scale in which it should be, this is because of the 2 water changes per week. The plant has shrunk in height. It went from 92mm to 67mm. This is a drastic difference. The water is very murky and green, showing large amounts of algae. I could barely see the fish. The reason for this is because my plant is in direct sunlight.
From week 4 we have changed the strips that measures the water chemistry, from Sera to Tetra. The new strips represents the Ph in an interval, which gives us a better assessment of this category. The new strips are showing nitrates in the water but it is still in the safe area. The water is still very murky even with the two water changes per week. The Plant is very small and doesn't seem like it it growing. It was difficult to see the fish but when I saw him he was gliding, which means he is happy and healthy.
