    before maintenance , some plants trimed before 3 days.
    I do so experiments , i dose lot of traces and fe.
    When i started i dose 0.02ppm traces, and 0.02 dtpa fe.
    Now im dosing every day dtpa fe 0.04 ppm, and 3 times a week tracs 0.04ppm fe, for testing traces toxicity ...
    Nothing happens, i ll see how this will go.
    I saw a big diference in grow just using air pump at night.
    You can see the one week grow in the photos.

    The extra growth and colour has greatly improved great job

    Its the old story with your tank now "What ever you are doing do not change a thing".

    All I can add is keep an updated diary of that tank.

    I would prefer to give you a LIKE++++

    This photo has me intrigued are all these new growth at the same time or does it close up after lights out like some garden plants only open during daylight hours.

    Is there something else that triggers that action?

    Over the year is it always about the same time.

    I had one native Orchid that only opened just before it rained.

    Animals are like this we had a cat (given to us people opposite after they moved) at about 4 to 4.30 pm regardless of the season she would sit at the top of the drive for about 15-30 min then would come inside again. From that we worked out it was not caused by the natural light.

    They birth in a glass bottle covered with dark fabric.
    The fist 3 day the babies don't go anywhere they stay in the net.
    I just remove the glass , that's all the babies.

    I thought you might have a small breeder fry tank clipped on to your tank.

    That sounds like a very good method.

    More of the same fish you have now. They will look great when all schooling together.
