I have been relatively quiet but busy these past few weeks and was never around Mylot a lot like l used to before. The reason behind was my mind and time was preoccupied by my hobby. l recently acquired a much bigger aquarium and had been busy setting it up and cycling the new aquarium. l decided to temporarily retire the smaller one and maybe set this up for emergency purpose only like a hospital tank in case there is a fish that will get sick in my new tank. Last Friday I decided to transfer my few remaining plants on my old tank and the fish as well I have observed that the tank has cleared up after I transferred my existing plants to the new one to fast track the cycling process of my tank. Seeing my plant growing normally I presumed that it is doing well and the water has since then cleared up significantly. After transferring the fish last and observed that they seem to be much happier swimming around I felt comfortable already with the way my tank is doing now.

LOL Well I could not resist that they are growing in my small tank and they easily get sick in it. Now they are happily swimming in their new tank. I certainly know they will not grow bigger anymore.

@DianneN For now but I feel like I have to keep on watching them for any signs because you'll really never know.

How could you do that when there's quarantine? wow I barely have 2 danios, a koi and two albino shark. Were did you bought those plants? for the moment I'm thinking of having a small aquaponics but no definite plan yet.

Well it so happens that I already have the plants in my old tank and just transferred it there. Also there is a nearby petstore near my place and I just have to walk. I actually started building it up about two or three weeks ago. I first put in the sand and some aquasoil then the stone decor then after a week I slowly added little by little the plants from my old tank to the new one. When I see them growing already. I started moving the rest of the plants there. And lastly, the fish came in the tank.

@Letranknight2015 I have bought a led light to it one with white and blue then a small led light with red green and blue colors. The plants seem to enjoy those and makes the leaves colored red too.

I'm sure the fish will appreciate the extra room.

They did and they swim fast around the tank and exploring the nooks and corners of the tank.

Yup but I love the busyness of this hobby of mine. It keeps me away from all the noise of the real world.. l think l deserve some silent moments and just be with this tank in peace.
