Topped off, fed and dosed both with biodigest tonight and after 2 - 2.5 weeks the cloudy bacterial bloom has subsided and life goes on in the baby tank.

Big difference after dosing. I've used biogest before in the past when I started a new tank and every once in awhile I will dose. It's only my 6g that has a sponge filter. The 3g doesn't.

Yeah to be honest I dosed with it to keep the water quality good while it seemed to of done a mini cycle from the shrimps growing in size and upping the waste. It’s all caught up now and we had no losses.

Removed some hair algae from the 2nd baby tank as it was getting crazy, i moved the opae ula macroalgae from this tank and put it in my Alpha tank to try and help the water quality in their tank.

Lol well spotted, i put some macro algae in this pot with an LED light on it. The macro algae was about dead so i thought id do an experiment and try and bring it back to life with plant fertilizers (tank safe ones).
