I'm suffering through algae infestation already. I'm hoping it's just NTS. I got thread algae growing like MAD! It's not even green, it's brown!

Wait, that didn't sound right, did it?

Speaking of soil tanks, I'm setting up my MTS tank now because of this tank. I am starting out small scale and if it works well, I am totally converting the 55.

i set up a 20 two years ago and its still going. my first attempt failed for some reason. i was scared to do it on a larger scale but i read some journals on APC that convinced me to. do you plan on using co2?

just dont blast it with light!

I don't even know if I'm going co2. I am so trying to cut down to two tanks, but it would mean I'd need to get rid of my red shrimp. I figured maybe even a NPT type setup with minimal lighting except for sunlight?

That would be cool.

heres one of my apisto breeding tanks that happens to be my first NPT. its not pretty. but its been going for 2 years with no filter, no water changes and no ferts. the only thing i do is feed the fish every few days and trim the plants when they grow up and over the light. theres atleast a dozen generations in there because some stragglers always get left behind when i try catching them.

That is beautiful. I am so about to cry over this hobby from all the time it takes. The NPT sounds better and better every day.

Why do we have a hard time seeing the beauty in our own tanks?
