And then the tank "crashed'.
Suddenly heavy algeablooms broke out, plants started going bad, fish started dying. Never found out why realy, but it broke my heart.
Stopped fertilizing, lowered the lighting, and let it run it's course.
I neglected the tank for a few years, just let the horemanni's take over and a few fish.
Been getting interested more and more again, last year. Originally there was a plan to make a new tank in another location, but these plans are on the backburner at the moment.
Been thinking about making it a new biotope again.
South american ofcourse, and i'd like to get it close to reality, so it's more about finding a spot which could be recreated closely, but also nice plants have to be there.
Luckily more and more biotope videos are available.
For now i try to find out which plants work in the deep tank (and not just only the echinodorus) and stil can be found in natural biotopes.
