thanks man!


Update: Woke up and found hydra in the tank this morning. Dosed .5 gram safe guard (fenbendozale). Will see what happens. Sucks because the plants were starting to grow back in, and would have been able to take a nice photo shoot of the tank again. Oh AND I somehow got duckweed. I think it came on the water sprite. No big deal though, so far I like it. But want to get some frogbit.

Yes. Don't get aquarium herpes man. You only like it now since you have like ~10 bits.

As for the dosing dewormer, why no pictures? Is it because your water is cloudy now?

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.

haha is it really that bad? I mean I know I can probably never fully get rid of it. But cant I just scoop it out when there gets to be too much?

And yep cloudy water with bits of white stuff all over isnt the best looking photo op lol. I will take pics soon.

Yea it gets pretty bad. When the top is covered you can clog up filters and what not. And anything you stick your hand into your tank it'll come out covered in that stuff as well :\

I have not decided what will be in the rimless. Either fire reds or another type of neo. I put in regular black gravel and a cycled aquaclear filter in it yesterday. Gotta buy the archea 36watt wednesday and an eheim 2211. Probably going to get lilly pipes and clear hosing for the eheim.

Its my ADA look-a-like lol. FYI anyone interested in Mr Aqua quality, its deffinately lower iron glass then most store bought tanks. Not as good as ADA though.

Oh and I have no idea what kind of algea that is on the driftwood. Sorta looks like hair algea. Looks cool so im going to leave it alone haha.
