Update Week 3

So tank seems to be running smooth so far i do have a little bit of Diatoms i think but i should just let them be? Otos will eat them once i get them in there i think. The HC carpet has almost filled in, i'm thinking i might add a small bit of java moss on the main rock but I don't know.

Picture Tiem!

FTS








Pearling HC



The lone RCS that found it's way into the tank





Time Lapse

8/6/11


8/21/11 Dry Start Start


9/5/11 DSM


9/25/11 Tank Filled


And Today 10/11/11

Hey thanks! So far all I've been dozing has been brighty k, on Friday though ill change that to brighty k and green brightly step 1. I'm following the nature aquarium set up guide by Ada, so I'm currently also doing a lot of major water changes, but that will change on Friday as well.

I'll second that vote, those rocks are nice and they will be completly covered in moss if you go that route, it might start slow but once it starts it will grow like a weed.

Bum bum bum

So I got a pair of German Blue Rams for the tank instead of anything else. They seem to be doing fine so far. At least the one (Male? donno) is looking really healthy, he/she is chasing the other he/she and that one is stressed out fins all messed up I think it might die soon i hope not but i don't know.




My Tanks Specs:
ADA Mini-M
ADA Solar Mini-M Light
ADA Ryuoh Stone
ADA Power Sand Special-S
ADA Aquasoil Amazonia
ADA Aquasoil Amazonia Powder Type
ADA Lily Pipe Mini Inflow V-1
ADA Lily Pipe Mini Outflow P-2
ADA Green Brightly Step 2 One Squirt Once a Day
ADA Brighty K One Squirt Once a Day
ADA 5mm Thermometer
Cal Aqua Labs CLIP Drop Checker
Do!Aqua Music Glass Mini 15D
Eheim 2211 with macaroni and cocoa puffs, coarse and fine pads.
Harris by Harris Group Single Stage CO2 Regulator with Clippard mouse solenoid valve, SMC AS1200 needle valve, and a 2.5 LB CO2 Tank
Hydor ETH-200 Inline Heater
Glass Top

Flora:
HC Cuba Hemianthus Callitrichoides
Ludwigia Repens

Fauna:
Pair of German Blue Ram Cichlids
Zebra Nerite Snail
Ramshorn Snails

Once Weekly 20%-40% water change.
Trim HC Every three weeks.



Can anyone identify the sexes on the rams please?





Number 1. I believe a male, am I correct?








Number 2. I think female, but i really don't know.








Some FTS










Some Pearling





Ram and Nerite







Thanks for looking!

Thats a pretty small tank for that pair, it's should be at least 15 gallons. But it looks great!
