Water params are looking fine and this tank is in for a re scape. I've got a nice piece of driftwood to put in here. My plants also getting re done. I'm still gonna have the Ludwigia Arctura but I'm going to add in more DHG and see if I can't get it to carpet more.
I hope to get this all done before I head off to Texas for a 3 day conference. I will be dosing two drops of Excel and only one drop Flourish as well. That should help keep everyone green and happy. I will also be adding in a few root tabs to help out the DHG and other root feeders. Flourite is good but needs some help.
Nope. When I set it up I sanded down the blades of the impeller which reduced flow. I kept the pump on its lowest setting and I put a sponge over the outflow, which also reduced the flow. Artemis is quite content with his home and loves to eat and swim among the plants.
Algea update. I've been having algea issues lately with my two nanos and I am positive it's from an unstable water change schedule. Now that summer is here and I now have a full time job everything should begin to fall into place. Today's water change consists of vacuuming out algea and rinsing my sponge out to remove some green hair algae. Can't wait to get my tanks cleaned up and proper again.
Update - decided to re do the tank. Removed the algae filled DHG and planted some microsword instead. I've got some driftwood soaking currently and will place it in the tank soon. Also put a big Anubias in as well. Enjoy.
any updates on this? how's that light working out for you? i'm trying to decide if i should upgrade to that light or get a stronger led light for my spec. im curious to how your tank looks now tho, its been almost 5 months since you posted a pic!
Well I have no new pics and the light I currently have on there is prefect both in size and power. The spec is currently undergoing some work and I'm adding in some driftwood plus more plants. I highly recommend the Fluval 13 watt fixture. As far as led lights go I have seen one person used this on their tank.
