Those otos love blanched zucchini when algae is not available. Mine hung out all day on a piece until it looked pregnant with its little fat belly. I like the name!

How much is the tank...? I'm afraid to ask because I absolutely must have it. It's only like $40 right?

The tank was only about $38, but everything added up comes to about 200, and that's not including tax since I bought almost everything (other than the light) from AFA in person.

tank -38
co2 - 40
light -30
filter - 15
heater -15
soil - 15
rocks - 30
hairgrass - 15
fish - 10

adds up quick!

Anyways, did a water change and a trim today. Grass is filling in nicely in the back, although I wish I used belem hairgrass in the front.

Maybe it's not too late to change it.

Love it. The WCM fit it well. Get some shrimp though!

Thank you all! The hairgrass in the front needs to fill in so there's no bald spots but once that's done, this tank'll be ready for AGA!

I had to shut this tank down due to the move, but I set it back up again!

It's no longer using the hakkai stone, I've put those into storage for now, instead I'm going to try seiryu again.

3 stone iwagumi with HC and some hydrocotyle sibthorpioides.

I'm running an ADA Vuppa-1 as a filter with a flat pack heater and disposable co2 cartridges.

Can't wait to see how it springs back to life.

Going to use the same livestock as before?

nah, I'm probably going to just keep shrimp in here. I took the fish back to the store.
