All seems well...I did develop some algae on the glass suddenly over the weekend. I'm not sure if it's green dust algae or a couple different varieties. Most of it is light brownish in color and spotty but there are also patches of a bright green. Not sure if I should hit it with my magnet cleaner or not...

The plant in the front is a form of pennywort, Hydrocotyle sp. 'Japan'.

Thanks!

Thanks! They're aqmagic lily pipes from evilbay. The outflow seems to grow a bit of algae on it, but the inflow never has. In fact, my acrylic tubes are what gets dirty the fastest!

I got that from evilbay from a seller named e-shop37. They have 12mm, 14mm, and 16mm prefilters available. It was only around $9 bucks or so shipped, but the downside is it takes a few weeks to get from China.

Fits the above mentioned lily pipes perfect though!

I want a rimless tank and lily pipes, but I don't get as much money now so it is hard to support the hobby. More I research, more I want to spend lol.

THe tank looks like it is coming along though. Are you going to carpet the pennywort japan?
