Sorry for the loss of fish. Looks like a simple bacteria bloom. Beautiful setup. Tall tanks scare me because I think I would want to fill up all the space with wonderful things and therefore leaving 0 room for anything that moves around.

Sad to read about your fish, but the tank looks beautiful.

thanks MrAmost and amajoh.
so if it is a simple bacteria bloom how do I get it under control? large water changes?
it has been suggest to me to do nearly a half tank water change three days in a row.
comments?

YES! clear at last!


and the tetras and rainbows have been moved to the larger tank. 3 angels, 7 rummy noses, 5 black rasbora, 3 julli cories, and 4 ottos call this tank home.

LyzzaRyzz, I think that is what is in the back to the left of the large dw, they were very tall but malted and have just started to grow back...see the three long thin blades?

and thank you, I am pleased with it myself at this point.

played wit the camera a little tonight.
water is clear and plants growing(you can see the micro sword/grass creeping through the sand and down the sides of the mermaid), fish all look healthy and happy.
I purchased two niteat(sp?) snails and love them, you can see thier little mouths munching away as they climb the glass.
I think the angels are lovely but it is all the little things living in this tank that catch my eye.

This tank has come a long way! It was fun reading this thread. Your plants are really starting to come into themselves.

I know you may be attached to it, but have you ever considered taking the upside down Y-shaped piece of driftwood out? In terms of composition, I think it would give the tank better perspective. The piece in the back corner reminds me of Halong Bay in Vietnam. Although, I do like how the other piece forms a little roof over the mermaid .

Either way, happy to see your success so far.

the new parents were not good parents, perhaps they will do better next go around?
they are fun fish to have in the tank and their colors are outstanding!

the angels got to aggressive an have been moved to the 80gal tall I have. Now this tank id a mini micro ...lots of little inhabitants
5 black rasbora...love these guys!
7 rummy nose tetras
6 ottos
3 jullie cories
2 blue rams
a doz or so green neons .........love them! tiny and tight schoolers! look like a bunch of tiny lights
and I just got a male dwarf fire goramie as kinda a center piece fish

I have worked real hard at finding fish that add color to the tank. visitors cant believe they are fresh water fish, they think you have to go with salt water to get colorful fish.
anyway I have a pretty full fish load but being they are all small things it doesn't even look crowded

have had a time with some black algae. my rams have not done well, one disappeared and the other had a growth on its head and has gotten quite thin and pale although it eats well.
all other fish are doing well. I got two amano shrimp and they have gone to town on the algea, yeah!
here is the tank today
