Confused journey of another nano

If you're looking for a super cheap method, you could always use plastic wrap and just loop it around quite a few times until it is to your liking.

But yes L8nite answered this aptly.

Your tank looks great! I just quickly skimmed through the thread and it looks very nice. What light is it that you are using? Is it an Odyssea?

Thanks, max. Unfortunately the tank is a shell .

I cleaned it all out to simplify it.

It is a beamsworks 18" LED. the thread isn't closed, cause who knows when I'll start it back up!

This is still a dead tank, but I will just say its plants are living on well in other tanks of mine lol.

So are pieces of the scape. Can you find them in my Almost-Ada tank? ;D.

Glad to hear the soul is living on :-). My tanks are all doing relatively well with almost zero attention the past 6mo. Have some algae issues in most of them now, but nothing too serious.

I'm super happy to hear yours are doing well too. When you get busy, you get busy.

How's that spec doing?

Is anybody ready for more confused journey?

I bought a shrimp rack! With more space means... I has to has more tanks!!!



I know it's nothing like the old hardscape but hat do you all think of this? Almost like a juniper bonsai.

Got the old light back up and running!

Tank is on my shrimp rack, hardscape meets my approval(looking for other comments on it still!)

And the light is suspended. You heard right! I had high light even WITH floaters galore.

So I decided to suspend it to decrease the light the tank receives. I don't want algae at all.

A shrimp rack...

Now, all this time I had it wrong, by putting it in my pantry, lol. This looks confused, but smart! Can't wait to see your progress.

Tank looks good though I would try to raise the end of the DW, a little bit, if it were me, and or place the right rock towards the back, and the end of the branch to the front of the rock, as the rock seems "heavy" in front of the branch.

Good to see you in the shrimp action again. Also interested to which tanks you add to the shrimp rack!

Thanks! Great to see you still putting about here! I'm going to superglue the wood onto the rock actually. Then just bury it all. It'll look better that way.

I'll have roughly 6 tanks on the rack I think. But I'm going to take my time in setting them up. I have a new one being shipped to me today.

Hehe I haven't gotten to flora yet, but that's not a bad idea. I think I'm going to try to do this one as a grow out tank for mini Xmas moss and do mini fiss on the branch or spread a moss ball on the branch! Not sure yet.

Okay here's the updated scape. I realized that putting a filter in will kind of ruin it but it's something you have to deal with!

Filled with water today. Filter tomorrow. I really want to use this mostly as a moss grow out tank. There will be a population of neo culls in here I think eventually. And snails to cycle and hold the cycle.
