March Update

Had a major itch to re-scape and cut back the plants... Happy now. At least the neons can swim and school properly.

The tank itself is running well... the glass tubes need a good scrub...
Canister filter is now filled with bio-media balls, the HOB filter has (only used as a water cascade unit- motor not on) a bag of purigen.

Hi there - Cheers!
The tank is all low tech... just a couple of drops of Flourish Excel every day.
The plants in the foreground is a variation of Ludwigia (I think).
I'll check when I get home, I keep a record of what's what....

Hi mate. Yeah I think everyone gets some leaves falling off their plants... it's nature after all. I find adding excel potassium helps to strengthen the plants...

Clever usage of the HOB My sister's boyfriend has a 12g edge as well, I think I'll show him your journal. I love the look of these tanks, but the small opening on top looks to be a challenge for doing maintenance. Your tank looks great though, good job!

Thanks!!! It was a challenge initially for about 2-3 weeks to do maintenance (fiddling with it so-to-speak). however, when the tank settled in.. its not that hard anymore... I don't vacuum the gravel or scrape the glass anymore. I just do a 15% water change every 2 weeks. I think I got the balance right when choosing the Fauna.. I have an efficient clean up crew.

Check this out. A very clever conversion of the aqua clear 20 for the fluval edge 46 but I do like what you have done...
