Here's my new, tiny, chubby oto. He leaves trails in the GDA! Awesome algae eater. He was the only one in a tank with Pygmy cories, and he was swimming with them like he thought he was one!

Would a mod mind moving this to tank journals?

Co2 gear coming in about a week and a half!
I'm gonna upgrade my lighting. Should I go with a DIY cree led, the archaea 27w power compact, or will someone donate $100 for an aquasky?
If I go cree, I need aluminum flatbar and a channel or something to use as a housing.

Isn't that what you're shooting for? I thought that 45-55 Par for HC and DHG was plenty, and that it's considered high light!

No, I meant 80par is considered high light in an aquarium.

Also came home to a terrible algae mess. I must have siphoned out a full 1/4 cup of algae and I developed a bad spiro/hair/thread algae problem. Help! Will post pics tomorrow.

I don't think its boring. It is simple but I like that. Everything is so clean and easy to view. I think it is convincing as a little mountain meadow. I would trade you my messy 10g to look like yours.

Thank you! My DHG is messy, so I'm replacing it with belem. I have rotalas in the back now, they sprouted from a tiny plant I found in my riccia. I now have fish in the tank, CPDs! Here's one now.
