I call it a low tech high tech. I'm using my somewhat high tech gear to create a low-mid tech style scape. I'll make sure it's nice

Nice shot of the old scape.

So, you're still dealing with algae issues, eh? If it makes you feel any better, I'm still knee deep in that diatom problem, only I found out it was never diatoms, it's GDA. It was pretty clear after it turned all the glass green, then sloughed off into the same brown mess I've been looking at for the last 6 months, it's all over leaves, hardware, everything. I guess I never gave it a chance to get green before and automatically thought brown = diatom. I let it die off once and it came back full strength. Good news is some new otos are cleaning leaves with no problem. I went ahead and rescaped the tank anyway, tired of waiting, of course that brought on some nice fuzz algae that's taking it's sweet time to go. Can't wait to set up the 110 low tech.

Its doing alright, still having those same problems with the brown dust and slime and such. Everything is growing, not well might I add.

I looked over the beginning of this journal and found that all my success took place with that ugly 13000K MH bulb over the tank, and that even the very first scape's overall health started to decline when I switched to the ADA. I'm going to try and transition back tot he 13000K and see if it makes a difference. The way the tank is going right now I don't know how much longer I can keep it under control.

BTW, I made the new journal remember? lol, it's got all the pics so people wont know what we're talking about if we post in this one, try and let this one die lol.
