An update! ADA Lily pipes are finally installed! I had a BG algae breakout and overdosed excell right before the lights went off which resulted in killing all my Amano shrimp and leaving my fish gasping for air the next day. I went to work and when I came back all my shrimp were cooked pink in the the tank. did a 50% water change and added a couple of air stones as well as a HOB with Purigem. I replaced the 20 Amano shrimp and a SCAPE member told me of a LFS that had green neons. I went over and bought them all. So now I have 90 green neons after adding the 25. this pictore is after another 4 day blackout before a trim and before adding the shrimp and fish.

Try taking a picture looking into the aquarium from the front instead of looking down on it. Hooray for fish! It doesn't look too bad after an od and a blackout
Keep it up I would also suggest putting the two lilys next to each other. You get better flow that way.

I have tried putting the lily pipes next to each other and could not tell the difference in flow. The filter is on the left. Maybe having shorter tubing would increase the flow if I put both on the left.
Ill try to post a FF pic but the metal halides are so bright it makes it difficult for a good pic.

I see. Do the halides make a purple streak down your pics?

Yeah purple or pink. I have a canon Elph 7.0 meg. Its pretty good better than most point and shoot cameras. Takes awesome Macro pics which is why I bought it. Its not as good as an SLRof course. I was thinking of having someone take some pro pics for the ADA contest but it won't bounce back to the way I want it by the deadline.

Well another update im going back to the clean fresh cut look again and moving some fish out to make way 4 more green neons. Some have died and other jumped out so I will remove the tons of blue endlers some micro rasboras one panda gara and maybe some SAE's that are huge they can go graze on another tank. BTW the snow ball population is exploding in this tank.







thanks 4 viewing my thread

Now that everything has matured and the tank is balanced and stable the maintenance is pretty easy. Weekly 30%-50% R/O water changes no fertilizer and trimming every week to week and a hal. Just like when i mow the lawn.
Thank you I appreciate your comments. I have to say this is the tank I have always wanted.
