Awesome shot of the momma bird! I love it. The tank is awesome, by the way. I am jealous that you have ADA aquasoil.

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

Yes I got my yellows on wednesday 6-03-09, thanks about the pics I thought the robin was pretty cool too!

Updated news: Bought and received the rest of parts for pressurized co2, it's been set up as of 6-05-09, however I've had to shut it off. I had gotten some BGA on the substrate so i'm currently doing a 3 day black out, squirted some H202 on the few patches that I could see and added a full strength dose of Erythromicin, i've only enough money for a 3 days dose, so hopefully in conjunction with the H202 and blackout that will take care of it *prays*. I can't afford to lose this tank to BGA, i'm tapped out on funds so it's this or my tank dies. I'm assuming that the cause could be low nitrates, as when I tested the tank before I did the black out it was at 5 ppm. Problem is, I was in the middle of a 50% water change and trim when I found the BGA so i'm assuming it was probably at about 10 ppm or so, we'll see.

So far so good, no algae that i've seen since. Ripped the amazon sword out of the tank, it was spreading out to much, blocking flow and the bigger it got the more and more I hated it. So my tank is looking very very bare right now. Did get some L. Aromatica here on the SnS so that should be here soon to help fill everything in. I'd really like to get ahold of some blyxa and/or Downoi as well. Some erio's would be really cool if I could find em cheap.

great tank.

I wanted to get your thoughts on the Hydor Nano. You said earlier that you think you should have went with the Stage 1 instead? Why do you say that? Does the nano not move enough water around in a 29G? Im debating on either the nano or Stage 1 for my 29G but dont want it too strong to where it blows my tall plants down. Does the nano affect your plants at all?

Bump for update - 6/24/09

More cherry shrimp on the way, wishing there was more horizontal hair grass growth.

Trimming your hairgrass will encourage it to send out runners, that will poke up from the substrate within just a couple days.

Some folks suggest that regular trimming is greatly beneficial to overall hairgrass health, although I have had small clumps that do okay when left alone.

vegasMatt now lives in sanDiego. In retrospect, it was not a good username.

The tank is looking great. You've got me wanting a bigger tank with a grass field.

I'm trim it often, about every other waterchange or so. It has been sending out runners, just not enough to my liking.

clwatkins: i originally wanted to do HM, but I chose HG over the fact that I didn't have pressurized co2 at the time, so I was worried it was a worthless cause. Overall, even though I have pressurized now, i'm happy with the HG. My shrimp love picking through it, it's like a mini forest for them

wow your water looks crystal clear! Are you going to add some moss to the branches of the driftwood?
