Thank you. I already did the first trimming and a little re-planting I added some snowball shrimp and today some micro rasbora kubotai will be added.

Have you noticed any morphing with the Rotala 'butterfly'? It's not known to be a stable cultivar and i didn't think that an ADA solar fixture would provide enough light to prevent it from changing. It looks like its doing great so far though.

Nice nano tank! I love the hakkai stone. Where did you get it?

You should consider replacing that CO2 diffuser with an in-line one. The one you have is too prominent in the tank.

I use this one on my Mini-M/2211 (but I got it from ebay for half the price). It also performs much better than a glass diffuser.

Can you explain the sugnificence of these stones? Are they from some sacred mountain?

Yes it is known to morph and change, but this strain dosen't seem to do that. It does require straight RO water, ADA step 1 , ADA brighty K, and green gain. The light is 27 watts on a 5.5 gallon, its suffient. I also have the butterfly growing in the 120P with RO and metal halide, just incase.

The Hakkai stone comes from AFA via Nature Aquarium in Santa Monica CA. Thanks for the complement.

Thank you for the link. Once the 2211 is set up ill look into it. For the moment I have an AZOO mini HOB which should be suffient with a low bioload that I plan to keep and weekly water changes.

I think they are "endangered" so they don't want any more taken.

Not sacred but extremely rare, even in Japan, and foremost beautiful. They come Hakkai mountain in Niigata Japan near the ADA headquarter/gallery

The tank now has 6 microrasbora kubotai, 5 golden bee shrimp and CBS CRS.

I have not run CO2 in this tank for two weeks and everything is fine with the exception of the rotala butterfly. Ill get the CO2 going and hopefully add a new eheim 2232 just need to go buy the lily pipes.

This is do for an update. The first pic is from a couple months back I added Microrasbora kubotai and CBS/CRS/Golden Bee mix. The butterfly was not doing so hot.



This is the current state before I trim the rotala green and belem. Still have not added a canister with lilly pipes. removed the fish becuase there are crystal babies in there. Little maintenace. It only has a small red sea hob filter and the ADA CO2 system. Top offs and water changes here and there. I do dose ADA step 1 ADA brighty, ADA green gain and fluval shrimp mineral supliment, because I use pure RO water. I dose once a week. PH is 6.4 temp 70F TDS 170 pmm. Do you see any crystal babies in the pics?
