Sweet looking tank, and I'm digging the plant selection. I take it you have the patience of a saint? I don't think I could wait long enough to have decent cover by the erios and buces. I have a buce in my 2.5 and I've had success (relatively) growing it, unburied and while under 15 watts/gallon, it is growing underneath some overhangs which gives it low to medium lighting. Best of luck!

Thanks. I have no patience but when you have kids, time flies really quick, and next thing you know, your plants have grown in.

So I entered this guys contest.......

He was just looking for a "clean" tank and promoting his channel I guess.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0M_p...e_gdata_player

I like watching youtube vids of peoples tanks. Specially when it's in HD.

Been a while since I made a video. Way more difficult then I remember and it still looks like a 8th graders project....lol.

Been having algae problems. Switching over to RO water purchased from my local grocery store. Gonna do water changes once a week. I also removed a light bulb making it only 13w x 8 hours. Trying to get things under control. I think I may just dose K+ only. Haven't tested water parameters, I don't even have a kit. Therefore, I can't ask for suggestions on fertilizer regimens....lol. I just gotta cross my fingers and monitor closely. I'm hoping softer water will help my erio and buces. Wish me luck and Happy Holidays everyone.

Just changed the water and cleaned up a bit....

Yup. Had to due to time constraints. I'm thinking of doing a riparium with it in the future.

Crypt, how's this tank going? What are your thoughts after owning it for a while, was the lighting too strong?

Tank was nice. Light system a bit cumbersome and hot. Very high light for my plants at the time resulting in some algae problems. Tank has been shut down for some time now. I consolidated all my nanos into my 12 gal long. All in all, not bad for the price.
