I was cleaning my tanks tonight and felt in the mood to take pictures. HC is doing okay. I just hope it strarts hugging the ground more and soon. Had to brush off some brown algae off my rocks with a toothbrush. I love this tank. Even though this is an older model ADA Mini M, I love having it. The ADA Solar Mini is so classy looking. Can't believe I didn't get one of these earlier in life......lol.
The first pic shows off my three tanks. I broke down my other two eheims to make way for these bad boys. My middle tank, my Eheim Aquastyle 6, has become a temporary nursery for the time being.
Tried to get different angles. No one ever accused me of being a good photographer....lol.
Mini update: seeing is believing! I used to scrub my rocks every other day to get rid of the unsightly brown algae. Added an oto and 2 red cherry shrimp and my algae growth on the rocks are near none existent. Adding dry K+ daily for now and will adjust fert regimen when needed. I think I'll be "mowing the lawn" soon. CO2 is temporarily placed there cause I thought it disperesed better. Only phone pic today:
Trimmed last week. Growth is moderate. I'm happy with the look so far. Been dosing K+ 2x/wk. Switching from tap to RO water purchased from my local grocery store. Gonna do water 50% water change once per week. Just want to see if it makes things better. I have no idea what my tap water parameters were but I like the idea of RO water. I just do.
