Looking good. I agree I would have placed some stones on the right side also. What is the plant that is on the rock.

Yeah. I have since gotten rid of the unzan. Unless you have a larger tank and multiple stones there are only a few ways-one that frank did already with two... the plant was hygro pinnitifida

Re: Mini M AquaSky build thread!!

In terms of algae what is the cause of hair algae on my glosso? I'm at 1bps co2, 10hr lights, and one pump of each brighty k and step one. Perhaps raise co2?

So I see a few things that could cause the hair algae. Weak flow, too much light, and too little CO2. I would turn up the flow of the CO2 a little bit (if you have a drop checker it would help you know where you stand), reduce the photoperiod to 8 hours, and get a filter with more flow.

Ill up co2 cutting lights isn't an option... the shipment from ada is even later than original so the vuppa is flow until I get es300

Chugging along... finally have the rest of plants and algae getting in check. Upped co2 from .5bps to 2bps. Fish are fine and algae is slowly going away while my glosso has started to grow again. Once I get tripod I will continue with weekly photos to log the growth over x amount of time. Also will be adding 7 neon tetras tomorrow.

Are you shooting for a style like the Mini M in the ADA view videos? Glosso carpet, rotala sp green and that other plant in a 3:2 balance?

Not enough light probably?
Trying to get as much light as possible.

Or filter pushing them?

When Rotala grows sideways it's usually because of too much light. However, it's not a big problem, just keep up with your trimmings and you should have a nice thick bush in no time!
Good luck, I can't wait to see how this one turns out!
