do you have any algae eaters at all guppyy? I just recently got 2 patches of HC and my SAE's in one tank have eaten it all, and my amanos in my other tank ate most of it there.

Tanks:

50g
10g

Nope. Nano's are harder to maintain.

thanks for saying that... that was the biggest thing that i thought right away.

also for pics. if it isnt too hard just take it out. it will look much better!

/off topic
as for the "i wish i did nano first" no you dont it is more expensive and harder per gallon than say a 10g tank i personally think 10g is best starter size.
/back on topic

the tank does look very good though. esp. with the ADA rocks.

that's one great looking plakat, i bet he appreciate the aquascaping too.

silly question but what does HC stand for. I'm looking for a good foreground plant and i currently have glosso and they're's still too tall for my 5 gallon. So i think that the HC would be great but i don't know anything about them....yet.

thanks alot

HC=Hemianthus callitrichoides
Its just his temporary home until he is a little older. I am thinking of getting some Boraras sp. whatever I can get a hold of and maybe adding a few cherry shrimp.

In my 2g, I dose excel, and while I find that the plants grow quite well, I find the lack of pearling dissatisfying... Would you care to share your recipe for yeast and sugar concentrations?

The only thing I measure is the sugar I use one cup and I have a container with yeast in it and I take a big pinch out of it and thats it.

Heres one you can try to replicate that works very well.
Recipe:
Use a 2L soda bottle.
1. 2 Cups of Sugar
2. 1/4-1 teaspoon of yeast (more yeast = faster reaction = more CO2 for shorter time (2+ weeks))
3. 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda (optional)
