So here are some updates and pics. I finally got the DIY co2 to work, except I made it with a 600ml bottle to match my nano in size. It's ugly as hell, but it does the job.
A shot of my lonely platy fry with the diy co2 tubing, as well as algae
My FAKE pygmy corydora, aka Aspidoras Pauciradiatus
Glosso that is growing both horizontally and vertically at the same time. (with algae)
Another shot of glosso sprouting some roots and leaves
FTS (BTW the micro sword is finally sending out runners!)
Just ONE problem now, I got f***** brown algae
in my beautiful planted nano! It started on the micro sword, so I did a blackout and a water change. But now it's on my glosso, the sides and even on the surface! What do I do to get rid of it? I've tried cleaning off the sides, blackouts and water changes. Should I try one of those algae killing chemicals?
