No algae problems! The tank gets direct sunlight only for a couple hours during the morning in the summer. The other seasons, the sun doesn't reach it. I scrape algae every 2-3 weeks, but it's a very light layer on the glass and nothing major. It's a very low light tank. I was surprised at how little algae grows, actually. I feel like I really lucked out with the position/location of it too.

Had to redo the 60g tall entirely, since I destroyed it while trying to catch the kuhli loaches for heartnet.



And here is a side shot of the 55.

Wow! Some nice tanks guys!

The grass isn't always greener in the other tank.

Great tanks everyone. We have a pretty good local scene here...

There's a few other locals that have really nice scapes/tanks. Inka(Ricky) Fat Guy... I'm sure Gordon does but he'll never post a pic!
