Beautiful tank! I am about to order the same tank and also would like to place it on a sofa table. Iwould really appreciate it if you could include a few photos of your setup from a distance. Would also like to know which lilly pipes from ebay you're using as I recently posted about this in the Equipment section.

I was mostly successful with the algae wars. I ended up dosing Excel to get rid of the thread algae, and there's just ever so little BBA starting to show up on the rocks. But I've been dosing with RootMedic for quite a while, and the growth has been just staggering. Maybe too much growth at times!
Until I get some full tank shots on the computer, here's a couple of the right side I took to try to sell some peacock moss. No bites yet...

|fish-n-pups||very nice layout! I really love the manzanita and the sand in the middle!|

|Solid||This tank is sweet! Love the hard scape. Hope you can deal with the algae. It should go away once everything balances and ages.|

|Cynth||I really like the size and look of this tank. As others have said and I will say again the stump is perfect in this tank. Hope your algae clears up soon!|

|VadimShevchuk||Maybe you should take out the needle fern and put in blyxa japonica. I have a lot of stems of it so if i go to Syracuse sometime, i can meet up and give you some stems...|

I spent a long time looking for the right hardscape. Got lucky with that stump.

|mattycakesclark||That tank size is amazing!! How much did the tank and light run you, I might have to copy you when funds exist!|

|VadimShevchuk||Beautiful tank so far. Did you use up all of the amazonia or did you have leftovers? I really love that tree and i hope i can find something like that for my tank. Off to a great start and nice to see a local too.|

|tlef316||Great tank. It looks WAY larger than a 12 gallon. Love it.|

|El Funko||I'm not real crazy about the narrow leaf java fern that's behind the stump. It's just too tall for this short tank. There are some melted crypt wendtii on the left side, and in the back corner that will come back (and may be too big when they do). If I remove the java fern, what could go in its place? I'm thinking tenellus... Opinions?|

|MrJG||Hang in there with the hair algae. It seems to be the one I get during almost every "new" tank setup. Once things settle in it should subside... granted having the light on for an extra 8 hours didn't help!|

Today I performed a thorough cleaning of the tank, trying to get as much algae off as I could during the draining of the tank. I was also sick of the hugely long roots on the frogbit, so I enlisted my 6 year old daughter to help me trim them all.
Still cycling, ammonia's down to .5 ppm, 0 nitrites/nitrates.
Left Side, with stump - showing the shortened frogbit roots:
Still lots of algae as you can see... I'm just biding my time until I can get cycled and add ferts. Some algae eaters won't hurt either...
That's all for today. Hopefully next pics will include FISH!
