stanzzzz Thanks ovt, once ur plants are set the soil remains intact I guess never had problem with slope, I think plants root keep them intact.

OVT This bowl is still badass and the slope + driftwood position is pretty novel. How do you keep the slope stable?

Do say HI to downunder for me - I miss that place.

stanzzzz @AGUILAR3yea i will try soon and will let you know.on a side note i love the chilli rasboras and dwarf rasboras they showl together all the time. I think they are the best for nano aquarium..@thelub i heard abt clown kilies before but TBH mine never jumped even when i had 4 of them they never seemed to jump.i guess they only jump if they are startled but in my bowl there was nothing to get startled. Even my otto is relaxed

thelub Be careful with those clowns. They like to jump. And they can jump far for their little size.

AGUILAR3 Yeah, heard it's a miracle cure for all types of algae. Next time I get algae, I'm going to give it a shot.

stanzzzz thanks bud, i was thinking of spraying H2o2 a small amount. heard its good to remove most algae but had to be real careful.

AGUILAR3 Thanks for the update. Glad it's still alive and kicking.

As far as your algae issue, try raising the light a few inches and see if that helps. I went from having surface algae with a light 6" above the water line to none at 8".

stanzzzz Been a long while i updated anything, been very busy with RL. update to my bowl is my initial shrimps were all dead, then lost interest and gave 2 clown killies to my mate and kept 2. one of them died soon and 1 clown is still alive and kicking.I always wanted to see if an otto can live happily. so bought an otto fish an year ago and he is still alive and kicking. straight after that introduced 13 dwarf rasboras and till now they are all alive and kicking. the mistake i made was i never put any heater and the place where i live can get extremely cold in winter. I think the main reason that my fishes and shrimps died was due to fluctuation in water temp. So bought a small heater and then introduced my otto and rasboras and none of them died till now. I could be wrong but that's what i could think of. and also mybowl has matured. still got plenty of algae and i recently added a filter(2 weeks ago). i think my otto love his algae so never bothered doing any treatments. i havejust uploaded a video in you tube. will try to put the link here.

AGUILAR3 The driftwood position combined with the slope is mind blowing.
