|rainbuilder||Thanks! I'm going to be looking for a CO2 unit for it soon, and my budget is $120 so if anyone knows what I could do with that let me know.|

|rainbuilder||Still growing pretty good, but I am having some hair algae problems. Maybe it's time I start thinking about some kind of CO2...|

izabella - Thanks! I'm pretty happy with how it's turning out.
Gordon - Thanks for the great compliments! I'm going to be putting those anubias I bought from you in here.
Thinking about replacing the lace java fern with regular java fern, it really isn't fitting in with the scape quite as well as I want it to.

This is a lovely tank. It makes me rethink those hex tanks I always see up on craigslist... hmmm

|izabella87||I adore the layout !|

Just finished ordering some anubias coffeefolia and some aquascaping tools for this tank! Excited!
Everthing is still growing really well, but the hair algae is spreading and so is the utricularia gibba. Any advice on that?

I think that I'll give it a try anyway I can distract them with live foods on the top of the water, and see how they do. It's worth a try to me.
Probably gonna do an HM trim today. I went poking around and noticed that the soil is MUCH more soft where the plants are growing, which is good and means that they are getting a good amount of root growth and that the substrate is being aerated.

|kwheeler91||Angels are predators. They wont shy away from hovering about your carpet and picking out anything worth eating. I mean if you had the choice between algae flakes and cherry shrimp jumbalaya, which would you choose?|

I know that they would eat a lot of them, but there should be a lot of hiding places in the carpet and moss I intend to have in there. Those shrimp are supposed to be able to breed pretty fast so I was thinking that they might be able to sustain themselves. If they are dull or clear colored I'm hoping that they'd be able to remain hidden better or at least good enough to reproduce. I also am thinking about scuds as well to aerate the substrate.
The anubias will be attached on a large part of the right side of the biggest rock and around where the otocinclus in the above pictures is sitting on the rock on the right. I also will probably attach christmas moss or fissidens underneath them and on the roots.

|Monster Fish||The angels would most likely eat the shrimp. Where would you attach the anubias?|
|12-19-2012 12:09 AM|
Thanks! It's definitely starting to look better.
Thinking about malawa shrimp or wild type cherry shrimp once the carpet grows out and I get some of those anubias I've been wanting. Anyone have some suggestions on those?
