|Jahn||Thanks! Taking out so many floaters and plant cover meant more light so the algae tried to come back. I lowered the PAR so the algae won't take hold.|

|Dantrasy||You've got some stunning fish there mate!|

|HunterX||Love the video and the tank. It really looks great! Keep up the good work.|

|Jahn||Wow has it really already been a month? No news is good news since everything is stable, no fish deaths and no algae outbreaks. Had to trim a lot plants recently, and scoop out a bunch of floaters. Lot less jungle like in there now. Happy new year!|

First Father & Kids Tank - 20 High - 12/7/13 video update! New Lambchop Rasbora!
Thanks all! The kids really dig it now. Here's a video - they are shoaling with the Celestial Pearl Danio!

They look great and so does the tank

|Jack Gilvey||Killer tank, and those rasbora are amazing.|

Me and the kids stopped by Pacific today and in an ebi tank was 5 rasbora. But not the typical Harlequin Rasbora - these were Lambchop Rasbora! I was hoping to get these type if they didn't have Chili Rasbora - my son likes the color, and I think the swoop in the back is pretty stylish. They should end up being bigger than the neon tetra but smaller than the emperor tetra. But right now they are the same size as the celestial pearl danio, hah. Got five since they like to shoal together and hang out near the top. Here they are back at home!

Pulled a bunch of val and amazon sword leaves from the tank - looked like a jungle in there! The seachem matrix is doing a great job - right before the weekly water change, it shows as 10ppm, not the 40ppm that killed the rams. The new honey gourami is still going strong and loving the better water parameters!
Funny thing is that the wisteria died off. i guess less nitrate means less for the nitrate suckers. oh well, would rather have less wisteria than dying fish!

No changes in nitrate reduction yet, but it should take a few weeks i heard. In the meantime, the CO2 really has helped the plants explode, and this - NO BLACK ALGAE. Yes! The plants have outcompeted the algae! Thanks to the ratio of CO2 to light being more in favor of CO2 than I had before. Even the floating plants have exploded - the tetra can't keep up with eating their roots anymore, and they've spread very nicely across the top!

Ah good to know. I actually have an unopened jar of denitrifier here now as a result, I guess it's usable then to go with the aquaclear 30 I have now as a backup (replaced with a fluval C4).
Funny thing is, I did all the impeller tricks to quiet it, but it still seems to be a bit louder to me than the AC30. But hey, nobody else round here seems to mind the noise, and it's not near the bedrooms so no worries.

|acitydweller||Hi, i have both matrix and denitrate and the media seems to be the same. the granuals are slightly different in size but im feeling its almost the same media.|
