Left the plants go WAY to long without a trim. Did a monster weed killing trim.
Moving things around the top tank is now all Philippine Blue Smokey Veils.
Still Double Dark on the bottom.
One of these guys won a photo contest last month for me.
The prize was 8 more angel fish for my tanks LMAO!
BUT they are 8 fish with genetics I haven't had before including glitter and albino phenotypes. (for another thread being in another tank )

|wkndracer||Hi trouble, Thinking once you clear the fines out of the water column you'll get more run time without cleaning. The Marineland 660R is slightly larger (I think) than the maxi jet 400's used on most of my tanks. When they quit throwing bubbles I clean the sponge but it's not often as I don't feel bothered by it. Even done every 2 weeks it's easy.|

Mike, I expect an update or I'll package up a box of tiger mosquitoes and have your lovely wife release them on you after you fall asleep.
Also, how do you keep your powerhead from clogging with the mulm in your sponge? Mine crawled to a standstill, I cleaned it out and it's doing it again not even a week later. It's a Marineland 660R and I've never had an issue with my aquaclear, but I'm using that on my 15 or I'd switch over. Any tips oh master of using simple filtration?

|fishboy199413||How are the tanks doing? Your tanks really show what a low tech tank can look like. Love your tanks and ideas.|

Thank you for documenting this; It was a fantastic read.
I'm very impressed with this entire setup.

now that's trouble
based on the frog method my 18'MTV w/2.5 modified Merc made me a big frog in a little pond .
that's a big frog in any pond.

Nice tanks. I have built a few "water toys" I HATE winter.
