Tank looks good man. Glad to see it still chugging along.

She likes to try to get the snails. Lol. And, bang on the top glass.

150EH After I looked at this I realized there were a few things I should have done to make my tank look better like, move those wires, clean the pipes, remove drop checker, & unplug the filter.

Never the less is has come a long way and I thought it was a lost cause. Look how the substrate in the middle was broken and heaved by injecting H202 into the substrate.

I love hoe green this tank is right down to the fish.

150EH I'll post some pics soon. After new year it was just embarrassing, filled with Cyanobacteria (transfered from the 150) BBA because of soft acidic water, RO & C02. But I've been working hard trimming, cleaning, H202 treatments and it's starting to look good, just a little more and all the BBA will be dead but I'll still have the white fuzz tufts everywhere for a while.

I've started using tap water to get the kH up, which helps the C02 to work easier and keeps the pH higher too, it works so well that I almost gassed my new fish the first time I got a stable kH of 3, I turned to admire my work and everyone was gasping for air, but they all made it.

cableguy69846 Hmmmm, I missed some posts. Glad to see the tank still going. It is starting to look great. Hope to see more soon.

150EH LOL, I was trying to leave my DIY out of the shot, thanks and I will.

Wet Spot packed them beautifully and they all came through alive and in good health. It really make the overnight shipping worth it, to see these fish so healthy and full of energy.

The Microdevario kubotai are very nervous but have colored up a little over the past couple hours.


These Hara minuscula "Burmese Mini Moth Cat" are a slightly different species than I wanted but they are so cool looking and have a ton of personality in such a tiny package, I think they would have be enough to make a really interesting tank without the nervous energy of the Green Rasbora.

talontsiawd Looks fabulous. Mind taking some pics with the stand/light so we can see it in full effect?

Tank Update!

The tank has filled in nicely and got the first hard trim today, new fish are in the air as I type, flown in from Wet Spot in Oregon, and I'll pick up some shrimp at our December meeting, OEBT and Yellow Neocaridina.

I need to put some wood or breeding tubes behind the rocks for hiding or maybe some oak leaves, etc.

Before


After trim, the four Ghost shrimp were going crazy finding eats after the trim.


The new fish are 3 Hara jerdoni "Dwarf Anchor Cat" which are 1.2 inches long as adults, so they are tiny.


... and 11 Microdevario kubotai "Green Rasbora" which are a half to three quarters of and inch long mature.

Really!!! Cyano again

I can't believe it but I have Cyanobacteria in this tank and I've started treating it tonight with Maracyn, This tanks has very little good bacteria and only the load 5 or 6 Ghost Shrimp can provide so it may get ugly. I used some Fissidens from my 150 and transfered the bacteria to this tank, so it's my fault and this strain has been treated several times in the 150 so I may be in trouble. I'm taking all of the pre-cautions I can, like adding the Maracyn at night in fear that light may degrade or reduce effectiveness, plus I've added 25% more than the recommended amounts, now I wait and treat for 8 days, knock on wood.

The way they guard the food is really funny. Wait till you see them with the worms. Even better.

cableguy69846 Tank looks good, and those shrimp pics are awesome. I especially dig that last one. Now you make me want ghost shrimp again.

On a side not, those shrimp will go nuts for some blood worms.

fishboy199413 Coming along nicely. (:

Finally!!!

Finally I got the generation III heater/reactor combo installed without any leaks, it was gluing on a wide collar with silicone and letting it cure before you start the build that made the difference and no Heyco fitting required, besides they leaked.

I also made some clear lily pipe bent up to my specific needs and they do make the tank look less cluttered, at least when they are new and clean.

150EH Cable, I'm sorry they aren't better quality but you can see a little detail. I'm finding these shrimp are a blast to watch, they run as soon as food hits the water and then they carry it away and guard it like a dog, they are also starting to eat a lot of algae on my every other day feeding routine.



They seem to have a slit in the eye that makes them look a little funny
