CryptKeeper54 Tank was nice. Light system a bit cumbersome and hot. Very high light for my plants at the time resulting in some algae problems. Tank has been shut down for some time now. I consolidated all my nanos into my 12 gal long. All in all, not bad for the price.

bitFUUL Crypt, how's this tank going? What are your thoughts after owning it for a while, was the lighting too strong?

Yup. Had to due to time constraints. I'm thinking of doing a riparium with it in the future.

CryptKeeper54 Been having algae problems. Switching over to RO water purchased from my local grocery store. Gonna do water changes once a week. I also removed a light bulb making it only 13w x 8 hours. Trying to get things under control. I think I may just dose K+ only. Haven't tested water parameters, I don't even have a kit. Therefore, I can't ask for suggestions on fertilizer regimens....lol. I just gotta cross my fingers and monitor closely. I'm hoping softer water will help my erio and buces. Wish me luck and Happy Holidays everyone.

Just changed the water and cleaned up a bit....

CryptKeeper54 So I entered this guys contest.......

He was just looking for a "clean" tank and promoting his channel I guess.

I like watching youtube vids of peoples tanks. Specially when it's in HD.

Been a while since I made a video. Way more difficult then I remember and it still looks like a 8th graders project....lol.

Best of luck!
Thanks. I have no patience but when you have kids, time flies really quick, and next thing you know, your plants have grown in.

Thanks. I love those anubias... they just look awesome in almost any planted nano tank.

Green_Flash oh thank you. nice plants indeed.

andrewss gotcha... those puffers are pretty cool

however I was thinking, given the stream/river look of the tank, a group CPD's would look pretty sweet (they remind me of river trout)

Thanks. I got a pea puffer in there for now, and an oto. Very entertaining little guy and the oto is keeping my pebbles free of diatom algae. You can see him against the red filter in that 2nd to last pic posted. Not sure if I'm gonna change the fauna. Still debating.

I like the river rock look.
Yes...Eriocaulon kimberly. Didiplis diandra is what I was told. Mini pelia also on the branchwood in a few spots. Hoping they grow in nicely.

CryptKeeper54 Quick update: added some h.micranthemoides and m.umbrosum to background (can't see, small and behind branchwood). Unfortunately, my erio and buces (see above pic for reference. One buce new leaf grew while majority of the leaves just melted away) don't seem to be fairing well but I'm hoping they will pull through. In retrospect, I think I would have matured this tank with cheaper plants, then add nicer and more costly plants. Had to batte some algae, and continue to do so but things are getting a little better. At least I think they are. Anyways, phone pics:





On the flipside, at least my nanas petite are flourishing and not getting attacked by green spot algae.
