How do you like the ultimate setup from nilocg? I've been considering purchasing one myself. Are you still running the co2 on this tank? Did it help with the parva? Sorry for all the questions.

Some crypts have melted but not a lot, and algae is growing on the glass, this tank sits in front of a window and right now it light source is mostly sunlight.

xjasminex I added co2 to this tank, bought the ultimate setup from nilocg.
I don't know anything about co2 but I plan on learning!
I figured out how to put it together...I followed the directions on how to do the co2 drop checker but I used the 4 dkh solution instead of water. Now I have it going at a little less than 1 bps...
I hope I'm on the right track...
I'll take pics later when it gets dark!

xjasminex Thanks, I have though about it, but I plan on filling this with bright green crypts and I like the contrast of the dark wood with the green =]

I did think about maybe something right in front of the wood, something bright green, any suggestions?

bacon5 Wow really neat piece of wood! Have you thought about tying moss to it? Love all of the crypts btw

xjasminex Thanks!
The other was just to thin...I needed more for it.
I'm planning on using a pb co2 setup for a bit on this to help it fill out, then I'll take it off once its to where I want it. I'm also going to add more crypt parva in front of the crypt wendtii to help slope it, so your not seeing stems so much.

DogFish Nice! I like this scape better. Much more interesting yet, simple.

xjasminex Officially broke this tank down and moved it to a 2.5 gallon, pics to come this weekend.

xjasminex Thanks!
Im thinking about breaking this down and putting the plants in a 2.5 and maybe some of the drift wood, im moving into a different room in my house and want to make it as organized and simple as possible, that means less is more.

andrewss nice spec v

xjasminex Thanks Drift Monkey!
Im thinking I would like to plant the rest of the tank with more crypt parva and add the moss somewhere else. I also hooked up the co2 today I'm planning on filling the chambers 1-2 times per day, hoping to boost the crypt growth, helping them the c.parva to take root good and the other crypts to spread.
