|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?|

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....

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.

|amphirion||Sweet looking tank, and I'm digging the plant selection. I take it you have the patience of a saint? I don't think I could wait long enough to have decent cover by the erios and buces. I have a buce in my 2.5 and I've had success (relatively) growing it, unburied and while under 15 watts/gallon, it is growing underneath some overhangs which gives it low to medium lighting. Best of luck!|

|Green_Flash||oh thank you. nice plants indeed.|

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)

the erios is the plant in the front right yeah?
what is the background plant with the needle like leaves? some type of ludiwiga?
I like the river rock look.

|andrewss||I reaaaally like this scape... what are you planning as far as fauna goes?|

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.
