GMYukonon24s Beautiful tank!

poppyseed It's been a while. I largely ignored this tank after a couple failed attempts with shrimp and CO2. I will no longer attempt that combo except for maybe with cherries.

Excuse the lackluster appearance of some of the plants.

Sorry.. realized this was blurry.

Acrylic lid for the new inhabitant, Sir Galahad.

poppyseed Before Trim/Cleanup:


This view looks pretty much the same, except for there is less downoi due to some initial melting.. Hoping it will settle in now.

The algae that sticks to my UG/gravel. It pulls the UG up when I try to suck it out .

And a different view just because not much has changed and this update feels boring.

I bleached the heck out of my driftwood because the amount of BBA on it was making me uncomfortable. Don't mind the rock weighing it down.

I tried the LFS today. All they had was one lonely CRS and not even any cherries. Guess I'll try ordering them from a member (it's cheaper anyway).

poppyseed Thanks guys, I'm thinking about going to the LFS tomorrow to see what they have for shrimp. I might just be picking up cherries for my walstad bowl, but we'll see. I have some planaria in this aquarium that have so far survived my doses of "no planaria." I also have this algae that is really pissing me off and wants to suffocate my UG.

I'll try and take pics tomorrow.

chrislewistx Hi there,

How is your Metaframe tank doing? I love these stainless steel frame tanks. Did you end up getting any shrimp?

Archaea 36w fixture
pressurized CO2

3 Ottos
1 betta

UG (had some trouble with this before, we'll see how this goes)
staurogyne repens

some other ones I can't remember off the top of my head!

Waiting to see how it grows in.
