Thanks! Looking at it now, it'll take a few trims before it fills in completely over the mesh to where I want it to be

Lol that's why you cut a piece of plexiglass to fit the top

I got 20 for like $44 shipped? Still way cheaper than my LFS

There are currently 9 in there working hard on whatever algae is left. The oto is slacking on those diatoms on the glass, might need to give him a hand

1. The carpet is getting there, slowly but surely. I wanna try and find a way to get them to grow thicker, maybe just a short period use of CO2

2. I always thought I could go on the higher side with a 2211 since the filter itself also increases the total water volume.

|Jeff's ADA Mini Fissidens Mini S| Stock suggestions?

Yea I think I might go with Boraras Maculatus with a few pygmies. The Amanos will actually be bigger than the Cories so I don't see them as a threat or a disturbance.

I'm thinking either 15 Boraras Maculatus or 10 Boraras Maculatus with a few pygmies.

Any experiences on the schooling behavior of Boraras Maculatus?

Half the clean up crew

Now:Does anyone have suggestions for livestock?! I'm thinking pygmy or habrosus cories or some micro fish. Suggestions?
Pygmy cories and rasbora maculatas get along really well, and are playful with good personalities for micro fish.

Cories though can be too active for shrimp, so if you plan on keeping the amanos, you might reconsider the cories.

Also, I don't think Amanos eat that type of algae... at least they don't in my tank.

Look forward to seeing an updated picture!

Actually though there is a good amount do growth considering there isn't any fertilizer or CO2. I did have a short algae breakout which I solved with 3 amanos and it's slowly under control now.

Some patches have suffered a bit with algae and died off a bit but generally most spots are A-Okay with growth. Slowly but surely
