acejohn Plants looks so healthy! Maybe those deworming pills helped with the plants in a way. LOL

bluestems wow, it looks really good! I've been having a ton of algae issues too since getting a new high-light fixture. It's helped to reduce the photoperiod to just 7 hrs, but then I like to see the fish. I'm seriously considering going back to my medium-light desk top lamp, and seeing that hc is growing fine for you, I'm REALLY tempted to give up the aquasky!

khima So I rid my tank of the hydra shortly after posting the picture by using a tiny piece of de-worming pills for dogs from petco lol. The substrate was ADA if I remember correctly. My CO2 tank ran out over 3 months ago and I never decided to get it replaced, after taking down my salt water tank I was depressed about my tanks and just let it go... Topping it off with sink water and watching the algae go crazy. I finally about a month ago decided to do a nice water change with RO water and now top it off regularly after my cat drinks from it lol. This is what it looks like now with almost no help from me/ no CO2/ no chemicals. It's also completely algae free and I dropped a beta in :]

iRun First, beautiful bowl. What substrate(s) are you using? Any pros/cons about the substrate you selected?

creepy. and self-multiplying!
also, they're cnidarians (like jellyfish), so they have the characteristic stinging cells. find a (shrimp-safe) way (searching the forum should do it) to get rid of them before you get shrimp, if you haven't already- i think people have had problems with them stinging/killing/eating shrimps (or at least babies).

khima the deco art filter has a plastic level attached to the pump, so after i adjusted it, it fits level. And I bought it at an aquarium store in san jose(dolphin pet village)

acitydweller I have the same bowl from tj maxx. I've been looking for a filter that would work with a cylinder shaped tank. Do you mind me asking where you found the art deco filter? I came across the azoo palm filter as well but i didnt know if there would be enough clearance on the filter body and intake pipe to mount on the curved edge.

Does the filter sit level or is it tilted?

inka4041 Looks great! I love that you opted to keep the wood free of mosses. Definitely adds a nice contrast to the java fern in the background.
