My first tank

It has been almost 2 weeks and things are looking good in this tank. However there is a green spot algae problem. I reduced photoperiod from 11 hours to 8 hours and dose extra PO4. Lets see how that goes.

Some pixs

I mixed micro and macro into each of these bottles. Each spray is exactly 2.5ml. Im just lazy to do the spoon measurement in the morning.

Built by a Plantedtank for member Bettatail. The system is working great now.


I know it's not the greatest planted tank but thanks for looking. I'll post more pixs in about 6 weeks.

karce87 melting HC when first planted is normal. It needs time to take root. After that, If the condition is right, it will grow. The green algae is called green dot algae. Just use scraper or some type of card to clean it out

Just few of my HC seem to melt. Is this normal?
Attachment 80178

The rest of the HC are fine.

The front and rear glass seem to have green spots. They are really tough to clean off. Are these algae?

Trân châu cuba cần 3 điều kiện để phát triển tốt:
1. Nước phải sạch, mỗi tuần thay 30% nước hồ, kết hợp hút cặn bẩn dưới đáy.
2. Ánh sáng đầy đủ, khoảng 1w/1 lít, kết hợp co2 khoảng 3-4 giọt/ 1 giây.
3. Nhiệt độ mát, khoảng 24-25 độ C.
Chúc e có hồ đẹp nhé.

For a less "busy look" you might want to try a plain dark background. The plants and fish will "pop" more and make things look a lot neater...... Just my 2c ;-)
Im thinking of painting the tank to dark blue or black but it's hard to move things around with the water, plants and fishes already in placed. My only option is to replace film.
