frrok Some changes. Not quite a re-scape. Pulled all the micranthemum umbrosum. And added some more crypt petchii. Also, the hemianthus micranthemoides has just taken off. It's really nice. It is due for a trim tho. Just haven't had the time for maintenance on this tank. Still have some GSA and GDA but it's not that bad. And easy to maintain. I'm thinking if filling in the background with more HM and trim off a lot of the crypt leaves since they have GSA on them. Also, I picked up some tissue culture plants from petco, it's labeled "crypt wendtii green" but it looks more like parva to me. It's still in the process of establishing itself to the tanks parameters so well see how it grows out. It's a slow grower. I dose excel every week or twice week and I think it's helping out the HM. Enjoying this tank a lot. Still has a bit to go as to what I'm envisioning.

Any update on how the growth is with the new light? I'm thinking about a similar setup.

Thanks! I agree about the blue. I think it may have contributed to my algae issues as well. But I have no scientific evidence about that. Just a hunch.

Ahh, yeah, I can spot it. The old light had a very "cold" look, this new one is much nicer!

Either way, looking good frrok!

frrok Well. I ordered the fugeray -R clip on light for this tank. I'll report back on growth and let you know. I'm hoping the addition of reds will help with growth.

somewhatshocked You should check out some other cube journals for lighting options. I use a Fugeray on one of my 25cm cubes.

Heaters are something you shouldn't go cheap on. $50 will buy a top of the line heater that is less likely to fail than a cheap, rebranded import.

You can definitely do something nice and top of the line for $150.
