Complexity Thanks, Sketch! I never did set this tank back up again, mainly because it doesn't have a lid and I have cats at my house so it would basically turn into a water dish for them. But I have been wanting another nano so maybe I'll get a lid made for it and set it back up. I do miss this little tank. And I agree, the light is wonderful!

This is going to cost you.

Hmm... got any bamboo shrimp you'd like to give me?

Complexity Oh, so sorry to not update the specifics of the tank.

It's completely empty! I started to work out a new scape, but got busy so I broke it down for the move.

I plan to get it back up soon; it just hasn't hit my priority list yet.

lauraleellbp You might try spot-treating the algae with H2O2 that the tank dosing doesn't seem to be getting.

Uh-oh....is that me being a bad influence again?! SORRY!

I can't wait to see you have a nano up and running again though, your previous one was gorgeous!

Complexity Thank you! I probably will get the nano going again because I'm looking at getting some super-red RCS, and I don't have anyplace to put them!

Oh, the joys of MTS.

fastfreddie Vicki, I hope you'll get this, or another nano tank going after you're settled back in from the move. I really enjoyed this journal.

Complexity UPDATE:

I completely let this tank go which is not a good idea for such a small tank with no ferts, no CO2, no excel, but very bright lighting. Anyone want to guess what I'm growing now?

Hair algae has completely taken over the entire tank. I saw it coming, but was so busy with my 75g that I didn't stop it. So it's taken over very badly.

I had already removed all the fish in the tank so I decided to try the H2O2 method of getting rid of the algae.

Yesterday, I did a 95% water change, removed the fine floss from the filter, and then added 5ml of H202. I let it sit with the filter running for 35 minutes. I've been keeping the lights off on that tank so when I took a look, sure enough, everything had bubbles on it. I then did a 50% water change and have kept the light off.

It hasn't been even 24 hours yet so it's hard to tell what's going to happen. Some of the algae looks like it's become floppy (laying down on the plants rather than sticking up), but there are other areas where it's still sticking up like before. So we'll see.

I took a few pictures of the algae yesterday before doing the treatment. I'll try to get them posted today, if I can.

Complexity Thanks about the ledge. I won't rescape this tank when I move (or I should say my move and rescaping of this tank don't affect each other). I'll do it whenever I get the time.

The rock ledge is just a progression from what I had already done. I couldn't keep the rocks to stay where I wanted them, so they are actually encased in a plastic mold I made. I used hot glue to hold the rocks in place.

So what I hope I can do is take the whole thing out and glue more rocks on the front side of it. Then rather than burying it in the substrate like a river, I'll use it like a retaining wall to create two depths of substrate which I hope will add to the illusion of scale.

I won't know if it'll work until I try it, but I have nothing to lose other than some time, a few rocks and burnt fingers from the hot glue!
