Your rams must have bigger mouths than mine, or you have smaller earthworm sticks than Ken's.

Dwarf Gourami is ok, but they tend to just hide all the time. Sometimes they'll come out and harass the tetras, who proceed to hide, so you rarely see them out, except at feeding time...

Eco is fine for a substrate. You can add plants from the start. It's fish that need to be held back until the tank cycles.

A pair of Rams in a small tank like this is pushing it, so I'd hesitate...

Sounds pretty impressive, xtremebassist, but for me, I'm happy with keeping this as a simple cross-fading timer that fits in a small, compact case. If I was starting from scratch, I'd be interested...

Thanks! Yes, I've been very impressed with how fast it filled in, and I love the look. I just hope it doesn't completely take over!

I'll see if I can snap a photo tonight, as the tank is due for a little maintenance anyway. :)

That's some impressive DHG with only Excel and Flourish, under the stock lights. Very difficult to pull off.

Good call. I've wanted killifish for a long time, they're gorgeous (nice shots, btw!) but they're not really compatible with my topless rimless tanks. :)

Long time no update! Sadly, I did lose the remaining RCS, some time ago. I decided to just let the tank stabilize for a new months before trying to add more. The nerite snails and Amanos are doing...

Seriously? Have you looked at any of the photos in this thread? Are you suggesting I don't have enough plants in my tank?!?

I can't recall if I ever posted my code. Works well in the original IDE (1.0.5 or 1.0.6), but mine is modified for the Sat+ instead of the Ecoxotic. I have two of them up and running, one at home,...

Easy, slow growing, low care plants are great to start with. Think Anubias and Java ferns. Then go from there! Maybe some Crypt Parva?

The stock light is very low output, so unless you upgrade...

Gorgeous setups, very nicely done!

Be careful with your killifish, however, since you have no lids on your tanks. They're known jumpers. Good luck!

Hard to say the exact spread. You're likely to get some higher PAR than before where the two lights overlap the most. I'd say give it a shot at 75%, and if you start noticing any issues in the...

Very impressive work! I look forward to seeing it all come together.

That's a slick collection of auto-dosers in the cabinet underneath. What are you dosing with them?

You might pull apart the motor to check your impeller and see if it needs cleaning, or if it's worn. Replacement impellers for the AC20 filters are fairly inexpensive, IIRC. That's the only real...
