I have flatworms, daphnia, cyclops, and various thin nematode type worms in my tanks and I have never seen any sign that any of them are anything but harmless. Without fish a lot of the little...

As soon as I saw you were using MDF for the canopy, I was like, uh oh. MDF can't even be touched by moisture or it bubbles, rots, and just generally comes apart. When you remake that canopy try...

The best way to diffuse CO2 is with a little pump powered cyclone diffuser as far as I know. I guess you could also buy one of those in-line CO2 diffusers but they are rather expensive. It can be...

I am loving that driftwood. The only thing I would do is add some smaller rocks to balance out those large ones and then start buying plants!!

As soon as you said no CO2 the thing that popped into my head, was uh oh, I already see problems. In a tank this big you can have success without CO2 but it will be more difficult. I suggest going...

No, not really. It is basically the same routine on a smaller scale. The only thing I do differently with a nano is that I mostly only add trace ferts instead of the whole NPK + trace routine. I...

Depending on the size of your tank, pressurized CO2 may be overkill. I would say if your tank is 30 gallons or under you just don't need it. Yeast setups work fine. For larger tanks if you are...

I would recommend the use of a Milwaukee PH controller as well, since with pressurized CO2 it is possible to wipe out your tank if you don't keep an eye on the PH.
For me, I had the CO2 tank and...

God, that is terrible. I had a cat that wouldn't leave my CO2 line behind the tank alone and eventually chewed a hole in it which caused my PH to jump from 6.5 to 8.0. All of my green shrimp were...

This would be my guess as well. Fine grained substrate like sands are more likely to have sulfide buildup, especially if it is deep or your plants aren't dense enough to oxygenate it. Not only...

I agree with spyke. There are a lot of small non-jumpy fish that could work in that tank. I am inclined to always have some sort of shrimp in my tanks, so snowballs also sound like a good idea. ...

I'd love to see an update on this tank after it is fully grown in. I'd also love to know if that 24w light is enough to grow the glosso. Are you having any problems with it growing vertically?

There is still a lot of tweaking you could do, depending on what you want out of the tank, but I think it is already a huge improvement over where you started.
