I really like that driftwood, and that you have it off center in the tank.

Yes, I stand corrected. I had looked at the journal yesterday from the link, but missed the FTS from last September in post #73.

Some swords will grow too fast for the fish to do much damage to them. If your tank has some height, try getting an Amazon sword that's already about 10" tall, add a root tab when you plant, and see...

Kind of a sweeping generality isn't it?

My shrimp tank has only a sponge filter run by an air pump. Completely adequate for the bioload and not a suicide device like a HOB can be.

Since koi live so long, are you interested in more spawning? Do you sell koi?

This probably won't be real helpful to you, but the best algae fighters are lots of plants.

And if the coldwater tank is a goldfish tank, let the algae grow on the back panel. They eat it.

Anyone doing a "plant only" tank?

I did a brief search through threads and couldn't find any discussion on plant-only-no-fauna tanks.

Are you planning to plant it? I usually wrap or drape java moss on driftwood, although a lot of times it gets a mind of its own and as it grows, it migrates out through the tank.

What a hoot. I love watching them. They are very bold in comparison to the RCS. The RCS move about the tank, but the amanos march.

Although the volume is sufficient for a comet, IMO, the dimensions of your container are not. Adult comets can get a foot long with no problem. Turning around would be an issue in that container.
