Well, the cause of the algae is simply that there is more light in the tank. I've added quite a few new plants as well, so as soon as they get rooted and comfy the amount of algae should drop as they...

Multiple Otos in a 9 gallon?

I currently have a decently high-tech set up for a modified Eheim Aquastyle 9. I'm using the Archaea 30cm light about 5 inches from the surface turned on for 8 hours a day, combined with CO2 at 1bps....

I'm loving how thick the growth is in this tank! When did you say you were getting the co2 started?

This is still my favorite tank. One day, I want to set one (though probably a 24x24x12 of these up in my office, but I just have to convince the mister it's a good idea. I can't believe the growth...

30L Tank, keeping it simple

So, firstly, when I say keeping it simple, I mean I plan on keeping plant types and fish types to a minimum. This way I can focus on the plants and fish that seem to do well in my incredibly hard...

Ah! Gotcha. Okay, I'd still recommend the 1/3 dose 3 days a week simply because the plants will go through a full dose in 4-5 days or so. Doing 1/3 doses, means the plants will still break it down...

I just want to make sure I understand what you're asking:

Right now you are dosing 1/3 of your regular dose 3 days a week, rather than one full dose once a week?

My thought would be if you could mix that in with dried clay to essentially make slow-decaying compost balls, similar of those from stores (but better because you know what goes into them!).

So, I have a question for you all:

I had been running an Eheim 2215 on a 29-gallon aquarium for roughly 5 months. Due to some circumstances with the tank (got it used from a friend this way)...

I love the color balance between the seiryu stone and the substrate. The layout is fantastic. Are going to let the plants take over the whole bottom, or keep some of that gorgeous substrate showing?

I didn't realize the filter was strong enough to harm a shrimp, especially an amano shrimp. I'll keep that in mind should I ever introduce some to mine.

Good looking tank. I'm looking forward to...
