I think the distinguishing factor in my algae breakout is that I didn't have a good light/CO2 balance to begin with. That and through my many purchases of plants, I must have introduced the BBA. The...

Thanks for your reply bpizzuto. If I'm not mistaken, those are more for aesthetic lighting than lighting used to grow plants, is that correct?

Fully Submersible Light Fixtures

I've got a friend that's doing a complicated build with turtles and a cordoned off area for a healthy little planted section. Because of the design, however, the only way to get light over that area...

Yes, but to a lesser degree for planted tanks. Whether you absolutely need a filter will be a function of the amount of flora you have and the proportion of flora to fauna. Erring on the side of...

I ended up getting a few stems to try it out. It does look a little large but I think if positioned well in the back, it'll do great. Thanks for the responses!

Has anyone considered Alternanthera Reineckii 'Mini'?

15G is pretty good size - not sure if it's a nano. Alternanthera Reineckii 'Mini' would work nicely at about 4-6" tall.

Although experiences vary, you really need to be on top of DIY or have a more intricate setup that I did. The problem with CO2 is that unbalanced amounts can potentially wreck your tank by letting...

Yea, and those numbers are from Finnex and they grab readings prior to filling the tanks. So it's probably even lower.

DHG would be a good addition to the tank. It'll give you more coverage without killing the river scape you initially had intended for.

Good choice!

Alternanthera Reineckii 'Mini' suitable for 5g Nano?

Trying to get an idea of how big it grows. It looks great!

I have a 5G nano that could use a bit more color to it.

Thanks!

The stock filter seems more than adequate. It delivers the CO2 uniformly to about 90% of the tank, but that probably also has to do with the GLA atomic diffuser I'm using.

So I attempted the light for a few of reasons:

The dwarf pencil fish in there larger than the <1" that they're listed to grow to be. Is that just an illusion at work?

I'm considering these for my 17" long Fluval Spec V!
