Well, this tank has had some major ups and downs ever since it's setup but here's a current FTS. I've been having some issues with rhizoclonium, hair algae, and cyano bacteria. I cut back on the light a lot and bumped up the CO2 quite a bit.
Also, with the help of Orlando, i converted the cartridge CO2 regulator into a paintball regulator. I'm very happy that i went this route because it's much more economical. It's a 24oz tank and it's still going strong after over a month of use, whereas the cartridges would last me 2 weeks if i was lucky.
I plan to get hairgrass for the back and HC for the carpet.
I have 14 diamond head neon tetras (i know, a little overload-- might give a few to my teacher for her mini-M) and 2 scarlet badis in this tank. I will be adding 12 yellow shrimp soon.
