Kinda odd thing that's happening to 1 piece of branch... it's getting white fuzz all over it. No worries cause I got a pack of amanos ready dispatch upon it. Otherwise, the plants have fluffed up and are looking nicer now.

Could you define a "good crew"?

It looks nice and clean Nick, I'm sure it will look really great after the plants fill in after all you do seem to have the touch when it comes to scapes.

Amano skrimps, a few cories or dwarf chain loachs, some otos, and a few pitbull plecos. If you can get your hands on L182 cats, those are sick too.

Thanks you sir!
Loaches and cities won't work since the flora max has some sharp edges which I should've considered before using it.

I plan to use mostly otos and Amanos since they eat more as they get larger.

Sick angels bro.

Awesome tank, Nick. Really jealous of all of you in California sometimes, what with all your fantastic LFS and such. We have Florida Aquatic Nursery over here but given the stock in local stores you'd think Florida was barren.

Anyway, subscribed!

Try some nerite snails they usually get rid of the white fuz on driftwood. I take it you mean that like clear gooey stuff that is on new pieces?

...but then they spam your driftwood and rocks with thousands of insoluble white eggs.

Really nicely done scape. I'm sorry if this has been covered but I'm curious to know how high above your tank your Tek is hung? Also, do you run all the bulbs (4?) the entire photo period? Have you checked the par at the height you have it? Sorry for all the questions, but I'd like to know because I have the same fixture and size tank and just want to get an idea what someone with a similar setup is doing.
Thanks,
John
