The cal aqua nano lily pipes is a little pricy but probably fit the best. I was lucky to buy it used off a member here.

Yeah I'm not going to lie the mounting points aren't perfect (intake sits loooow) but I had an extra suction cup and clip that I used to make it work

I really enjoy this video. Cute how the shrimps are chasing each other. Lovely setup too. Thanks for sharing Andrew!

I did take some advice though and I moved the diffuser again. Originally I tried to do that but for whatever reason it didn't work out. Looks like it is actually diffusing the CO2 with the flow of the water this time. I also reduced the photoperiod to eight hours. It was previously set to about 12. Ha ha ha!

8 hours is definitely the better way to go. It took me awhile when I had my 12 to adjust the lighting and photo-period to have the HC grow properly. The thing I don't like about HC though is once it catches on with algae, its nearly impossible to get rid of it all unless you pull out that whole infected area. That's my experience at least

Yeah I've had to develop a dual-tong approach and hold the patch down with one set while I pull with the other. So far so good though

Default my 12 gallon long tear down

So, my planted tank I posted about on page 51, the one featured in Tropical Fish Hobbyist, got an algae outbreak, so I tore it down. But I've turned into a nano reef. Here are a couple pics:

Update on the tank, added a bunch of new baby tears and some anubias, plus some new hardware. Check out the journal in my signature for some more shots and info!

It's a slow start. I've finally sold my fluval edge last night. I took a big lost on it but oh well, I finally have the counter space to put in.

I plan on a lava rock base, amazonia cap, DIY, lilly pipes, seiryu stones, and just a small handful of plants. perhaps some riccia and HYDROCOTYLE VERTICILLAT to balance out the center.
