And for the cleaning crew, 3 oto's, and probably a dozen or two PFRs.

Nice video! Yes, we need some fishes now! (and get rid of the ugly filter intake!)

Otos are nice, they are my favorite algae eater! I dun have much experience with killies but they do look very nice schooling.

Hey what about a pair of dario dario? Very interesting fish but I bet killies are fast eater and wont leave much food for the slow dario dario

hehe, okay. I'll add them in a week or two. Going on a trip back home to Hawaii for a week and then back.

YESS, Im patiently waiting for my Lily Pipes to come in from Asia..
1 month, well more like 2 weeks now.

Hopefully soon

Heres the identical model thats slowly making its way to the US.

I'll stick with my Lamp Eye Kilis since they were so difficult to acquire..

Default Day 10

Day 10.

I will be gone for 1 week, headed to Hawaii to attend my grandpas funeral. Hope that the timers hold up to their job *fingers crossed*

Lily Pipes, from far away China, should hopefully be in by the time I get back.

All I observe is plants are finally becoming established and throwing down roots.



Thanks for viewing and god bless!

Looking good! the brighter the light, the more dense the s.repens will grow. i found this to be the case in one of two tanks. In the low tech medium tank, the stems were longer inbetween the leaves.

See ya when you get back!

Default Day 21 - Lamp Eye Killifish Added



Finally added some fish in.

Got back from my trip and only growth I noticed was from Blyxa and DHG. Looks like Downoi melted some older leaves and the newer leaves are looking brighter lime green. Seems like the high light may be the cause of it.
Again, I need to find a hanging kit to lower the amount of PAR. For now, hoping that the added frog bit & salvinia will help shade out some of the light for now..
CO2 is still being blasted, keeping the drop checker at yellow, light is being kept at 5 hours a day.

Lily Pipes should be in anytime now, cant wait for it!

The additional lamp eye's are looking good 6 inside for now. Very green tank.

thanks for viewing!

Default Day 44 | Long update..

So, I've been slacking on keeping up this journal for my sake.

Observation: Too much PAR = Add Plant Clouds (Frogbit).
No algae, Blyxa growing crazy, harigrass growing 'hairy' lol (gotta trim it asap), Downoi is growing tall(?), S. Repens 049 growing slowly....

New: Glass Lily pipes came in, outflow came in cracked... refunded. Still got inflow

Fauna: Blue Eye Gertrude Rainbows added.

I cant take pics to save my moss.. >__<


Blyxa Japonica


Why So Tall?


Yay, my favorite fish!



eating a small flake


My little Green Babaluti Shrimp.


Natural Plant Cloud
