Your tank is outstanding. I love the depth the driftwood gives the tank. Please update often, I am really fascinated with your design.

Hey Everyone,

I left over the weekend to hang with family and when I got back my Co2 had been depleted and the tank developed a mix of hair algae because of it. Looking for tips to running a more stable system? It seems like my tank goes from 800 psi to 600 psi in about 2 weeks and then gone in a day or two. Anyone know the best time to swap tanks? I am looking at buying larger ones right now. I am just running 20 oz paintball tanks with the red sea regulator.

Hope all is well and I will update again later this week hopefully.

-Peace

Default Algae tamed???

I did a good cleaning today that ended in a lot more pearling that I have ever seen before. Do water changes often trigger pearling for others?

Not much else new but some pretty decent growth and some major algae abatement. I will try and take another picture with less glare after the sun sets. As I am watching my tank the pearling on my babytears just ripped it out of the substrate lol.

I gotta fix this....

OH lord... why! щ(゚Д゚щ)

Hehe.. I might have to take some more "Avatar" style photos of my tank

I think I have an airleak in my bubble counter ( tubing is not sealing as well as it could ) I might put some liquid electrical tape on the junctions and see if that helps any. Or just run a new line.

Here is my tank as it stands right now...

Hey Everyone,

I cleared out a good portion of the infected rotala. I think my tank has been a lot more stable this last week and everything is finally growing enough roots to thrive. I dig the new red plant in the middle and cant wait for it to grow in. 3 female Cherry Reds are berried as well. I might add a few more cardinal tetras to balance the schools.

Here is what we are looking at today.

I grew up in the twin cities and am currently living down south near Winona MN. The bluffs convinced me to stick around for a while. Thanks for the comment. If you ever have plants to share we should set up an exchange. I expect that in another month or two I will have a lot of waste because it has filled out so well. Still sculpting...

Default Photoshop?

The only changes I make in photoshop are minor white balance adjustments and some sensor dust removal. In that last frame I darkened things a bit around the outside to make a clearer black frame.

I enjoy taking photos and have a decent equipment set. That last photo was lit with 2 little strobes ( like studio lighting ). You dont need it to take good photos of an aquarium though. I wanted to go for the "sunspot" look with the brighter lighting in a pool on the pellia and on the tips of the crypts. Still a work in progress. Both the tank and the photos

Thanks for the compliments

Since I switched to the strobe setup I have been getting clearer images like these below. Also I included a shot of my setup.







-Peace

Haha.. First time I had Makers Mark was on an Amtrak ride back from Montana in the winter time. I think we got stuck or stalled out 3 times on the trip after already being delayed 12 hours getting to our station to start. The longest train ride I could ever care to be on. I don't remember the total hour count but I can thank Makers Mark for a much smoother ride...
