Crossing fingers that's mobile photo uploads work. Attachments...

Got some new plants. Not sure if I want to use Valls now. Seams like people frown on their invasive-ness.

Added a 2.5 lb co2 to replace my diy bottle. Wanted it to be small since its sits in the open.

My regulator from UP aqua doesn't quite have the same connection. It fits and doesn't leak though.

Based on my estimates I should get about 6 months from it at 1 bps while lights are on.

Having only Ottos in the tank is nice. The only thing I feed is the plants and I could go weeks without doing that. Nitrates are getting lower over time as well.

I am thinking of getting some easy bright colored shrimp and keeping the tank as maintenance free as possible.

Any updates? Where did you purchase your CO2 setup? I'm looking for something very similar. Can you take a picture of your light? Thanks and great job keeping the baby tears happy.

eBay for the regulator and amazon for the tank. Same price for the paintball setup once you add 20 for an adapter. I like it a lot.

Added a drop checker too. my tank normalizes right above 1 bps.

Will add photos later... Out of town now.

Right now I am fighting algae. Can't quite get it to stop. Water looks fine and light is down to 6 hrs and the bulb raised up 2 inches. Riccia is floating and it's blocking some light.

My driftwood is also taken out at the moment. I am growing fissidens on it with the dry start method. Crossings fingers on this.

Here are some quick updates.

BGA is a PITA. Tired of cleaning this stuff. Going to the store tonight to get some maycin.

Put the driftwood back in with the moss after dry starting it with fissidens.

Post Christmas updates.

Pulled out baby Tears. BGA took it over and killed it off.
The fissidens are starting to grow out.
The Anubias is growing well.

Random comment: I love the name of your set up, I wish I'd thought of it! Tank's looking good.

No algae problems like I used too. Less light, less dosing. Switched to DIY root tabs from eBay and use Algae Fix every few weeks when things start going sliding down hill. Usually due to a need for water change and cleaning.

Since I switched to remineralized RO water and reduced lights its all been much more stable. Trying to go lush and low maintenance.

I also added a different ground cover plant.
