Stunning work. Do you do anything different for the balls that are going to be grown submerged? I doubt my attempts will be anywhere near as tidy as yours but as I live on a different continent I will have to make do. Any advice appreciated

Nicely done Kiran.

I think CPO's might find that tank a bit small.

Not sure if there's enough hiding space for those aggressive males..

Thanks Jeff

You're probably right about the CPOs. Good point.

This should give you an idea:



I hate SC.

It's a 60W equivalent CFL.

Thanks! Yes, but not on a formal regime. More like whenever I remember (usually 2-3 times per week). Lol

The only thing about this method is that you need to keep a close eye on the algae; the irregularity may be convenient but can lead to rampant algae outbreaks in as short as a week

Just trimmed this tank again, lower. I like it, and Im thinking I'll refine this shape over the next few months.
