How did you get that H. Japan to behave? I have it in my 10 and it doesn't want to be condense, and I run high light and co2 as well.

Epic tank btw, its making me really want to try out Baby Tears lol

Thanks!!!
It just needs a little training. I use the thongs to keep it grow in the way I like and don't get too high.
If you want to try baby tears, pm me for a deal

Looking good. Nice tank! I like the basic layout very much.

How do you think the hair algae came about?

Light too intense near the surface of the water?

I would say lack of CO2 and too much lighting. When I upgraded to pressured CO2 which is more stable, hair algea is completely gone.

I did raise the light fixture up the water surface a bit too!!!

Yes, I just put 10 of them in. Hopefully they will breed soon. RCS is breeding like crazy now, I should have about 100 of babies and juveniles RCS swimming around...lol...still feel worried to sell them since I never shipped shrimps before

Updating my tank before trimming, it becomes a Dutch style aquascape






I become fascinated with bucephalandra plants because of my brother Riversun, so I bought these 2 plants and really didn't regret buying it, they are beautiful

Thank you! I should have updated my tank after trim.



Still thinking that I should move plants around or rescape but don't have time yet. The crypt wendii on the left front is getting big but still looks good. Should I take it out and replace with smaller plants? Don't know yet.

And the HM(baby tears) seems like really good carpet in the back if it stays short.

@slapmonster: now you make me feel good and embarrassed at the same time
I know a lot of people can do better than me. I'm learning from aquascapers and plantedtankers

Beautiful tank and wonderful journal. I love your tiger shrimp, I have one too looks just Ike yours. I had a female and she died, so I tried artificially hatching them, it didn't work

But beautiful tank. Did you run diy co2 before or while the shrimp were in the tank and what was your recipe and how did you control the bps

I had my diy CO2 running while I got like 20 RCS in there. I let it run 24/7 and didn't control the bps at all. Then when I change to pressured CO2 with a timer, I think that when my RCS started to breed fast.

This used to be my recipe and work really well (almost 2 weeks):
2L bottle: 1/2 teaspoon of yeast + 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda + 2 tablespoons of sugar...then fill up to 2/3 of the bottle with warm water (not hot)
