Looking good! I think those are ludwigia species and not rotalas. Every day I look at the rock wall surrounding my house and think... Damn, those rocks would look good in my tank. Lol Keep up the good work.

Dugsul - please check out a thread today in the 'Plants' section, started by Dongo, titled "HC dying - Cyanobacteria + Green Water also") which deals with that very subject.

If you wish, I'd be glad to pass along the exact procedure for getting rid of cyano.
It's real easy to do in a small tank.

Great tank man. As others have said, that is a beautifully simple scape and you should be proud. Honestly, that water line is really low. This is just my opinion, but having it that low is bad, introducing much more O2 than needed and that o2 is making the algae worse. I would definitely raise the water line to above the lower part of upper black rim. Best of luck getting rid of the algae.

*Edit* I didn't see anything about you dosing ferts...are you? At a minimum I would dose flourish and also have flourish excel handy (even if you don't want to dose it, it can be used for many other issues) I would also dose iron and potassium. Start out with the seachem products and if you feel you want to move onto other types or dry ferts at least you have the basics down.

Looking great!, I love the moss. Good luck with the algae. Definitely take Discuspaul's advice. That stuff needs to be taken care of quickly before it gets worse.

The splash made by HoB degas CO2, try reduce the effect.
Anubias like low light
Any chance you can measure the water parameter? that might give some clue.


edit: maybe you create the splash for more water circulation? that case I don't know what is better then...

Hey, I just noticed that your tank might be outside of the house. Try to cover the sides of the tank during the day so the sunlight is minimized. Does the HOB fit on the short side of the tank? Maybe that could give it more flow in that position.

I would also take out that rock with the BGA and put some H2o2 on it. That normally kills it for me.

Sorry, one last thing. You probably want to tie that Java fern to a rock or wood. The rhizome should be out of the substrate, the roots are fine in the substrate. Plus it'll be easier to move once they get huge.

Good Luck!
