do you have any algae eaters at all guppyy? I just recently got 2 patches of HC and my SAE's in one tank have eaten it all, and my amanos in my other tank ate most of it there.

Nope. Nano's are harder to maintain.

thanks for saying that... that was the biggest thing that i thought right away.

also for pics. if it isnt too hard just take it out. it will look much better!

/off topic
as for the "i wish i did nano first" no you dont it is more expensive and harder per gallon than say a 10g tank i personally think 10g is best starter size.
/back on topic

the tank does look very good though. esp. with the ADA rocks.

that's one great looking plakat, i bet he appreciate the aquascaping too.

silly question but what does HC stand for. I'm looking for a good foreground plant and i currently have glosso and they're's still too tall for my 5 gallon. So i think that the HC would be great but i don't know anything about them....yet.

thanks alot

HC=Hemianthus callitrichoides
Its just his temporary home until he is a little older. I am thinking of getting some Boraras sp. whatever I can get a hold of and maybe adding a few cherry shrimp.

In my 2g, I dose excel, and while I find that the plants grow quite well, I find the lack of pearling dissatisfying... Would you care to share your recipe for yeast and sugar concentrations?

The only thing I measure is the sugar I use one cup and I have a container with yeast in it and I take a big pinch out of it and thats it.

Heres one you can try to replicate that works very well.
Recipe:
Use a 2L soda bottle.
1. 2 Cups of Sugar
2. 1/4-1 teaspoon of yeast (more yeast = faster reaction = more CO2 for shorter time (2+ weeks))
3. 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda (optional)
