So I got my regulator in just waiting on diffuser, drop checker, and ferts. I was initially going to get the aquatech mini but GLA won me over with their customer service and quality of their products.

Second day of dosing co2 realized how bad I need that drop checker. I went out for an hour and came home to find this!! All my fish and shrimp were at the surface gasping for air I turned of co2 immediately and raised the spraybar to agitate surface. I had the co2 at 3bps but will start at 1bps untill drop checker gets here. I was so scared when I saw half my colony of shrimp gasping fortunately no casualties but definately a learning experience.

WOAH man!

I had a scare when I left the heater and pump off over the weekend after I did a water change and simply forgot to reconnect them.

I didn't realize that co2 could also be a potential threat. Another thing that could go wrong and kill fauna!

I'm glad to hear it didn't result in any deaths but for me it's another point for low-tech.

Surprisingly some of my nicest moss has grown under just the 13w pc bulb that tank comes with. And thats the hard part about trying to buy cheap co2 equipment for smaller tanks, sadly they need even more control than a larger one which leads to extra expensive in needle valves and a more stable regulator.

Update pic. Hairgrass is shooting runners in all directions. Still need to find a good background plant. Im going to replace the big heater& pump. Thinking of getting the hydor koralia 250 powerhead for circulation.

WOW I had no idea it came with all these accessories. The itch to set up a nano on my computer desk has been cropping up lately... Hmmmm...

I used to run an 8g nano 6 or so yrs ago. thoroughly enjoyed it

Tank is looking good!
