Ok Thx lauraleellbp I'm gonna get some tabs today.

Thx for the complament Mysty. I'm going no co2 on this tank I want too keep it as low tech as possible. I did some rearanging since the pic and it looks even better. I have some wood I want to add and I'm going to get more anubias and a java fern today. Only bad thing is the Flourite everytime I put my hand in the tank it stirs a cloud and takes 2 days to clear up. I'll add some more pics in a few days.

Yeah the bulb is a life glo 2 by Hagen. Yeah it was kinda pricey I paid $16. I got it at Petsmart.

So what is your new substrate? It's very bright, almost too clean looking. Did you bury the florite or remove it altogether?

Thx

I removed 1/2 of the Flourite and put ADA Nile sand on top of it. The wood is Swahalla root wood from Africa.

The sand looks realy bright in the Pic but my camera takes bad pics it's just light reflecting off of it. It looks realy natural in the tank.

Also the sand is helping to keep the flourite cloud away.

Thx for the complements.

Eventualy I'll add something to the foreground but I ran out of funds for now. I'd also like to add some moss to the wood and get some threadfin rainbow fish or furcata rainbows.

If what your talking about is the rock wool, I'd try to get as much as possible off. It tends to look nasty later on if it should come up. Rinse the plants in a bucket of water and use something like a chop stick to carefully poke at it.

Ok I've got a problem the tank has been up and running for close to a month. No major algae outbreaks yet but the leaves on my Anubias minima are turning yellow around the edges, tips, and theres holes in the leaves.

Is this some kind of deficincy? Should I start dosing ferts? If so what kind?
