Hey, great tank, and congratulations on the baby! I remember when I was a little kid I'd reach my hand inside the tank and grab at the fish, we'd get new fish every couple weeks, lol, moral of the story; make sure the tank is up high.

i vote for going low tech. all i ever do to my 50 is top offs and occasionally dose when i remember. of course you still need to remember to feed your fish. once you get the light dialed in, they just sorta go on cruise control.

Thanks for the tip Hilde. I'm definitely going to try to keep it simple. How is your low tech tank going?

Hahaha! Good point. Both of mine are well above reach for at least 3 years.

Nice! I'm gonna take a look back through your 50 journal. You are not using any type of Co2?
