Looks good. Do you have a solenoid to control the co2? I have the same regulator, but I think I need to find a solenoid to turn the co2 off with the lights.

Also, the first off-white one looks fresh as hell. Love it.
The tank, too! It's looking great!

Let me start by saying it looks awsome!

The only thing I would do is cull all but the very reddest males, and a cull a few of the least red females as well. In this tank, the cherrys really stand out, and so having them as red as possible is a good thing. In a tank this small, it is also easy to selectively breed and get awesome results.

I personlly, would also add a plant in a row across the back glass (hairgrass, rotala mini?) But, hey this is you tank, do what you want!

Thanks for the nice comment

I'm not sure how to go about doing that, by culling do you mean mating? I do have a qt laying around.

I was trying to think of another plant to add but not sure which one.
The last scape in this tank had HC+DHG and it looked nice for a while but the HG took over and grew everywhere. Too much to maintain with HC IMO.

Does Giant hairgrass invade like the dwarf type?

Culling is the process of removing the least desirable ones, while this normally means killing, it works just as well to move them into a different tank, sell them off cheap, ect. I prefer to simply feed them to my community tank.

I think giant hairgrass would be invasive. I would try and find a plant w/o runners.

Hi Mott, may I know the distance between your lighting and the substrates? I remember you are using 2 15W CFLs right?
