Sorry that I lagged on updates of this tank. The camera didn't work anymore, that's why I didnt have any pictures. So pretty much I added a couple of stem plants and that's it. I trimmed down the glosso, so it looks ugly. So earlier, my parents bought a new camera. It's the Canon Powershot SX120 IS. I heard mixed reviews about the camera, but oh well, I like the picture quality. I'm still a noob though, so I need help using the manual mode of the camera.

Here are the pictures (don't mind the rock that has the moss, I'm just trying to grow the moss, and I ran out of room for the rock.)

The glosso is coming along nicely

Thanks, hopefully it'll just stay down. I've only seen 1 glosso send out a runner, but I keep noticing everyday that there's always new growth on the glosso, which is really cool. They are super fast growing plants.

Nice little tank! I really like the rockwork, and those stem plants in the back.

Thanks! I have problems with the rotala in the back. The bottom leaves melted for some reason. Could it be because of nitrates? I read somewhere rotalas dislike nitrates.

I looks great! I think you could do a bit better with the hardscape tho, your first setup was better I think.

Keep trimming the glosso, it took a while for mine to start sending runners but now it has exploded.

Btw I like to run carbon in a new tank I feel it helps with diatoms and other nastys.

The rock with the moss is just on top of the other rock temporarily. I really don't want to mess with the scape for now. I probably will change it once the glosso spreads out nicely to the original scape.

Ga'h! I have lots of diatoms all over my tank. It's probably I dose too much ferts or something. Maybe I should change my dosing. Any suggestions?

I might get some amano shrimps tomorrow or some otos. 2-3 of either one. Also, my glosso carpet's dying! some of the leaves started turning brown. What could this mean?

Here are some pictures.




Ugh, hopefully I could get rid of the diatoms. It's all over my substrate, the glass, and the plants too!!

whenever i have this problem i do more and more water changes. the more the merrier right? since you dont have any fish in the tank you could set up another DIY co2. that might help the glosso make a come back.

Here's the tank update:
I added some crypt parva to the mid-right of the tank to fill in the space.
Also, I added an otocinclus. It's been in the tank for a week, and doing great.
I finalized my stocking plan for this tank.
It won't be a shrimp tank though. I'm gonna have a betta, 6 pygmy cories, and an oto.
I also started dosing with Excel since I'm starting to hate DIY CO2 since it only lasts me about a week for some reason. Maybe I should put less yeast in my mix or something.

Here are some pics






Hope you like it

Try covering your 2 liter bottle with ducktape or anything to block out light. I couldnt get DIY to work for me until i blocked out all light to the unit

This tank has been long defunct. Look forward to a high tech tank in September
