90 litre journal

Hi guys / girls

Set this tank up around 10 weeks ago with the initial ambition of being low tech, however that didn't last long and now runs CO2.

I've been battling hair / thread / diatom algae since setup but 'seem' to be winning the battle.

Equipment as follows :

Tank - Fluval Roma 90 (dimensions 60cm *45cm * 45cm) with black background
Filtration - Eheim Pro 3 350 canister filter
Heater - 100w fluval in tank model
Light - Ecotech Radion XR15FW on Ecotech template with custom fitting
CO2 - CO2art sodastream system with bazooka in tank diffuser
Substrate - ADA Aquasoil coarse and fine
Hardscape - Dragonstone and Manzanita
Dosing - Easycarbo liquid carbon 10ml per day, TNC liquid fertiliser 10ml per day
Water change - 2 x 25l water changes per week using RO water


Hygrophilia, Rotala, Buces, Crypts, various mosses, HC 'Japan', Java fern


GBR x 2, Espei Rasbora x 10, Corydoras Pygmeaus x 6

Future purchases

- A second Ecotech Radion XR15FW for better spread
- Hydor inline heater
- Glass lily pipe and skimmer intake (to rid of surface scum)
- Second Eheim canister filter to increase water turnover
- Plenty more Buces / mosses
- Corydoras Hastatus and green neon tetras
