Day 1 vs Day 92



Not the greatest quality but it's awesome to see big growth from the mini pelia and other slow growers. The explosion of pinnatifida and monte carlo is so satisfying to watch.. All the stems have had multiple trims throughout the tanks life by now and are not at peak height/shape currently.

From this



to this



Just cut vertically outlining the rock and the whole section growing in the sand can be uprooted/lifted out easily. 20 seconds and done.

Do you have any regrets with your current light? If you were to start over today, would you still go with the Chihiros RGB 45cm? I ask because I think that I am going to start over and move up from a 16 gallon cube to a 25 gallon cube.

Love the light.

Cheapish, looks sleek, not crazy high output although the colour spectrum is incredible. I only wish I had two so I could get perfect coverage and intensity throughout the entire tank. Recently been using the RGB and the A-Series Plus in combo to try and turn the H'ra more red, but no signs yet..

4.5 month update:

Had a wonderful time moving this tank downstairs to have the carpets redone and then move it back afterwards.. Thankfully I was able to drain the water down to a couple inches and just pick it up. Lost a couple shrimp and fish but it went smoother then expected. Also was able to upgrade my filter from the Eheim 2213 to the 2215 for more flow.

Current inhabits include:

4 CPD's
2 SAE's
2 Ember tetras
Amano/Cherry shrimp
1 Nerite snail

Tank is kind of on autopilot and doesn't require much attention. Just a trim here and there, some feeding and water changes. Thinking about a rescape in a month or two and getting a new school of nano fish.

I'm so pissed. I lost some tissue culture downois to some pest snails. Granted it was a big melt but as I had real small growth slowly coming out from one last successful stalk, and making headway, it got completely wiped out in one day by a hungry pest snail.

Will appreciate through your pics for now. Yours is just beautiful and the way you blend things is most inspiring. I'll slowly get there one day, maybe.

Probably have to buy immersed the next time I try again. Hoping it was just that random snail and not all of them have a taste for it.

Thats unfortunate, do you have the same kind of snails you see in my mini pelia or different?

Super super tiny but there's probably 150 of these guys throughout the tank.
