Great looking full tank shot.
This tank is really coming very nicely.
You should post the rest of the details sometime. Would like to hear about your dosing and thoughts on why you think things are going so well this time around.
Thanks Greg! If I can figure out how to get it to post in my signature, I'll add the excel dosing file that a lot of us are using now.
As for current success, I sheepishly admit that it's 90% dedication and cleanliness. 50% weekly water changes, pruning unhealthy plant leaves, and generally just giving the tank the attention it deserves.
I do have a fair amount of green cyano on the sand bed currently. I've tried removing it with my weekly WC, but in true cyano fashion it comes back weekly. I'm really trying to avoid any chemical additives in this tank... anyone have a solution?
As for the rest of the inhabitants, I really need more, more, more! Still torn on what to get in addition to the pencils, but my current mindset is 30 or so coral red pencils and an equal amount of black empower tetras.
Unfortunately the male half of my hongsloi apisto perished (i believe he ingested a few BBS egg shells that mistakenly found their way into the tank), so I currently just have the Hongsloi female and 4 McMaster juvies still growing out as far as Apistos go.
Pics as always.
