Looks good. I like the stones you've selected, and it is a good fit for that table.

I feel your pain, this stage of starting up a new tank can be disheartening but it's not uncommon. Things will turn around once you get the balance right.

I think 3.5 hours photoperiod is not enough, try 6 hours, but most importantly you need to sort out your CO2 ASAP. The Do! Aqua Music Glass diffuser is made to be used with pressurised CO2 systems, I'm not sure how well it would work with that JBL Bio setup. Maybe try a disposable cartridge style CO2 system.

You need some shrimp to clear out that hair algae. I've not had any issues with green hair algae since I started keeping Caradina NT nilotica (Darwin Algae Shrimp) in my tanks. They are similar to Amano shrimp.

Hello everyone,
I was on vacation for 4 days outside my country , look what happened in only 4 days, check the growth.

pressured co2 is magic, if u don't have it i guess you are missing alot of things.

algae gone, more green

enjoy watching
