Welcome to Planted Tank!!

Tank looks great. What crypt is that? Looks good and doesn't seem too large for a 5.5gal. And how long has the tank been set up? Thanks.

Can we get some more info on the tank:
-Co2
-Ferts
-Lighting and time
-Plant list

Currently out of the hobby

It is actually quite an ok weather in Malaysia, not hot eventhough we are near to the equatorial line ( i guess bcos of all the forests ). here in KL, indoor temperature normally is around 78-82F.. it is windy and humid, thus the temperature is pretty much stable around here, which is ok.

Hey doncityz... u from Malaysia too ? hahha.. seems that pics is fine from my side, i can view them, u still having problem ?

@phangtonpower... by using a simple DC fan, we can keep the tank temp below 30c easily, my tank usually around 27-28c

Hmmm....Japanese summers are hot and humid and I have a hard time keeping them cool even with fans. Guess I'll see what I can do this year. Thanks
