dekstr's 5g nano tank (since april 2008)

Hi! I kind of neglected the tank over the past few months, and until today it was in very bad shape.

If it weren't for a lighting timer and the plants not needing to be watered, it probably would have withered.

The water level went down past half, all my red cherry shrimps and assort bee shrimps died. A blanket of hair algae covered all the plants. I tried my best to clean it up today.

Since there are no more animals in there (except for those indestructible pond snails), I'm hoping to revive this tank via excel treatment, manual hand picking of algae and lots of TLC.

You can see the old thread here...

Before and after: Spring 2008
