At last after about 2 moths of being offline i can write to you again.
I had almost finished my 65G tank and i'll soon have a picre of it.
I have 2Blue gouramis,22 neon tetras,4callistus,4corydoras aeneus,7 corydoras paleatus,11platy,1xipho,3 moly, 3 aymonieri,2 megalechis personataand 14 gupy.
My cryptocorynes had a hard time but are ok now.
My substrate is topsoil about 5 cm and 1 to 3cm of gravel.
The lights are 4*36W osram daylight and 1*Aqua-Glo(in the front.
I aso have 27 snails that do not eat most plats but they like to eat my hygrophiles(especialy hygrophila polysperma) and my mrophillum.
the filtration is made using Eheim 2215 and aqua el (fan-1 100l/h for co2)
The temperature is about 29oC(80oF)because in my room is very hot especial in smmer and my computer is on at least 8 h;also my balasts are under the aquarium .
It sounds like paradise but the algae creep in and boom.I defeated the small green algae but now the blue algaes had allied with the green spot algae and invaded my Cyptocorynes and anubias nana and bacomba and the glas
I can't keep the snail for long becuse i realy want to grow hygrophila and they seem powerless in the batle?
The water is changed weekly and if you think that i made a mistake with the topsoil then i want to tell you that the soil will not have a low redox but the gravel directly onthe top of the soil.So that's why i have so little gravel in my aquarium.
So what do you think about my aquarium?Any tips to win the war against algae will be apreciated.
