I've added Purigen to the filter to help clear up the yellow water caused by the Malaya substrate. The tank is pretty much crystal clear now.
Yep, that little opening is a pain. Although, the good thing about it is it pretty much eliminates livestock deaths by jumping. I've lost so many jumpers in my last tanks because they were topless and rimless.I just hated the small opening on mine...took the top off, but still, the tall and narrow tank makes it so hard to scape it or stock it properly...
Thank you! I'm just glad the driftwood fits into the opening.looks great! the scape is really cool and the dw works perfectly in the tall tank
Thanks Andrew!very cool shots
Thank you!Nince minimalistic hardscape. The pictures with the DSLR show the texture so much better. I like how the round rocks complement the roughness of the manzanita.
I decided against a carpet in this tank because of the Edge's light. It's pretty much a spotlight that only focuses on the center of the tank, so the corners and sides will be very dim. I didn't want to add another fixture because that will ruin the tank aesthetics.The java fern should fill the back nicely.Do you plan on adding a carpet plant ?
The blue color turned out to be only temporary from the stress of being transported from the LFS. They've now returned to the regular clear/white color.I hear the Amanos will change their colour depending on diet, so maybe they were fed something with a blue pigment.
I keep the blinds on that window 90% closed all the time because of algae and also because of the TV. Otherwise, it is south facing and the tank will be an algae farm in no time.I see a window on the right side. Do you keep the blinds open ? How much sunlight does it receive ?
