Well it's been a while :eek: this is still running though not always smoothly:lol:, neglected at times other than the weekly water change, so algae issues here and there, iPhone pic
Stems have gone, wood has been changed from manzi to plain old bogwood as the manzanita was starting to soften...
Hey folks quick pic before the new year,
Letting this over grow now try and build up some plant mass for a re scape, plants are beginning to lift from the substrate so don’t see this one lasting more than a month now,
Had one little stem of pinatidifida survive from the start of the scape...
Yep cut the bottom off in the end, the horizontal position worked ok untill I changed the light to flexi mini, it blocked light from some plants and became a pita when I neglected the tank a little, sucking in air when the tank wasn't topped up.
Thanks for the comments guys, kitchen nano mkII is still running though a tad neglected, it keeps ticking along, shrimp breeding faster than the rams horn snails, will try and keep a better journal if/when I rescape it.
Cheers for looking :-)
I change around 30% weekly on my low tech tanks, I've found it keeps algae at bay and shrimps happy, find the best routine that works for you and the tank, if dosing ei ferts a 1/3 recommend dose should be plenty for a low tech or less.
Morning folks, it's been a while :-), slight change to the scape, sand removed elecharis parvula planted, Monte Carlo has decided to work its way over the hardscape so imagine the carpet will end up mixed, working on thickening the rotala background, not sure the light is showing its best colour...
