yes, the tank is still running.
Will make some shots in the next days and update the thread.
Easy going one, with no big issues.
sorry, don't have much time at the moment.
This 60P is still running. This is the status right before I changed water today, before...

I like what you did with your Mini S!
How old is the setup? Looks quite young?

Wow... this is different!
Looking forward to the planted, grown in result.
well I can only tell that it helped in my case. I guess adding oxygen over night has the same effect as the Twinstar, it only helps to...
Thank you guys,
it was just only the "ugly" shot right after cutting :-)
well, only one pic:

Not yet, Dantrasy.
The HCC on top of the rock needs to grow in a little bit more and the moss has to recover a little bit.

Good morning everyone,
phew... sometimes it feels more like Tetris in such a small tank :D
But getting there, getting there:
finally the tank arrived yesterday!
Very happy! Now I can start with the layout ;)
yes, every week a Little bit of ECA plus from time to time a cap full of Seachem Iron.
And thank you guys :-)
I'm thinking about...
Thank you Troi,
but still not there, still not there :lol:
Finally found someone for taking care of my fish, therefore I'll get some new.
i'll go for some Danio erythromicron. Good choice?...
Wow, that'S a big one :lol:
Look at the leave size! Nice!
Cheers guys! :thumbup:
I'm still adjusting it and changing the rocks here and there, but I will try what you suggested Dantrasy.
I wanted to make...
this will be a 13l tank.

welcome to my new nano-tank journal!
I hope you will enjoy the wild ride :lol:
It's still very early, but that's the current idea...
Well... yeah :lol: Most likely it will cost more than the tank+cabinet :lol:
Hm... I really like your light units and a led controller would make...
Yepp, really wonderful innovative light unit!

I know... :(

It's easy to get some nice looking small...
Will give it a try...
This is Manten-seki, Marcel.

Thanks guys :thumbup:
Will take a look at my local shop soon and decide ;)
Hm... Any ideas Alexander?
I'm looking for some new fish, but the ones I like are too big for the 60P :lol:
update time :lol:

Next week, I can make some comparison shots, I have the black and a white background here...
Then we can decide :D
sorry for the lack of updates recently, but not much is happening... everything's still growing good, but slower with the ADA system...
I had some sort of inspiration this time.
There is a region in Germany called "Erzgebirge" and some areas there look exactly like my new WK:...
unfortunately my old Wabi did not rank very high in the EAPLC... hopefully I will have more luck with this one.
Looks quite promising at...
Thank you guys,
@EvitaL : I guess I will stick to the emersed state at the moment, let's wait and see, perhaps I'll change my mind :-)
Hey Jordi, thanks :-)
It needs a little bit more time to grow in completely, but i'm getting there...
nothing special, just wanted to share my latest fiddling around with the next Wabi-Kusa with you.
Again, I used a mix of old soil...
getting there slowly. I removed the Moss in the middle area, I guess it's much better on the eye and not so overloaded than before....
Very nice images Lauris,
looking forward to see the final result.
Dry start is nothing for me, I'm way too impatient for that.
20 drops of ECA right after the water change and I started straight away with Step-2 (dosing 5ml every day now).
K is now only added once a week,...
just a minor update:

just a quick one!
Had a good trimming on friday and now started to add a little bit of ADA Special Lights (3ml per day).
The tank is...
never noticed it before... what kind of LEDs are you using?
Looks like a FrankenLED created out of 4 ADA Aquasky lights?
That's a promising start and again wonderful photos, Pedro!
I guess it's because of ADA's low or 0 dosing of phosphates, I don't know.
Never had this issues when adjusting NO3, PO4 and K to my...

Good evening UKAPS,
I guess I owe you guys a little update.
The tank is doing great so far and I'm really impressed about the plant colours so...
The natural look of it is wonderful!!
What's the plant in the middle/sand-area (apart from the eleocharis)?
On the right side, I have this little air stone + an attached air pump.
That's enough to get rid of any surface scum and give the drop checker a...
That's what I call a clean cabinet!
Superb looking tank!
Thank you for the kind words guys!
Yesterday, I gave the SuperJet a good cleaning and changed the last filter media to BioRio!
Plus, I replaced...
That's a great idea Jordi, now I need to find a suitable red plant ;)
the brown diatomes are gone and left is only a few green covered stones, but almost clear again.
Growth is fantastic, can't complain...
Eca contains iron(II) and iron(III) rapidly available
Gesendet von meinem iPhone mit Tapatalk
They really have a nice structure to it... I love them ;-)
The amount of micros seems to be the same, the difference is the amount of iron and K.
But I'm using the "original" Step 2 here, as I had one...
Your "fanart" shot (Istanbul shoe) is looking great! It has a nice ADA Amano touch to it!
Looking forward to your new layout!
But imho, the...
That's a nice stone arrangement, James!
Ever thought about adding some HCC or Eleocharis Mini to cover the substrate completely?...
I would say, don't remove the moss! The contrast is good, as it adds quite a good amount of looking "natural" to it!
small update! The last couple of days have been quite troublesome, but I'm getting there!
After switching to 100% RO Water (mixed 50/50...
Looking forward to seeing it placed in a tank and planted!
No worries... will give it a try.
I have\had it in 3 tanks now. Something must be inside the water that's causing this.
Same for you, Daniel ;)
Hm... don't know, Martin.
Have to check the water Parameters.
Will try it the next couple of weeks with a water treatment and then let's see how...
that's it for the Mini S.
Here is the final shot send to EAPLC:
Water is running directly from the RO into the tank.
Never used dechlorinator in any of my tanks as there's no chlorine in our tap water.
I know they are normal during the Initial cycling of the tank. But I have the assumption that something in the Tap water changed, as...
Getting quite extreme Diatom outbreak.
Had this in the Mini S, too.
After yesterdays maintenance, I changed to an inline atomizer.
You got me with "dutch"!
Count me in... ! Subscribed!
I only learn from people like you Dantrasy, or Pedro, or Viktor, or Luis, or Stu, or George, etc... :-)
Just to name a few...
Thanks again guys :):thumbup:
@Jordi: I'm using a SuperJet Filter here now and it took me a while to find a good place for the diffuser.
Too intense and to blue :lol:
Have turned down the brightness already, looking much better now.
I have to play around with the color of course, but you get the idea:

Colourful tank, great arrangement and a beautiful picture of it!
This is a good one, Martin and the collected rock just looks fabulous!
You do know that they look a lot like Manten Stone!
2 Island tanks are one...
Oh they will do for sure :lol:
But as you said, I'll wait until the HCC has grown a little bit over the barrier.
I see me picking soil balls out...
