    First Tank - Carpet keeps floating up

    Hi Large clumps will be very difficult to keep down.You need to split them and replant some of them.Plants don't look at their best but the CO2 has been in place only 3 weeks they may need a little adjustment(recovery)before they take off.I will suggest to trim off the worse bits and replant the...

    Hi all Thought will post a little update on the small tank. Started to see a little new growth on Monte carlo and almost negligible growth on Eleocharis mini.

    Hi Im glad to hear the algae is receding.Thats good news. It is not necessary months before you add fish. It can be few weeks(or sooner when your Ammonia hit zero)if you are mindful and stock gradually as @KirstyF has said. We are not talking about the ability of your tank to sustain live...
