Lovely scape Thierry. Well deserving of the placement and testament to your persistence.

Hi there!
This tank is still running, and I think it reached it’s pike…I’m only dosing 3ml all in one soil 3 from masterline 5 times a week and some masterline potassium ,3ml 2 times a week. No more algae since 2/3 months.
Waterchange about 30% every 7-10days depending on my schedule.
Actually running an Aquael ultra 1200, not been cleaned since 2 months now.

I’m not sure why the tank is so clean with such an lazy maintenance? But definitely won’t complain.
The week aqua light has been an awesome performer on this one and I’m getting fire red rotala h’ra and great pearling.

I will probably enjoy it a little more before having the idea of rescaping this, especially because I don’t wanna bother the livestock and the actual balance!

Some pics;

Plants :







Please don’t mind the 2 SAE, they will be rehomed in the 200liters tank from my father at the end of the year, before they get too big :)

Really amazing, it's good to see that this tank is still there, even after the contest.
Could you tell me how do you monitor your CO2 in this tank? PH drop, drop checker (which color), bubble counter? (I would like to know how CO2 level is critical with your fert).
Thank you

Hey there and thank you very much!
I use an drop checker, it’s usually light green when the lights come ON.
I’m actually injecting 2bps, starting 4hours before lights and stopping 1hour before the lights come off.
Injecting co2 inline with the co2 art inline diffuser, and then running thru the neo lily pipes with the integrated skimmer on the outlet.
Hope this helps :)

Always love seeing this tank :) Do you have a full list of all the stock you have in it? Just for reference, because I know you mentioned somewhere that its a lot, but it never seems very crowded, just a nice bustle of activity.

Lazarus is celebrating his 1 year birthday this month, here’s an quick shot after maintenance today in order to celebrate this! :)

Thanks a lot mate, here’s the full list of the livestock, it’s an bit crowded now because lots of fishes have been added from my nano setups that has been rescape since, I’ll rehome half of all these fishes in my father’s 200liters tank once I rescape this tank. ;)

25 paracheirodon simulans
6 nemathobrycon palmeri
4 tucanoichthys tucano (from my nano)
2 Dario tiger sp myanmar (from my nano)
6 otocinclus affinis
2 Siamese algae eater (getting out soon into my father’s tank)
4 endler guppys (from my nano)
1 stiphodon semoni (from my nano)

And 5-6 clithon / neritina snails

So quite an mixed group of fish species but they are all doing very well and living in peace together, since I lost one of the 2 males emperor tetra (he jumped out this summer), it’s now more peaceful because the dominant male is alone with 5 females. 👍

I’ll probably keep only the simulans and the otocinclus for my next scape in this tank. Some of the others small fishes will go into my new 45p setup. The others to my father’s tank and some for giveaway.
