One of te best hill stream setup I have seen.

I very much like to grow such algae in non-planted tanks. You simply achieve by highlight and macro dosing?

Thank you very much!
Yes, relatively strong light (78W T5) for about 14 hours a day and a lot of NPK ferts. At first hair/thread algae will grow, as well as BBA. The hair alae phases out and the BBA I killed with H2O2. I now get clado, unfortunately.

Hi
This is a lovely set up i had one similar around 2 years ago and i had Sewellia lineolata and other species in there.

It was an amazing setup to watch and also to run i used to love it.

There seem to be 3 different patterns on the Sewellia. Some with stripes running along their bodies. Some more like blotches and others with a vertical stripe.

Are they different or are they just variances?
