    Sweet little setup mate. You gonna get some Fauna?
    Did you buy the ADA system from TGM? does it 'smell' like it says?

    Hi Nat
    No fauna....as yet.
    I bought it off someone a couple years back.
    I can't detect any smell :rolleyes: :lol: another gimmick.
    Need to get the Canon out.... pictures are pants.
    Cheers

    Got some algae on the Anubis :twisted: as its been in a non-C02 tank.
    Adding liquid carbon as well as pressurised... to see if that gets shot of it.

    I dont think its to do with the fact its a non co2 tan buddy.. could be too little water changes or too much light? I have 4 nano tanks all running with no heaters filters or co2 and no sign of algae.. maybe its just the new cycle syndrome lol. looking class tho mate :)

    Hi
    Definitely not light :lol:
    Just been neglected a bit...i get lazy.Too many other things to do and no time to do them :(
    Liquid carbon and Flourish excel are the same thing bud...just that your paying a premium for a fancy bottle with a nice sticker on it :?
    Cheers
