It's a really impressive tank this Dela. Managing to distribute co2 and nutrients evenly in a tank this size and appeasing the plants deserves lots praise and the fish look very happy.

I'm had a tough enough time in a tank the third of the size so I can only imagine how difficult it is to care for a tank this big, especially when things go wrong. Shows great perseverance and determination. Good job.

Looking beautiful - still really loving the Congos!!!

We have a breeder of Odessa barbs nearby where I live and are some of the most stunning I have seen, and am looking at a bunch of those to spark up my tank since I can't get Congos that nice. Here is what they look like...

Thanks everyone!

Those barbs look nice. I was looking at barbs before I changed my mind and would like to go back to keeping more barbs again sometime.

I keep thinking I'd like to get more light but I should really get a line splitter and hook up the second CO2 reactor first.

Must...resist.....buying....high-powered.....lights.

Well, one of the underwater lights has developed a flicker in two of the LED bulbs. Less than six months old and off to the bin.

I know, I know.

Went to fish shop to get fish food. Also got a medium powered LED light (as you do). Hope to get pics as soon as I smuggle it into the house

Busy week, parcel of ferts arrived. 5 kilograms doesn't seem that much when you order...



The basil airbag (left side in photo below) I have no idea on why it was in there.



Cleaned tank of plant debris again. Sigh. Wish I could do better with plants.




New light out of the box to boost the quad t5ho. Now I have to look at increasing CO2 again but really hoping algae stays away and plant growth is a little faster (except the val, that's just getting to be a weed..).

Looks like a pretty clean styled light.

Someone somewhere is disappointed they didn't get their Basil and can't cook their spaghetti sauce now!

I know, I know - so weird on the basil. Very curious on why it was there but not even sure if I'm game to ask.

Hoping to get PAR readings later today. So far thinking I'll just run the channel (pretty amazing to buy a light and promptly turn half the light off.
