Oh ok! So those are all litres of water? Sorry, I'm still lost...

That's a nice looking tank. Will the light from the window be any threat to bleaching corals?

Break out the cigars . Have you got you hillstream tank ready to roll yet? Will you run a separate filter alongside the flow regulator or will the sponges act as home to the tanks BB? Those maxi flow pumps are very handy (assuming that is what powers it).

Anyhow i had a productive day. Had the day off work for a doctors appointment which meant time at home when nobody knew i was here to bug me about anything. I did a tank wall scrub & 50% water change on one 20g in the morning and some replanting in that tank (I swear that fish rips up the plants for shade or something).

In the afternoon i shopped for some Hydrogen peroxide to spot treat algae and some liquid ferts to hopefully get the tank balanced and keep it from coming back. I drained to 50% water removed filters and spot treated the majority of my Cabomba which gets left alone by my snail. I coiled most of it into a small area and used a medicine dropper to apply it. I have to say it seemed to work. Cabomba looks cleaner after a few hours. While i had the water level down i also trimmed most of my old leaves off the Ludwigia. At that point i decided it was time to unclutter an area so i moved plants around for maybe 30 minutes to see if i could improve the scape. Trimmed some plants and replanted some tips to fill in blank areas. I'm still not happy with it but it's improving. I need smaller leaved plants or different shaped though.

Before HP treating and plant shuffle (note the brown on the Cabomba)


After (tried using my phone which takes BAD photos)


I may have to start a tank journal thread so i can go back and see the transition of this tank.
No it never gets in, the porch blocks 99% of any light and it wont bleach the corals unless its for a a long period of time.

Not what I should have. I topped off water instead of water changes I needed to do. Lost my baby puppy Spot of 11 years Saturday morning and I'm still wallowing in sorrow. Not much got done this past week. But I noticed my female Xenotilapia Ochrogenys Nodle Bay is holding again. Now I have two holding in the tank as my Callochromis Stappersii is holding again, too. Gonna go sulk and cry some more now... Sigh...

Added sand substrate and piled up the gravel at one end, creating a two tiered, duo substrate! Planted bogwood and statue look epic, fish are looking fine, even my various snail, whelk and clam species seem happy. Class
