  1. Here is a pic of the tank now! 15 days and 2 trims from last picture.
  2. tank is 24x 12x 15inch I think. Cut the tank down 10 days ago, so it was half of last picture! was abit worried, but plant's have grown back with a vengeance!
  3. This tank is really just to plant as many plants as possible and see how each plant grows and what works best, so I can learn for when I do a hardscape. kind of like a study tank lol
  4. today http://s1330.photobucket.com/user/jpcqw1/media/DSC02489_zps6374f2f1.jpg.html http://s1330.photobucket.com/user/jpcqw1/library/?sort=3&page=1
  5. cant make the tank look what it looks like in person but will have too do.
  6. Hey, just wanted to post a pic of my fairly new 2ft tank I set up. I bought two new light which I bought two weeks ago and put in 5 days or so ago, which are the T5 Giesemann's, one is the flora and the other is a midday. I also have a random 6700k light that balances the lights, so I have around 72w over the two foot. I have to say these giesemann's really are great lights!! here is a pic before and after only 5 days growth!! ps. I also dose Florish Iron, Potassium, Phosphorus,Nitrogen, Comprehensive, Dino spit and Dino dung, with ada soil and pressurized co2.
  7. Looking good. thanks for sharing!! keep us updated. for t5 tubes I would get two Giesemann aquaflora and two Middays good combo
  8. with co2 and ada substrate and ferts should I be able to grow most plants?
  9. I was looking at getting my sister a 28L(around 7.5gallons) nano tank off fleebay for her new house! and i'm not sure what light I should put over it? I was looking at the 10w led floodlight. Do you think that is enough light or should I go 20w? cheers
  10. Staghorn Algae grows in long individual strands that form a few branches. It will grow close to the light source on equipment and plants. Strands can be pulled off the surface or in very bad cases the whole leaf should be discarded. Higher ammonia/ammonium levels (from overstocking or substrate disturbance) and low CO2 levels will favour this algae. It's been known that the Siamese Algae Eater will keep this algae in check. Nutrient control and healthy growing plants will limit Staghorn algae. Found this! My ammonia levels are 0 so very weird and I am running plenty of co2 so I guess I need some siamese algae eaters
