    hmm,
    I´ll check if its possible.
    Any other wishes?

    Today trimmed all the plants down heavily - the LFS staff was shocked, but they trust me. Tenellus is sending tons of runners, Riccia has built that small leafes that I start to believe it is Riccia Dwarf.

    Tirtha my friend,
    you are always as young as you feel ;) Thanks, the new venture is very challenging and I learn a lot every day :)

    Hi Saintly,
    from far it looks sweet but in detail there are some diatoms and some of the glosso is melting away. The shop received the plants in bad condition, but we decided to try our best and simply planted the tank.
    After 2 weeks I trimmed everything down so what you see on the pics (please forgive the poor iPhone quality) is all new growth.
    I maintained the tank yesterday, will keep an eye on the Glosso and replace if necessary.

    Diatoms is nothing to be worry about. The glosso on the second picture look quite OK. You can just trim some and plant it in the melted area.

    The scape look pretty good.

    Hey Juri!

    The Scape looks great!
    Only the four stones at the foreground who lie in one line, looks like a little bit
    unnatural.
    Waiting for new pics with more growth.

    Alex

    Robert, Mark,
    Diatoms have passed, temporary some green algae appeared but now we finally installed the dosing machine and all algae is gone, we now only have to clean the glass, do some water changes and cut things down from time to time :)

    Alex,
    once they become particularly hidden by glosso it will look more natural

    Here are some updates, please forgive the poor iPhone quality

    Fauna:
    75 Caridina Japonica
    12 SAE
    3 Nerite snails, all different to prevent white eggs

    Thank you my friend

    Cheers Orlando
    There will be soon more AQUASYS display tanks

    Thanks Apache
    I never test parameters, just look into the tank and see if the plants are ok


    Maintaining tanks you see only every other day is much more difficult than I initially thought, you kind of need that green hand and certain experience.

    Any suggestions on fish choice?

    Thanks guys, I´m glad you like it :)

    Mojo,
    I´ll try to help my friend ;)
    Cheers

    I haven´t seen the tank for one and half weeks now and there are still one and half weeks to go until I´ll be back in Germany. Looking forward to see how it will look like.

    Have to decide which fish to put in, stopped my decision on Gold Tetra or maybe the Red fin Tetra.

    They are amazed, real crowds in front of the tank from time to time and staff reported they recognized increased selling rate on Co2 and liquid fertilizers :))
