    i think your tank is missing a group of 16 juvy harlequin rasboras, they mainly school at the mid/upper areas and i have them forsale!

    It might be a good idea to include the cost plus how shipped also is there a DOR money return/replacement.

    Am I correct in saying you have a strong water movement from the left side of the tank.

    That is correct. I have a small hydro fan on the left blowing to the right. The fishes like to swim against the current.

    Update 2016.03.09:

    I'm sure some of us have had hair algae at some point, no matter how good the tank is.

    Today I was manually removing the hair algae by twirling a toothbrush and noticed that small pieces of the hair algae will fly off and spread elsewhere.

    So I thought of an idea, use airline tubing tied to something heavy and trimmed the tips of my UG to remove the hair algae. The diameter of airline tubing is small, so as soon as I dipped the sucking end into the tank, capillary reaction will start and pull water out of the tank automatically.

    I find this way is much more precise, efficient and does not spread everywhere! Therefore want to share with you guys.

    Special thanks to my wife who took this video while I trimmed :)

    Update 2016.03.14

    Over the weekend it was raining most of the time so I stayed home. Trimmed 1cm of the UG, did 45% water change and fertilization of NPK, trace metals and Fe.

    Hair algae seems to be much more under control now. On the other hand, some UG on the most left side of the tank is constantly uprooting, I think it's the alternanthera reinickii mini's roots that might be interferring with the UG roots.

    All you have to do is research, ask for advice and work hard towards your perfect Aquascape.

    As your Aquascape ages it has something about it that makes you want to look as every detail.

    A video of daphnia feeding, recording a video with one hand and doing things with the other at the same time prove harder than I thought!
