Lush plant growth has really brought the tank together!
That is my type of tank personally I would add as many Cardinal Tetras as possible and they would school up spectacularly.
Hello Nicpapa, I can see that you run CO2 and probably dose fertilizers, but I was wondering how you created your lighting fixture. Could you elaborate on the bulbs you may have, the branding, etc?
Yes there is co2 with cerge reactor, ferts Ei but lower dosage.
Bulbs are cheap osram...
It running with two 6500k 39watt, and one red light 30 watt.
Plants are fine, still bba on the woods and rocks.
Unless it becomes a major concern I would not worry about it at the moment.
Nice tank! I was using yours as inspiration for my tank to be, so could you please re-upload the latest images?! Can't see them anymore, unfortunately.<edit>(Ah, they're there already!)
Have you managed to get the BBA under control or completely removed it.
Hi Keith its under control.
Its only on some rocks and woods.
I dose H2o2 at water change, but it dont do a lot. it burn some but not all of them.
The easy way is to use seachem excel , but i dont want.
So i can remove one day the woods and rock clean them and put them again in the same place.
nicpapa is there any special reason you do not want to use the Excel?
That is a very good and quick method to remove and clean the rocks and wood.
Excel clean very well the algae but do a damage in shrimps and plants..
From another tank
Ludwigia pantanal grow very easy emersed ,
I had several varieties in my tank and they were breeding like rabbits. The only plant I know it effects is Val Seachem also know that but do not know why.
After remove a wood, and move some plants.
I like what you have done very much.
The speed your plants grow you will not be able to see any wood in the near future.
very good looking plants

I can see one major concern with your tank its not in 2mt away from me in my cave office.
