    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?

    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!)

    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.

    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.
