Additional Information I have this tank running for two years, with a couple of different looks, i do 2 water changes a week, one on Wednesday 20 to 25 %, and the second on Sunday 40 to 45 %.
I use the liquid fertilizers from Green aqua the micro and macro, 1 pump micro, the next day macro and so on.
I do little trimming sessions every 3 weeks, i don't do big trimming sessions because it unbalances the little tank to much, and than i can get some algae issues. Filter cleaning once every 2 months, but just rinsing the media in aquarium water, and ones every 3 months pipes and tubing. I use pressurized co2 during the 8 hours photoperiod., I do enjoy this tank a lot, hope you like it too.
