#695: 75.8L Aquatic Garden The rooted mangrove

Dennis Singh Westminster, United States


I can see that you have worked hard on your wood work. However some larger pieces of wood and using wood that leads the eye though the scape rather than criss crossing everywhere would work better. Smaller substrate with some larger pieces for contrast would be helpful and please use some plants other than just moss!

Additional Information This tank is 98% algae free with super minimal algae that formed on very little of the gravel and filter waterfall. None forms on the glass whatsoever. I credit this to either temperature or lighting. I did extensive research on panda loaches and what the care requirements are. I havent gotten them to breed yet but that is my main goal. I've read natural hardness is undetectable so both my gh and kh are less than 1. I fertilize via pps pro method on occasion, not consistently. Lights on 8 hrs a day, no co2. High flow aquaclear 70 and chiller is set to 70 degrees farenheit. Carbon is added to filter.
