    Reborn of a neglected tank

    Was not able to up keep my tank for quite a while, which cause the whole tank to be overwelmed by algae and stuff.

    I have decided to clean it up abit and was deciding what type of tank I wanted. I like the Iwugami style setup but understood that this tank needs more experience and more time consuming to maintain it at the optimal. But nevertheless I like the serene feeling that it gives you.

    Hence I'm gonna try it anyway. My goal for this tank is to keep things to minimal.

    Juz two types of grass and probably three species of fishes.

    Very nice setup bro, i like the placement of the rocks. Is this a high-tech setup (CO2 injection / Chiller) and what plants did you use?

    Re: Reborn of a neglected tank

    Hi, no co2 and chiller. I have success to grow the Monte Carlo without co2 but a weekly or twice a week dosage of excel in my nano tank. Hence I wanna try if I can do it here.

    Mine mainly Monte Carlo and drawf hair grass.

    Thanks bro. Let's update each other progress as we have quite similar setup.

    Hi, no lah.. mine is juz make do, anyway this is juz a start, I hope to keep it so called low tech, but I believe excel still a must. Let's see how long it takes to carpet. What co2 system u using? Actually I do have a co2 system, not using it for a long while liao.

    Nice! I love the very clear shots of the shrimp. They appear to be more interested in your algae wafer tho

    Haha.. true true.. not much algae for them to feed on at that point of time, put the algae wafer to distract them from uprooting my plants

    Re: Reborn of a neglected tank

    A couple of changes to the original idea. Think I'm too impatient to wait for the plants to grow, hence i start the co2 system again... also cycling of the tank took too long.. in the end i use the seachem stability since it's on offer now and use it to accelerate the cycling of the tank.

    Currently the ammonia is down to 0 after 5 days of using stability, but nitrite is very high now, juz did a 20% water change.

    Re: Reborn of a neglected tank

    Day 18th, sad to see my DHG dying day by day, the one of the left is almost being uprooted. Probably gonna cut it away tonight in case it develop fungus. MC is growing ok, but slow, some patches are growing upwards, will be trimming them to make them abit flatter to the substrate.

    Re: Reborn of a neglected tank

    Day 21th. Was trying to un-tug a bloodworm from a drawf hairgrass, even the slightest pull actually could uproot the hairgrass. I think it’s probably the substrate size i’m using is unsuitable for planting drawf hair grass. Clean up the grass and try to tuck it deep into the substrate again. Hope it will eventually survive.
