    Ok thanks. Yesterday I decided to trim off the affected patch of HC cause the bga was deep in the HC too, so to be safe.... now my co2 about 2-2.5 per second. Shall monitor from here. Thanks

    For CO2 injection rate, it is 1bps for my small tank. For your tank, I would think it should be more.

    Yup bro. Better to remove it all. CO2 should be OK in your tank. Lighting need to see how to adjust to get the balance point. ✌️

    Re: "The Raintree Canopy"-20.59L

    Just in case you wonder how the tank looks like by now.



    Mini fissidens has grown quite well in gradual speed. It has been spreading to the wood branches nicely, too. I like the way they grow. It is not invasive like other mosses and rather stay low. So maintenance work on that is almost none. Just leave it and watch it grows!

    Rotala Rotundifolia needs a good trimming time to time. It grow very fast. I need to do trimming like every 2-3 weeks.

    Anubias nana petite is a slowest grow plant here since it stays under the shade. But it is good also as no maintenance needed.

    I try to have plant some hairgrass in the tank and my amano shrimps love to munch on that. Lol. Hope it can grow in peace.

    Now the tank has only shrimps. It becomes shrimp tank. Some Amano shrimps and Red Cherry Shrimps. The bioload is very low, hence algae issue is also minimized.

    I might do a short video update soon. Thanks for viewing guys!

    Advise to grow them in chilled water may have helped to keep them green and lush.

    Thanks all!

    @torque6: I might get the chiller in the future when I try on other type of shrimps.

    For fissidens, I think there is other factors rather than chilling water that makes it lush. My other tank has the same temperature without chiller but fissidens is very lush green. Might be nitrate level is higher there. 🧐

    Re: "The Raintree Canopy"-20.59L

    Temperature is the deciding factor for fissidens to grow lush and green. Chilled water around 27 degrees to 25 degrees should be fine. Your tank was originally 27, so it will still grow. 1 feet tank, 30L, save $$ and just use fan will do. The kick in and out will wear out your chiller in no time.

    Dennis Wong highlighted not to get your nitirates too low meant that you don't need to have constant high nitrate like most demanding plants for it to grow well.

    Good that you have added fast growing stem plants to your tanks to help manage algae. Hope your tank will continue to inspire new hobbyist with their iwagumi / stem plant hybrid tanks.

    Thanks torque6.

    Yup, the fast growing plants do help the tank maintain the balance and might be one of the reason keep the tank almost algae free till now.

    Great video, beautifully grown fissidens. May I know what are those tiny white colored bug like crawlers? I also have them in my tanks.

    I just read that fishes eat them, that's probably why I don't see them in my tank.

    Hi Starbuce,

    Yes, that kind of seedshrimps should be a good food for fishes. This tank I leave only shrimps alone, so they are also free to grow there. :P

    I am not so sure about the aquarium copepods though, it looks quite similar to each other. Haha.

    Hi jackychun, your scape has grown nice and lush...very beautiful. Just curios if you still following the water change and fertilising regime mentioned in the beginning of your post? If so any casualty in the fire reds?

    Hi Goalkeeper,

    Thank you. And thanks for the moss. That was from you.

    I still keeping the water change like 30-50% per week. Sometimes once in every 2 weeks when I am busy. For fertilizer, I still dose like 0.5ml of Iron and Potassium daily. Sometimes Seachem Flourish like every 3 days. Fire red shrimp so far is still fine. Some of them were goners but many new one was born.

    It is kind of low maintenance tank so far since the moss and Anubias are very slowly grown.
