    Hello AquaticQuotient

    I have a lot of luck to have chanced upon a local site for Aquascaping!
    This is great. I really wonder where i've been all this time.

    I am kinda new to this wonderful hobby, about 1 year. I hope to learn more about planted tanks and make friends here. Thanks ahead for kind assistance in future (i will start to ask dumb questions if u don't mind

    haha babygrand, are you a Yamaha?
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    You got to use a picture editing software to do the scaling. I believe the Paint program in Windows is able to do the job. Or you can also download any of the free to use photo editing software.

    Hi all

    It will be a while before i can post pictures of my 6g nano setup. I'm using a Macbook so Irfan isn't quite compatible. Need to hunt for another software fast. Anyone else here using a Mac? Give me a hand please?

    Thanks ahead.

    In the mean time maybe I can give you all some details of my 6G setup I.
    Each time i add liquid plant ferts there seems to be brown algae developing.
    I would try a 3-day 'black out' to stop them from invading my whole tank and it seems to work. Just what is wrong with my setup?

    LIVESTOCK:
    1 Molly
    1 baby molly
    2 Neon Tetra
    3 Rummy Noses (They look like drunkeds )

    SUBSTRATE:
    ADA 4cm in depth

    PLANTS:
    Foxtail
    Nana(I think)
    ?(some carpet plant that looks like mini grass!)

    CO2:
    Nutrafin's DIY via airstone

    LIGHTS:
    8W (On 10 hours a day)

    ADDITIVES:
    Seacam's Flourish every water change(once a week/30%)
    Seacam's Excel(3ml every 5 days)
    Plant's Ferts (3 drops every water change)
    Anti Chlorine (10 drops every water change)

    Hi babygrand,

    Welcome to Aquatic Quotient!

    You might like to post your algae query in the respective section to get a better response. But Desmond's suggestion definitely works for brown algae.

    Cheers,
    I have dwarf cichlids in my tanks! Do you?

    They definitely won't! I got one's that's very active but scared of me and one's that is less active and slightly round at the belly. He looks alright to me, though i am not sure whether it's bloaty belly.
