Thread: First foray into planted tank 60*45*45

    Ended up getting another 13 black neons to bring it to 22 in total. Also got 10 crs which I hope will survive as the guy at the lfs gave me an odd look! Tank is heavily planted though so fingers crossed

    Tetras are out and about now, will see how feeding goes. I'm going to try brine shrimp and see if they take it.

    Found a jumper this morning, and one dead shrimp so not great but that's life (and death) I suppose.

    Haven't managed to sight any of the remaining 9 RCS though, so hopefully they are just hiding somewhere in the plants and not in the stomachs of the black neons :/

    I'd be looking for shrimp activity morning and night just to put my mind at ease. Good luck with the shrimp and I hope you find them alive and happy

    Shrimp are still around, but only ever see one or two at a time.

    Another jumper yesterday.

    Still no major improvements with algae so going to turn light intensity down and see what happens.

    10 crs wont make a dent in algae. If you had 200 then yes. Similar with cherries.

    DAE will be more efficient.

    Hopefully they can breed in there but if not, i've found siphoning the best way to battle the brown hair algae (toothbrush is only really useful for dislodging it from plants)
