    My kitchen nano

    Filter changed again, switched over to hob filter, tank ticks along a bit of algae though manageable, probably get round to a rescape in the new year.

    My kitchen nano

    Yep cut the bottom off in the end, the horizontal position worked ok untill I changed the light to flexi mini, it blocked light from some plants and became a pita when I neglected the tank a little, sucking in air when the tank wasn't topped up.

    Low tech water changes

    I change around 30% weekly on my low tech tanks, I've found it keeps algae at bay and shrimps happy, find the best routine that works for you and the tank, if dosing ei ferts a 1/3 recommend dose should be plenty for a low tech or less.

    A few scape's in one place (scape #3 page 3)

    Morning folks, it's been a while :-), slight change to the scape, sand removed elecharis parvula planted, Monte Carlo has decided to work its way over the hardscape so imagine the carpet will end up mixed, working on thickening the rotala background, not sure the light is showing its best colour...

    Trimming cryptocoryne balansae

    When I want to thin my balansae I grab the longest leaves and follow the leaf down to the base of its stem and pinch it off, time consuming but it doesn't leave my background looking bare.

    Cleaning glass on the outside

    White vinegar in a spray bottle or rubbed on with a cloth works for me.
