    Otos - 30L Suitable??

    30L might be a bit small as Harlequins are very active swimmers. I would hesitate to put them in anything smaller than 3ft, but I've seen them in 2ft aquaria, though. Sent from my Android using Tapatalk

    Juwel 70cm lights and non photoperiod light

    Correction: T8s are 8/8'' across = 1 inch ~ 25mm T5s are 5/8'' across = 0.625 inch ~ 16mm Your tubes are T8s EDIT: I completely forgot to answer your Qs... Lose the TerraPin bulb. I has some ultraviolet light in it, that might speed up the breakdown of some of the micro nutrients, but there's...

    Cleaning Hydor ETH

    According to Hydor, just run a soft bottle cleaner through it, but do not soak the heater.

    "Prairie Lands"... job done

    Re: "Prairie Lands"... partial full tank shot. Hmm... I can only see two different Harlequins. Trigonostigma heteromorpha & espei. Have a look here: http://fishbase.org/NomenClature/Scient ... ackstep=-2 EDIT: Oh, I forgot to add :roll: The scape is coming together very nicely indeed! And I...

    So many problems I don't know where to start!

    Here's a bit of info from Tropica's website: TROPICA PLANT NUTRITION+ They recommend 5 mL per 50 L water weekly at water change. But once you get started I suggest watching your plants. They'll let you know if something's amiss. And please note the "...if algae growth starts, PLANT NUTRITION+...

    So many problems I don't know where to start!

    I just had a look at JBL's website and none of them "...contain the algae nutrients phosphate and nitrate" [sic] :lol: API Leaf Zone contains only Potassium Phosphate and some form of iron. My advise would be to take your so-called "fertilisers", look at them, laugh at them, bin them!!! Without...

    "Prairie Lands"... job done

    Re: "Prairie Lands"...The return Nice and classic stone placement. Maybe tilt the rightmost stone a bit more or the middle one a little less? I say forget the HC and stick with the tennelus as carpet. Amano would love you for that :D

    3ft Bogwood + Anubias tank

    Sounds pretty much like what I have in mind for my nano :D Depending on your fish load you might have to dose NPK. You could mix up a batch of James' AllInOne, without the traces, as you already have ProFito. Then just dose a bit at water change. Remember it's mostly about watching your plants...

    Fish death survey

    Lost one oto, probably due to transportation stress, they looked pretty well fed from the LFS. Then I lost 2 out of 10, wild caught - shame on me, Microdevario kubotai. After getting 10 Paracheirodon simulans, of which a couple didn't look too well and died within a couple of days, I suddenly...

    Saintly's 120cm' Fraggle rock' THE BIG STRIP

    Re: Saintly's 120cm' Fraggle rock' I'd go for a small-ish shoal of rock dweeling fish that would only dash out every now and again. That would compliment the simplicity and tranquilness of the scape IMO
