It’s has been 01 month, and I am feeling confident enough to introduce fish and shrimp in the tank. I also planted one more species which is Lilaeopsis brasiliensis. Other plants are adapting well and growing nicely. I might have first background trimming in next two week times. Until next update and enjoy my short video the one and only cleaning crew.

I am happy with its progress so far. Less sign of algae and tank is super clean. Only one slight inconvenience is that wood still leeks tannins. Probably it will be gone in next couples of month

I did my first background trimming to create shape. Also I left a small area for planting Rotala goias, which is super rare and hard to find in local market. I think i am a bit lucky because I received this small share from LFS. The owner shared with me four small plots, and said he wanted me to nurse it as well.

Weather is changing from spring to summer. Temperature is shifting from average below 20 to 30. Also you are easily seeing the sign of this change by the frequence of light rains.

We may experience first summer heat wave by end of this April, and of course, bolbitis is the first one be impacted. But fear not, I have plan for summer below is cinematic version of 60cm filmed by my old phone

This week our temperature is increasing 5 degrees compared to last week. Humidity is almost 100%. In order to maintain ideal environment I am using a water chiller. The good things I can keep my tank’s temperature to 3 or 4 lower than ambient temperature. The bad thing is
