Thanks mate, appreciate that, not so well maintained but it doesn't show...yet. :)



Ah! Sorry I feel your pain. :D

One week after putting the vivid 2.0 from chihiros, the results are already Stunning;

Fine, thanks Ryan :)

My guess is that the Chihiros is on par with the Ada solar RgB , just a matter of choice and budget. ;)

Truth :cool:

Scape looking awesome under the new lighting @CooKieS nice upgrade :thumbup:
Thanks Geoffrey,yes that Upgrade was necessary and will still serve me if one day I get an bigger tank. :)

Thinking of taking the final pic of this scape in aprox. 3 weeks as it's getting hard to control....left side still needs some tweaking but I think the cave is ready;

Hi there,

I found the the way to reduce the noise from my chihiros vivid to near silence, the 3 screws that are fixing the Fan to the chassis where too tight and thus transmetting vibration from the fan to the chassis. The fan itself is Totally silent. So I removed the 3 screws and replaced them with some duck tape, works like a charm.:)

You could just screw them loose too, but if you want silence just remove them.

About the tank, I always had in the past 3 months some minor staghorn issues, it is getting worse, would love to get some help to get rid of it completely. Actually burning it with liquid carbon but it keeps coming back on hardscape and old leaves;

Could it be related to the new light? Higher intensity maybe?

Staghorn is stubborn IME.

Already got this algae with my previous light but now that I got higher intensity, plants are growing faster and staghorn too...:)

I already tried to add more CO2, no effect. I'll start dosing less micros tomorrow...

Don't worry,getting rid of algae is part of the fun of this hobby. :cool:
That´s the third aquascape I made in this 60p tank, and I always got some different kind of algae, even with the same gear...mystery of nature. :D

I've also seen some staghorn in my 60 p recently. Not worse than spotdosing excel and removing infected leaves got rid of it. You could also try my low co2, low nutrient approach ;) Everything slows down then, including algae.

What's the thinking with dosing less micros?
I wanna see if this algae is fert related. ;)

I'm actually pushing it to get the plants as red and bushy as possible for the final shot, after that I'll try your method, and then rescape. ;)

Stunning plants.
I always found staghorn to be corrected with increased maintenance, although I barely say it with your tank as it looks to be very well maintained :oops: if you don’t open your filter up often for a deep clean maybe do this. Increased water changes and filter cleaning always rid staghorn in the past for me.

While I’m here, is there a link anywhere to the chihiros vivid 2 light?.....any retailers or information on sizes available and prices. Any information would be great.

cheerio,
Ady.

Thanks Ady, I find out that my jbl e901 with the e902 head is getting dirty very quickly (maybe the foam is too fine or because of the big piece of Wood in this scape)? I'm now cleaning it once per month.

Actually 40% WC per week.

I'm now trying All in one ferts with less iron, and bazooka CO2 art instead of inline...we'll see.
:)

You can find infos on the vivid 2 on aliexpress and chihiros Facebook , I bought mine from seller ´teena aquarium ´. It´s an Incredible light for the price...just look at those colors. And after my mod on the fan it´s very silent.

This Shot of the scape, has a great sense of scale and very atmospheric. Can I pinch as a Desktop Please.
Of course, glad you like it, thanks . :)

Spotted an mama shrimp tonight, always an happy moment;

Looking good How you finding the in tank diffuser compared to inline ? Did you have to up the BPS co2 rate ?
