Hi guys, well, Little Mountain has been going strong for nearly 2 years now. It's gone through many changes but the basics have not altered. I've practiced using stems in a nano and found out that it works very well but it's pretty hard work, i've played around with dosing, CO2 and none CO2, lighting and all sorts. It's been a great learning curve and put me in good stead for future nanos. Unfortunately this tank is no more, on my weekly water change last month i slipped with the bucket and the falling water piled into the substrate (fine AS) and made a terrific mess. The amonia spike was massive and the dust that came up from it was unbelievable. For weeks now i've been trying to rid the tank of the dust, in one attempt i did four 50% water changes, this coupled with the amonia and general poor conditions lost me a good few crystal reds. Even using loads of filter floss the dust was sitting on the leaves of all my plants and seemed to be hindering their growth, especially the M. mezianum. With all this in mind and an endless battle which i was forever loosing I decided to rescape. With a lot of help form our very own nano master, Graeme Edwards we got to work and here is the result... Stats: Tank: 30 x 20 x 20 Lighting: 11w ArcPod Substrate: Tropica Aqua Care, ADA AquaSoil, ADA Aquasoil Fine, ADA Bright Sand and Unipac Senagall Sand. Hardscape: Unipac Fossilised Wood, locally collected wood. Ferts: ADA Brightly Step 2, ADA Special Lights, ADA Phyton Git. FIltration: Fluval 105 with Cal Aqua pipe work. Plant list to follow. Any thoughts and critiques welcome. Cheers, Dan.
