Brilliant, John.

One of the best nanos around at the moment, and made even better by your success at eradicating the nuisance algae.

Kudos.

All the best with your next project; whatever size you decide.

Thank,s George that means a lot from one so talented :thumbup: ,i am looking forward to my new tank but it will be a little longer yet as i am saving for it instead of raiding the saving,s account :lol: ,

I actually find maintaining an 8ft x 3ft tank just as easy as one your size, but my 60 litre dennerle "nano" has gone to pot with a covering of horrid black slimey algae.

The biggest pain with larger tanks would have been waterchanging if you did it by bucket, but do it by hose and its a doddle.

I could understand John if he is an oldie lol, but then again when is old actually old? My breeder mate in Belgium is in his 60s and maintains 70 odd tanks. :D

So I dont know, we all have to make the decision thats suits, but im just trying to encourage people who if thinking bigger, go for the biggest you can otherwise youll only end up ugrading and spending more money in the end.

I guess another counter point, Larger tanks will be more expensive to run and harder to get flow and co2 distribution even.

Hmm...

No stems and non co2?
That's what I have in my 160l and if it wasn't for the moss (takes about 1 hour monthly to maintain in this tank) it would be near zero 'wet hands in tank' maintenance. Just WC's and filter cleaning. Downside... it has taken 2 years to grow in.
