Thanks hydrophyte and laimyzaz, I love this little tank. Makes me seriously think about changing my big one for another nano! Been messing around with the wood a bit today. Also I found a great pipe cleaning device from Eheim, it can just about get round the curves of the ADA Do-Aqa nano pipes. So I need not remove my glass wear in shame anymore .
Her's the device and my now clean pipes. Will post some tank pics later when the water clears - Tom
A Tiny brush is attached to some stiff monofilament (like lawn mower string), comes with other larger brushes too
Few Update shot, yes again I could do more moss trimming but what can you do. I've moved the wood around a bit but otherwise it remains the same. The glasswear and eheim classic are still running in dead silence, which is a must in a tank that shares your bedroom! I'm quite excited by the pico challenge, I will get a Tbro styled version for the comp..... as well as re-scaping my big tank, fun, fun
Thanks for the comments Guys, I get immense pleasure from this tank. The shrimp and microrasboras are a joy to watch. I'm going to harvest some moss for my Pico entry. The Vase came from John Lewis see my entry
A water change made me want to post some update pics. I get so much pleasure out of this little cosmos, that I like it even half full ! I've been trying to keep on top of the pruning but I never was too good at that.... Decided that my main tank needed some CRS action, it's full of cherry shrimp dezpite looking a bit of a shambles they're breeding like rabbits. My cats got excited when they spied an old food bowl being used to transport a shrimp cocktail
Just updating this post, not much has changed but that's the nice thing about this tank. No CO2, very occasional ferts and waterchanges, slow passage of time. Trying to reduce the shrimp population by exporting them to my big tank. Seems to be helping as the remaining shrimps are now growing again.
