Saying luck isn't said to devalue what you've done - you're right balance is key - but I still think a little luck goes a long way in this hobby

Most definitely, I have been lucky too not have any algae in this scape.

Looking great, I'm not one for water testing but I do find myself wondering what your water parameters are. And what % are you running your lights at now ?

Thank you. I’ve been running the lights at 40% for awhile but have pushed them back up to 50% now.

Any reason for wondering what the water parameters are? I have end Taiwan bee shrimp breeding in this tank so that can’t be that bad lol.

No not thinking it's bad, quite the opposite...was especially wondering about your TDS. Is your tap water soft or hard - what's the water report like in your neck of the woods, do you use RO water, that sort of thing.

Ah I always think the worse sorry lol.

I have always used ro water in this tank with salty shrimp added to the ro water and then top up using tap water, but for the last couple of water changes I’ve used tap. My tap water is soft in Pembrokeshire Wales, Tds of tap water is around 110-120, perfect for Taiwan bees and the Ph is 7 or just below. The actual tank TDS is around 150ish ( just went to test and TDS meter has ran out of battery) it’s definitely not high.

Here a water report lol

Trimmed the carpet the weekend, looks neater now. It will more then likely take a month to see any growth on it.
