Re: 70l 2tf learning curve

Yeh come to think of it I haven't seen either for a while. The last time I saw 3 lines they were mixed in with a tank of Beckford pencilfish. The coral reds when I saw them last were very expensive something like £6-7 each!!

Love your chubby oto. I've got a few Parotocinclus jumbo in with mine and they certainly rule the roost, great at keeping the wood clean.

Really looking forward to seeing how your tank progresses.

Re: 70l 2tf co2 tmc LEDs TNC complete +

well i started with a short hair algae over most of the plants but really bad on the crypts and valis so asked about on here and was told to try dropping my light and doing a larger water change also introducing more otts witch i was going to do as i only had the one but always keep mine in groups of 5 upwards so i dropped my light from 70% to 50% did an extra 10% water change also got 4 more otts almost 48 hours latter and the is a massive improvement

70l 2tf co2 tmc LEDs TNC complete +

After a lot of messing about with light and co2 and ferts to stop my bba problem I thought that I had got the upper hand but it seems not as I is making a bloody good comeback and I'm now lost as what to do my light is now at 40% ferts at 0.5 ml per day but I just can't shift it
