Oh, I guess my phone either autocorrected it or I misspelled it on my phone. Yes I meant scape.

So I added DIY CO2 on my tanks. Here's what they look like.

You should use an actual diffuser, you will get more CO2 dissolved as it will give off smaller bubbles, meaning it takes more time to reach the surface.

Looks good though. What recipe for the CO2 did you use.

@Kfryman: I could use a real diffuser but I'm low on budget right now lol. I could make one but I'm being lazy lol.

@VictorP: Sure you can, I'm not even great at doing NPT's yet, practice makes perfect. Do alot of research about the plants and lighting and such. Even I don't know much about it yet, I'm just giving it a go.

So it's been 6 days since I setup my aquarium and here's a lil bit of updates, photos included.

There's some diatom spots here and there but the otos are taking good care of it. I also changed my diffuser and used my old fluval CO2 diffuser. There's some dwarf hairgrass runners but not good enough to carpet the whole thing yet. As for my needle leaf ludwigia, they're doing great and growing fast too.

A quick question: where did you get those rocks? I'm starting an NPT soon and thought those rocks looked really nice in your tank. :)

Just look around the parks or go to a lake or something, there should be tons of rocks there that you could use. The ones that I have I got them at a local park.

So it's been 13 days and I could really see some progress on my carpetting (dwarf hairgrass), water wisteria, needle leaf ludwigia and hornwort. My problem is, the tank is getting alot of spot algae and I'm stuck as to how I can get rid of them. I also have some brush algae on the side *I think that's what it is*. Anyone know how to get rid of them? I also have about 5 otos in there but they're not doing a great job to maintain the tank.
