Hmm, that is interesting. Is it because of the lighting and how close it sits to the waterline? It is literally on top of the water and that is a concern of mine. Enough of a concern that I am going to scrap that light and get something more like the clip on I use on my other tanks. I took some pics this morning, still cloudy but not quite as bad as last night. Hopefully it will clear up soon so I can start working on it.

I was at petco yesterday buying crickets for my brothers tarantula when I saw that they had a new shipment of plants. They had a buy 2 get one free deal going on. I snagged myself the only two anubias in the tank (heh heh) and a pot of crypts (5 plantlets) for $10. Think its a good deal :P So glad I finally have anubias! I have 3 of the crypts behind the dirftwood formation in the back left corner. I hope they grow tall and make a good background. So this scape is still a work in progress.

I think it is the closeness to the water and how strong the light bulb is. Also, is took forever for mine to not be cloudy! But yeah, I am constantly cleaning algae off the tank sides and plants.

This morning mine still looked like fog was rolling in but much better than last night at least. I hope when I get home it will have improved. Fingers crossed. If the stupid snail would do it's job and remove the algae we would be in good shape. Can't win them all I guess?

Tank Pic Spam..

It is still in progress. This is not the final version, the plants will most likely all change except for a couple. I currently have Anubias, Umbrella, Wisteria, Peacock Fern and Java Fern with some nano marimo. This will only be heated so I am looking for lo-tech hence the reason I will be removing some of these plants. I really need to get the new fishy in there. We finally named him Dante.. pics to come of him.
