    I didn't like the odd piece of wood over to the left so had to move that looks much better now I think also altered the angle of powerheads so valis now sits up instead of being blown to one side




    200L waterchange done , filter floss replaced sit and enjoy for remainder of the day

    Things are still growing away at a very rapid rate and looking healthy and currently no sign of any algae









    I also cant seem to get any nitrate reading I've upped the Ei dose and been feeding heavy so looks like the plants are just munching through it.

    Tank looks great. You don't seem to have a large stock of fish in the tank so any nitrates are more than likely being used by the plants. Assuming with the pH and EI you are dosing CO2 as well? Will repeat that the tank looks phenomenal, great just doesn't cut it, nice job.

    That is a lot more fish than i would have thought but in order of impact to bioload you don't have too much.

    High to low/nil
    pleco
    red tail shark
    clown loaches
    tetras
    cory
    guppies and shrimp are near null

    The tank is 6x2x2 right? That isn't a lot compared to all the plants you have. Are the plecos mainly wood raspers, or omnivores?

    I find the raspers to be the biggest waste producers as what goes in pretty much comes right out. The omnivores are a bit more efficient with their digestion.

    Is that a sprite in the right of the tank-and to the left of the middle (picture-wise)? They are good nitrogen hogs too.

    No it's not 6x2x2 its 6ft long 2ft tall and 18 inches deep the plecs mainly seem to suck on the wood and the occasional algae wafer.

    And not sure what you mean by Sprite I'm still learning about what plant is what
