    I have always liked the look you create in your tanks
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    So we had a major diatom/brown algae thing happening for quite a while. I left the tank alone to sort itself out. The brown got that bad you could not see into the tank at all lol I honestly didn't think it was ever going to level out, but it slowly did. I do not have any pics of the real bad stage, not that you could have seen anything but brown lol

    Glass has not been cleaned, this is what is came back to


    Trimmed weed in front of rocks, general tidy up. The Betta has since moved back to his own tank
    Lots of tanks

    Yes me too, I didn't know wether it would recover. The DIY substrate I knew had to go through a settle period (done it before) but I've not had a tank go as feral as this one did lol
