It'll sort itself out over time. My tank was horrid until I checked the shrimp in and boom, was spotless. I also had DAS though so that probably helped.

Ive dicided i want a smaller leafed or bushyer stem as the backround, thinking of taking the hygrophila pinnatifida out and puting somthing like Alternanthera reineckii 'Mini', rotala mini type 2 or mini butterfly id like some red in there... Any suggestions or does any one have some cuttings to trade or buy?

Looks good..... You looking for something with red in it?

I think a rotala would look good.. Bit hard to see in my overgrown tank but I think mines rotala pink.... Not much pink atm as I trimmed it 2 weeks ago.

I think live stock from Dave needs a 3kg esky. Any chance I could tag along and share freight? I am after some DAS and DRN if you still have some space to spare.

Back and centre you can see one untrimmed stem with a bit of colour.....

Can I please get 20 x DAS and 20 x DRN? I am happy for you to reduce the numbers if this quantity will put the freight up.

Also, could you please PM me your payment details. Happy to send you the $. :-)

Thanks!

yeah man i think some red will make the tank more interesting, once the hair grass is lush and green i think a red stem will look good as the back round. id love mini butterfly if it would be as red as the pics you see but ive read thats not a stable colour and is actually a stress response haha 

that looks nice dude if you have any cuttings available in the near future let me know

So, I've changed the tank a little again big thanks to @inverted for the stems! Once the new shrimp eat all the algae, the belem fills out more and the new stems fill out the back i think the tank will look exactly how i hoped it would!

Saw this in person. A very nice tank. Hope the DASs and DRNs do their job!

I still think you should hook up that slightly larger CO2 canister. :crazy:

I think the dino spit might be helping :aha-!:

i keep disturbing the algae to to break it up, every time i do it the shrimp all swarm out and start eating it! My patience is starting to pay off! Algae battles aren't won over night haha
