Hello all, I'm new here in the forum, having just registered and made an introduction yesterday. As promised, here are some current photos of my tank. I intend to keep a journal to document the growth and expansion of my blue velvet colony. My current tank parameters are: PH: 7.4 - I have tried to lower this to 7.2 with PH down but a day after seemingly successfully lowering the PH it shoots back up Water: Tap water treated with Seachem Prime Temperture: ~25°C Ammonia: 0ppm - I was struggling with high ammonia a few weeks ago but there was nothing in the tank except for some shrimp snowflakes (I left it in for a week, maybe that's why?). Interested to know if this happens to others here? Nititrite: 0ppm Nitrate: 10ppm KH: 100ppm GH: 100ppm Tank and Equipment: - Upgraded to Fluval Edge 46L lighting (42 LEDs instead of 21) - AquaOne 25w heater - Sochting Oxydator Mini - Eden 501 cannister filter with an extra bag of carbon (replaced HOB filter that came with the tank) - Aquael 3w UV sterilizer Fauna: - 13 Blue Velvet Shrimps - 1 Riffle Shrimp Flora: - Hairgrass (Elocharis Acicularis) - Flame Moss (Taxiphyllum sp.) - Phoenix Moss (Fissidens Fontanus) Without further ado, some photos of my tank: This is the front view of my tank: From the top down: Some of my blue velvets in the tank: My setup: Thank you for looking and feel free to leave comments!
