Thanks. The plants are pretty stunted as low light and recently brown algae have cause a major leaf die off. Hopefully it will perk up with the new lights.

mmmm.... no. Why should I do that?

Everything I have read says to slant jour heater so the thermostat doesn't read recently heated water.

I like your tank, and a little green algae actually looks good on that wood.

If you want, try this method:

Tank is looking very nice! You are lucky to live in Hong-Kong plant and fish wise. Have you been to the "Gold Fish Street" in Mong-Kok(sp.)?

I'd look into maybe getting some kind of foreground plant. You should easily be able to get java moss there as I remember seeing it for sale at several shops. Some java fern or anubias attached to that driftwood would look very nice also Smile

You should see it close up!

It is very difficult to keep the nitrates under control - 20ppm out of the tap Rolling Eyes

Nonamethefish - That street is the only place to go in HK! I spend ages walking up and down it trying to identify the different species of fish and plants. Everything I have comes from there.

I have some java fern at the ends of the wood. I did have some java moss but I took it out as it couldn't compete with the brown algae. There are some fragments on the wood so maybe it will make a comeback.

Thanks for the ideas. Now going to see what anubias look like... Cool

Yep Smile When I went over there to see my relatives and my uncle found out about my interest in fish-he had to take me there. The prices were great for many of the plants and the variety was also impressive. Prices on other things were great too-brought back some "souvenirs" so to speak...lol The things that stick out in my mind(though I might not remember details correctly) would be one large planted aquarium store with 2 phenomenal display tanks(both 100+ gallons each...for some reason the one I thought was better was hiding in the back). Also another for the most part typical fish store which on the inside had an arch shape SW aqarium for the inner doorway. I saw Anubias a few times during my walk so it should be pretty easy to find Smile
