Description

Aqua Design Amano 60f iwagumi featuring Pa-Hai Stones and utricularia graminifolia planted in Ada Amazonia. I was a bit concerned about using Amazonia, but with heavy monitoring during the cylce, I was able to keep the ug from completely melting. There was a 2 week dry start before flooding. The water was been changed 100% daily for one month. No ferts are used. CO2 has been removed as of 5/8/18 and re added 7/18/18 A hydor inline heater is used on the eheim 2211.

      Stunning setup mate. I recently bought a 60F and have begun looking at lights. Have you had any algae problems while running the Aquasky? It's quite powerful for a shallow tank, which is why I ask. Thank you.

        No, I have not had any algae problems with aquasky whatsoever. This tank doesn't use fertilizers and is limited to one betta fish. No other livestock exists. Recently, I've rescaped it in tank. Btw, sorry for this delay in response.
