Just got back into the hobby after a 8 year break due to college & life and I'm glad to see you still thriving out here OG, keep it up! I keep things balanced with a good amount of frogbit and water lettuce and of course a heavily planted tank. I recently removed a lot of the floaters to give the carpeting plants some relief and all algae hell broke loose to where my algae crew couldn't keep up so I had H202 step in. The mosses take a little beating but that's a last ditch effort if manual isn't enough.

as I've been following the growth of this "high maintenance" tank, it seems like the plants never grow...
i don't know if you put dirt in it, but it doesn't look like it.
tank might have been more stable with dirt to help increase the plant load.. maybe not a lot of dirt, but like a half inch.

after the first 2 months of heavy water changes (which is why you probably avoided putting dirt in the tank in the first place) my 29dirted was almost self sustained, no ferts nor co2, just a filter that i clean like once every 3 months, and water top offs.
I've got 20 tetras
and probably 800 trumpet snails :/

p.s. thanks for giving me the knowledge and courage to dirt a tank for the first time!

On my home tanks (29g, 10g, 2.75g) I plant every bare patch of substrate with something, keep duckweed and frogbit in everything, run my lights on a timer for 8 hours a day, and do a 50% water change once a week. All of my tanks also have Amano shrimp and snails.

On my work tank (20g High) I run two filters with sponges over the intakes, one with ceramic rings and the other with pothos, keep the lighting dim because it's by the storefront windows, add a ton of floating plants, and give it a 25% water change once weekly.

Heavy load of easy to grow plants in good plant substrate with algae eating shrimps first. Set the light timer to 6 hours of light daily. Break up the lighting schedule to 3 hours in the morning and 3 hours at night so you don't give algae the chance to complete its growth cycle. Do a 20 percent water change once every two weeks to allow the beneficial bacteria to grow. Don't add any liquid fertilizer in the early stages of your tank, unless you want algae, let the plant substrate supply the nutrients and let the plants adjust and grow in its environment. Then a month later, add some algae eating fish. After another month slowly add the fish you want. As the tanks bio load increases, you must also increase the percentage of your water change.

Wooo! Go Eagles!!! That was one hell of a game! I can't wait for the parade!!! Don't worry Dustin! The Browns won't be bad forever. Honestly, I think they're on the verge of becoming something. They play too hard to lose that much. Plus, I heard Cleveland is a football town just like Philly! Patience! Hypothetical question, how would you react if the Browns traded the #4 pick for Foles???

My tank is balanced by a big plant mass with Nymphea zenkeri (tiger lotus) and Heteranthera zosterifolia (star grass) and two eheim 2080 filters on a 100 gallon tank. Also I do two 50% water changes a week in a routine that never changes to promote stability and consistency.

How I balance ALL my tanks....
A ridiculous plant load! And not just alot of plants, but 90% heavy feeding plants. My best is a 60 gallon tank, 50 Neon Tetra, 2 cories, and 2 Yoyo. 40% water changes once a week. Lights are on 13 hours.
Not a single spot of algae!

I do that, plus snails and shrimp. Brainless success.
On my "nice" tank, I maintain the plant load as high as my cheap lights can support, and use the lowest level of ferts I can get away with - watching for plant signs of distress. I'm at maybe 25% recommended fert dosage, with good health all around.
