This is a discussion on ADA 60P & 5G Do!Aqua Mini-M (Dou) within the Tank Journals forums, part of the Aquarium Related Chat category; Great journal!...
Thanks Mark x).
Brio35 Update: Friends have asked me how I'm liking the setup - so far, it's only okay - I still find the vertical specs difficult to work with while maintaining it's original look (while trying to stop the side effects of additional ambient light from the living room). I have managed to control most of the algae, and it's slowly filling in! I did not dose for quite some time and kind of let the algae run its course (then manually removed everything) - which seemed to do the trick. The right side I played with again, and the wabi-kusa style is slowly filling out (REAL slow). No close-up photos yet and I find the wabi-kusa side growth to be oddly slow (perhaps not strong enough light?).
I also removed one of the original lights on the left side and replaced with a weaker one. It was too strong and causing way too many algae issues. There is an original white bulb on each side along with a weaker bulb to pair. But I may have to buy another original bulb to go onto the wabikusa side to give it a kickstart.
you know, if that tank is getting you down I'll take it off your hands
Perfection is a hard state to achieve seeing as there is no definition of it and it only exists in one's own mind. If you were to ask me, not that anyone did, but you should be rather proud of that setup me thinks. I sure would be. However seeing all your tanks I know they look that way thanks to a tireless effort so best of luck!
one more quick thing I can't help but add is that I love that hanging on the walls are framed pictures of aquascapes. That made my day
Dou, I've honestly never seen a set up like your Brio35. Extremely cool. Look forward to seeing more updates in the future on all your very well thought out aquascapes.
Do!Aqua Cube Update: Everything is growing in, falling over and it's looking like how I imagined it to be! It's pretty easy to maintain (20-30% WC once a week, top offs as necessary and 2-3 pumps of fertilizer each time). Only issue is that although my CRS/CBS are breeding, my baby survival rate isn't high like my wild CBS tank (growing past 3-4mm). Perhaps the tank just needs more time to establish... or maybe I need to feed more baby food. Hopefully the new babies that just hatched make it to adolescent stage...
looks so good! Someday I hope to achieve something I'm that proud of.
