    Tank is doing great at the moment ...

    Sure I need to clean some duckweed every other week ... maybe that is just how it is going to be.

    Shelf is very healthy under this LED tube ... my bad for not adding more light sooner.

    Rest of the tank is a slight jungle but still OK.

    The valley not so much ... it needs some TLC

    cleaned up one 1/2 of the floor.

    Going to let that grow in a bit before I do the left and back.

    Thanks guys ...

    I am playing devils advocate here ... but I suspect the "stable" temps over the last few months must have something to do with - just how low maintenance this thanks has become.

    It is not the fastest grower - but it is a grower.

    Since the minute amount of CO2 I am adding to the other tanks seems to make a nice difference, I thought I would do the same to Lucky13
    4 Days in and nothing negative to report.

    Thanks .. a few more days and still kicking the wheels, but love the growth. Leaving the rest the same for now want to see when the next new leaves push.

    Now that is the best ground cover I have ever seen. Buce is looking extremely good.

    Cleaners are on the job ... have to wonder how bad the algae would have been if it was for the truck load of BN's in this tank.
