    underwhelmed by the progress this week...
    adding some cleaners to the tank.

    cleaners have done a good job of moving dirt around, maybe they even ate some?

    Drop back to my normal LED stick for the week - so no grow lights on the perfect 10's .. wanna see if algae is on the cards with the light change.

    How was the algea on the anubias? Did the higher leaves have more algea?

    Well that happened rather quick ... duckweed in all 3 tanks ... something had to be done.

    simple and easy - new favorite tool for the removal - grid cut to fit the smaller tank.

    single drag removes loads of the green crop

    it is even useful to catch less dense amounts

    I still use a small net - but now it is much simpler - you never get it all out on the first go.

    Slow weekend ... catching up from the weeks chaos. Almost forgot I had some plaxing that needed planting ... a bit large for the perfect 10's but here goes.

    Each tank got a few leaves ..

    Ok some got more than a few leaves

    Got to love the dust puddle when I work in the up side down tank.

    BIG WC to move the tanks from the desk to the shelf. Not sure if I want to hook the air pump back up on these tanks ... maybe run them naked for a while see how things go.

    No filtration, and fluctuating light ( played with several tubes ) means this is an algae mess ... but a long term project I still want to see how it runs not that things are heating up.

    While I wait on ABandC

    RSK landed new stock - yes all 4 tanks sizes - but that allowed me to get the 4 smallest in the sets.

    I might try my hand at nano e(im)mersed ...

    Thinking about it still.

    Those are really cool little tanks. Perfect for shrimp or just keeping some different plants in

    Yeah ... the clarity is good on these - esp when you have no algae ;-)

    Aquaempire will ship if you ask .. or any LFS that gets stock from RSK will be able to order a set.

    My bad .. should have spend some time on these tanks over the last few months ... did add some water today and pulled some duckweed and algae ... more to happen later.
