Penny's Lane-A BC29 Journey. FTS Oct.2020

Just got an order from gulf coast eco systems (https://www.live-plants.com/index.htm). Adding come calciferous macros to this tank, as well as a bit of various culepura to try to help with nutrient export. They sent so much, I've got to dedicate a full day I think just to try to get it into the tank nicely.

Will get a pic up when it's all done-hopefully tomorrow afternoon.

After pissing everything off for a couple of hours moving stuff around and trying to plant some macros...

Thinking of adding 1 or 2 gorgs from the 14 to add some height to the back left.

Switching from seachem A & B to Red Sea to sea if I get better results. Also adding Red Sea AB+ to dose daily.

Thank you

 

im not familiar with the Nuvo 20, but I would not run a tank without an auto too off system.  Depending on what you plan to put in it, a doser will help simplify your life. I don’t have a skimmer and rely solely on water changes for nutrient export. As far as pumps and power heads go, it really depends on what you put in it, same for lighting. Hope this helps

:tears: I murdered my lawnmower blenny...During routine maintenance I took the media rack out and over to the kitchen sink to clean it. Took the filter floss out, took the carbon bag out and started running hot water through it. Several seconds later I noticed the fish flailing, barely. I was too late. How the heck he got inside the media rack I'll never know. Guess he jumped into the back chamber at some point, but he is/was so much bigger than the holes in the rack. :tears::tears:

Aww, so sorry penny.  Sometimes they end up in places you don’t expect them to be in.

Celebrated 33 years together with hubby yesterday. Today he surprised me by letting me buy 2 new corals when we went to the LFS for water!

 

We've been missing the BTA, so here is another one. It was definitely more rose colored in the store, so I need to play around with my lighting to see if I can replicate it.

And a little maxi mini carpet anemone that came with a free Rhodactic 'shroom attached to the rock. Could't get a picture because it's on the other side of the rock and I didn't think to take the shot before I placed it in the tank.PA180256.thumb.jpeg.e7ed8aba7c5ed2dcf9929d0c9cff0ba4.jpeg

I don't remember what the purple and green ones are called, but they were looking particularly fresh, and I had the camera out anyway so here they are

And speaking of Utter Chaos. I'm battling some pretty serious algae issues again/still. Some kind of turf algae. IDK

And Bubble algae everywhere. Can't really get a good shot of it. Added 2 emerald crabs today. Hopefully they will go to town on all of it.

Thanks. Except for the algae issues, it's doing pretty well. Clowns aren't too "happy" right now because I moved the torch that they were living in to a different spot. They seem a little confused. :haha:
