    Seiryu stone mountain

    Just rescaped my Fluval Spec

    Waiting for tank to cycle...
    Waiting for #5 co2 tank hydrotest...

    I've been out of the scape scene for about 2 years.

    Any opinions/advice?

    Lights? I'm using the original LED light from fluval spec right now. I have a first Gen Finnex LED light with 2 strips of 7k lighting that creates hair algae like crazy. I don't think i want to use that anymore.

    What should I add? Floor plants? Moss? (I already have a straw of willow moss behind the rock)

    Fish or shrimp? thinking about fire red...

    What should I change?

    Where can I find a tiger nerite snail in orange County? Is there a way to tell from male and female snails? Don't want it laying eggs everywhere.

    Before

    This looks great! I'm a big fan of moss in low light tanks because it looks cool and is easy to keep. If it's a newer Spec I hear the lights are good enough for low light plants.

    I'm not sure about places in Orange, but Nerites are pretty easy to find. I've never had a problem with mine laying eggs; they prefer brackish water for breeding. If you have shrimp or fish they should probably take care of them, especially if you get amano shrimp. Mine eat everything.

    So I decided to have shrimp, pair of panda cory, 2 Amano shrimp, a couple of otos, and 1 nerite snail.

    What should I get for carpet plant. What was the carpet plant that starts creating air bubbles during the day? Was it hc?

    Any carpeting plant can pearl (the air bubbles) given the right lighting and conditions (usually more so with pressurized co2).
    Please don't quote my posts it is unnecessary , I will still read the thread without the extra "you have been quoted on SCAPE" notification email.

    This looks great, I also have a new model of the Fluval Spec V. And like you said, the light output is way too strong, I had hair algae up the yin yang as well. What I did to tame it was attach a scuffed up piece of clear lexan plastic to the bottom side of the light to diffuse it a bit. It seems to have done the trick, no more hair algae! I have a couple horned nerites in my tank, i had them since they were very small. Now that they have been around for nearly 3 years, they are are mature and are laying eggs like crazy, it sucks!

    The little white dots are co2 bubbles. So small you can't see them looking from the front of the tank.

    I looks like you are putting in your micro and macro nutrients in. I am not too familiar with your setup so bear with me. How often and how much do you do your water changes?
    I just started my Fertilization routine for my tanks but I learned I had too much Phosphate, which plants like, but in my tank they did not soak up very fast. So they started to look dull and I had an algae outbreak.
