    Hello all , hope everyone is safe and ok , just a little update on the tank , I haven't had a chance to visit the forum in a while .

    I have added 4kgs of Pumice stone to the 1 sump chamber and removed the K1 media and the water seems more cleaner , so Chamber 1 Foam / Filter mat , Chamber 2 Lava rock and Chamber 3 Pumice stone,

    I have removed the guppies and mollies and stocked with the following ,
    10 rummy nose tetras ,
    6 Dwarf rainbow boesmanis ,
    10 Rainbow Boesmanis ,
    10 Bronze Corys ,
    6 panda Corys ,
    6 Sterbai Corys ,

    I want to add more Rummy nose and maybe some more corys .

    Please pardon the java moss as I turned up the flow in the tank and it came loose .

    I still have note found the right light as yet as I am still using an 18 watt LED 4 foot light as I am double minded in getting the LED Zetlight as these are mostly Epiphyte plants in the tank . I am thinking of going back to the old Faithfull T5 Sylvania Glowlux tubes and

    Pic attached taken this morning .

    Cheers

    Currently stocking :
    2 Red spotted Severums
    9 Rainbow Boesmani ,
    4 Dwarf Rainbows ,
    5 Geophagus Surinamensis ,
    5 Electric Blue Accara
    +- 20 cory cats
    Albino Algae Eater

    Please mind the bad quality pics .
