    You will ... but it does take time ... that tank has years for plant cuttings in it .. FYI this was my first BIG tank must be 8 or 9 years old - has seen many transformations.

    Reduced the photoperiod now. Sick of algae, I'd rather wait 3 hours longer for the lights :)

    @f-fish your tank looks great :)

    Got some good growth going ... yeah algae is a given when we cut down on WC's ... so reducing the lights is the only way to slow things down a bit.

    Probably the first year that most of the big tanks are semi-ok.... the shelf ... it does not like the cold snap.

    some tanks a just a little slow on the uptake.

    Using the frase 'semi ok' is a complete understatement @f-fish. Your tanks look awesome. Wish I can get your lush plant growth going, at least in 1 of my tanks.

    No man that is like asking a parent to pic a child ;-)

    Thanks all, I must confess - this really is the best all of them have looked in a looooong while. Less light, no CO2 and top-up vs WC is the name of the game at the moment. I could show you the others .. but they are algae fests or WIP.

    Nothing special on the fertz .. whatever I lay my hand on ;-)
