Awesone, thank for sharing, gunnered72! I love the look of your 50 Litre Tanganyikan Shellie - what fish do you have in there? All of those tanks look so well kept, not a spot of algae in sight!

Currently I have a Juli Dickfeldi, 3 male Neoloamprolougus Multifasciatus, a baby Albino Bristlenose (eventually to be rehomed) and 6 Nerite Snails...I am currently waiting on a breeder friend to supply me with 9 female Multis at which point I will throw in a bunch of shells for them to establish a colony...

50% weekly water changes, sensible lighting schedules (max 8 hours), lots of plants, dosing Easy Carbo, sensible feeding and good algae eating teams keep my tanks for the most part algae free....When my plastic plants do get a bit dirty after time I swap them out for a few days and let them dry out in the sun (any algae on them vanishes this way) Best algae eaters in my opinion (Nerite Snails, Rubbernose Plecos and Ottos)

Couldn't agree more with the nerites. Mine makes light work of any that appears in my 60l all by himself! And I'll be getting oto's just as soon as my tank is established. Very excited!

Nice looking tanks. But I don't agree re the best algae eater. SAE gets my vote, they will eat BBA.  happy

I didnt mention SAEs because they grow too big (6 inches) and have to be kept in groups...But! , they are awesome algae eaters when it comes to any kind of filament algae.....As regards green coat algae on rocks etc and  green spot algae that appears on your glass nothing rivals Nerites...Cant remember the last time I had to scrape my glass clean....Rubbernoses keep bigger leafed plants such as Anubias and Swords spotless and Ottos do the same to smaller leafed plants....

Of course I enjoyed them all, very much.  I know my native fish, even not to my locale, but I had trouble identifying your coldwater inhabitants. Gambusia? A shiner I am unfamiliar with?  In any case, lots of inspiration!

Your tanks are beautiful!

I guess at least some of the plants in your Betta tank are plastic? I wonder if they will hurt the flimsy fins of Bettas?
