I had it down before due to the air stone and bubbles dropping on the light before... could fill it back up again will have 1 problem with the out let 🤔 will do this tonight or tomorrow
Is your new light water proof?
Hi @Andy should of did this the first time so this is the light as you can see on the side there a little airholes... this why it not fully waterproof... other that it can get wet by splash and such just can't drown it in the tank.

Thanks @Andy I think the tank looks better too... only today I notices the root plants are lacking something...

I'm guessing potassium deficiency...
So tomorrow I will put in some root tabs for these guys...

OK Today water change... No glass cleaning didn't need it...
Trim some of the Lagenandra meeboldii Red some of them were melting as you can see in the picture...
Root tabs went in yesterday...
Find racer on his back again so I put him back on the right way...
Do you think I need to bring down the light a bit as it also burning on edges as well or do I need to add more fertilizer?
Maybe get one of those all in one fertilizer?

Hello guys here this week log I think I miss last week...

What did I do today well I moved the sockets inside the cab... did a water change and that all I have done...

Oh and I built a jar aquarium no lights no filter no heater and no fish just bladder snails in it.

So you can see the full wall and the side bit I want to fill this up so I was thinking
Plan A in the gap can fit a 3ft tank have a wall garden then a 4ft tank (use 2 walls)
Plan B 4 ft tank then a wall garden then a shelve system and have lots of 25L tanks 6 in total (use 1 wall)

😆😆 I though so...
Unless I win the Lotto I think I give a reef a miss...
But I have two nice Walls to do something...
It time to move away from the Man cave sort of look and into more of a nature sort of look so I don't stay single for rest of my life. 🤪🤣
