    I remember those days! I had vallis growing out of the tank it was everywhere - now I wish I could grow something!  The BBA kills everything in my tank.

    Love the way you have landscaped the tank though, looks yummy :)

    Cheers.
    bba is giving me trouble to on the top of the plants infront of the spraybar, all others are ok.
    i have uped my co2 but no joy.  :mad:
    im limited to how i have the tank as the cae changes and digs up most things.
    i have also tryied to give the baby corys some protection when feeding by having denser areas and the forground plants seem to help them out of the caes way.
    wish i could start again with a new tank tho.  :)

    OMG the amount of times I have said I would love to start from scratch!  But seriously the tank looks lovely - don't go there! lol

    I removed my spraybar before I went on holiday as it really wasn't helping.

    I have two huge SD's that eat everything in sight and three (naughty but yummy) plecs that destroy anything I plant, so I know what you mean about the plants!

    A while ago I thought I might go back to basics and just have a tank full of small fish that dont produce so much waste, but to be honest I prefer my tank with BBA and the fish that I love rather than a tank full of fish that I really probably won't get so much enjoyment out of.

    But, an additional tank is always on the agenda..... LOL

    Your tank looks fabulous....I could never dream of having anything like that....Do you have all sand then or gravel with sand on top?
    And how do you clean it without all the plants coming up? That's the part that i don't get??
    Everytime i clean my gravel with the gravel cleaner everything comes up out of the gravel...and they are only plastic??
    We were as you are,
    and you will be as we are now!!!!!!!!!
    (Saw this on a gravestone before, very apt for any situation in life, as in young people making fun of older etc!!!!)

    Kaz10 know what you mean as i bought 3 sae`s to eat the bba and they are cool, i was missing out.

    cheers clothahump but i could not find that post when i started this of.

    Thanks keepontrying, i have tetra substrate and a mix of play sand and proper stuff, as for cleanning i dont need to much as the 32 strong cory clan do a great job, there are trumpet snails to.
    it is easyer than you think to clean sand and the plants soon root up if they get chance.
    i have gravel in my other tank and i find debris gets throught the gravel were as it sits on top of sand.
    dont push the cleanner so deep and the plants might stay or add some lead to them. :)
