I just picked up a JBJ Nano 24. Removed the back sump wall and black sticker. Bought a Fluval U2 filter system, will be buying a small skimmer, and doing a nice LED conversion. Going to do Seahorses and some coral when it gets cycled in.

So we moved and I had to break my tanks down... and we have been in the new house for about 2-3 months and still no tank... the baby on the way kinda takes all the money... but I want to set my 5 gallon back up... when I broke it down I have the dwarf hair grass going good! If I get it up and running I will plant it for a month or 2 and then maybe add some freshwater shrimp and guppys or a betta... we will see if the boss (wife) lets me lol

Hey all.

So back story of this tank is that it is housed in a environmental center and is for New Mexico Rio Grande natives. It is 500 gallons and currently houses a flathead cat and 2 longnose gars. I am involved with an internship with the center and am caring for the tank! I am very excited to work with such a large tank and large fish.







The director wants more Rio Grande Native Fish and here is the list that they want: American eel, speckled chub, gizzard shad, smallmouth buffalo, and/or river carpsuckers. They want to show how the natural Rio Grande looked.

I at least want an algae eater like some river carpsuckers to stir up some of the sediment on the bottom.

First concern: ALGAE

First question. How do I get rid of this blue/green algae?



I've tried water changes, a physical removal and it grew back over the weekend, and suctioning it out.
I know an algae eater wont eat this kind but will a bottom fish stir up the sediment enough for the algae to not grow? (If it is biological it needs to be native)

Next question. I read that fast growing plants will help reduce the algae by taking up the nitrates before the algae can use it. What would be the best plants to have with these fish?
