    Rasboras and Rummy-Nose Tetras. I’m interested to see if the live cam feature of Nest still works, assuming it is allowed here. This is my 40 gallon breeder. After five years with a natural, planted look, I sanitized it after algae took over and have re-scaped it with a fantasy castle theme. I know, very fake and colorful. But I wanted a change, and the fish seem to behave exactly as they did before.

    EDIT: I plan to leave it running all weekend. Tank light schedule, USA EST:
    Main Light: 5 PM to 9:30 PM
    Castle Mood Light: 9:30 PM to 10 PM
    Night Vision: 10 PM to 7:00 AM
    CAMERA OFF: 7:00 AM to 4:30 PM

    Thanks! In about 35 minutes the main light goes out and an LED lights up the castle. Not sure how well it will pick up on the feed. We will see.

    The cam picks up the mood lighting better than I expected. Once it goes out I’ll turn on the cam night vision to see the fish better.

    That’s the night vision. Otherwise you would see nothing in the complete darkness. The main light will be back on at 5 PM EST in full color.

    The camera is off during the day when the tank light is off. (See schedule in my original post) Otherwise, you will just be seeing a reflection of me scratching my butt on the couch, and no one wants to see that! I’m actually going to turn the cam and tank light on in about 20 minutes when I start my water change. Will probably leave it on the rest of the day.

    Tank light and camera on now until around 10 PM EST. (And then cam will stay on all night, but with night vision enabled)

    Are those little grassy plants on the bottom real or fake? Either way I love the look they give the tank.

    The little green plants are cheap and fake from Petco. But I agree with you on how it looks. I did years of live plants with varying degrees of success (been keeping tanks since 2009), but, finally, black brush and other algae types just took control of the gravel and surfaces. I moved my fish to a 20 gallon long and completely gutted the tank. I sanitized it with a little bleach/water and then filled and rinsed it about a dozen times! All contents were brand new, and I decided to take a break from live plants.

    Since I no longer need plant lighting, I reduced the hours that the tank light is on, and even made a little grid out of poster paper to filter some of the light out. Hopefully the algae will stay away for a bit.
