No, It isn't on a timer. I try to sit with the fish and enjoy time with them. If I had it on a timer that wouldn't work for me. It is a very good idea though. Ever since the driftwood has been removed it (b.b. algae removal) keeps improving. I add flourish excell at infrequent times to encourage plant growth. Other than that it stays pretty basic. My son has the driftwood in a 15 gal. now and it does great for him. Have a good day.

Thanks for stopping by! You have a beautiful tank!! I wish my tank still looked like the profile pic! The whole thing died durring a week long power outage a couple of years ago. Trying to get it back to its former glory, but it's not easy. Here is a vote for you!

Still love that driftwood! I have several tanks that are heavily planted, but don't use cO2. It depends on the type of plants you get. Bacopa is one I can use without cO2, so that should do well for you. I'll keep watching, and see how this beautiful tank progresses. Oh, and I left another vote too.

No, I don't have a timer on my light. I turn it off when I think it has had enough. It also gets filtered natural light. I really wanted to return the driftwood to my son. He handles driftwood planted tanks better than I do. I consider the perimeters of my tank unique. Its open top, overstocked, overplanted, and overfed. It amazingly works well. I don't mind doing water changes because it then goes to the orchids and vegetables. Its a vicious cycle but I do enjoy it.

Information on my drift wood
I built my root using a glass drill bit to pierce a hole threw a nice flat base rock.
I screwed the two together with a stainless steel screw.

Most of the time at the store, all the cool looking drift wood are in the lizard tank section.

Thank you. You have a very cool piece of driftwood and it is nicely planted. Unfortunately my driftwood heavily contributed to a blackbeard algae spike in my tank. I took them out and it is more manageable after the tannins it produced are gone. Planted tanks are so fun and so much work.

Started to add plants
I added some dwarfed bacopa in the back.
I'll see how they do for a few weeks
The fish started to be very playful swimming threw the weeds.

I have a few different kinds of neon's in it.
My water is cloudy ATM but once I get it to clear up I'll take a few more different pic's
The root I have in there is from the aquarium store. No real idea what kind it is though lol.
I have some white sponge, or moss growing on it, not really sure how to call it. I think that's what's causing my water to cloud.

I had to cut and modify my root a little more then I thought.
Wife was right about it being to big haha.

Thanks for all the votes, and am looking forward to visit all your tank pages.
Thank you all
