Very nice Hamza. Please let me know how you manage to keep it Algae free. Did you collect the drift wood??
Impressive display. Please give a full tank shot
Buddy, like all tanks, this setup went through its algae phase. And had almost every kind of algae you can imagine.
As the tank matured the algae phased out.
And the credit also goes to oryzias, rainbow shrimps, CAE and a garra(yes garra). They all constantly nibble minor algae formation.
Even I spent som good time patiently manually removing as much algae as I can.
I dint used any chemicals nor any of the renouned algae eaters(like ottos, amano shrimps), you can see the results.

i also had two types of shrimp from the same place in ennore. One burried itself under the sand and the other species roamed around as such. the second species ate all the hair algae in my tank then went for the moss and vals in the tank . But very excellent hair algae eaters i must say. they just shaved the algae off from my tank. Not sure about the species but from postings by various gurus here, i think its a cardina species with big pincers.
