The tank has been really good. I changed the filter basket and the pump (you can see exactly what I bought earlier in the thread). I would definitely use the tank again.

Added some more copepods (galaxy pods from algae barn - mix of 5 different types). I also regularly dose phytoplankton. I’m convinced they are a reason why my small tanks stay relatively algae free.

Love your pico, I have the 4.1 lifegard - they are great little tanks for sure. Upgraded my pump as well and added a different brand custom media basket as well as a tiny oxydator. I've been considering adding this tank to the lineup recently.
