I agree with ya about this lol and $5.00 got roughly a regular siz measuring cup full, thats it... Anyones best bet is to just get Fluval Stratium Substrate, looks almost excatly the same and costs wayyyyyy less then this sruff...

I have noticed that there are some leaves on the Dwarf Sag that are going "clear"
I thought that dwarf sag was a lowish light plant???
The NPK+M did arrive and I have started dosing 0.5ml of each bottle, I hope that this allows things to bounch back quickly. Also, what happens when dosing EI methoed when you have low/med lighting, can this cause alega blooms ect? I do want to grab one Ghost shrimp as to eat excess alega but not sure if that would work....

so whats in the bowl is about how much you bought or was there any left over?
at that price stratum might be about the same price...

No nothing left over.. I believe that the fluval stuff around here is something like $20ish for 9Liters or something like that....

Unlucky... Sorry to see that! It could have been worse though, the bottom could've split open on you. Do you have a back up jar? What's your plan going forward with this?

Thanks Disher

[censored][censored][censored][censored] happens right lol I do have a 7x7x8" vase here excatly the same just 1" thiner, everything got tossed into the backup vase and its still clearing up some, soil is a pain when mixed in with sand and pebbles. Now it looks like a jungle in there. I plan to keep this going untill plants look like they need help or something. Maybe I can grab from fluval substrate and use that... who knows. I will just keep an eye.on things.
Photos when vase clears.

I read it's best to leave the molt in so they can eat it.

I recently started a shrimp jar myself and it has some plants in it as well. I keep it on the bathroom vanity so it only gets light when the bathroom light is on (interior room) but I noticed some film on the top. Do you experience anything like this and if you do what do you recommend to prevent it?

Thanks.
