Not much to report. I am currently battling some issues that I am trying to resolve. . Stem plant growth is abysmally slow. I have never seen stems grow so slowly.
I am pumping a ludicrous amount of CO2 and light into this tank and yet the stems are barely growing. In the past I have used this level of lighting and CO2 and a trimmed bush of rotalas would grow from a fresh cut, 10 inches to the surface in a week and a half. Now I have trimmed and its been a three weeks and I have approximately 1 inch of mediocre growth. Stunting is rampant.
I moved a few plants to my other tank 4 days ago and they have already grown 2 inches and color has perked up. Tank is lit by 150W ADA MH bulb.
I am starting to think the Fishneedit bulbs that come with the fixture are the problem. Everything I have ever read has said that light is light and plants don't care, but I am very suspicious.
I loved your 2nd scape, the 3rd was really cool too, the first wasn't bad either
I saw one these recently in person recently and I was very impressed. I can easily tell the difference in quality between ADA and Mr. Aqua on nanos, not that Mr. Aqua look bad but on the bigger tanks, all the little things are far less noticeable.
