Talking Oct. 12 Update (2nd H20 Change)

Still looking very good! Very little hair algae, but removed during the 2nd water change. Some of the HC's melted and float to the surface but its very little, much less than I expected. My lighting and CO2 must be on track

Still crossing our fingers

Added Blyxa, Star Grass, Downoi, 3(A) Grade & 1(S) Grade CRS

* TDS: 75ppm (before adding Fluval Shrimp Stratum) / 163ppm (after)
* Chlorine: 0
* Ammonia: 0
* Nitrate/Nitrite: 0 / 0
* Temp: 70-78F
* pH: 6-7
* kH: 2 / gH: 6
* Lights on 8 hours per day (9:30AM-11:30AM) (2PM-5PM) & (10PM-12AM)
* CO2 is on 24/7 (1-2 bps)

That's so beautiful! I love simplicity! It's so eye pleasing. Must be comforting to just sit there and just stare!

Beautiful! I just set one of these up myself and can't wait for it to grow out a bit. How are the lights working out for you, are they enough?

Oct. 13 Update (Added Manzanita + Cholla Wood)

Added a small piece of Manzanita & Cholla wood.

I really like this Manzanita piece my bf cut out, hopefully everyone else feels that same way. At least I think its better looking and less space consuming than the old piece.

Will attach moss over the weekend. Most likely Christmas Moss. (I have Fissidens, X-mass, Taiwan, & Flame moss I could also use).

Any comments/suggestions? : )


* TDS: 190ppm (Change dramatically since the addition of the driftwood and the cholla. Weird? )
* Chlorine: 0
* Ammonia: 0
* Nitrate/Nitrite: 0 / 0
* Temp: 70-78F
* pH: 6-7
* kH: 4 / gH: 8 (Change dramatically since the addition of the driftwood and the cholla. Weird? )

I think Fissidens makes the best 'trees'

Thanks for your input. But I don't have enough to cover it initially, so should I just use fissidens at the top and christmas towards to bottom or its best to just use one? : )

My bf and I have discussed about the blue background, but don't know how to do it. Is there light blue cardboard or paper we could glue to a cardboard so we can stick it in the back?
