Lol alright alright! Soon ladies & gentlemen soon...

Bad news:
My hc on the right island is mysteriously dieing out.. I don't think it'll bounce back until after the fill.. It may well just die off completely.. It was doin great until a few days ago then it just started yellowing and browning.. And ideas guys?



Good news:
Finally got my Apex controller, just waiting for a few more parts and the co2 rig..

When are you going to flood this? I am itching to send them crypts over so they can start growing in your tank.

I've never dry started, nor have I had HC so take this for what it is lol....

If its dead, its dead. It won't be coming back and will only continue to spread. Trim it back to it's healthy growth. Then I'd mix up some water with KNO3 and micros to spray it with and see if that will help improve it. I've seen people here do that before and get great growth.

That's probably what I'd do anyways....

Sorry for the wait Xue, trying to fill up asap.

Rockwood, I think thats what im gonna do.. but im gonna wait it out and observe it to see if it gets better.. I'll give it till monday with close observation.

On a side note.. I was thinking.. if I purchased a marina slim 20 to act as a probe holder for my PH probe and my Temperature Probe... do you guys think it'll be worth it? It might be better for clutter.. and extra filtration wont be bad... Its thin enough to fit in between the wall and the tank... Do you think the temperature in the HOB and the tank would be drastically different?

From the start of this thread to now, I have started 2 tanks. One was started 2 weeks before Christmas and the other just went through a 30 day dry start and I filled it 2 days ago.

Not only does it feel liberating to finally fill it... It looks like a completely different tank because of the depth perception change. The added water also create reflections off the sides (depending on where you look) and transforms it to a completely different tank!

Fill that sucker!
