ADA 60p 2.0 non CO2




For this display, I decided to try using some stainless steel mesh I had laying around and make a tussuck raft for the moss, Anubias and what not.

The goal is you have a nice circular flow around the entire planted emergent mix.

There are ample caves in the wood for fish, so there's not going to be any left over bamboo.

This is the cleaned tank, I will use the Overflow box or I will try the the Mame and see which I can work with best.



Same wet/dry filter etc.

I'm soaking the wood outside now.

Regards,
Tom Barr

I can trim it down or make shapes etc, including 3D, not just 2 D forms.

How do you grow HC on mesh?

I have 2 overflows sitting there, one is a Japanese Mame all glass overflow.
The other is just an Eshopps Nano prefilter.

Try it.

They grow moss etc on fiber mats, same with HC, you can also grow moss on SS mesh as well and if the moss will grow.........so does HC. Emergent growth does extremely well.
