Just a few shots from today. I've upped the K, Ca and Mg this week and I might just be imagining things but the blyxa has exploded with growth.
I've got a shot from two weeks ago and one from today of the blyxa, lots of growth in that time.
The BBA is really taking over the crypts . . . I've already pruned them heavily lately, and I am afraid I may remove them completely. Regardless, there is excel in the mail, it should be here by monday if I am lucky! Until then I will just have to keep the c02 high and manually remove it.
BBA loves to grow on the lower portions of the rear glass, down by the substrate in the shade. Lots of GSA down there too. I have a favorite method of removal for these hard to reach patches of BBA. Start a siphon using a small airline tube, into a bucket or whatever you choose. Reach down with the tube in your fingers and gently scrape the BBA away with the end of the tube. It should suck up whatever you scrape off, getting it out of your tank, rather than just suspended in your water column. BBA also grows on various pieces of aquasoil that arent covered with plants, i use the tube to suck these patches up as well.
