So I decided to move a few thing around because some of them just weren't growing like I wanted them to, so time to switch it out..I really didn't do too much but it took me a while..I moved some of my crypts, hydrocotyle, and a couple others so I could clean up some and open up the floor of the tank. I am just waiting for the left side to fill in some more. I was unable to really grow Ammania gracilis that well, it grew but just never looked that great so I moved it until I get rid of it (unless it likes the new location more).
Thanks to Hoppi I added a few new sp., Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata 'Cuba' and Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata 'Pantanal'. Both of these seem to be growing for me, Cuba I have no problem with it grows great and is starting to color up. I have only had one stem of Pantanal stunt on me but it recovered when I discovered that my lean NO3 dosing had lead to some plants not looking so great. I might have got some more plants but I can't remember right now..I sold a bunch of stuff and hacked this one up pretty good because it seemed like a jungle.
Anyways here's a few pix..
Full tank shot as of 5.1.2012
Right side, The Hygro araguaia is starting to fill in a little(bottom right)!
Erio's are growing less than desired though I was able to split E. Aussie I:
Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata 'Pantanal with great color and polygonum kawagoeanum (the color is so much more pink than this picture shows!)
Also, here is my Green Oto looking great and he is HUGE and FAT
So, does anyone have any suggestions for my spot algae?? I have increased my PO4 and some of it went away and was eaten, but I still can't kick this stuff...Thanks!
Also starting to really get into the setup of the 75gal tank finally!! Started to build the stand since the one I have for it doesn't look great and was going to need re-enforcement anyway, so I figured why not just build a stand that is custom for my needs. Now on to re-enforcing my floor joist to make sure this will be stable. It just sucks when I only get one day a week to do anything on this, and sometimes don't have time all together. I cannot wait to break this 40 gal down, and plant again (well kinda as it is going to take forever, ha)! This 40 gal tank will turn into my fish tank for larger fish that have been cooped up in a smaller tank since my last 33Gal long tank caught on fire (because of a certain filter..ugh). It will house my 5yr old African Leaf fish in a lightly planted tank.
