Pfertz is shutting down as well.

Any suggestions on how to lower its height? Without squared-off leaves, that is?

Dang, really? Guess I'll cross that bridge when I get there and figure it out then.

Just mix your own solutions. Dirt cheap and easy to do. Startup cost is very low as well. Can easily reuse your old RM fert bottles and just add whatever you need to your arsenal. Best idea would be to make a custom macros mix tailored to your source water and plant uptake but also have some normal stuff like K and P do spot dose as needed while getting your numbers exactly right. Micros too, of course and you can go rich or lean in iron based on what you want out of the tank.

blyxa is a stem plant. cut its stem, low down.
when it starts to get new growth points, then cut some of the longer leaves back.

dude, mixing your own fertz is easy. i do it and it works great. much cheaper too.
did it in september last time and i still have over half of my micros and a little more of my macros left.

Tank & Photos look great! How is the DIY PB CO2? Can you get the BPS count pretty low?

Nothing for 2 Weeks? Was the tank taken down or something?

Thanks, it's at about 1 BPS right now, that's about as low as I've ever gotten it.

No, but it's not looking that hot. Will post pics maybe this weekend.

As you wish, Zeke. But you'll have to deal with iPhone pics, sorry!


FTS


Rotala colorata behaving itself


Badly overgrown HC


Interestingly deformed Downoi

I know it's been neglected. The Blyxa looks horrible. The tank on a 1-10 scale, in my opinion, sits at a solid six right now. I'll get it back to ten soon when some more time heads my way

time for a replant. particularly for the rotala. let it grow up to the surface, uproot, and replant the tips. the bottoms can only last so long... i tend to redo each of my stem bushes every 1-2 months.
