Those are cool but they haven't lasted long for me much. They keep breaking seals on me which waste alot of CO2.

I got 2 planters with 2 different type of palms. I'll have to dig up the names. Got them from hydrophyte a while back.

If you OD too much, the crypts will start melting starting at the petioles. I've been spot dosing most of the time after intense cleanings if algae appears. Got rid of all my staghorn and BBA that way. Cut away all infected leaves because they're already dead. This promotes new growth and soon enough, the plant will regrow new leaves.

What a completely aweful tank... Those rocks and that wood are just horrible... You should pack all of it up and ship it to me asap so I can dispose of it properly.

P.s. Leave the moss on the wood that looks bad too.

Hahaha I'll be sure to call you first when I get tired of this horrible hard scape. Heck, I'll even toss in some high grade shrimp!

It looks good but it still looks naked compared to the old scape, it's going to look really nice with the riparium plants above the water.
