Well, here's an update photo of my neglected tank. I haven't done a WC nor have I dosed anything in 3 weeks. Oh and my co2 tank has been out for 2 weeks... gotta get this tank back in shape! You can see the Val nanas took a big hit. They're almost all gone.
Can you come to my place and throw some neglect at my tank, I think it could use some neglect, lol

I'm pretty sure my AS is almost depleted at this point lol. This is why this soil is so great... for lazy folks who neglect their tanks every now and then.

lol I'm telling you man, it's the ADA AS! That and the fact that the riparium plants are throwing so much shade that it's kept algae at bay very well even with all the neglect. Try it! :P

Indeed Devin! haha

Sucks because all the flowers are so high up that as soon as they start to blossom, they dry up due to the heat off the bulbs .

You oughta just mow them all down. You can cut that plant all the way back to the last leaf node and it will sprout again no problem. It's real easy to root the cuttings too with the cut end suspended in water.

lol I figured if it would be another SFBAAPS member who'd call me out sooner or later. SCAPE is a cool spot to hang out since there's more folks into shrimp over there than BAAPS. Don't worry bro, I'll never sell out.

I'd have to rip up my tank to use ADA Aqua soil. I don't think I can do that
Up AS is pretty good also - you, my friend, have a green thumb.

I'm planning to mow it all down. I kinda want to grow my crypts out again so I may end up moving them over to my 40B for the meantime. It was an awesome experience with these riparium plants Devin. That I have you to thank for!

That funny my CO2 is out and I have stopped adding ferts for the last 2 months and my crypts, buces and trident are growing like weeds in the tank, I guess no tech might be the new fad.
