From one Marko to another...glad to hear it all made it through the power outage!
Looks good in there, great pearling shots...love the 20 long. Have one myself, but lacking CO2 and some HO. Someday.
thank you marko.
thanks, the extreme pearling is cuz my CO2 is really high, and i have a ton of O2. ill have to dial down the CO2 soon, when i get livestock. but i should still be able to maintain a good amount of growth and pearling.
HO? unfamiliar with this abbreviation.
yeah CO2 isnt the easiest thing to get, but since the first time i tried it, i could never go back. maybe set up a nano with DIY CO2? and some r. fluitans (pearls more than any other plant IME).
Sometimes Fate knows what's best, Marko! Nothing like a "forced" two day black-out to help with the algae/diatom issue!
Pretty plants!! Hurry up and grow them out so you can start scaping!
the d. diandra is just about done. after then next topping ill start maintaining it as a bush.
r. colorata is close too, but ill probably move it to where the r. green is now. the r. green, r. colorata, and r. macrandra are just too similar. so ill swap out the r. green eventually. for now ill just stick it in the back left. also have some red cabomba on the way that i will place in the tank. not sure how it will look and whether ill keep it there as part of the scape or just farm it out. for now ill put it where the r. colorata currently is.
