Sorry all, I've been busy lately with life but also planning another tank, my new ADA 45-P. I did wind up going with blyxa in the background now. I will post pics up here ASAP, I think you all will love it.
How about some taller hairgrass? I think there is a Giant version.
All this growth is with no co2, just excel? looks very healthy
I finally decided on some blyxa for the background and I love it! Only excel and some really bad DIY co2, I hardly change that mixture at all. I'm eventually thinking of putting on pressurized co2 but I'm also thinking of not doing it. Why mess with something that is working perfect. I think I may just stick with the excel/DIY as I think about it. Maybe even try excel only.
Great looking carpet you got there! You are going
with CRS right?
I only have two amano shrimp in here with some boraras species (I really need to ID them correctly). I want a shrimp species but not sure about which yet. I'm considering CRS but I may not add shrimp until I get this new 45-P project underway.
awesome carpetting on the HC. It's great to see the FugeRay doing so well.
Yeah the HC needs to be trimmed at least once every two weeks if not sooner before it gets too thick and I worry about the underneath not getting enough light. The light is perfect for the tank, I wouldn't use anything else.
Blyxa would look nice behind the hardscape... and it would be taller than the hairgrass
I did end up using Blyxa and it does look great. Pics will be up really soon!
nice tank and HC! I also have went with a FugeRay (16", on a Mini-M) and am DSM-ing HC and glosso. I'm glad I got to see the capabilities of the Fugeray and I hope my tank will get to be as good as yours.
Thanks a bunch for the compliments, I can't wait to show what it looks like now. The fugeray is a really nice light. Enjoy your new tank, I'm sure it will come out great.
Really love this tank! May have completely convinced me to go high tech with one. As I have been on the fence about it.
What are you using for fert dosing? Saw that you mentioned using dry ferts just wondering exactly hoe you did it.
I made some solutions up using dry fertilizers and distilled water. I have a solution for KNO3, KH2PO4, and Plantex CSM+B. I might does them once in a while when I remember, only a couple times a month. With aquasoil, I havent really had to does much for fertilizers. I usually just dose after a water change mainly.
Wow ... Makes me excited about my FugeRay. I too was concerned about growing HC with it. It's encouraging
BTW, I had purchased an Evolve 8 and mine leaked in I think the same spot as yours did. But mine leaked when I was water testing it, so I packed it back up and returned it right away.
Yeah, the fugeray is neat little fixture and for the price, I couldn't beat it.
I will be posting new pics up ASAP guys!
