Somewhatshocked--Thank you for your appreciation! I mean that! No worries....even the tannins will eventually be changed out!
Devin--You should try using a mix of Tillandia, orchids, and maybe some sort of vines in your set ups!! I think that they would look even better in your tanks! I will send you a list of Tillandsia ID's when I get back home to Nashville on Thursday, ok? I'm with family this weekend in Michigan, and then have some work appointments before heading back home on Thursday. But, I promise to get those to you!
Marko--Thanks bud! You really need to get a large box of Frank's Batch II! It's amazing stuff. I have planted buce's that are spreading quickly because this stuff. Crazy! We'll see how the color gets over time. No reason to think that it'll fade.....I hope!
Bob--I think that I have keyed in on a few species....Devin has helped quite a bit with species suggestions. As soon as I can get the funds, I'll get at least one, if not two species.
Capsaicin--There is a fertilizer that is offered that you use once a month or so. I'll mist with RO for two weeks, mist once with tank water, mist with RO for another two week, then mist with the fertilizer. Repeat. They are not incredibly fast growing, and don't need much.
Gwinner--Yeah, I didn't want to jump the gun until I had them up. I could have told you in the thread, but I don't think that it would have had the same impact. I'm happy that you like them! I affixed them using Tilly Tack, which is a sort of glue/cement for Tillandsia. Works alright....takes a while for it to set up, but it seems to be doing a nice job so far. I don't know that, exactly....I'm currently out of state at a family function and I won't get back until Thursday....they may have all fallen down and are being tossed about in the tank by the current. Pretty sure that isn't happening, but we'll see! LOL!
Thank you, BeachBum!! I hope it continues to do so! Things have to start filling in now.
Tony--One of them is flowering in the picture....it's towards the back...it has pink, purple, and white flowers in a stalk.
Sorry for the delay in responding, all....I'm not in close Internet proximity for the time being....should be again, starting Monday sometime.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend, and thank you all for the comments!!
