Looks really nice. Got some nice depth.
Thanks! It's harder to show (or give illusion) of depth - hopefully I do well on this part when the tanks grows in.
It is a really high tech planted tank right here...
Nice scape, do you plan to put more other plants in?
I have a question too, how do you plant fissident on the rock? Sr i'm still a newbie.
I've reduced my lighting compared to what I used to run before. I'm only using 2 bulbs of my 4x54W T5HO fixture, so around 70umol at the substrate - much slower growth and nutrient demand than the 110+ umol at the substrate on my previous scape :lol:
I superglue gel'd the fissidens to the rocks. I lowered the water level enough to expose the 0.5" of the lowest rocks. Then I dried the rocks as much as I can with paper towels, applied superglue gel on the rocks and placed fissidens on it. I left the it to "cure" for however much it can for 10 minutes, then I filled the tank right back.
Cyanoacrylate on superglue gel is supposed to be aquarium safe, you'd find it commonly used by reef folks.
As for other plants, I should be set with the four that I have. I *change* the fissidens to weeping moss later on, whenever I can get my hands on some haha!
Remind me of the difference between "belem" and regular dhg?
The 'belem' variant is much shorter, probably less than an inch in height. The regular DHG I got mixed it grew around 3" tall.
man that hydropiper is gonna look good!
Thanks, and it better!
I actually grew hydropiper on the right hill well, but they all decided to die when I had a CO2 mishap. Hopefully I stop making these mistakes as this plant has been unforgiving to me
