Hey Phil.

So I'm almost done selling off all my shrimp and will be converting that tank into an emersed set up. I'll be going with the mistking misting system (the ultimate value one) along with the fogger. My question is do I really need pots? I currently have about 4 inches of new Amazonia/AquaSoil in my shrimp tank so I would just like to plant some crypts in there without doing pots. Is that possible or will I run into some type of issue down the road?

thanks

Pots aren't totally necessary-- they just make it more convenient to remove the plants without disturbing everything else in the tank.

Very nice collection. You may end-up having the Noah's Ark collection, the way Borneo is being developed.

How's the shine green doing for ya?

IME, it hates bright lighting as it really suffered when it was under a 2 baffled 2' T8 tubes. It recovered really nicely after I moved it to a tank with a 15w T8 over it.

Buces will adapt to higher lighting, just like anubia species. You have to be patient with it. It'll take a 6-8 weeks, but they'll come around and grow just fine. I have plenty of shine green in high light. No problemo.

Yup, the shine green is doing great for me so far... Will have to take a photo of it when I get home from vacation.
