Well i have been busy with the business and new house. Open house was last weekend, and the tank was a big hit.
Everything is growing in nicely. I will definitely be looking for scaping tips with my existing plants, in order to better use the space/hide the equipment.
Without further Adue:
Loving the heavy growth, but the pygmy chain swords are getting quite large! They have hit the glass on all sides, i think i want to keep the middle slear, or maybe try something really low lying that i can keep small, maybe some cryptocoryne parva?
Anyways, current conundrums: 250-300 growing kribensis babies. They are all surviving, the loaches are not eating them like they used to! PLEASE let me know if you have a good way to catch a ton of small (.3 inch) fish lol. Also i will be donating these to anyone who wants them for local pickup in San Diego area.
Trimming/ scaping recommendations for my current pplant specimines and additional plant recommendations? Everything that is in right now is doing exceedingly well. I am cutting off about a foot(!!!!) of cabomba (far left) every two weeks off of each stem. I think i want to keep the pennyort shorter in the future as well.
Drop checkers need some algae cleaning for sure.
Does anyone have recommendation for a high flow outlet for FX5 (3/4' I.D.) that is less visible than the standard inlet?
All of the wood is properly waterlogged, so i am happy with that, rocks have bee removed.
Current additive regime: Modified E.I. dosing:
3x weekly: 1 Tbsp No3, 1/2 Tbsp PO4, 1/4 Tbsp K2SO4
3x weekly: 1/2 Tbsp CSM+B, 20 ml Flourish Iron
weekly: 25% water change
daily feedings: 3-4 HEAVY flake feedings
monthly: Full filter dissasembly/ cleaning/ 2 lg bag purigen recharge.
I hope you enjoy as much as i am, love any input or questions!
