back to a simpler layout, h.c , u.g, s. repens and mini fissidens. crappy cell shot for now. I think im gonna add 10 red neons from my 90p to coax the cpd's into coming out more, the tall right side driftwood is actually hollow on the back side and they hide in there about 90% of the time unfortunately.

chopped it up and rubbed it on the wood, dsm for at least 2 weeks. You can always do this with a bucket..put the wood in and saran wrap the top, stick the bucket outside under the sun for a few weeks.

Man.. that's a great idea! I'm going to try that! How fine do you chop it up? Not that blender method is it?

Are you going to let the fissidens completely cover the wood pieces?

How did you glue the fissiden to the wood? This makes me want to try out driftwood again, what the name of the wood?

Are you still using the one Current USA LED+, or did you switch back to T5?

Very nice! Approx how high is your ZooMed fixture above the substrate? Were you satisfied with the growth?

It is also good to know the Geisemann bulbs fit the fixture. I thought the bulbs might be proprietary.
