Hi LondonDragon.

This is my first post on this forum!

I live in London as well (not many of us about on this forum), where did you get your HC from?

I live north of the river and tend to go to Crewes Hill in Middlesex (if you know it), Home Marine, Wildwoods etc. Never seen HC for sale there though.

I'm also trying to get hold of some Blyxa, which seems to be impossibe here!

Ta.

Hi, I purchased my HC in a shop in Great Portland Street, Central London.
It was the only time I saw it there so I grabbed a couple of pots of it.
I was also after some Blyxia lately and also failed to find it in the shops.
You can buy it online, I have purchased stuff from this website before and they do a great service, they have both HC and Blyxia.

Hope this helps, good luck

I'm hoping to plant up my Rio 125 in the next few months, and wondered if you had any problems before adding the external filter?
I ended up removing the internal filter from my other Juwel tank and was hoping I'd be able to save some money on this one !

Have you had any probs adding the additional lighting?

Just a quick update, added some riccia meshes in an attempt to cover some of the gravel since the HC didn't really work out.

Here is another update, removed the first mesh of riccia on the left hand side, thats where the clown loaches enter to the plastic tube underneath the plants so they kept throwing gravel all over the first mesh.
