hello it's been a while
i took all the blyxa out and put it into my other project. it wasn't getting enough flow and had too much algae but now is recovering well.
most of my previous algae issues are gone. i just raise the lights (duh), kept scrubbing the top of my substrate and plants with a toothbrush daily, cleaned filter weekly during WC and for the most part it's gone.
BUT, my m.p. mats don't look so lush and green anymore. the 2 small ones are ok, but that long one isn't doing too well. any ideas? before anyone says it's because of those moss stick on's, i just put them on tonight to try something out for my new fish coming in shortly.
so my h.c. has been actually been doing better than my other attempts. i see new growth, although slow and it's been slowly creeping.
the thing that's been annoying me are the micro swords. my god, they don't fill and all they do is send runners all around! am i doing something wrong with them?
i'm still not happy with where it's at right now. need to figure out the rest..
p.s. my other project is the 20cm aquatop. nothing fancy just moss and stuff
