5 days if growth without FERTS

So, went on a little vacation to Vegas to drum for the basketball team. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get anyone to dose my ferts while I was gone.

Here's just a tiny update of 5 days of growth.

Will be doing a trim sometime today and most likely getting rid of the vietnam and pantanal.

Why might I ask you no longer want the vietnam and pantanal ?

I just feel like I should keep that back right background more simple.
I think having just the lud. tornado in its place will look more clean.

03/18/14 - WC, trim, rearrangement of plant species

Moved the Blood Vomit in place of the Elatine Hydropiper section.
Swapped the BV row with Downoi.
Got rid of lud. pantanal & rotala vietnam and continued the row of lud. tornado



Did a water change after trimming everything down and re-planting.


Small update with a few pics:

Looking mighty fine, Mike! I'd be super proud to have that in my house.

I've never regretted over engineering a system, but often regretted under engineering one.

DIY Hanging Kit

Alright...

Can't get that money shot without having the bulbs reflect into the picture...
So, me and my close buddy Dave (DaveFish), owner of ADU on youtube, put this together in 3 hours... Well, I assisted, Dave did all the hard work. :p


From where bulbs are to where the soil touch is exactly 20". Still need to get new batteries for Hoppy's PAR meter to get an aprx reading.

anyways, spent $45.39, +gas on going back and forth, 3 times, to Lowes for missing parts. :p

Love the tank. Looks super nice and clean. What is the plant behind the wood on the left with the feathered edges?

thanks! I really like hanging it above the tank compared to being on the legs.


That is Proserpinaca palustris (Marsh Mermaidweed), native to Florida.

Really enjoy the textures it brings, and not so branchy growth. A fairly slow grower compared to other stems i've used before.

Ok Mike, i just watched the interview and i gotta admit that your tanks look so much more better in the video. And yes definately a youtube channel sharing your experience and knowledge. I will be the first subcriber, mine is Nam Nguyen commented on the most recent video that Dave just uploaded.
