hey Brad--

try spreading out your HC more... ideally one root per piece. You'll spread out quicker that way.

Will you be doing a dry start method on these plants until the light arrives (or past the time it arrives)?
nice layout btw, can't wait to see it fill in ^^

Thanks. I hope I can stay patient enough to do around a 2 month dry start.

I have never heard of a nanobox, is it a kit of some sort or something you put together?

Nope. Dave hand makes each unit to your exact specifications.

He is picking up speed in the reefing world, and now starting to do planted tanks.

Sorry, realized that post was mostly reef stuff. I just copy and paste between the 3 forums I post on.

I bought 20 stems of Staurogyne Repens the other week and a few have melted away and some are browning out. Does anyone have any tips on how to keep it healthy? Possible that I over watered?

That light box looks really nifty.

The corals are very cool, and your planted tank is coming along good.
