yeah, but i have to re-tie the riccia, or itll float up. plus the bottom is starting to rot. i actually like it better as a dense mat (about 2 weeks after i tie it is usually best) then as a loose clump.
yeah the e. tennelus is growing well, and sending runners. im hoping to get it really thick.
the HC in the front is growing good. the one in the back and side are growing straight up. my guess is that there is considerably more floaters there, so there is less light there. yesterday, i removed all but 3 plantlets floating and replanted the HC so its on its side. hopefully now it will continue horizontal growth.
well im happy no matter what. this is the first time i got HC to grow submerged.
btw, my 2 uber-red RCS are both berried right now. and the runner-up is too. i have hopes for a couple similar shrimps in a few monthes. then ill weed out the least colored males, and the least colored females (ill try to keep a sex ratio of 1:3 males:females).
switched over to pressurized a year or so ago, run on a pH controller set to 6.6 with a kH of 5. thats approximately 37ppm, but its very inaccurate because there are other buffers in the tank besides carbonic acid and (bi)carbonate.
how are you
that anubias is awesome
great UG growth there
hey, havent seen you (well, your posts) in years.
pretty good, except i recently relapsed into multi-tank-syndrome. lol
thanks, im somewhat conflicted about it. on one hand, its too big. on the other, chopping it up is such a shame, as its magnificent.
i know i swicthed to keeping cichlids as a hobby while maintaining just 1 tank for aquascape
multi tank syndrome relaps lol it happens
i would keep it the way it is, a huge one piece clump
don't tear it apart
the left downoi is amazingly fat too
what's with the bald area of UG there?
it happened to me to with hairgrass
it just seem the plant won't grow there in my case
i guess. honestly i probably couldnt bring myself to cut it.
thats where the food for the shrimp often falls from the feeder, so they root around there and unplanted the UG after the last replant. theres some underground runers now that are finally growing out in that patch, so it should fill in this week.
