Well, I cut a background to size out of black acrylic. I'm glad I got the acrylic free because it took a few tries to get it to break correctly after I scored it with a razor. I like it better, but it has a slight mirror effect that I'm not fond of. It hid the spraybar, but now the blue intake sticks out like a sore thumb! What do you guys think?
I think I'm going to rescape at my next water change. I really need some new plants. I want to get rid of the needle leaf and the java fern. I'll see what I can come up with. Anyone have any plant suggestions for something easy? I really like crypts so far, so maybe I'll try some more of those to replace the needle leaf and java fern.
On another note, does anyone know how to get rid of snails? I think they are eating holes in my leaves, but maybe I'm just in denial about plant deficiency. I'm still dosing EI on this tank, and Co2 is high enough for sure. There are no fish so I keep it in the yellow. Which brings me to another point... I need some fish!!!!
I think I have a record here on TPT.... no rescapes or fish added for 6 months. I'm so lame! Well, it's also been 6 months with no algae or dead plants
so that's good. Hope you guys like it.
