Here's some more picks. Tank was dirted on Saturday. Water is just now starting to get cloudy. Not bad for freshly dirted tank. I didn't mineralize per se. But I did soak and drain the dirt a few times and left it out to dry one day. Plants are melting a bit but I chalk that up to being freshly submersed in new conditions. Water change is planned for the weekend. Enjoy.
Side note: I ordered some black 2mm fine gravel from substratesource.com. I want to lay a very thin layer over the hairgrass to keep in place a little better. Some of it floated up a few times. Taking a risk with the hairgrass with no co2 and ferts. But I've seen pics of it growing well in Eco complete with nothing else. What do you guys think?
