In your thread of this tank, you showed the H Japan had completely taken over. Is it growing in the riccia in the spillway? Or is it growing in SS mesh. Also, has it pretty much killed everything else off by blocking it out?
I think the old ricca & moss in the spoon is pretty dead, just some left in a few places on the edges. The H japan swamped everything else, except that ludwigia - just plain ol ludwigia but it grow tall and fast enough to peek out of the H japan, and it turns a nice red when grown emerged like this.
Mostly everything roots in the top sponge REAL well, and eventually got rooted into the SS mesh as well (the roots come down and through it on the underside, I trim them back)
This is so neat! I have a couple HOB this would work on, I especially want to try it with my Azoo Palm/Mignon 60 ones because I keep them in cubes in prominent spots in my house, like my diningroom table.
So what type of meshing is this that you're using? I've always been leery of using metal in my tanks.
It was a piece of SS mesh with slightly larger than normal holes that (member) h4n on here happened to have on hand. I think he sells similar stuff regularly, and it is real marine Stainless, hasn't showed any sign of corroding like hardware store stuff.
I don;t think the hole size really mattered much either
