Where did you get your light? It would be amazing to share between my tanks so I can spotlight my trouble plants.... Also DIY CO2 works wonders on small tanks!

Here is my first update! It is February 13th and i just did a water change. Ive had lots of death so far. The plants i got died in the mail because i did not know it was delivered, but most of them are doing pretty good. I hope they will bounce back and start growing better. The HC was all melted and gone i had to take it out today, i gave it a chance but oh well. I put some weeping moss there instead, it looks ok i think. The Blyxa is sending out mad roots but its still kinda yellowish compared to everyone elses on the forums. The fern plant behind the right rock died too, so i added some wisteria from my other tank, and some mayaca springs. Anyhow, thats my update. Hopefully i can get CO2 going soon, i just have no time to do anything thats why i have waited 2 weeks to update this school is just killing my soul.







input please!

hey looking good! my hc started melting also but it looks as though its bouncing back. Although im not getting much spread on it. I may have planted them too far apart sadly. This is looking great. The yellowish blyxa may be lacking something. I cant remember too well. I think its iron if im not mistaken.

Indeed I will. May do it today. Not much growth from the HC which is leading me to disassemble the tank and derim the top atleast and start over but dry start the hc.

i just recently got the same light, just go to the lightning section usually where they sell lamps/chandeliers. Best deal in my opinion for the $ only 20$! It's awesome for my 10g l highly recommend it. you did good in choosing these lamps alex. gl on the tank man if you ever need help just shoot me a private message i'll try to answer it to the best of my abilities.

Thanks man, ill keep that in mind, i was having a terrible time with brown and green spot algae last week, but i raised the light up a bunch and am doing a "siesta" during the photoperiod and i have not gotten any new algae what so ever. Its looking pretty good, this was really just a test tank, never really had any experiance with planted tanks, so ill end up redoing it eventually, but ya.

I am going to update this weekend, along with a new journal for a RCS 10 gallon : )
