Update: tank has been massacred again!


ANd riccia is officially the biggest pain in the @$$. lol.


WHat it looked like this morning.






WHat it looked like after the riccia p'd me off.



I wished i would have used nylon thread to begin with. Driftwood had to be taken out because the cotton string i had originally used to tie down the riccia was breaking away.


Felt kind of bad throwing so much of it away. But i know that the plants will bounce right back by the end of the month.


What didn't make it back into the tank.



Will update when it fills back in.

Next time you do a massive trimming like that, you should think about keeping the trimmings somewhere and letting the people on the boards know. I would gladly pay shipping for some of those trimmings that you wound up throwing out. Just wrap it in some wet newspaper and put it in a plastic bag and your good to go.

I just tried some glosso, and I wish that I had seen this tread before I had planted it. I planted it in small clumps, and now the small clumps are big clumps. LOL

You are doing a good job Captain Aquascaper. Keep us posted.

nice. next time, I wouldn't trim off so much riccia, but just prune the edges with some scissors. Also, no offense, take out that golden barb you have in there, it doesnt fit at all. I would take out the guppies too, and go with all cardinals.
Anyway, nice work.

You're in my heart, you're in my soul, you'll be my breath should I grow old

LOL, the barb was a present from my cousin. At the time i was having a problem with fuzz algae and I had mentioned some info i had read about rosy barbs. He showed up with that barb a few days later. No worries tho, my friend agreed to take him (for his 125g community tank). The mollies and the guppies were rescues and will make there way into my 29 gal tank.

I'm actually thinking about putting a pair of german blue rams into this tank once the other fish are relocated.


Anthony, I use fishing line to tie it down.

Don't forget that I have dibs on your next trimming session. You should be getting close with the fantastic growth that you have been having.

trimmings

I also hate throwing my extra cuttings away. So I take em to the LFS and they are nice enough to give me algae wafers (for my shrimps). I'll have to take em some giant hygro and some mircanthe..somethin..(sp). I'll post em next time i have extra if anyone wants them.

The only thing about all cardinals, is that everyone does it . . . and I for one have gotten quite bored of that . . .
