Okay, went shopping.
Got some Blyxa Japonica at Aqua Forest.
I'm still not certain on it's placement, but because I designed this layout with only Glosso, HC, FLC, Java Fern, Anubias, and Christmas Moss in mind, I didn't make space or arrange the rocks for taller plants and had to put it where I could.
So I stuck it in the corner.
When I put it anywhere else, it tends to either overpower the nearby plants or become to much the focal point.
Any comments or suggestions will be appreciated.
I also found a really small diffuser. It's rad. It was $19.00 but it's worth it. It really breaks the CO2 down into itsy-bitsy bubbles.
Remember, that's a
mini Java Fern
next to the diffuser. The leaves full grown are three inches tall.
I also got 10,000K bulbs. The yellow of the 6,700k bulbs was starting to look too washed out for my tastes. The 10,000k tends to bring out more of the greens and blues of the plants.
Does anyone have experience with 10,000k? How'd they work for you? This is the first time I've used them.
The water got a bit cloudy when I was dusting some of my Green Dust Algae, but it's slowly starting to clear.
I've read articles suggesting that by letting the GDA be for four weeks, and it'll clear on it's own. I don't think I'm that patient. I'll just keep cleaning as much as I can without disrupting the plants.
, thanks for the compliment. Give the chopstick a try. (Don't forget the rubber-band!) If not, an airstone would work great.
, thanks! Yeah, it's growing quite well. Better than I'd like sometimes.
