Re: H4N "Planted Tank ROOM"

Updated:

Got another bag of aquasoil in.
Fill the last two 10g on top shelf.
Filled the black and white sand ones.
Met up with Barbgirl and got a 10g from her and I went into PETCO and got another 10g.

I also moved up the very bottom t8 light fixture up. Each shelf will need two of these fixture to light the tank evenly. Since i have the tanks turned the long way.
Good thing there cheap! And I got extra bulbs already.



I don't know what to fill the last two 10g with.
It might be an ugly mix of left over substrate lol!

A picture pictures of my emersed 40b
Started about 1-2 weeks ago.
The glosso is already like 85% filled in! Stuff grows quick emersed!

UG looks like it is growing. I can see small sprouts coming thru.



Another a picture of my first 40b I setup.
Random mess of plants right now.
Once I get the rest of the 40b up I can organize the plants better.





I also have the second 40b up with aquasoil.
But it has major green dust algae since these lights are crazy strong. I just had to raise both more.
Now I say they are about 8-10" above the rim.
Which is about 70-80 par at the substrate.

Before it was about 4-6" above the rim and had 100-110 par at the substrate.

I'm also going take two bulbs out and see if I lower it I can get enough par at the substrate.

If so I can buy 2x bulb light fixtures for the rest of the tanks and save money/electric.

Haha

I also bought a small indoor seeding/growing kit for veggies.

Well that's it for now!

Going try and setup another emersed 40b tonight if time allows haha.
