Great to see you back and I hope you had a blast.

What else did you bring in other than moss?

I wish I could say I brought a bunch back but my brother wasn't much into getting off the beaten path, we did visit a nice cloud forest at Doi Inthanon but it Is the dry season so everything was a little dry I did get a lot of samples of different mosses from there. I did grab some aquatic moss from Phuket though, I also grabbed some colocasia and alocasia tubers that I'm going to plant, on the good side though I had to change my flight for work and I now have a $800 credit I can only use on a flight to Bangkok and its only good for a yeah so I may plan a collecting trip in the fall..

Well guys I'm going to do some repotting this weekend, while Malaya has done good in my aquarium it hasn't been kind to my emersed crypts, I just bought 3 9l bags of new Amazonia so I will be switching over to that for thins that are struggling in Malaya, I promise I will take pics this weekend

Just read through the whole thread. gotta say, holy cow! I love your setups man! I need a rack like you have for my emersed plants. Right now I only have a large tote with all my Crypts and Anubias in it.

Keep it up!

Are you using purely hydroton as substrate? Or are you layering it over another soil. What about sphagnum? Do you add fertilizer or something?

Do you use the same concentration as tank ferts? I'm curious because I'm tired of having tanks of standing water in my room...it drives up the humidity and leaves a bad smell.....
