Thanks Liam, and your special sauce came in, thanks! For others this stuff is great to put under first before substrate or scape. I swear buy it and have used it in all my tanks during setup!

On other news.... My Sieryu Rock I purchased is not shipped even though they swear it is. Tracking shows no scan or acceptance other than UPSP label being created..... Poor communication by the seller. Takes multiple emails to hear back, and PM's forget about it..... Frustrated as I wanted to start my scapes

Sorry to hear you have been having so much bad luck lately. I do not understand why some people sell stuff if they do not have time to ship for weeks, I once waited like 2 months for a canister filter to come from Wisconsin to Connecticut. I have a whole boat load of stuff to get rid of right now, but I know I do not have the time to properly deal with it having a 2 month old and all. People never cease to amaze me.

Ok more updates got 8lb of Sierra stone clear coated it now doing a test to see if it leaches or the clear comes off submerged.

Also bought a manzanita stump and a couple pieces of manzanita. I have a bunch of moss and anubias petite on the way. Have 2 crypt nurris 2 crypt affins red metallic and a Nurri mutated.

Also picked up 2 finnex canisters for each tank

So instead of using manzanita dot com, as they took forever to get back to me and then they never emailed me when they said they would, so I wilt to the hills of El Dorado county where I have some property and dug up some manzanita stumps. Think I am going to keep a couple for scapes, but I might sells some as I might make a bye weekly trip to dig up 4 or 5 and see if people want them. As they came out really good. Allot of work and then more work to clean them but they look great.

Same problem with that website. I bet the ones you dug up were way better. If you put a lot of work and they look good, people (such as myself) would definitely buy. You should post pix.

How I feel about non-planted aquariums.

Yeah, I'd love to see them. I'd be interested in a nice nano sized stump for sure.

I will shoot some pics tomorrow for sure on the nano stumps I brought back. One is larger though more like a 40B or 30L could be cut to a 20L. But the others are all nano for 12-18" cubes or tanks, I can get some smaller next trip. I just used one to start my hard scape in one of the 12x12.... use it and 3 small sieryu stones I clear coated. It is pretty cloudy right now have a ac20 on it until my PX360 from finnex get in. I will be planting a small Crupt Nurri in it and a crypt affins red metallic as well moss will be attached to the wood when I do my second water change as well as some anubias Peteite.

What'd the clear coat do to your stone's looks?

I'm always considering ways to prevent leeching.

This will be my PBL tank, have a crypt Nurri in it and a crtpy Affinis red metallic, with 4 back ground blyxa japonica . I will be adding fissidens, Anubias Petite and probably some mini xmass moss. Décor is a Manzanita stump I dug up from my property in Greenwood CA, also have some epoxy sealed Sieryu stone it, about 2.3lbs.

I put down Liams special sauce before starting and sprinkled some on the top as well. Filtration will be just a Finnex PX-360. Lighting is a Finnex Fugray. Added some BW mineral rock, will 3 shou balls in it and I think that will be it.


Other one will start a scape tomorrow! As it will have a larger nurri, and a mutated once I meet up with antbug, some blyxa japonica, 6Lb so seiryu stone clear coated and a smaller Manzanita stump, focus I hop to make on the sieryu stone. This I might add some Draw baby tears for a carpet

The seiryu might have gotten a little darker from it that was all.
