No I dont, Should I? There's a film developing on top of the water so maybe I should?

aweeby man if you filled this thing with water, you'd have a tank of mud.

do you have some sort of circulation going in this? I can see where water quality might not be so hot. How short did you clip the submersed stems before planting, btw?

This looks promising. I'm hoping to set up something like this over summer

akdylpickles What do you mean fill it? Like with water?

Da Plant Man Very cool! When are you going to fill it? Or are you going to fill it?

akdylpickles Overall they're growing great, some plants are growing faster than others but it's not like any are slow I can't wait to get the 4bulb t5HO to make the growth explode. All my carpet plants are really starting to fill in, might be selling some in a few weeks

NeonFlux Nice emersed tank setup going. I see you're preparing to grow some of the plants quickly and effortlessly, so you don't need all the equipment prior to getting them later with a fully submerged planted tank? Anyhow, looking good!
