Oh yeah, one more thing about dirt... It's cheap and good for growing plants. But I find it a pain when moving plants around or rescaping. Too much dirt gets kicked up and ends up on my sand cap.

Kai808- thanks what do u suggest for a nice carpet? I buy my plants from kalihi pets or Petland kahala. Haven't been to aquascapes on a while because when I go seems like there plants don't look healthy. I definitely need to take a look at what the sku read.
Andrewss- thanks I think patience is my enemy here because I feel it's not growing to my criteria.
I think I need some DIRT.

The scape is looking great! I would leave just one light on it for now since you don't seem to be running into any algae issues. Where did you get your plants from?
The only thing I would be concerned about is the "Baby Tears". If that is HM(Hemianthus micranthemoides name subject to debate), you'll have a problem growing it low as a foreground plant. It's a weed and could take over your tank. I suggest keeping it in the front corners of tank(to frame the scape) and also as a background plant. This plant has taught me a great deal about pruning stem plants.

Vnghost- the co2 kit was already cancelled but I liked it because it was nano size and has a nice regulator. All good tho. Already switched out the LEDs for a clip on 25 wt cfl. Do u think I need another clip on for a nice carpet?
Level200- it's nice and I like it. I jut wish it had better stock LEDs but jut like any other tank there will always be mods

I have just got the same tank, how are you finding it?
|01-04-2013 04:33 PM|
If that 88g co2 kit hasn't come in yet cancel it. That kit will end up costing you way more than a co2 regulater. That LED light is not strong at all. I had good luck with wisteria and dwarf sag and other low light plants but growth was very slow

So I got a email notification that my order for my fluval 88 co2 kit was cancelled because supposedly they are out of stock. So I guess I'm going to go with DIY for now. So my plants look more Sturn and have a little growth but not what I would want it to be so I switched out the LEDs and went with a traditional clip on desk lamp with a 25 watt spiral. My tank seems to be going in the right direction but I'm debating to start over and put some top soil under a inch or two of Eco complete. Advice?

|808HI||Yea the driftwood cost me about 5 bucks. Ill post some pics tomorrow. Actually the baby tears are growing fast. Amazingly my Co2 is pretty strong from this batch. Any ideas for scaping? Plus I have some riccia had them growing on the pebbles but there not porous so didn't stay. Any ideas with it|
