Jarek Strzechowski Update: Got an Everglades Pygmy sunfish that has basically paired with the scarlet badis, idk if that's a good or a bad thing... Oh and tha java moss is like BLAAAAARGGH overtaking the driftwood, but the badis, sunfish, and shrimp like hiding in it.

Jarek Strzechowski Ya, I've been considering pulling it, or at least trimming it way back. So the hairgrass all died, I'm not quite sure what I did wrong, maybe not enough light? Anyways, the baby tears that I moved and some floated into the micro chain swords in the back were thriving after all the hairgrass died so I moved back what I could find back into the front. My Micro tears are doing very well but they have a bad habit of growing up instead of carpeting. I'm also likely going to trim off the large old 3 leaves on the anubias to let more energy to the 2 new shoots now that I dug it out, and I'm going to slide it into the driftwood and it should root into there. Exciting!

melanotaenia looks good; you might want to break up the hair grass a little more but otherwise nice layout. I'd lose the sword though; it is just so big in the tank compared to everything else. Perhaps some micro swords to replace would be better?

CPDzeke I think snail. Which petco? By the ford plant?

Jarek Strzechowski Went to Tropiquatics and got excel and got dwarf hair grass from petco. THERE'S NEVER ANY HAIRGASS IN MN! Needless to say I'm excited.



I don't know if these are snail or fish eggs. They're on the top of my filter and I thought it was the goo the hairgrass came planted in, but when I rubbed it with my finger it didnt come off.

No not at all.

Things may decline a little but they won't die

Thanks! Ya I love it it originally came with a hydor mini heater.

I thought Anubias were root feeders? Should I pull it up from the soil? It seems to be doing fine, one of the roots that stayed above the ground latched on to driftwood with several suckers.

I also learned my problem with the baby tears, instead of tacking down the mats, I should have broke them apart and planted a bunch of little pieces individually. I'll probably pick up another mat if they're in stock today and a bottle of excel. I'll do a WC and start dosing!!!

karce87 Just want to chime in about the anubias. Dont bury it...

Jarek Strzechowski Thanks! Happy Easter to you guys too. I'll definitely try and attend the show, but I don't know about entering :/ I'm saving up for an ISTA co2 system that was like $60 at petco. I don't know about Excel, that depends on whether or not I'll invest in the co2. I do love the iwagumi scapes with seiryu, but the plants I currently have and the way they are arranged rooted and growing would just kind of hide the stones. Plus my driftwood already has some really nice java moss growth that has grown all from a 1 inch piece into a sprawl the size of my hand. I may rescape later on. What's wabi kusa?

Ebi Hey,

Just wanted you to know that you are doing a great job! Glad that you enjoy your own form of 'art' in scaping an aquarium! Each style is unique to each individual.

For me, I get a little 'tired' of looking at the same scape.. so, at around 3-4 months, i'll take it down and try a different type of layout.

Amano is very inspiring to many of us, and keep up the great work!

along with the lighting, I would encourage a pressurized CO2 unit. it makes the world of a difference to healthier happy plant and a more balanced eco-system.

keep us posted and take understand that other members just want to help in anyway they can!

happy easter
