JSmitty hey just wondering does the Co2 injection hurt the shrimp?
Was thinking about doing the same thing but people warned me about Co2 and shrimp, and that they do not mix.

Thanks

Hi Kirk, the scape worked out nicely, but it got a really bad algae/fungal problem and just let it go so it's all overgrown now. I'll take some pics once I've trimmed it all back.

I have a Fluval 306 canister which is plenty of flow on it's own.

Almost identical growth characteristics. Hydrocotyle sp. Tripartita (aka Hydrocotyle sp. Australia) has more pronounced "cuts" in the leaves.. meaning, the leaves are less rounded.

Japan Micro Hairgrass. It grows less than an inch height, and a full lush lawn.

Some Erios, some repens, and several other plants. Still have not flooded

I bought a paintball Co2 setup from JagedFury here at the forums.. can't wait!!

So, I made a diy acrylic custom (long!) spray bar, to give flow to the whole tank. I also am running an extra filter at one end (Zoomed 501)

Here it is.. Sorry about the bad pics.. took on my phone.




And here's the DIY lily pipe I made for it:





I'll take some more good pics soon. About time for an update anyways!

Thanks
