diwu13 Nice! Did the algae on the rocks die by itself or did you scrape it?

diwu13 Sooo much trouble with dry start lol. I wouldn't be able to wait it out. At least you already got a tank running under that so it's OK

Finally its growing!
And yes I change it back to immersed

diwu13 It'll degrade just because the entire slope isn't covered in HC yet. I don't think it'll matter if the flow is cut back or not

Its flooded. I know I'm scared of erosion... I know the HC roots can hold some substrate but idk lol.

Right now Eheim 2213 is on full flow, if I see any erosion, I will cut back flow about 1/4.

hehe as you can see my journal started while back. This hobby really test your patience to the max.

Well right now I'm going to take out the rocks and boil the rocks to make sure nothing leeching out. So that means going to rescape and back to dry start I guess

Flood!!! Sorry for the crappy image only have itouch on me.

man dangit I totally forgot to boil/ bleach/ vinegar the stone.... I was just too exited and only rinse them in bathtub using cold water LoL.

diwu13 Hm.. the issue with light height will come up again especially when the tank is filled. I'm pretty sure you don't want that costly of a light to be so close to your water line, unless you're planning to not fill the tank up all the way. Could you make a metal tube to support the light from? I've seen that in a lot of threads here, I can look up an image if you're not sure what I'm talking about. Since it's winter I guess it won't matter if the tank is more warm and humid. Probabily good for the plants.

As for the rocks leeching TDS. That's probabily going to happen if you didn't boil or do the bleach treatment. I know it won't matter for the plants but might be an issue when you're planning on introducing livestock. You can lower the TDS with frequent water changes though. That might be your only solution without having to take those rocks out and reclean them.

How large is the tank on bottom? Sounds like lots of stuff in there :]
