DefStatic Dang, wish I knew, I would have taken them off your hands

gnod haha i sold them off. i think i like driftwood better for a normal planted scape.

i personally am a little tired of the iwagumi scape. i will stick to wood for now

DefStatic What happened to your rocks?!?

gnod UPDATE 3.8.13





been running for about 3 weeks now. and while my intention was to create something unique by intergrowing anubias nana and moss, in retrospect i don't think it was a good idea.

not happy with the setup so will be tearing it down and rescaping tomorrow.

i got some bbq lava rocks so i may be experimenting with those also along with the dw.

other than that, i'm finally pressurized co2! so pretty excited about that.

gnod haha actually.... i just restarted my tank few weeks ago. i'll be updating soon!

just ordered my paintball co2 regulator today. eeep!

sumer updates ??
Seems its been an year since you havent updated it

douten update?

gnod quick shot as of this morning.
it's been a little over a month and i don't know, i think it looks just 'ok'..

i think the fact this tank is right next to an AC, it probably affected the humidity level. Not that the AC was on, but i still feel some cold air coming in through the vents. Not enough to adjust the room temperature, but enough to affect the humidity of this tank.

I'm thinking about putting in some plants in the rear corners.. like a red lotus or some crypts i have. My CPDs need a tank with some coverage and this is the only one i have left to do so.. it'll sorta ruin the flow of the setup but I like my CPDs more.

anyone know where i can get some Pseudomugil gertrudae?

gnod BUMP. how long should a dsm typically go for? i'll update with photo tonight but man... seems like ages since i planted the hc.

Ozydego If a turkey baster seems like too much work, start a siphon from a slightly higher source with airline tubing to the corner of the tank, you can regulate the flow all the way down to a trickle if you put a knot in the tubing, similar to drip acclimating fish, you could start the siphon at a fast drip or slow flow, and then leave it for a while to slowly rise, not as much babysitting that way

I'm pretty sure you can do moss emmersed. Just cover the top tightly with a saran wrap like Storm has. Maybe get a spray bottle and spray it every couple days.

Storm Thanks for the tip on flooding - I heard horror stories of half your HC coming up when you flood it. Just to give you an idea of what I mean by die off - this is a pic of my emersed HC growing in the same Finnex 4g tank after 1 month (planted on 12/2/11):



You can see the brown spots where it died off a bit originally. I heard that HC does this whenever you transplant it, but now the green is new healthy emersed growth so I'm sure it will really start to take off now.

hey storm, did you have co2 when you went emmersed? my concern is that because i won't have pressured co2, and only have DIY co2.. it won't be enough.
