ARRIL. 15 .12
Got some lovely new plants to try out in this tank, but I'm not sure how well they will do with excel and medium light.
Added: Pogostemon helferi, pogstemon erectus, mermaid weed and blyxa japonica.
I hear the downoi will melt with excel and needs high light. Can anyone confirm? I'm loving the Blyxa and how it sways slightly with the current. Hoping it will grow so I can move some into my other tanks. The mermaid weed and erectus are a bit shriveled up right now so hopefully they will perk up soon once they are acclimated.
The Stuarogyne is filling out nicely. I'm loving this plant and the marsilea is a slow grower, but adds a unique touch.
Moved in some ember tetras a few months ago and they haven't coloured up as bright as I would like.

|Snowflake311||I have never seen anything eat this stuff. Once it goes away they might keep it under control. I have had this white film get to be 2 inches thick it looked like jelly so yuk. a few weeks later it was gone never to be seen again. So don't worry. I use to scrub the wood with salt that kind of helped. But I know it goes away and dose no harm so I Leave it.|

|atom||Yeah, the tank is over a year, but the wood is new. My amano and cherries don't show any interest in it at all. Too well fed? Maybe I need a nerite snail or something.|

Weird that your shrimp wont eat it, and you say the tank is about a year old? At this point I've no idea since I only see it on driftwood in a newly set up tank, then it dies off and/or shrimp eat it all up.
edit: Oh right, you rescaped the whole thing at the start of the month. That'll teach me not to read properly.

|atom||Is it normal for it to attach itself to the glass and plants too?|
|02-08-2012 04:10 AM|
|Snowflake311||Yes the white slim is totally normal just about all wood will get a little bit of it for the first few days of week. Then its gone. It's just bio slime it hurts no one. I just manually remove it during WC and it soon goes away.|

Added Rotala Rotundifolia and Marimo Balls.
I've had Manzanita before and I know the white slime is normal, but some of this stuff is now on my plants too. I can scrub the wood, but not the plants. Any sugggestions?

The white slimy stuff coming out of the the wood seems to have transferred onto some of my plants and also on the glass? Is this fungus? Bacterial bloom?
My shrimp don't seem to be eating it either.
