No need to wait till WC. Turn off filter/Powerhead etc no water movement and treat bba with H2O2, wait 15-20 minutes and you are good to go.

2in10 If you are worried about stressing your livestock I would pull the wood out and treat it in another tank. You can use Seachem Excel on the BBA then or H2O2 but it will damage your moss.

yellowsno so i did my water change today... added some flame moss to the branches... i think it will look nice when grown in... however i looked VERY closely to the branches to what looks like bba... and sure enough it is ... i dunno what i wanna do to clean it.. its small... but it has that bushy bba look... and i dont know whats cuasing it... i may increase the co2 but im afraid its going to stress out all my preggo shrimps and baby red rams i have running about

... any suggestions welcomed...

meowschwitz Looking good! I'm liking all the grass-like plants. Can't wait until it fills in.

yellowsno and here are the pics... didnt get a chance to trim but the hairgrass is growing in quicker then i thought... and growing pretty tall... same with the blyxa... might have to start trimming... parva is growing tall but not wide so ill wait a bit longer before i decide anything with them...

lost one sakura red (so sad.. she was completely red... even her legs...) but other then that every other female is berried...)

pondering what fish to put... something colorful and schools well... and that doesnt eat shrimps (i already have cardinals... but i want something else...)

yellowsno ill post some pictures tonight as the weekend was buzy and the next few weeks are gonna be buzy... but so far everything is growing in... i may need to move around some parva as its starting to come foward past the foreground... so im going to find some space between the rocks and branches to put it so its away from the front... im loving the grassy overall look to the tank ...

And as for adding something to the branches, it will create contrast between the foreground and the background. I can't wait to see it! I bet you're adding it right now. lol

I'm not doing the moss yet as I'm really pondering the Anubias petite since it will give a more leafy look to the branches... Ohh and the tape was to help me figure out the golden rule of scaping for the tank which was 3:2 initially it was for everything in the middle more towards one side... Instead now everything is on the sides with the space in the center

yellowsno things are starting to fill in ... the blyxa is growing in on the back... i see new runners of the belem in the front and middle... and the parva is climbing out between the wood...

on top of that... my tank is a love shack... i see a bunch of red ramshorn eggs on the glass... as well as preggo sakuras or fire reds or cherries (i kinda threw them all together to mix up the batch then gonna cull)

also started plumbing in co2 at 45 bubbles a miniute or 1 bubble ever 1.3 seconds (i think the math is correct... i just counted the bubbles and had a stop watch and hit stop at 60 seconds)

and started my ei dosing of the tank...

Couesfanatic If you can get away without algae and no co2, i'd keep it the way it is. Is that the Double Bright? Take a few pics of the belem up close. Seems to be growing pretty good for no co2.
