xenxes Adding 5x "BKK" today, these are really shadow Pandas, but only 1/5 is very blue.



(yellows/24k are going in another tank)

xenxes 1 week caddie growth before/after:



(the l. glandulosa in back is new, everything else went emergent)

Crazy how fast aquatic plants grow when carbon's not limited

xenxes Not the highest quality, but she's a beaut, like little snowflakes in her shell

xenxes Caddie growth



F2 TiBee showing SSS recessive white, tiger undercarriage (dominant) in front


Feeding

xenxes Lost a Tibee overnight (jumper), my glass cabinet is right by the tank, so it slamming closed spooks the shrimp (at least the new ones).

Riparium caddie beginning to establish


Some growth


Thinking of using some HM for the front, the HC all got picked away

xenxes Shrimpments!


10x TiBees! (BKK x SuperTiger)


Throwing in 2x Royal Blue OEBTs and a high PH hardy CRS in (from my 90g shrimpments)


OEBT (Royal Blue, almost black)


TiBee var 1, mostly white carried through


TiBee var 2, you can clearly see the tiger base


TiBee var 3, perhaps lowest grade in terms of color but my favorite, rings!

Topped off with rain water, TDS 52, cranked up temperature from 68 to 72, hoping to get some breeding activity.

xenxes One day growth update (lol not much difference), but water is crystal clear tonight with a golden brown hue so I took a few shots.

xenxes Adding a riparium box (shower caddie) to the back.

Growth in this tank appears to be much slower than the 90g, new tannins from alder cones. Removed the grassy erios. HC keeps getting dug up on the front, going to try something else.


Mischlings settling down and eating

Gnarly mess, threw in a mopani piece in the front and cholla wood in the back, now home to 15 surviving CBS

0/0/0, TDS 68, KH 0, pH 6.2

Have you got any thoughts?
The prefilter sponge is probably full of debris. Take it out and squeeze it a few times in old tank water.

Added some star grass to the back and pieces of moss, mostly fissidens. Water hyacinth is growing out of control as usual in a matter of days, but a necessary evil to keep the algae in check for now.

xenxes The type from Home Depot (Mosser Lee) or Lowes


Growth update, I'm using 2x LEDs so keeping the hyacinth in until I cover every square inch of this little tank, vertical tanks are harder to plant. Contemplating doing a wall of anubias or moss again.

Turboman I like the tea color water. Love the sphagum moss. I might try that for my black water aquarium. What brand of sphagnum moss are you using?
