|Vermino||definitely want to see an update on this guy|

|Bercey||Any update to these tanks?|
|10-30-2012 12:46 PM|
they are, however, one of the only things that survived last summer's cross country move, and are great for surviving and cycling new tanks, so hence...

|andrewss||what kind of endler/guppies did you get?|
|10-30-2012 02:44 AM|
changed the soeishi and suteishi (3rd and 4th rock):
I really like this tank now... except the slopes eroded a bit, and now there's too much substrate in the front. I need to scoop some out without disturbing the HC on top. Any techniques anyone knows?
I had to cannibalize the other tank to get the best rocks. Unfortunately, it really messed up the layout I had for it. I'm not even certain which side this tank belongs on anymore... back to the drawing board for it.

|sayurasem||Almost time to flood my tank too! Our tank looks similar lol.|

|Kai808||Congrats on the flood! The pics look fine to me.|

one tank flooded, one tank dry.
It finally begins!
I'm still trying to figure out how to photograph in this light, since the light keeps washing everything out.
|10-23-2012 07:19 PM|
Yeah, it sounds like too much light on both tanks. Direct sun light is very, very strong. You could lesson the light on one tank and flood the other.

|andrewss||lookin good, GL with the flood(s)|

almost one month update
Ok, so here's the update:
Overall, my DHG is doing great emersed. However, the HC is not spreading very much.
Tank 02, bottom tank in previous post, sunshine only:
I stuck this in our bedroom window, and have more or less forgot about it. As you can see, that neglect might have been too extreme, as they might have dried out too much.
Interestingly, the HC is doing better behind that rock in the shade. This window gets around 2 hours a day in direct sunlight, so I don't think it's getting too much light, but perhaps it would be better if I took it out of the window and shifted it a foot away. Also, there was a bit of a heat wave (for oakland) which actually brought temps above 85. So that might have played into the frying as well.
Tank 01, top tank in previous post, 5hrs a day with Fugeray 36:
I've placed the lamp on the rim, so according to Finnex's numbers it's getting somewhere between 100-70 par (I think, am I reading their chart correctly?). I'm noticing that the HC is doing MUCH better on the low parts of the tank, than the high parts, so maybe I need to raise the light. Perhaps the low parts are doing better since they have more water.
Again, the HC is doing much better in the shade, check out the growth in the underside on the rock in the left of the Up close shot.
Hmm... What do you all recommend? Perhaps it's just time to fill?

|sayurasem||Oh man! I didn't know they have fugeray 36". I got the ray2 version. The par is super high!|
|09-26-2012 04:46 AM|
Update: I got a fugeray 36! Only bought one on the presale, cuz I dunno. It arrived yesterday, and I'm going to turn it on for 6 hours a day on one tank, and leave the other one going only on daylight, and see what the difference is...
...very tempted to flood one tank, now.
|09-23-2012 09:38 PM|
1 month since rescape...
So... Let's see. It's hard to tell if any progress has been made at all since last month. The DHG is noticeably doing well, but the HC... hmm hard to say. I didn't take any views from above last time, so i guess here they are, and see you all in a month...
^ The dog isn't impressed with the growth either, apparently.
