somewhatshocked Haven't updated these threads in a looooong time (ugh, I need to!) but some of my tanks receive CO2 & ferts, some don't.

My shrimp tanks typically don't receive anything at all.

Omar EAZi Nice tanks, I've been going through all your journals, was sitting extra hours at work, everyone thought I was doing some important overtime work lol!!
Do you use co2 in any of your tanks?!

somewhatshocked If you're talking about the Current fixture, you can adjust light levels with the remote control.

Minhha2006 Ive been catching up with this thread. Im thinking of getting a planted+ , but im worried about algae issues. My oto cats keep my walls clean but my rocks are no mans land. Any tips?

somewhatshocked Ugh. Ended up losing this tank during the move. I am super-upset about it!

Now that I've arrived in my new city (need to update my location information), I'm going to pick up a new tank for the critters.

somewhatshocked Woah, it's been a while since I've updated. Everything is going pretty swell with the tank but I'm thinking about making some changes.

Am re-scaping the 12gal long and am toying with moving the Corydoras habrosus in this tank over to the 12. Not sure what that means for this tank but I feel another re-scaping shaping up.

Maybe something with nice rocks or huge chunks of driftwood.

somewhatshocked Ha! Figured it was easier to update most of my journals at the same time.

Bserve Holy Uploading Batman!

somewhatshocked In the interim, here's one of the young Corydoras habrosus growing up:

somewhatshocked Woah! It's been a hot minute since I've updated.

Tank is coming along quite well and I've had to remove some Crypts due to excessive growth. Did a monstrous moss trim a month ago and the Christmass Moss is beginning to thicken back up. Will aim for photos during the next water change.

I've got a new rimless bowfront coming from AquaTop soon and I'm toying with using it to replace this tank, though I do still love it. Am just determining whether or not I want to deal with Cories and an open top.

somewhatshocked Christmas Moss got way too thick so I removed 99% of it and re-glued some on to the hardscape:

Here are the adult Corydoras habrosus remaining in the tank, all huddled in one area as the tank refilled:

Planning on re-scaping with a ton of Anubias nana 'petite' and maybe some Buces.

GreenBliss All tanks have AquaClear filters. 18g has AC70. 3.2g and 7.5g have AC30s. The filters in the 18g and 7.5g are right near the moss.

somewhatshocked Moss needs good flow to flourish.

What's your flow like? What kind of filtration?
07-01-2013 10:11 PM
GreenBliss Damn, I wish my moss looked that great. I can't seem to grow it well. The moss in my 3.2g is starting to turn brown after months of green and it has a led light. It's driving me up the wall. I love moss, but it seems to hate me.

Also love the full look.

Sake Wow your moss growing skills make me want to steal your tanks <.< I think it looks great overgrown, then again I like the jungle look.
