LopezTheHero Your tank actually looks incredible and I think I prefer it this way instead!

That would do it :/

I'm sure you'll be able to revive this to its former glory

No lights I shut them off thinking it would only last a few days. Plus no dosing, or top-offs. When I finally went to my room it was half full. BAH Lol


Oh well if this scape doesn't work out I've been thinking of upgrading to a 40g or something IDK I'd need alot of money but it might be a possibility this summer!

Lil' Swimz$ The tips of the R. Green and R. COlorata grew only a tiny bit with curved, miniturized tips (if they even grew from a stem, I did a trim that the Saturday before I got sick.) and then they also turned black about halfway up the stem. So I trimmed really hard down very far.

All the stems in the HC rotted out so it was half floating and the leaves on it turned brown and mulmy. Also algae mixed in with it so it was basically unusable except a few small chunks that I saved.

I'll be needing some advice once I put upa pic on the future of the scape.

The fixture is 30" but the bulbs are a couple inches shorter.

Well, I got the flu this week. Completely neglected the tank and the plants took a hard it, the HC has died off almost entirely and the stem plants started rotting. I use this as an opportunity to rescape (even though it was a pretty minor rescape) but I'll get pictures tomorrow I'm so tired still. It looks terrible btw.

And what'd you use for substrate?

- Mumford
It's a good light I would say. The only problem is that it's not long enough to get the sides as well. It may be a tocuh to bright but it's probably the bulbs I'm using.

I have kind of an old question, but curious if you had ever added ferts to the spray water during the dry start? If so, do you remember what and how much you added?
Thank you! I did use ferts when I started! I thought it helped ALOT. I used like 1/4 tsp of KNO3 and KH2PO4 for like 3/4 gallon.
