IWANNAGOFAST Alan, the tank came down a long time ago. I have another journal up for the tank that took it's place - search meteor crash.

Green_Flash That does look excellent as well. Is that hornwood?

IWANNAGOFAST Tore down the volcano and did a new set up. Things are just starting to grow in, going for a less stylized scape this time, something simple.

IWANNAGOFAST It's not going to look exactly like that but Tom Barr sent me some manzanita pieces that should fit nicely. They're soaking in a plastic tub right now so that they'll sink when it's time to set up.

manzpants92 That would be a wicked piece of driftwood if you have it. So far it looks pretty interesting and judging by your previous scape it should be awesome

IWANNAGOFAST so this tank is about to be torn down. No idea but all the plants are just not doing well, algae everywhere, shrimps die super quick, barely any growth.

I'm soaking some wood right now and should be ready to tear this tank down and re set up in a week or so.

here's the planned scape, will allow me to keep lots of different types of fish, vs just 1 species (I like keeping fish, 1 species in a tank is too boring for me)

IWANNAGOFAST I know, super bummed. I'm hoping someone, somewhere will have more some day, it was awesome, great plant with super long roots so it'll be hard to get uprooted unlike HC.

puopg Yo dude, Remember about 1.5 months ago i Pm'd you about my diatoms issues? I told you that i had browning around edges of leaves etc... My rotala's were melting / not growing and they are fast growers and my pogo. erectus just began rotting, pretty much terrible. I swore it wasn't diatoms since i could not wipe the brown [censored][censored][censored][censored] off. Well im not sure if this is what you are experiencing but a blackout really saved me. I struggled for 2 months getting it to go away but it refused. 1 blackout later, all my plants have recovered. i replaced the pogo since it was just hurt too badly, and my wisteria that i had in a bucket helped Solo the algae while the plants recovered. Today, things are still growning nicely, but i still think the rotalas could grow even faster. Not really sure if i am expecting too much to get like 5 inches in a week. Might want to try the blackout before you ditch the tank.

Green_Flash Don't worry, I am sure it will be done even better than before

wrangler Man that's a bummer!
Can't wait to see the reincarnation........

IWANNAGOFAST augh, I don't know what the heck is going on but this tank has really went to crap. I have a slight dusting of brown algae over most of the plants, all the hydropiper died, the HC on the rocks died, the stems aren't growing very quickly...

Might just tear it down and redo the whole thing with a new scape
