Fat Guy selling the plants


-----------
Hi,

I'm selling all of my dhg belem. Making a move across the continent. This belem was originally purchased from Matt F. over at thebarrreport. It's the real deal. This belem is submersed and is coming directly from my mini m pictured below. There's a possibility of pond snails in each section but I will do my best to remove them from the package. a great and very easy plant to grow with co2.

$20 shipping included for a section of it from the below photo.
roughly 3 x 3 section from the aquarium in the pic. It's grown submerged so it's not going to be a clump like you would get when it is grown out of water. but it'll be good amount nonetheless.



all the best, Walter

here's how I am doing it and what you will get more or less:

talontsiawd The Belem looks good but I like the hydropiper mixed in better. Why did you remove it? Belem over took it? Anyway, it's nice looking. I don't think I will ever do any sort of DHG combined with something on a tank I cannot babysit every day. On my last tank, I ended up just yanking up the DHG and replanting some, such a hassle.

Fat Guy pulled the hydropiper. (sadly). but the belem really started to fill in. I noticed that after my last major trim I was having some bga issues. I don't think that I was doing enough water changes or maybe I trimmed too much. everything bounced back however at very different rates. I should maybe have planned my trimming a little more economically. The belem that I trimmed, a lot of it died off then new growth set in. also the bio film on top of the tank became really thick when I went a week without water changes. When I pushed my finger through it, it separated like shards of glass. really wild. anyway, just belem in the tank now. am moving soon so I'm just going to let it grow. I purchased a bubble counter to replace my diy syringe one. that seemed to develop leaks over time. here's what I snagged. it's pretty awesome.


here's the tank in its current state. Almost daily water changes now, using the hose to suck off any bga remnants. manual removal has proven to be way more effective than any h202 treatment. also did a major filter cleaning etc.

just belem, snails and rocks.

So to sum up fixing the problem the way you did would be to take out the magnet and gently replace it into the plastic housing with a final lubrication of everything with Vaseline?
my issue was a little different. I had filter issues because I had initially snapped the ceramic rod that the impeller spins on when I was cleaning the filter. I ended up replacing the impeller unit all together because my old impeller had more of an oval hole that the ceramic rod had created because of my neglect.

I agree with trigger below. sounds like you just have air in yours as well. If you tilt your filter the bubbles should dislodge. make sure all of your connections are secure. You can always check your impeller, but if your filter is only 6 months old, probably best not to mess with it unless the noise coming from it is bothersome.

learned that lesson the hard way. a temporary fix that caused some die off but nothing too major. not the route I will take in the future though. laziness on my part.
