Chyrol You're welcome.

Just because it's a cherry doesn't mean it's not exciting! Must like their home.

bluestems thanks

I know it's just a cherry, but I'm excited. I didn't expect them to mate since the water temp isn't ideal. It hovers in the low 60s.

Chyrol Congratulations!

I wish I could help you decide what fertilizer you should use for your setup. In my emersed tanks, I don't dose any ferts. Instead, I just used a potting soil mix from a greenhouse that has slow release fertilizers in it. It's worked out well so far.
I probably should have gone with regular potting soil with a sand cap. Good luck, and please let me know how the ferts go! So far things are growing well, so I think I'll leave well enough alone for now.

Did you decide on a fert method yet? I'm looking at diluting some ferts to lightly fertilize every time I mist. Not sure yet what is best to use.

Thanks! It's starting to fill in, but I think I'll need stronger lighting if I want the glosso & the reiniki to do better. But, the algae is just starting, so I'm not sure that is the right direction to go.

I recently tried adding a drop each of Green Brightly Step 1 and Brightly K with poor results. The glosso and stems yellowed and drooped, and the reinkii browned a bit. It's just now recovering, so clearly a drop was too much.

Maybe DoAqua's Be Clear is worth a try for the algae, but I still need to research what ferts would be best.

Thank you! I've really been inspired & helped by so many here, I'm glad if my bowl can pay it forward a little.
