Barbgirl So I am having a terrible time trying to decide what carpet I want!!!!

Can't choose between glosso or marsilea minuta. I am hopefully getting a box full of nano drift wood from Tom Barr tomorrow. Received my Finnex light today and it's awesome.

I think I will be starting a new thread for each of the tank as things are not anything like I had initially planned and this thread makes my head hurt hahaha I need linear clean thought processes hahaha.

As of right now there is:

Evolve 8 #1 - Paradise fish and bunch of random plants. Had two of the stock lights on it, also injecting DIY yeast CO2

Evolve 4 - PFRs, tons o moss, a crypt and then some more moss and I think a type of rotala maybe. Stock light, no CO2

Evolve 8 #2 - Honey Gourami, 2 rummy nose, 2 cory hasborous (sp?) [adding more next week], 1 amano shrimp and some more random plants. New 10" finnex clip on FugeRay Red or something like that. and DIY yeast CO2


Both the evolves are getting a makeover once I get my hardscape nailed down and what I want to do for carpets.

So just tested pH and gH in the shrimp tank.

pH was 7.4
gH was 4-5

I am thinking of getting tangerine tigers to mix in with the PFRs just as a contrast of color. And it is looking like my parameters are agreeing with me

Ohhh I was going say haha.

Make sense. It should grow thru but might take a while.
You should of use that plastic netting you can get from those bath poof.

Barbgirl I have one more piece of "naked" cholla and I am kind of tempted to attach some fissidens to it. Give my shrimp some more stuff to pick through.

That moss is not growing fast enough! haha

Barbgirl No, those are some crypt I got a while ago when I was just starting out. I think they are wendtii brown or something.

It's actually a sandwich of 2inx2in ss mesh with Riccia in between in, I am seeing if it will grow out of the mesh. It would just make it that much easier to trim haha

Update time:
Added some cholla
NL moss
More flame moss
Xmas moss
Riccia

And what is left of my PFRs. Tank was cycled using media and substrate from a cycled tank

Also picked up the second 8 gallon but am going to be patient, which is killing me, I am going to wait until I find the right driftwood for it. I am looking for twig/branchy so that it can kind of "erupt" out of one of the corners.


Not all the plants in the shrimp tank are staying.

Barbgirl Haha he is very very lucky he's so darn cute! Within the first 72 hours at home he ate my Bose headphones >.>

I actually plan on having three of these Evolve 8s right next to each other on top of the stand that I have now.
