Monnierei is more upright growing I believe and yours seems to be creeping which is more an Australis growth. Just my guess!

Cool but not at that price. By the time you get a few you could have bought an apex or reef keeper.

I know I want it now haha.

Looked it up, looks like it will work in medium light w/o co2, but will result in taller growth.

To get nice compact carpeting it needs higher light and co2 it seems.

I do have a Koralia Nano 240 I was thinking about running to do that. I just didn't want too much flow for my fish and have them upset over that.

HOB Overflow Question

So I switched over to a CPR Overflow and wet dry filter system about 2 weeks ago. I have the overflow running with a herbie mod. For all of you who run similar setups, do you get a lot of detritus...

Hey Erty,

I've had not much success with Apisto Cac's. I just have random deaths. They will be fine, then after say 6-12 months just get listless and die within a few days. No signs of injury or...

No, I've never had a siphon break. That's what the aqualifter is for that I use. If that failed and my pump shut off then I'd for sure have a siphon break with the CPR. As long as the aqualifter...

You can do it either way. Just make sure to get a pump strong enough to match with your overflow.

I only have some bio media to see the sump. Then my return pump and my pump for my cerges.

Just an FYI, that bamboo is not fully aquatic and will rot as you have it now. It can grow partially submerged, but not as you have it.

There's zero reason to inject 24/7. It's just wasting gas, plants do not use it at night. The pH swing from co2 is not the same as ph drop from say tannins. The co2 pH drop does not affect fish. ...
