There's just a strand here and there. I found the best way to remove it is twisting it on a toothbrush. It's not growing on my HC anymore so it doesn't really bother me.

That second link got me wondering. It would be a bit clunky looking though. Maybe a smaller version that doesn't lock.

10lbs. Just enough height for that and a big regulator.

Thanks! I trimmed the tops off and rearranged last week. I'll hopefully have some time this weekend to take and post some pics.

I'm really liking the added support and cover on the stand. I only...

Despite having my tank on one of these shelves for 5 years, a couple posts in your journal got me worrying. Today I finally put a cover on and reinforced my rivet stand. I put a couple extra brackets...

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to move the Amanos tonight just to check that off the list of possible issues. I guess a long drip acclimation should help.

I'm glad there is someone else out...

That site also says the preferred temp is 73.4 and below for RCS. I read there is some relationship between GH and temperature regarding molting frequency and strength of the exoskeleton, right?

You think my water params are off? I haven't seen any of the gaps that others have posted pics of on here. I thought my GH, KH, and TDS are well within the preferred range.

I use a temp controller, a TDS meter w/ digital thermometer, and an infrared thermometer to check temps. Overkill, but at least I know temp isn't an issue. You are right about the dial on most...

Your stand looks great! A removable panel isn't as easy to handle as doors, but it seems like it should maintain accessibility better. It's also easier for those of us with just a few tools.

Looking great Ebi!

I wouldn't get too discouraged about the L. pantanal growth. Everything else in the tank seems to have very healthy growth. If you start to tweak things to get color out of one...

It's some fairly ragged Bolbitis. I've never been able to give up on this plant even though it doesn't grow well with the low nutrient levels and light in this tank. Grows like a weed in my 40g but...
