Thanks for the info. It was too good to be true. I will pull it out before I flood the tank (whenever that will be?!?!?!). I am still puzzled about where it could have come from.

Plant ID - Unknown fern growing in DSM tank.

This fern started to grow in my DSM tank. Does anyone have an idea if it is an aquatic fern? I think it is terrestrial, but I'm hoping that I am wrong.

Thanks.

Yeah ... it was from China. Fortunately it was only $30. I guess you get what you pay for. I probably can use the power supply for something one day (I hope). As for the dimming, I wasn't using...

Well, the other power supply finally showed up. I installed the new power supply and that showed that instead of the Meanwell driver having failed, it was one of the LEDs that failed. The Meanwell...

That is what I like about wood charcoal. I'm still soaking them now. I did notice that one of the four pieces is still buoyant, but I'm hoping that it will get water logged more. The other three...

I know what you mean. In the last day, I remembered that I have an extra canister filter I can use until the overflow box and the sump are worked out. And making the sump probably won't be so hard...

Thanks for the kind words. :) Actually, I'm anxious to flood it too so that I can see how the plants and mosses grow in water. It will be a whole new challenge.

I have several pieces soaking now in a pot after having been boiled. It appears that they are sinking now, but I have to check to see how buoyant they are.

Aquascaping with Wood Charcoal

I bought some wood charcoal from Smart & Final to see how they might work as hardscape items. The pieces in the bag range from fist size to larger.

Has anyone used them for their aquascaping...

Here is a wide shot of the tank. I didn't bother wiping down the condensation, but I sort of like the misty look. In case anyone asks, the red oxalis is on a table next to the tank. It's been doing...

I know what you mean. When I turn off my lights at night (still not on a timer), the LEDs flash once. It doesn't bother me, but it is odd. I guess it may not do that with a dimmer. :(

I have some C. parva and they look good. Apparently they are slow growing, so I guess I have to wait a while before they fill in.

One of my Meanwell ELN-60-27P failed. I think it overheated. It looks like there is a small amount of current running to the LEDs, but the driver is fried. I ordered another power supplly (200w,...
