Planted and flooded! Pulled an all nighter to get these suckers planted, flooded, and running. It's been three days, one water change under my belt, and so far so good. Most plants look in good shape and are pearling some, expect for the glosso and the stargrass...sure they'll come around soon.

Going with EI dosing on both tanks, liquid dosing with graduated pipettes, using my own KH2PO4 and KNO3 solutions, and Flourish. Using Equilibrium and Alkaline Buffer to set GH and KH. 'Wood' tank will be shrimp tank- GH 4, KH 2, pH 6.4, temp 74. 'Stone' tank will be cardinal tetra tank- GH 2, KH 2, pH 6.6 (higher due to Ryuoh stone?), temp 75.

Flora in 'wood' tank is supposed to be:
Glosso
Hemianthus Micrathemoides(looks like Micranthemum Umbrosum)
Crypt Wendtii Green
Heteranthera Zosterfolia
Cyperus Helferi
Ludwigia Arcuata (looks like some other kind of Ludwigia?)
Anchor Moss

Flora in 'stone' tank is:
HC
Eleocharis acicularis

Unless it's an emersed form issue, I don't think I was sent the right baby tears. Not as sure about the Ludwigia, but suspicious...thanks aquariumplants.com.

M. Umbrosum?
