YES
--- mad growing skills right here man

to be specific. they had about a 6 month grow time at low light, and they folded over at the water surface, so a lot of times they were able to absorb co2 from the atmosphere.. i started with 5 small ones and now have 30 total plantlets
about 8 of which are mother plants

You might try the Zoomed Flora sun, they are better/cheaper than the Giesemann IME, redder, will offer more color, a little less par, but perhaps a bit more PUR. the Giesemann aquafloras are nice though and a different color than the red wave or the Flora sun.

Wood was shipped too.

They are white enought to fill in the midday section? Giesemann aren't my first choice for bulbs either, I personally like ge starcoats for the white.. But marinedepot had a good sale, and buying 6 at a time saves moolah

That being said, the mighty plantbrain commented in my journal muwahahahaha
My life is complete!

Awesome on the wood!




I will post a picture tonight of one week of growth, I'm impressed except for the ammonia burn.. I let it get a little too high before a water change. Plants are kinda brown . New growth is still happening though so things will work out, just take more time

Picture of 1 week of growth. some of the reds look a little brown, the blyxa is more brown than it appears in this picture. coloring is due to ammoia burn

overall im impressed with my week's worth of growth considering the complications.. co2 is still being dialed in.
Picture was taken on saturday which would have been 7 days at the time

Can't argue with the success!! Ammonia burn? Aquasoil?

Indeed. It is from the aquasoil.
If uve ever over fertilized terrestrial plants ull see some of them drop lots of leaves and turn yellowy for a while. This is due to too much ammonia. Im assuming this is whats happening because there are no other signs of deficiency. No co2 deficiency as leaves are comming in strong and healthy. Old leaves just look like poop. And, i did let ammonia creep up into the 4.0 ppm range without a water change.. silly me, ive been keeping it around 1.0 but life likes to throw u curveballs sometimes jah?

Its done cycling actually. I thought it was last night but i had done a huge water change the day before. But i verified this morning. Ammonia is zero.. doesnt mean aquasoil is still leaching but the bacterial colony is big enough to handle.

I did move my fish this morning. Ill be adding more next week when things have settled in. I imagine ill still have to worry about ammonia because some of the burned leaves are starting to fall off.

Thanks, im still ramping up lights and co2. All 6 bulbs are still only on for 3 hours but thats about to jump to 4. Picture was also taken after trimming off all the old leaves, blyxa is everywhere.. the picture doesnt show it, but its thhhiiiccckkk
Starogyne repens is done transitioning, its exploding with new shoots

Also my new overflow will be in tomorrow. 1.5 inch drain line. It will save lots of co2 and be ultra quiet if what ive read is true. Ive been doing a lot of research on fluid dynamics, and drain sizing for plumbing..
Instead of forcing air out of my sealed wet/dry section. Pressure will leave through the drain line, and because its a bigger line, it wont suck as much air in, so the end result will be a quiet, safe overflow, that doesnt waste co2, and still brings maximum oxygenation.

Makes since... So what overflow did you go with? Also what size koralia are you using? Does it seem to be the right amount of flow for you.... I'm having to cut back on my flow so much because the overflow isn't able to handle the pump.... I should have just bought the bigger overflow from the beginning
