Great plants in this tank!

Did you grow the 'Rosanervig' like that right in here?

My all time favorite is c. 'rosanervig'. My current favorite is Auriculata 'Betong' but it is not doing that well.

Thanks!

Yep! It took me awhile to find the right strain that will show the vein look in submerged form.

My macro solution that was mixed two weeks ago precipitated due over saturation as discussed in the following thread:

http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...18#post2676418

Lesson learned... don't mixed the macro fert with GH in the same container!

I placed an order for Crypt Flamingo yesterday... Now I'm anxiously waiting for it to come. It will be in a gel culture. So it will be exciting and challenging to try to convert it over. I tried it about one year ago and failed. Hopefully with more experience and time, I will dip my feet into it again! I might have a few specimens extra... if anyone interested, please PM me.

I redid my macro fert last night. As I emptied out the fert container, everything was caked and precipitated. It was a hot mess. Definitely, the solution had reached super saturation. I had a layer of Ca at the bottom and Mg on top of the Ca.

I ordered another peristaltic pump from APT for the GH. Now I have three reservoirs for macro, micro, and GH. Hopefully, this will work better. Last time, I had a macro solution without the GH, it was fine. Nothing precipitated in there.

With the increased in PAR, I'm having some hair algae. I tried to increase my co2 but I don't think I have it dialed in yet. I have been increasing the co2 for the past week or so. I have seen the reduced in the hair algae but some are still growing. I will try to get it dialed in within the next week or so.

I can't wait either... I'm really hoping I can keep one alive this time around.

The recovering process is completed. Most/all of the crypts have recovered enough to rescape. I will be doing it this weekend. Here is my purposed layout. What ya'all think?
