I get my 5lb refill for 23 bucks at a welding supply store, takes about 10 mins. It is super super cold and heavy so refilling it once a year is nice.

My 20oz paintball is 5 dollars at a paintball park, not as cold or heavy.

Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides,

You can have a lot of them with smaller leaf size depending on light. If you do have Co2 and high light, these things grow like crazy.

I got things growing again, I had to stir the substrate. Someone mention to me about the roots or plants being clog and not able to take up nutrient from the compact dirty waste. I deep VAC and now it growing again like before.


I also added a HC Cuba tree glue to wood, I'm trying to find the best way to have it exposed to light. It's either one side grows and the other side cut or I just leave the other side to yellow and die. Probably just going to cut it though.

I think I'm going to dismantle this tank, the scuds are getting out of hand. I limit the food and they just turn to the plants, my moss is being eaten constantly. I'm almost positive they are eating the HC Cuba roots / lower part as well.

Going to put the Flourite Black in hot water, leave out to dry, hot water again and then just leave it out. Then it's either Fluval Shrimp substrate or ADA AS2. The 60P is about 2 weeks ago if everything goes well *finger cross.

^ I just got my 60P today, hahah guess we both like the number 6.

HC Cuba loves light and Co2, I add excel too. Sometimes when you don't trim as much, the growth is really fast and it uproots. I think you have ADA soil, so I'm sure you got some of the nutrients needed. I do a leaner version of EI, I dose lots of Iron and K and not too much N.

Give it more time, mine looked weak until a few months in. Flourite Black! Love it.

My new tank!

I can tell you that the DHG is going to make a bee line to your HC mat and really make your life difficult.

Matheson 3122 regulator
2 - Parker H3 metering valve
1 - SMC VDW series
2 - DICI Bubble counters

I'm trying to find a stand for my ADA 60P, kind of over looked that part. That very, very important part. *facepalm

Maybe some DIY Ikea table would work, I'm thinking it's 200 ish lbs total so I need something heavy duty.

^ That looks hard and by that I mean, I don't trust my building skills to hold up an ADA 60 P with lights.

Was thinking maybe this bad boy


Width: 61 cm
Depth: 50 cm
Height: 75 cm

Pretty close.
