Thanks! Happy Easter to you guys too. I'll definitely try and attend the show, but I don't know about entering :/ I'm saving up for an ISTA co2 system that was like $60 at petco. I don't know about Excel, that depends on whether or not I'll invest in the co2. I do love the iwagumi scapes with seiryu, but the plants I currently have and the way they are arranged rooted and growing would just kind of hide the stones. Plus my driftwood already has some really nice java moss growth that has grown all from a 1 inch piece into a sprawl the size of my hand. I may rescape later on. What's wabi kusa?

Default Cord holder

This is a little late and kind of off topic, but I love your suction cup cord holder! It's so tiny and holds 3 cords and looks like it would keep everything looking clean and organized I want one!

Thanks! Ya I love it it originally came with a hydor mini heater.

I thought Anubias were root feeders? Should I pull it up from the soil? It seems to be doing fine, one of the roots that stayed above the ground latched on to driftwood with several suckers.

I also learned my problem with the baby tears, instead of tacking down the mats, I should have broke them apart and planted a bunch of little pieces individually. I'll probably pick up another mat if they're in stock today and a bottle of excel. I'll do a WC and start dosing!!!

As long as the rhizome is above the substrate, it shouldn't matter with the anubias. The roots themselves won't be hurt by being buried.

I was wondering why no new leaves were growing :P ill get right on that. Also, is excel dosing like zeovit in the fact that if you stop dosing everything dies?

No not at all.

Things may decline a little but they won't die

Went to Tropiquatics and got excel and got dwarf hair grass from petco. THERE'S NEVER ANY HAIRGASS IN MN! Needless to say I'm excited.



I don't know if these are snail or fish eggs. They're on the top of my filter and I thought it was the goo the hairgrass came planted in, but when I rubbed it with my finger it didnt come off.

looks good; you might want to break up the hair grass a little more but otherwise nice layout. I'd lose the sword though; it is just so big in the tank compared to everything else. Perhaps some micro swords to replace would be better?

Ya, I've been considering pulling it, or at least trimming it way back. So the hairgrass all died, I'm not quite sure what I did wrong, maybe not enough light? Anyways, the baby tears that I moved and some floated into the micro chain swords in the back were thriving after all the hairgrass died so I moved back what I could find back into the front. My Micro tears are doing very well but they have a bad habit of growing up instead of carpeting. I'm also likely going to trim off the large old 3 leaves on the anubias to let more energy to the 2 new shoots now that I dug it out, and I'm going to slide it into the driftwood and it should root into there. Exciting!

Update: Got an Everglades Pygmy sunfish that has basically paired with the scarlet badis, idk if that's a good or a bad thing... Oh and tha java moss is like BLAAAAARGGH overtaking the driftwood, but the badis, sunfish, and shrimp like hiding in it.
