Here is what I pulled out that I wanted to replant.

My Hc cuba doesn't seem to want to root anymore, I haven't done anything differently. Maybe too much mulm ?

I do not know what it is about the Edge 6gal, but I love it. And you have done it quite the justice. There is something about it that seems bigger than most 6 gal tanks. If it was not for the poor lighting, this would be an even more amazing tank. Which looks like either you upgraded or they have fixed LOL

Curious, why is trimming such a problem? Is it the plant itself or the tank?

please tell us more about your CO2 regulator/solenoid/needlevalve/bubble counter set up. Where did you buy it?

I have an idea! Just leave the HC floating and let it grow. I think because of the enclosed style of the edge, the humidity will keep the leaves moist.

Yeah, I was thinking of that. All the plants grow better in the water column for me. I was thinking of HC Cuba clouds, no idea how to keep them together though.

Defstatic -

I actually think it's the scuds that eatting and uprooting the plants. They are mostly underground. When I reduced my feeding, they either fest on the underside of the Cuba or just did it to get even with me. I'm thinking of breaking down the tank to get rid of them.

Aether -

Here the list,
Aquatic Life Co2 - 149.99 online
CGA 320 Adapter - 10 online
20 oz JT Paintball tank - 40 online (most expensive because of the level indicator)

I'm building a custom regulator for my ADA 60 P which hopefully comes in soon.






The regulator recently passed both Stage tests, I'm waiting on a solenoid.

How're you liking the paintball tank vs a normal CO2 tank?

Hey Mumford,

The ability to raise the working pressure is pretty neat, beside that fact, I think they're pretty much the same. End of tank dump ever happen to me because I just refill when the tank feels light. I don't discourage anyone from making their own custom regulator, in fact, I think it's extremely rewarding. You gain a lot of knowledge during the process. It's almost like building a computer, once done, you have the knowledge to keep going.

Seachem Flourite Black.

I think solve the rooting problem, I'm getting some nice results now, same as before. I deep vac the top layer and got out a lot of mum and dead roots. I think it was too dirty so the HC Cuba was trying to grow in the water column.

The roots were fine, it was just the lower part that was in the substrate that die off, got a ton of growth on top which eventually floated up. Anyways, hopefully this new growth continues.

Oh and ADA 60 - P, in a month, yay!

Took out some HC Cuba and growing it out for my new tank.
Added some DHG, let see where this goes.
