You know the MarineColour MC-03 can you set it up to dose from different pumps on certain days as I want to dose every other day one of the ferts ?

This is an absolutely beautiful tank! I am in the (very) preliminary stages of setting up a tank and I will be ecstatic if mine came out half as nice as yours. The colors of the plants are just amazing!

You have an awesome tank there! Wonderful arrangement and contrast of different colors. Very well done!

The plant on the right in this pic is Eichhornia diversifolia.

Quick update!
Im having issues with cloudy water at the moment

It doesnt seem to be green water and my ammonia is at 0.
I have put a uv sterilizer in the tank but it seems to be doing nothing so im going to be doing 20% water changes everyday for a week to see if it helps.

Interestingly enough the plants are loving it. Everything is going crazy - the Rotala sp. 'Goias' has almost fully carpeted the left side, Staurogyne sp "Tropica" has settled in nicely and my UG hs started to spread! Also my Syngonanthus sp 'Belem' is finally looking green rather then a sickly dull lime colour.

My Eriocaulon has split into 9 new plants in the past month and again it has turned a brilliant green rather then sickly yellow.

Any ideas on what type of Eriocaulon this is?

looks like everything is growing realy nice! have u ever tried a biological water clarifier. It usually helps a lot in my tanks when i have a cloudy water problem. could be worth a shot?

Your tank really inspires me to make a Dutch style one for myself. Sorry about the cloudy water though.
