i would get a 50mm one from greenleafaquariums, or most high pressure ceramic ones work well.

Hi FlyingHellFish,

Great tank and I've been following somewhat! I love how simply desk lamps work for you and that you thought of an uber clean way to incorporate them. But I'm curious when did you add the HOB and why?

thanks.

Thanks fellas,

I just realized my bottles of fertilizers cost more than my lights, it should be the other way around.

The HOB is an old Aqueon 30 that wasn't being used. I just added it for more flow, I believe I added it a month ago. No noticeable difference to be honest.

HC Cuba trim verus not trim. One of the down side to HC is waiting for the trim carpet to grow, it's all yellow and ugly.




Check out my wabi-kusa attempt, it's a easy way to grow HC Cuba.

Major Trim, went a bit overboard here.


To:



Update: So my repens got over taken by DHG and HC, I just removed all of them. The HC Cuba carpet literary fill the void in 3 days. Also, Glosso decided it wanted to creep into the front of the tank. I just left it as it's growing really well now for some reason. It took over a month but I guess it finally got used to my water.

I suggest trimming your carpet down. When it gets thick like yours it has the tendency to die off on the bottom. I used to let mine get to about 1.5 inches . ... nowa days half an inch max.

Great update!

Thanks, I believe it was a tip from Frank Xavier that got my HC looking good. It was extra K and Iron with good Co2 and light of course. Works with my tap water anyways, :P

Speaking of uprooting, check out this guy's HC carpet, I wonder what he doing now.




Update:

Glosso is spreading, DHG is spreading, HC Cuba is spreading, the only carpet plant that didn't was the s.repens. With HC on the left and DHG on the right, the repens never stood a chance. I tried pulling some of it out and the rest is slowly disappearing. The battle rages on for the remaining carpeting plants.

Thanks for the tip. I'm gonna try that. Our water parameters are almost identical here. It must be the K and Fe.
