Yep. I'm pretty satisfied with how fast it's growing. Maybe in a couple of more weeks it'll be ready for filling.

Thanks. Unfortunately I enjoy DSM tanks so much that I hate to fill them. No worry about water changes or algae
I hate to rush this tank in the dry stage, but poor planning with regards to the contest coming up means that I'll have to fill it a bit sooner than I would prefer.
One of my favorite things about the hobby is watching the plants grow, so any way to make them grow faster is too much fun for me haha.

There's some miracle gro plant spikes and some root medic tabs that I put in there a few months ago before the rescape haha. I also mixed in 1/4 tsp of KNO3, KH2PO4 and K2SO4 into the 500mL spray- bottle that I went through in about 4 days to give the plants an extra kick haha
I'm also running a lot of light for ~16 hours per day (4x39W T5HO @ 3 inches above the tank)

I'll have to bite that and try a "DSM" one of these days. Nice job man!

Thanks Speedie
The stauro is getting taller. The emergent leaves are shorter, and more almond shaped. Almost time to trim and replant. Though, I may just push the stems down so that they are laying on the substrate.


This stem has been in here since I rescaped. It's growing like a weed.

You can see it in the front right exactly a month ago

and on 7-2

And, wouldn't you know it, I have crypts popping up everywhere. I guess I didn't get all the roots pulled out, huh?

And, in unrelated news (to this tank at least)

It's almost going to be a shame to put water in!

Looking good!
