One of my LFS has a few plants I want to try- ludwigia Cuba, and limnophila hippuroides. My concern is they are emerged stems, and transiting them to submetged... ludwigia had been a solid genus in my tank, so maybe not as worried.about that vs. Thr limnophila (which I recently just lost my aromatica mini).
Water parameters have remained stable since March, but I feel like with this deep canister cleaning the plants will be much happier.
Old water (before the change) was high in N03- no shock there with all the organics in the filter. Somewhere between 40-80ppm. The new tested out around 20-30, which is where I dose.
PO4 between 5-10ppm for both.
Looking to get more consistent with the filter cleaning. Back to every few weeks could really make an impact.
On another note, it seems the Panda Garra may eat BBA? Still trying to figure it out, but the rocks seem to be clearing up. The BBA grows, then if I use some Met 14 in the tank it does back from the rocks, becoming a bit red. I know that is common, but cool to see a few pumps work like that. So long as its not on the plants, I am okay with the rocks! Looks kinda nice for now.
