40 breeder high tech

I started this tank out a little more than 1 year ago just to try out a dirted tank.

Substrate: Natureís choice organic raised bed soil capped with turface and black diamond blasting sand on top.

Lighting:
6x 24Ē T5HO

Initially no CO2 and only adding micros. Now Pressurized CO2 with a simple ceramic diffuser and daily EI daily dose but only dosing every other day so about half EI. Brightwell aquatics florin multi for micros.

Filter: Aquaclear 110

Other accessories: hydor circulation pump, 200w heater

Plants:
Crypts, swords, bolbitis, Ammania senegalensis, pentorum, staurogyne Porto Velho and repens, blyxa japonicum, bacopa colorata and another ?green bacopa, ludwigia red, repens x arcuata, myriophyllum mini guyana, heterantera zosterifolia, lobelia cardinalis, AR, AR mini, AR variegata, crypt nurii, ludwigia glandulosa, rotala macandra green, limnophila aromatica mini, L. Pantanal, graticola viscidula, crypt parva, purple bamboo, h. triparta, ?erio, mermaid weed, Philippine and needle leaf Java fern, anubias nana petite, Crinum calamistatum, hygrophila 53b, pogo Kimberly, pelia on mesh, Red Cabomba, Homalomena sekadau, crypt ponderiifolia and 2-3 others Iíve forgotten their names.

Big trim and regrouping today, tried to group plants together better and arrange them out by color and growth patterns.

You're still a showoff.

I've never regretted over engineering a system, but often regretted under engineering one.

You prompted me to start a journal!

If only you knew how much BBA grows on the Crinum... trimmed them all off! Iím sure it will be back.

Any one know if C calamistratum is self pollinating?

I'm glad I prompted it. Not sure about the self fertile thing. May as well try! I've got no idea what you're talking about. All six of my little ones' leaves are floating all over the surface and have no BBA on them at all.
