Welcome Niels! First off, your aquairum looks really great. I love your fish and plant species.

What lighting and co2 are you using?

Oh, you cannot resize photos using the [IMG] tag. The image will just show up as it's original size. Can you resize using photobucket?

Aren't there critical points?

did you plant all the Hemianthus Micranthemoides individually or just acouple stems together? I love how it is growing perpendicular to the substrate. I have about 30 stems all bunched and it forms a bush. I might have to replant one of the bushes for that affect.

Peace,
Ry

I raise my sword in the air in the battle against clado. I have been beaten in this battle but the war is not over. As my wounds heal I amass another army, an army with many legs, an army of Amano's......

I thrust my tridant into the mass of medusa like staghorn. I am wounded but I refuse to take a knee.

No real critical points

The L. aromatica is lovely. I wish I could grow some.

Do you want to share your water parameters and dosing regime?

Only thing I am not sure about are your bulbs, I believe they are 4000K (?) which make the setup look a little on the yellow side. Myself I prefer bulbs in the 6500 - 10000 Kelvin range. Of course, that's totally up to personal preference!

I planted the Hemianthus with 2 stems together. With an Eheim plantstick is it very easy.

My parameters are:
PH 6,7
KH 5,5
GH 9,0
NO2 0,0 mg/ltr
NO3 5 mg/ltr
PO4 0,0 - 0,1 mg/ltr

I'm dosing:
- Profito 10 ml per week.
- Saechem Nitrogen (NO3) 1 ml per week.
- P2O5 2 drops per week.

The lightning is a bit yellow, that's true. But I didn't knew it when I bought the lamps. So I refresh them after a year with 60.000 K's.
