Trimming? No...its more of a Plant Harvest

What a busy month! Lol, Havent had the time to trim in 2 months.


Took out some pellia, coke can for comparison.

It might look flat from the first picture, but this afro is 5 inches thick!

Spread the afro out, trim out some moss and the total weight is 5 pounds.


Was thinking about attaching them to these nice looking pebbles. What do you think?

Done? Nope. The naked skinny driftwood on the right was were the pellia was attach and was harvest. But...

More pellia...............here......................... .............................here...here.........*
*=Place pellia was harvested

Its a 200 gallon if anyone is asking, diy co2. Still not complete, still waiting for L. Cuba to grow behind the pellia.

I am taking pellia outside in my backyard to grow out in sunglight. So look for alot of pellia ROAK coming in the next month or two!

What a nice growth tank!
And yet it is using DIY CO2? That is a great low tech approach to superior result

Thanks! Heres a sneek peek at the diy bottle.


But this diy co2 is getting old, Its time for an upgrade. I'm waiting for my 20 pound pressurize tank to come in the mail, so no more diy-ing for every two week.

for the DIY, how do you get the CO2 into the tank and how do you keep it controlled?

Heres a pics:


For a big tank co2 control is really easy, trial and error until I get my ideal mix to get the correct output. I only use one filter on this tank btw, its an eheim 2217, nickname my co2 reactor. The reason for it being unplugged because gph would double and it would cause a huge turbulence and co2 would wear out the eheim powerhead.
