Heres a picture of my hard scape. Since this picture, I have added more substrate to give it some slope. I am gonna start planting right now. I'll post an update once I get everything planted.



Heres some picture of my HC that I will be using.

nice, i like iwagumi setups. i however suggest you turn all but the center stone so the tops are sloped instead of flat.

That piece had a shape of a tree stump. How do you suggest that I turn it? Possibly lean it to the left or right or back? Thanks for your suggestions.

Heres another pic. I can tell that the HC grew in the past 5 days. Right now im cranking the CO2 to keep the algea away. I have a short light period of 5 hours and I have 4 bunches of fast growing stem plants that I added in today to help soak up the extra nutrients.

Wow I havn't updated this journal in over a month. Currently I have no new pictures to post as I just sold my camera this past week. I have another one thats on order which should arrive sometime early next week. I'll post a photo update as soon as it comes in.

Lets see... 2 weeks ago I started dosing EI after I noticed my HC starting to turn brown. The HC is starting to look alot greener now. I have no major repots or algae at this time. I recent'y increased my photoperiod by to 6 hours instead of 5. I'm still debating if I should increase it by 1 more hour. Heres my schedule.

50% H20 Water Change on Sunday
1/4Tsp-KN03 Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday
1/16Tsp-KH2P04 Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday
1/16Tsp-K2S04 Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday
1/16Tsp-Trace Monday, Wednesday, Friday
Nothing on Saturday
