Hurray! I just got my plants in from aquabotanics and they are awesome! I ordered Rotala indica, Didiplis diandra, HC, Rotala macrandra, Cyperus helferi, Ludwigia glandulosa, and Blyxa japonica. Every thing came in superb condition, except for the Rotala macrandra, but I understand that it is a VERY delicate plant so no worries, I think it should start to heal soon. Well, since this is a journal, I have to list the equipment, so here it goes:
Lighting: Coralife 1x65w
Filter: Rena XP 1
Heater: Marineland Stealth 150w and maybe another 50w that I have lying around depending on the temperature stability.
CO2: 5lb cylinder w/ Azoo regulator
thermometer: coralife digital
lighting time: 2pm to 10pm, so 8 hours right now
Ferts: I haven't made up a dosing schedule, because I really don't know how much of Plantex CSM+B, KNO3 and Mono Potassium Phosphate ( I forget the chemical form of this
) I should dose. I have a cool digital gram scaler that I can use also. Can anybody suggest a dosing plan for the plants I have above?
Its late and there are bubbles everywhere so I will get pictures to you tomorrow.
Also, I haven't started dosing ferts or CO2 (need to get the cylinder filled), but will my plants be okay?
Edit: I also forgot to tell you that I only have 2 bags of eco-complete in there right now as the third bag is sitting in my ten gallon tank, so I need to wash it
