So imagine the FTS from about 3 weeks ago, but super grown out and tangled up in rotala.
Had so much rotala rotundafolia, ended up giving a lot to my wife, and kinda pitching the rest (all ratty and had a TON of snail eggs hiding in it).
Ludwigia repens is growing nicely, and man I love the red hue it's taking on. Macrandra is faring better, with some new growth, and I could have easily bought some new stems, but I like nurturing this group back to health.
So, brings me to today, where my wife and I decide to go to Preuss' Pets in Lansing. Awesome store. Didn't get a pressurized CO2 setup like I was hoping for (that's gonna be 10 weeks down the line (I'm shooting for June 13th)) but got to thinking I should redo the tank. The hairgrass was just an algae magnet, plain and simple. I found it annoying more than anything. So I got some HC to replace it. But HC and the larger size of Flourite regular don't get along well in my mind. So, Flourite Onyx Sand was added to my cart, and we headed out. My wife picked up two bunches of ludwigia ovalia, and got one bunch of golden nassea for a buck (nice deal). She didn't really want the nassea (but liked it better than the other plants) so most of it is now in my tank.
So we get home, watch Army of Darkness, and I then get down to redoing the tank. Mixed in the onyx sand with eco-complete and go to town.
Woohoo! Of course, this means I have to get the dealeo re-cycled, but that's fine with me. If the tetras die, I have some ideas for replacements.
Pictures after lunch tomorrow.
