Did the much needed overhaul of the tank
I replaced the substrate completely got rid of the large river stone. Now I'm using Pondcare Aquatic Planting Media
, Capped with some standard black aquarium stone. Not quite sure if i want to keep this as the cap or try something else, it does hold down the other stuff quite nice. I have root tabs so the soil, get everything started.
I had plans of a real nice rock setup, but... I found my rock's lovely stripes were Pyrite. From what searching I did I found the to be a no no for an aquarium.(is this true or did I misread?) So im stuck with my old rocks and, tiny piece of Driftwood for my hardscape. I want to get out and try to hit up some creeks/rivers for some nice DW but, here in CO we got lots of conifer trees which are no no's too. I might have to look at the lfs or online.
I added two different types of Hygro since my last post also.
Setup a DIY Co2 system, its using a bamboo diffuser at the moment. I ordered a Glass one on ebay so just waiting on it.
Layout, need to find a source of HC here locally, I really wanna start a carpet in the open areas.
Messing with the camera settings, this one looks more like what I see.
I need hardscape suggestions, please help!!!
I need to keep a cave/overhang of some sort for my Bamboo shrimp and Pictus, they get stressed without cover.
