So after a rather busy weekend I was able to take some pictures last night and get them loaded to the site. I was planning on trimming some of the plants as they are very close to the top but decided to wait since everything has only been in the tank for a little over a week (plus I want to get some scissors to use so that I don't pull up any plants accidentally).
On another note, I was walking through some woods near my house and found a tree graveyard... got some cool wood, took them home preasure washed it to get the dirt/rotten/softer wood and such off of them. Wife thinks I am crazy and got some crazy looks from neighbors too!!! (I love confuseing people) I plan on soaking them for a few weeks after I put them through the dishwasher and oven (though one piece may not fit in either so I am going to have to think of something else for that one if I want to use it), and use a hard brush on them. I will try to get some pictures of them tonight.
Now for the pictures (if you see anything that might help please speak up! and if you could help me to identify some of these plants that would be awesome too):
After 1 Week everything is looking alright. There is still some algae, and some of the grass plants have not really changed. But it is still early!
Bubbles that start at the base of the Amazon Sword and travel up the leaf. Not sure if it is O2 or CO2? But I have noticed a few plants that have bubbles that either come from the base or from where the plant was cut.
This is my Temp CO2 and I think an Onion plant. Not sure what the Red plant is called yet but I am going to get them all identified here sometime!
This is a nice close up of my Assassin Snail. Can algae grow on them?
The growth on some of these is just crazy for it only being a week. IMO that is...
Some Star Grass I believe it is and an SAE chilling on the Amazon Sword leaf!
This here is a mystery plant to me? I got it with the bundle I got from Sarlindescent so I will have to ask, as I have no clue.
Pygmy Chain Sword with algae. These have not grown much, but they are still alive!!!
Hope you are enjoying because I know I am having a blast!
