One big piece of mopani wood, some river stones, and a terracotta pot.
I dose with pfertz nitrogen and flourish 3 times a week. I am planing on starting to dose NPK+CSM+B that i have from GLA but havent figured out exactly how i want to do it yet. I also use flourish root tabs.
KH: 2° degrees
GH: 4° degrees
I just added the Ada aquasoil and the laterite into the substrate and did a rescape recently and im pretty happy with how it looks. At first i bought the big piece of drift wood and really liked it but recently im not sure, it kinda dominates the tank and takes up too much room. Please tell me what you think and any scaping advice is very welcome. Also name suggestions? Thanks!
Ill post some more pictures soon.
