Ready for plants this week

Ready for plants. Still having trouble keeping the driftwood down, but it is better than it was.

Looking good. Liking that piece of driftwood, its a nice looking piece. What substrate are you using?

Thanks

Caribsea

The wood has a nice hole for a plant to sit right in the center. I think I am going to put an Anubias Nana Petite there so that the roots flow down under the wood.

So far so good with it. It clouds up the water when moved, but that goes away fast enough. I would use it again

Im trying Aquavitro Aquasolum Black for my 10G planted. Its nice, but I didn't add enough substrate initially, and adding it afterwards really clouds up the water. I've tried washing it to no avail.

I think I read the the caribsea does not do that but it is important to mix it up with the existing if you have to add more. But.... I have no idea where I read that...... Sooooooooo, uh, I don't know if that was much help
