Thx. The FX5 provides a ton of flow on its own, but when the timer that controls my lights come on(30 minutes after my co2 does), a Hydor powerhead starts up as well. The FX5 output is in the front let corner and discharges along the front of the tank from left to right. The powerhead is in the back righthand corner and flows along the back of the tank from right to left. TONS of flow.Terrible indeed! Curse you and your stunning tank :hihi: lol jokes!
Looks great!! I actually like the longer leaf look on the ferns, do you have a lot of flow in that area to make the leaves move?
thank youSeveral types of spiders can "walk" on the film on top of the water.
Their body is not heavy enough to break through it.
That would be the same film(not a technically correct term) which causes a water drop to hang onto anything and when you overfill a glass for the top to be rounded.
Love that scape and especially the Cypress.
very kind words. I was looking for something a little different what i planned this scape.looks great! The carpet and rocks hint at a large scale iwagumi but then the stump, java ferns and swords make it look like a natural style tank. You have yourself a super-sized natural iwagumi scape. Quite the niche!
Thanks. They are ok. I lost 2 a few weeks back and am still puzzled over what was the cause. Im going to pick up a few more, hopefully.you don't give yourself enough credit. that is an amazing tank. great job on the carpeting and a very natural looking tank. how are the angels??
thx, ill check your out.WOW, hope my 180 will look this good! anyway heres the link to my tank. http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/showthread.php?t=643914
thank you for the very kind words.Wow! I really really like your tank. I'm working on a very similar design. I think you really captured the natural "river" look very well.
You didn't mention any CO2, do you inject any? I'm not injecting any in mine, and I'm hoping I'll be able to get as much plant growth as you have!
I hope you can find a friend with a good camera so you can get some glamour shots. I know the pictures you've posted don't give your tank the justice it deserves!
I do use co2. I use a homemade super sized Rex style reactor.
i am currently using the one on the right.
