Thanks, I hope you enjoy the journal. I'm glad you find it informative, I'm learning along with you guys too. :bounce:Subscribed. Great info here and awesome setup! roud:
There is, or *was as the PAR values were taken for the older generation 1 fixtures. I wish I had a Par meter to measure the reading but I been told PUR is a better representation of useable light. Glosso has taken off so much that I think it's choking the Blyxa on the right side.Love the purple hue and plant health you have going on in here. Looks great. roud:
Got any PAR data for the fixture?
As much as I love nature aquariums, honestly, I get sick of them for a time, then fall back in love with it.Thanks Matt! I feel as if the scape is getting stale, I'm not getting much attention with this anymore. I guess that how the cookie crumbles sometimes, I would love to get some opinions on how to "jazz" up the tank.
I'm torn between creating a scape that appeals to everyone versus creating a tank that I personally like. Should I follow these "rules" set out in ADA's magazines, or do you guys think it's better if I blaze my own trail?
The plant in the middle of the carpet is ludwigia brevipes. It's creeping along with the glosso with side growth producing new terminal buds. Try it out Matt, I think you will like it!
I actually found it ironic that you named the journal randomly and now you have the ability to do a nice purple light spectrum.^ That is exactly what I'm going through, very nicely written. I can see how the hobby can get stale after a while. It's as if the initial excitement is only temporary then you hit some sort of a wall.
Grape juice flavour aquarium!
Thanks Matt! The Nano AI fixture is awesome! It has 10 LED compare to 9 on my fixture. I think they are better than mine, but if you're looking for the best, take a look at Elos' planted pro LED fixtures. It's a 1000 dollars and you can upgrade it. Those lights alone cost the same as my entire set up.That looks sick my dude. Love it.
Those LED's are sick. I saw a demonstration on them the other day when my friend was wanting to debate if his AI Sol's were still up to par (he got them less than a year ago). Just out of curiosity, is running through color spectrum over long periods of time look good on plants? I know it looks amazing on corals but I have always wondered what the effect is on a planted tank.
Thanks man, I dig your 60P too. Try out Glosso if you're looking for an easy to carpet plant, it's as easy as hair grass.man those stems look good!!
Thanks!Very nice setups you have!!
Hahah, there a few other people in the 60P Club that in my opinion have better tanks. Get a 60P and join the club, Chris. It's really the perfect size for a starter planted tank.I have to say this is one of the tanks I must look at every day. Forum says I'm an algae grower, but if you ask my girlfriend, I'm definitely obsessed.
Appreciate the kind words. There a list of things the judges look for in those contests and I can't seem to create a scape with all the categories in mind. Especially the name, I mean, how much points can "Purple Monkey Dishwasher" get? If I put a generic name like "Whispers of the Wind on cold autumn shoulders", bang! 10 points!you grow some nice plants
I cant even stand to look at the AGA entries most of the time because of people like some of the judges (judges with tanks I cant seem to find a picture of in most cases) that bash someone's honest attempt at an aquascape.
