I recently added Java Moss changed the substrate from gravel to BDBS, replanted Java Fern in a driftwood. Pulled Egeria Densa trimmed and replanted it in new places. I'm trying to get the Fe up to bring out the red in the Flame Sword, but the directions on the API Iron test kits escapes me. My pain level is getting worse every day so lately I'm trying to find a balance with pain killers which will let me function over spaced out.
We have grasshoppers bad again this year so planting outside is a battle. This is a raft bed floating on our Catfish & Koi pond.
I am learning more about fish and plants thanks to everyone here and at theplantedtank as well as backyardaquaponics. Above I've got Brussels Sprouts in a Styrofoam panel with the roots in the water.
This should use the nitrate created in the MMBF (moving bed bio-filter) plus cover the pond for algae control. My aquarium finally has a balance between fish load, feed rates, light duration and fertilizer dosing; no algae on the glass for a week, yay!
