Thanks for watching and i hope you enjoyed! as far as more fish, i just plan on at least doubling the amount of rasboras and neons that i have. Im trying to keep a very small scale with this tank, to make it look larger than it really is, a discus or angel would ruin the scale. other then doubling up on the schooling fish, i plan on getting an army of crystal red shrimp once im able to get the parameters where they need to be.beautiful tank. I watched the video on mute bc im at work but do you mention if you are going to add more fauna?? something big and colorful like discus or something??
Nice looking tank! Two things and not to criticize in any way but is that the proper way to say "Repens"? -Honest question it sounds like you say Ree-pens I've always said it with the shorter "e/eh" sound Repens. Really just want to know which is the proper lol.
Also you talked about pinching the lower leaves off before replanting. Leaving some of of the leaves in place lower on the stem (when planting any plant) will help anchor it especially if you have a larger "grain" substrate material.
Oh wanted to add... My S repens doesn't seem to get very tall in my tank and when it does it usually lays over a bit and will throw roots down so I've not really trimmed to propogate it other then the odd tall stem or break that might occur. I've had a couple melt offs with it but it comes back much more dense each time. I've recently added a new substrate so we'll see what it does in that.
I have kept this plant for a few years now and it currently carpets nearly the front half of my 125g. Took almost a full year to get to that point. Watch how you clip and replant the clippings. I have had problems trying to get them too close and have had them start to choke out, but you look like you have spaced them well. The root system on this plant is huge for such small stems. A fairly good indicator of your CO2 levels in higher light situations also.
