Have to say that's a pretty nice little tank.
Thanks man!Have to say that's a pretty nice little tank.
I'm hoping for that. With mostly all slow growers, I wanted a fast growing stem plant to suck up any extra nutrients and give that overgrown look. Also, once it takes off I should be able to offer some solid RAOKs with it to anyone looking for some.very cool! that hygro can be a beast though! I'm interested to see how it fares in such a small tank
So far, tank has only been set up one full week. I had the screen on for the first couple days, but the light has been on 8 hours a day with only the glass lid for the past 4 days with no signs of algae (knock on wood). Also I have been dosing just under 1mL excel daily. My salvinia floaters do block a good bit of light above my java ferns and anubias too.How's the tank doing? You said you were leaving the light as is and planned to dose Excel to balance things- any signs of algae? Will be interesting to see how it does as i'm dosing Excel now too and want to remove the screen.
Thanks, you should create a journal of your 7.5. My crypts melted down to nothing initially, but have since grown back. I plan to give it another week or so before I update with more pictures. Also, I have my LFS guy picking up some galaxy rasboras for this tank since the endlers didn't fare too long. I added a heater that increased the temperature way too quick.I have the Mr Aqua version of the 7.5 cube and I love that little tank. I'm using the finnex stingray because it's dirt cheap and all of my njf are growing and anubias are putting out new leaves, albeit very slowly, but they are coming out. I have frog bit in there too, it's growing fast! My fert regimen is excel whenever I remember and comprehensive once per week. I also use the AC20 which I have used on all of my tanks 10g and below, in my opinion there is no better HOB filter out there. I have been interested in trying the new fluval c series HOB, but have yet to convince myself that I need to replace the AC 20.
My point is that we have very similar setups and you should have great success with yours. I'm looking forward to future updates from you.
I will post some pictures later tonight or tomorrow when I get a chance to take some new ones. But everything is growing great, hygro, crypts, java fern, anubias. The marsilea however, is growing slowly. I am sure that is the norm for this plant, I am just anxious to have a thick carpet plant. I see new growth sprouting up and it appears very healthy. The new growth plantlets are all one noded. I was confused for the first month because I kept seeing 4 leaf noded new growth, but that has since developed into only one nodes.Any more updates? I'm interested to see what the marsilea did!
