@MaineAquatics
Well its isnt flawless anymore. Got some bba growing there.

3 days of co2 failure resulted in some bba :icon_frow



I just hope it is working properly now!
Gave the hairgrass and spraybar a second h2o2 treatment today.

Is the tallest plant stargrass??? I've never tried it but the plant finter says it only gets 6 inches tall, but I'm guessing the plant in the video was taller than 6 inches. According to the plant finder which is not so reliable right now just let it grow to the water surface and boom, flower.

PS what's in the spray bottles hanging off the tank?

@150EH
Spray bottles are h2o2 (red) and just water (green).
Whenever I do a water change I use the h2o2 spray the inside of the glass. (dont ask me why/bad habits)
The other one I just use to clean the outside of the aquarium glass.

The stargrass is taking over the tank taking away all the light.
And still no flowers :hihi: so i took the scissors out.

Thanks

@magma;
Well now I've got more room for another tank. :)

@fusiongt
Thanks! I really love this camera!
The tank looks good in the morning with the light dimmed to 1%.
But I cant take pictures of that because the light intensity is just too low.
