You said it not me it also looks like you have a big snail problem as well.
Hi ptiJo, 20L low-tech Jungle Looks like one now
Looking forward to seeing your new Aquascape soon Well you have plenty of plants to choose from
Snails are not real problem to me ;-) Although, I must admit some will die during next tank rebuild
What puzzles me much is that "hair" algae growing on the Eleocharis. But, at the same time, Corys seem to love it...
Yep. All should be reused. Or maybe not... Depending on the hardscape I can achieve
I already found someone who's interested by getting a bunch of that moss (when it'll be cleaned of snails
I'll probably start the new layout in a week or two.
Still not redone. Since then...
Ludwigia Repens Rubin that emerged recently.
Ludwigia Repens Rubin that has been out of water for some time now.
Perfect plant to keep when you want emersed things in your tank
Hi ptiJo, Looking good
Beautiful dark colourings on that plant.
Thanks! I like it too ;-)
Still not rebuild... Until, it is, happy shrimp!
Neocaridina Davidii var. Sakura
Another beautiful very good red Shrimp.
Yeah I think this one spend summer outside, in the balcony pond. I brought back 4 ou 5 this fall and they are the darkest one. As if Sun had better light that LED...
Hi ptiJo, Superb Shrimp
Vesicularia Ferriei 'Weeping' Moss going emersed.
The moss looks great. Do you have to spray it everyday to keep it moist? Or does it sustain itself like that?
That moss looks very much like a mini fern, is it as delicate as it looks?
@chiangstar: It runs its life alone ;-) All I do is refill water once a week. Water never gets higher than the vertical glass part that can be seen on pic#1. And water nearly never gets under the DW level.
@keithgh: hum... not really. When I take some bits away, I use aquascape pinsettes and just select a "leaf" and pull. I can hardly remember a leaf that broke. Most of time, I end with a 5-10cm moss bit.
Hi ptiJo, I Love this moss I do the same but i just pull lumps off with my fingers
You may have thinner fingers than I so
OK, here's the new version. Just finished yesterday. Some things went up tonight. I'll have to tune a few things new week-end when they have sink again Now, I hope I'll get a huge Eleocharis wall soon !
