We all have asked ourselves exactly the same question at one time or another.
In some cases its not what you have done at all.
In my case every summer (holiday resort area) our water supply is all over the place.
Many years ago a small Goldfish LFS did a water change as per usual then closed the shop, next morning every fish was dead, there was ??? in the water supply.
In the big drought recently they were adding ??? to kill a bacteria trouble was it also killed the good bacteria in your tank, thank goodness for Seachem Stability to boost up your bacteria.
True true. I want to see if I can stabilize it without any additions if this doesn't work plan B
Its the old story its often easy to fix the problem but finding what caused it is a totally different matter.
Here is an update
By the look of all those plants I would say you have a very healthy tank.
I hope so .
I'm patiently waiting to see if something wrong happens this week, I'll do another 25% water change on thursday. I want to modify a bit the plant positioning but I'm wating abit for them to settle down and grow some roots.
Hopefully I will get the test kit on monday to see exactly how healthy is my tank .
Here is a front shot:
I followed your advices and replaced the RH side rock with the darker rock which I had in front, repositioned the other rocks, still not satisfied but I will do another set of modification soon . Also I need to re-arrange some plants.
I'm waiting for the background plants to develop a bit so it should cover the entire background. In the empty area of the background I have some vallisneria nana but they are 'baby' plants now.
All we can see is a photo where you can see it how it is in every detail.
Sometimes the same rock in the same position but rotated or turned over will give you a totally different look.
Keep trying until you get exactly what you are looking for.
Got it. I will move things around for sure.
Always try to position a rock that the best sides are always seen if not soften with plants.
Good tip Keith, I'll keep that in mind in my next set of rescaping . Thanks!
That is a nice clean photo of your healthy plants.
Yep indeed , thanks Keith. The only plant that isn't doing well is Eleocharis. It needs pressurized CO2, I thought I could make it grow how it supposed to grow with EasyLife EasyCarbo, guess not . Afterwards I found out that there are some easy plants to grow a carpet with.
There are plenty of carpet plants that do not require Co2.
You can open a new topic.
This is a good carpet plant.
Nice one man thanks, I'll look it up I think I seen it somewhere for sale.
I'll make a research on carpet plants that does not require CO2 and if I don't manage to find something that I like I will open a topic for suggestions .
