thats good stuff!!!
I could kill for these pieces of wood. Really cool hardscape!
I have mini pellia, but the stuff would infest the HG.and act like Caldophora, impossible to remove, same with Fissidens/Riccia, moss of any sort.
The other possible diversion would be removign the HG and using the new Ealtine hydropiper which folks have used a fair amount very recently here.
I do not have enough right now.....but in 1-2 months I will...........
So that hardscape is lava rock? I would like to get some of that, it is freaking awesome.
I sell it on my web site, the BarrReport.com
Ohh then, I will be checking that out. Okay, I just looked at the website, it's about spying, etc....surely I'm missing something? Not exactly an aquarium site...

So the whole plant thing is just a cover? Your actually a secret operative known as Plantbrain? Sounds like a pretty good movie to me.
Yes, it's real deep cover, so much so...I do not even know anything about it
Ignorance is blissB-)
Double blind espionage? That movie sounds like a comedy to me...
Tom, any issues with rotting wood in your experience using the burls and branches? High DOC's from the wood?
Same as any other manzy.
It'll cure after a couple of months nicely.
Thanks, you may have seen on your site that I've been having some health issues with my newest tank and it has had high DOC levels. I wanted to avoid removing the wood to check for problems with the wood, as was suggested. Since I got it from you I'm fairly certain it should be good to go.
This new version of your 70 gallon will be something. The multiple levels will be very cool to see planted and grown in.
Mine goes through the same process then cures well after.
The grass continues to grow in.
Slight haze of algae on the glass on the lower 6-10cm formed the last 1-2 days.
Time to actually clean the tank.
The grass is spreading well into the darker sections that would not support individual plant growth alone. I did not think this grass would do this to this great of an extent and it's a welcome attribute.
loving the tank. whats your filtration set up if you dont mind me asking
Same as all my tanks, wet dry filters/ hang on overflows.
DIY? or is it a name brand, etc?
CPR, I think it's a CR1000 and then the Prefilter is a CS50
Return pump is a lifegard 2200 or something close
the contrast between the wood and the HG is nice
I got about 40 CPD's instead..they looked nice and the open display means they cannot hide. They also will not eat the SSS CRS's.
