    I used smaller stones to achieve the depth: now when you look at the right side it looks like far away:113:

    Hey my friend:yo:

    I am temporarily on a business trip, from yesterday afternoon till tomorrow evening. HC started to spread slowly, but also some branches melted, and diatoms started to appear.

    I already see one thing that could have been done better with HC: I should have used Powder type of Aquasoil as a top layer of the substrate. Viktor Lantos from GA showed us a great example how fast HC grows when using powder type of aquasoil. It just roots much much easier and that leads to faster filling of the substrate.

    But, it doesn't mean mine won't grow. It will grow, but a bit slower.

    I will do my best to make some photos as soon as more changes will be visible. :113:

    Cheers!

    As you can see, green dust algae started to appear, and I am doing my best to fight her (increasing PO4 to around 1,0 ppm, nitrates around 20 ppm). For nex picture, I'll be brushing stones more carefully :muscle::rock:

    And those photos were made by mobile phone.

    Cheers<):)
