Hi Tirtha da
Nice to see you here:Happy:
Nice journal, keep it up
Now the tank going to be one month Old. So lets compared the growth in last one month.
One Month Before::
One Month After::
A horizontal shot of the tank.
1. The tank has gone through a very rough Hair Algae period. But now 90% of them died out and rest of them are melting.
2. Stopped dosing extra Iron.
3. Changed the bulbs to 4200K and 6500K.
4. Replanted Glosso for the Third time.
5. Relocate most of the stems from their Original position.
6. Water is 30% cloudy. God knows Why? Reduced phosphate dosing.
Let me know your views. roud:
well, nice metamorphose :113:
any thoughts on fauna?
Thanks for the comment Jurik. Now when ever I am looking at the tank I am being afreid to think, how much I have to do to get the desired effect.
As of now I have no plan for fishes. CO2 is running at 5BPS 24x7 so I don't want to take it down for fishes.
One question.... after seeing the tank, what you think about the foreground? I don't think, Glosso will go well with this setup. How about some other plants? Maybe Lileopus Brasiliense or a mix of Pervula and Vivipara??
What you say?
if available i would plant 1/2 circlet with apogostem helferi and maybe some e.parvula (vivipara will be too big for the forground up to 25 cm ^^) and let some plant free area there - then you will have something like a little arena ..
i´m not sure about this idea - maybe just Lileopus Brasiliense
i suppose you try to achieve 30ppm of co2 in your tank, as there are a lot of plants, there schouldnt be any problems with fishes at day - only maybe at night, for this you will need a solenoid (check your co2 and ph in the morning before the light goes on)
In newyear I thought to do something new and did it. Rip out the Old scape and redid it yesterday. Take a look how it looks like, right after setup.
The first scape was good, but I love this new layout. It's very natural. Good job!
Very interesting!! The wood lends to a medieval look. :rock:
Leah/Carolina, Thanks for your comments. Lets see how this scape matures in next 3 months.
Here is an update after 5 days of Rescaping.
Trimmed out the Aromatica and Ammania.
5 day later view the plant and the moss who is developping well
Hi Tirtha da,
the drift wood is looking nice.....the scaping is also very good:rock:
Nice scapes Tirtha. B-)
Thanks Buddy! I don't have this scape any more.
both scapes were very nice roud:
Excellent DIY'ing too.
Thanks Aron. But failed miserably with MH. Simply could not manage the lighting. Will Redo the tank in next couple of months with T5 HO this time.
Aha.. even rescaped and already thinking about rescaping it again ..
Nothing left except the ferns and Anubias inside the tank. In Summer mercury touched 49 degree C here and I don't have a chiller. So you can understand.
boah unched: .. but for a long term there are 2 ways to go: ice cubes or chiller - think about it
