nice selection of background plants!
that is going to fill in nicely with some color!
Some new pics...
And a few more...
I have to say that this is amazing growth for such a short period.
Yes, I'm very happy with it. I wouldn't mind the carpet filling out a bit quicker but it will be worth the wait I'm sure
can you already see some new growth of the brasiliensis?
Yes It's starting to send out a few runners on top of the gravel and also growing quite tall. I am going to trim it today to try and force it to spread across instead of growing upwards.
All is looking very healthy. Braziliensis i think is relatively a slow growing plant.
I can understand you are saying it is slow compared to all those stems
Arcuata is not a super fast growing stem as well compared to other stems you have. It is looking good so do not worry about it.
First trim ever...cleaning up the bits that come off is a mission!
Pearl city...yeeehawww! <)
Few more pics with a new inhabitant, Hercules the shrimp :muscle:
It is looking great! The plants suit the tank perfectly, and it is really cool that you got the shrimp .
Its getting there. I'm getting a bit concerned about the carpet and the stems being quite thin. I'll give it another week and then looks at the options. Might boost light to 7 hours a day or so.
What happens if you leave out the CO2 after a tank has been established? Plants grown and carpet formed etc.
Everyhing is going well. Do not want the carpet in 1 month
If you stop co2 most of the plants will die. Some will grow very slowly.
Turns out saying "I don't have algae yet" and messing with the CO2 level is a really bad idea...
keep the co2 high
looks like you got some diatoms, but no worry - keep on frequent wc and high co2 and they will disappear in no time
3 weeks later...yeah, I should have spent less on the tank and more on a camera.
how about a full frontal shot?
Congrats Brad, it is looking fab!! The plants looks great..
