Oups, I forget one picture!
PS: The two other pictures are on the page 2! =)
Hi Glomeridae, Well lets hope changing the liquid Co2 works Plants look fine Love the group pic
One Q?? What is the clear plastic box for ?? Attached to the front glass
Thanks Greenfinger! Yes, the second pic of the first post is an exemble, HC cuba are all looking like that now, I hope it will continue!
So, the plastic box is the new CO2 system: I've got the bottle behind the tank (you maybe can descry it!), and CO2 comes in that plastic box. Then, it intermingles with the water. You have to put CO2 every morning apparently!
I really ignore if it is working or not, so I try!
You can see it here:
Hi Glomeridae, Ho Got it now The cost put me off So i went for DIY Co2 Bit of mucking about every 4 days Changing the bottle But i like fiddling about How long does the can last ?? One other thing the size of the bell Could you not cut it down to the size you need to fill it to each day Just a thought
Home made is also a good thing! I decided to buy it a long time ago, because I didn't know a lot about CO2 and aquascape at this moment! (not sure it's "at"! ^^')
Apparently, the bottle could last 65 days for a 20 liters tank, don't know if it's a lot!
Perhaps I will make my own CO2 production one day!
Yes, I already think about that, waiting for help from my family to make it, I think the contact with water will be improve! Thank to make me remember about that!
Hello everyone, some updates:
I really ignore why but the system of CO2 isn't working , the CO2 stay in the plastic box... Maybe not enough contact with moving water!
I'll try to make it working anyway!
Here some news from my aquascape!
Plants are still growing well and I am looking for a CO2 system! I will see that next month! I hope it will help HC to grow!
The Hydrocotyle has some very delicate and beautiful flower! =)
Like you can see, the moss is green, contrary to one month ago when it was brown! =)
Sorry, I forget this one with the two aquascape (and filters!):
(you can see my other tank here: http://www.aquascapingworld.com/threads/my-second-aquascape.9076/#post-93111)
Hi Glomeiridae, Wonderful Scapes These are coming on in leaps and bounds Here is a link for Co2 http://www.co2art.co.uk/
They do the bits to fit a soda stream bottle Thinking of getting this system myself soon
Hi Greenfinger, thank you very much!
Thanks for the link, is it complicated to do a CO2 system by oneself?
Hi Glomeridae, You are welcome
Looks like you are getting things under control now I have never used CO2 but once you work it all out and it works perfectly it certainly helps planted tanks.
When I started "Computers" were very rare and the size of a large room certainly not for private use.
Some news! I'm still working on this aquascape and looking for a great CO2 system! ^^
Some pictures of the tank!
@keithgh I can't put all my pictures in only one message, I'm really sorry!
Hi Glomeridae, Looking good I think its time the moss had a trim
On the LH side it needs a tall plant there Crypt nevellii with maybe some Crypt pava in front of that . Just a though
Hi Greenfinger! Thank you so much!
On the picture I already trim a litlle the moss, it's never finish to grow up!
Should I trim it more on your opinion?
Actually, I think the Aquascape will look less sad with the CO2 system, because with the rotting Hemanthius...
Yes, excellent idea!
Crypt nevellii is a nice plant, I'd never saw it before! I think I will follow your idea!
As to the moss just a little of the top and the front side Then you will see more of the plant at the RH side.
When you sort out your Co2 system your plants will take off in no time and the HC will flourish.
Crypt N has 2 leaf shapes. Above water it looks like Crypt pava but bigger. Under water it changes to a longer thinner shape and a lighter green.
The Crypt N will grow to about 30 cm.When the plant settles in you just pluck the longer leaves off from the crown and new leaves will appear in no time. This way you can control the height of the plant.I have this plant in both my Aquascapes
Ho Crypts do better with a rich substrate.I just use fert tabs every 2-3 months
One more thing Crypt pava Retains it leaf shape above or below water.
Thank for all your advices Greenfinger! Seems to be a nice plant!
I can see that my "Aquascape Internet Shop" has this plant!
Yes, I'm looking for the CO2 system with my father! ^^
My only concern with that tank at the moment all those small rocks will be over grown very quickly and never been seen.
That tank would make the perfect Shrimp tank.
If you use PhotoBucket it resizes the photo for Forums etc, I think the limit is 4 or 5 per posting.
Hi Keithgh, thank for your answer! =)
Do you think I must replace those rocks with something else?
