I think it looks good
Nicely done...I like the plants you have chosen for this setup. Most are small &/or fine leaf.
Maybe the use of just one color substrate would work better, just a thought.
Looks very nice. the white sand would be too much work for me though.
Awesome scape. Love the white sand if you can keep it clean. As I was looking through the photos I realized the development of the aquascape was not in days but in hours. I'm impressed. Are you injecting CO2?
Love how it looks i really like that wood in there with the Java Moss on it. Little mixture with black and white sand i think looks good.
Thanks! I will look for coarser white sand or tiny pebbles... I'm sure they can be found... somewhere :29:
Yeah hopefully they will grow fast... just wondering... are these oxygen bubbles released by the plant or just trapped CO2?
Thanks! I am still learning how to put them all together... frantically learning how to ID plants too I-)
Spent some time exploring background colours today... what do you guys think?
Gradient Light Blue (printed using Xerox)
Yupe... I am injecting 7 hours of CO2 daily (1bps) using a "generic" glass CO2 diffuser.
Can I have the ID of that reddish plant?
But seems like I have to increase the amount of bubbles... the CO2 monitor shows a pH of around 6.8 to 7.0 :%3
But I'm quite surprised by the little CPU fan... the temperature manage to dip to a low 22ºC... room temperature 25ºC (air-conditioned)
I love the light blue background.
Hehe... that's what I am using now... I can try to lighten the blue a little
Very nice tank! You did a great job with keeping the sand clean. The plants look very healthy too!
What are you using to get that color?
I'm used coloured papers and the gradient light blue was printed using colour xerox
Here's my Yamato Shrimp... the HC is not looking too good
I really like this. The planting works so well for the tank's dimensions, the sense of scale is perfect.
I wonder if your HC needs more nutrients. It does better in nutrient-rich substrate, failing that, a nutrient-rich water column. However, your low bio-mass may result in algae issues if you "OD" NP. Tricky one...
You could try pruning and re-planting off cuts?
Anyway, nice work!
What camera and lens BTW?
Thanks for the compliment
Actually I suspect these HCs are emerse version... they somehow look different from those in my other tank. And I must admit, I didn't really fertilized the soil sufficiently this time round... my mistake
Yeah I will prune them a little.
Using Sony Alpha 100 DSLR.
I love this little tank....great work. Don't worry about the HC planted in sand. It takes a while to get going in sand but once it does it will be worth the wait. I just love the effect of a little clump of hc growing in white sand.
Thanks! Actually I am beginning to find it very unnatural... I somehow got his feeling that the white sand is too fine (like salt) for the HC (or any plant) to growth healthily... will monitor them.
