Cheers james, time to get the TPN out then!
and to share how it looks like with fissidens!
did plant the UG with or without stonewool?
Without as i peeled most of it off
I have tried UG twice, first time without stonewool (hard job to clean the wool of and pick out those tine plantlets) second time I tried the cluster method and all UG melted in the second attempt. in the first it was doing fine
mmm, the odd thing is its in random bits and not just one area of the tank. Will see how it goes but im glad the HC is growing as I sometimes have problems with this. Im planning a HC carpet in my new 90cm thats coming in september so this will be a good learning curve
very nice, is there any updates on "icarus village"?
good point aaron, I did a major trim of it on Monday as everything growing on had cuased a problem with flow and a bit of algae got hold. Its looking better now but a bit bare as I had to chop the lilleopsis. I also got some glass lilys and the flow is much better now!
Ill post a thread on it here with the originals and some updated pics
stu, you may know already but whack tons of co2 @ HC.
my HC get's co2 fired directly at it, along with extra easycarbi dosing, you just cant fail mate.
fert it to hi hell and back also.
i'd love to see a new scape from you in a 90cm 8)
its all whacked up hi mark along with daily water changes at the moment
Cant wait for the 90
Quick update from me on the nano. UG is melting HC and hairgrass are growing HC has altready had two haircuts this week. The plug of greener HC in the front is a new planting from where there was a hole in the UG. Im hoping a little of the UG will take hold so I can grow it on but im not holding out much hope at the moment
Fissidens on the rock also needs a trim to get it compact.
Up the Co2?
how much co2 do you inject at the moment?
have you got any pond life in there yet mate?....if not, co2 all the way. any chance of getting the co2 flowing downwards? i see the co2 is forming bubbles on the surface, which indicates to me not enough is getting into the tank.....
as soon as i saw that in mine, BAM! directly under the outflow it went with the out flow pointing downwards
just a thought bud.
shame on the UG.
it shows how small this thing is, cus the fissdens looks big!nice going mate
i too, cant wait for you to start your 90!
im doing around 1bps co2 24/7 at the moment and yup, the diffuser is directly under the flow from the HOB so as soon as it rises its pushed down towards the substrate. Ill try doubling the co2 as theres no critters in there yet. drop checker is lime green approaching yellow currently by the way
a quick update of the tank. no photos at the mo as they are still in my dslr as my pc isnt set up at present.
I did a quick video on my wifes compact tonight (with a bit of the Dark Knight in the background soundtrack!)
Dont quite know how to embed Flickr videos so heres a link
Tropica Aquacube planted Iwagumi - 6-9-09 on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

its looking great....plz keep us updated.
The scape is looking excellent from all angles, I think it's a bigger challenge to design a scape to be viewed from 3 sides, rather than just the front.
It's a shame we cannot enter videos in the contests, perhaps nanos would do better if we could.
