    hey folks :),

    here are pictures of hardscape in tank no 3. the layout of this scape should look like a place you can find often at rock/cliff coast. the waves and tide of the sea creates caves, holes or a path to the rock cause the water washing out the stone over a hundered years.

    plants that i want to use are: glosso (Front corners), MM (up the hill and on the right side behind the glosso to hide the filter) and Fissidens attached with superglue at some spots of the rocks.

    feel free to write any kind of comment or critic.

    cheers

    Flo this is stunning! :rock: I like this the most from the other tanks! I think you should use HC cuba instead of glosso for foreground. Anyway keep us updated! ;)

    thanks mate :rock: it s my favourite hardscape of all 3 tanks too :113:.
    the reason why i won t go for hc is i want to keep this tank very lowtech like tank no1 and i guess hc would melt without continues co2 injection in this tank.

    Hey Flo!

    Nice scape, but very much sand.

    Concerning the plants:
    I'm sceptic if it is a good choice.

    I would prefer hcc or ug.
    And MM will become to big for me.

    Sorry... beeing honest

    but have a nice rest of sunday

    cheers
    Eva

    p.s.:
    You could try elatine hydropiper instead of glosso.
    It's smaller and not that invasive, so you only risk that it may melt in fresh soil, but I'm sure, you knew already...

    Perhaps you could ask Juri for the elatine hydropiper, I knew, he had some, but I#m not sure, if it is still so...

    Or you probably get some at Hannover.

    Patience is the name of the game:frusty:

    cheers

    hey folks,

    another little update via smartphone, better pictures and pics while hiding the cabels will follow as quick as possible.

    for tank 3 + 4 i only use warm and cold LED. maybe i ll remove some of the Reds at tank 2 and change to cold white later.
    i still have some stripes left.
    attached a warmwhite led over tank 1 as well.

    over... :plane:

    Hi Flo,

    Fantastic!
    IMO glossostigma is to big for this scape! I would go for HC.

    Cheers,

    thanks luis,

    what do you think... will i be able to grow hc just with adding easy carbo? i really would like to use hc, but i m a little bit afraid of that it ll melt.

    Hi Flo,

    I'm not sure if easy carbon will replace CO2. I've read over the internet some people saying that Flourish Excel melts HC....I really dont think it's true but I never try it before.

    Regards

    Hey Flo!

    You do not need CO2 neither EC for growing the hcc.
    Light is more important.

    cheers

    These are turning out well, Flo.

    I'm sure it makes for a neat display in your home and you get many compliments from friends and family who visit.

    Do you have plans to place a background behind the tanks?
