Roy have you tried the old blanched Iceberg lettuce trick over night?
No i have not!!! Thank you I forgot about that one " Old brain going" Will give it a go
Hi Asthaparhim, Thank you
Hi Icethunder, Thank you
Hi All,More photos
Roy most aquascapers shudder when they see any Algae but it greatly improves those rocks making every thing look far more natural.
Hi Keith, The algae on the rocks never bothers me. In fact I love the patina it gives
I like it for appearance it gives the aquascape a far more natural look plus its great food for shrimps.
Simply stunning Roy !!!!!!!!!!!!!
I would call it a small green reef...
Hi All, Before i started this tank I was trying to attach fiss to a couple of rocks in a damp plastic bag. Well it looked like the fiss had all died
So I put the rocks aside for a couple of weeks dry. Then used one of the rocks in this scape.
Well nearly 60 days later the fiss has started to grow Tough stuff fiss moss
I changed the light setting so you can just about see the fiss growing on the rock one of the fiss plus couple of photos of other bits.
Beautiful pictures Roy!
The Fissidens... Talk about a tough plant!
I really like the creative use of algae!
Great pictures Roy
Wonderful! These algaes are the cherry on the top, if they stay like this - Roy!
This is the kind of algaes I dream to have... Mine are too invasive.
Hi Hallas , Icethunder , Evelyn, Thank you
Algae is a friend sometimes It gives the rocks the aged look
Evelyn, The algae are a happy accident Still working on how to keep them looking natural though
Great photos looks like every thing is going along very well.
Hi Keith,Thank you All seems to be going well I was amazed with the fiss that started to grow after all that time Looks cool though
Really beautiful! Excellent idea with the algea!
I really like the last picture, the "Shrimps' Cave"!
Hi Glomeidae, Thank You The Fiss moss was an accident I thought it was dead
My fav photo is the bubble
Hi All, 62 days on Tank has had another trim Fiss is doing well
One thing I don't like is the shape of the HC LH side So will be reshaping this part over the next few weeks.
Thought I would try out my new C02 drop checker Still running DIY Co2 on this little one. I was pleased to find that it went green after a few hours
Looking forward to going pressurised Co2 on the next Scape and changing over to EL ferts too Another learning curve coming up
Glomeridae Took out the Co2 and Filter for the photos
Looking very good, my only concern is the path looks very squarish do you intend to let the plants grow onto the pathway to give it a gentle shape.
