    Thansk guys,

    Well I went on aquabotanic.com and found alot of the plants I need. I only need to find glosso and that cladiphoria (sp?) Ive been searching and it's no where to be found. I am starting to think of willow moss now although I won't have that awesome looks on the wodd anymore. But since this is my first hi tech planted tank I don't mind making mistakes.

    Right now I am having a mysterious problem with my driftwood. There is this white fuzzy cloudy looking stuff. It has been there for the last few weeks. I don't know what to do. I will take picture today and make a thread somewhere.

    Thanks for reading.

    use excel to get rid of the fungus on wood, manzanita usually gets it. just overdose excel, it will go away :D

    Hi,
    You got a fungus... no worries, it's quite normal in new set-up's with driftwood. Basically, it's microorganisms having a meal on your DW.

    Like the old say ''easy comes, easy goes....''

    Regards,

    Joe Faria

    Thanks for the tips. Sorry for not being on the forum as much either. I will wash it tonight. I don't have any excel or ferts either as I will be making these tanks into shrimp tanks. I want them to be beautiful and I want the health of my shrimps the best it could be. I know people dose and still have breeding's but I still think it takes away some life. Smoking is a good way of thinking of it.

    Anyways I will be ordering another filter called the Rapids Mini Canister filter. I want order one and find some lily pipes to fit it. Also I will be making a order from Greenleaf Aquarium. I hope to buy a CO2 System, tools, and some glassware.

    Well It been awhile. Tank is still not where I want it and I will be going through a big update. It's been busy here but I plan to do a refit ( take out the Aqua Soil and put sand) Or a complete rescape. I have Plenty of Scaping materials now though so I should be able to make something more balanced than this scape. More to come this summer hopefully!

    Haha me too... I have definitely improved!

    Well the tank itself looks the same. But I literally don't need to perform any maintenance on the tank itself other than trimming every 1-2 months.

    I don't dose or use Co2 and the tank is very healthy. Sure growth rate is VERY slow but I have other tanks now that I am starting.

    I recently bought about 150lbs of Seiryu stone. And these stones are HUGE (bigger than basketball). So with a recent move to a New bigger and nicer house, I will be making stand all this summer to hold and show my tanks to people who come (instead of having it all in my room).

    So right now I have A lot of plans such as my ADA Mini M (this is another Mini M!), 60-P, and later on might be getting a 90-P or 120-P to feature an awesome Seiryu stone layout.

    I can go on for hours about my plans. But for now I am busy with school 24/7 and I am still in my old house alone until I finish school and summer starts where I can then move all my tanks with out a problem.

    Otherwise I am still just getting into the game of aquascaping, and with other side project as well. So just because I am not here on the site doesn't mean I am out of the hobby it just means that I am up to something, a surprise so to speak.;)B-)
