    Aqua soil in netting

    Cyprus Helferi! Good idea. I might choose that :) I’m aware of wabi kusa techniques, I’ll use that as inspiration, thank you. I just need my supplies now! Tropica soil, some sort of netting and the plants themselves. If anyone else has any tips before I go ahead with this that would be such...

    Aqua soil in netting

    Hi guys, I was thinking of adding some long plants in the background of my scape. Maybe plants such as a tall hair grass or vallis, I’m not sure and if you have any suggestions please do tell! I’m just unsure of how to introduce the plants to the back as I just have a very thin layer of...

    I might add some aqua soil to the back of the tank and introduce some stems, is this a good idea or should I keep it as it is? :D Stay safe, Cheers, Ra

    I’ve found they are aggressive, but only to themselves, they don’t bother my other fish! Nice to hear from you cookies, hope you’re doing well, I love your recent scape! [emoji3] Ra

    Update 11/04/20! Looking more mature. I started dosing TNC complete and carbon 1ml a day, plants have really responded well and the small amount of algae has disappeared. P.s Hello lily pipe! She’s back. No more black plastic pipes. Ew. Stay safe, Ra

    No background :) The way the water and the light works make it seem there is a mirror effect. For example, the bottom of the tank looks like a mirror however when viewed from the top, you can see the brown paper mat on the bottom of the glass and there is no mirror effect. Raise your hand if...

    Thankyou. Im in two minds whether to add sand. I might try it one day, can easily siphon it out if it doesn't look right :) Ra

    More Java Ferns, Anubias and Java Moss added on the rocks! Used Juris method of superglue and chopping the moss into tiny pieces, a great way to fix the moss and hopefully provides some nice bushy growth. Ra

    Thanks matey, it means a lot! I since tried the recommended dosage of 6ml every week so I dose that during a WC and never looked back haha. Yeah just lots of BBA like I’ve mentioned, definitely from the wood, I think it needs chucking in the bin. I'm think of starting a new rock only scape...
