    Update on DSM Thank you everyone for advises and comments. Very appreciated. So I guess it is time for an update ... So far so good, I'm having some issue with one plant as you will see in the pictures below but overall I'm relatively satisfied with where it's going. I do have to trim though...

    Another go to planted tank but ... with DSM

    Re: Another go to planted tank I've been trying to get a carpet growth with eleocharis acicularis for quite awhile now and never succeded. DSM seems to be the magical method for it. Since I'm not in a hurry, this method suits my needs. Algae is something I need to work on and I'm not in a...

    "Seeking stability" Strolgen's tank

    New memeber.... small planted tank journal :)

    I need to keep this receipe in mind, always had a hard time to properly dose the yeast and baking soda. How long does it run with this proportion ? I have two of this nutrafin ladder and I love them. It is nice to see the bubble raising while their size decrease. It was making me confident that...

    "Seeking stability" Strolgen's tank

    Thank you. It was my thinking too with the red cherry shrimp and it is the reason why I moved all fish out ( the serpae are quite territorial and were nipping on the adult size shrimp). One of the female released her eggs yesterday, I can't wait to see all the babies crawling around :) I found...

    "Seeking stability" Strolgen's tank

    Tanks. I'm still trying to figure out how to get rid of the BBA. In the following, I'm not using the DYI CO2 anymore. I do understand that I need to cut down on my water change since they are the cause of the BBA but I found it difficult not to do water change :shock: Here are one of my best...
