just over three weeks ago..
clean pipes :)
already placed moss when i set it up, just taking long to grow, finally getting there though.. i don't want to see the rocks at all,...
I wanted to do something like this, without the moss and wood, but also with a little more colour..
Let's see, back row left, giant hygro, then stellatus, then wallichii, then aromatica then rotala vietnam, then colorata
middle row left, rotala...
its about 1.5 bubbles per second through an ada diffuser
i need to clean my lily pipes :P
needed a trim again.
i tried to do some layering..
back right is rotala colarata and front right is rotala ceylon i think :)
i manually removed all the thread i could, then i trimmed the stems quite low below the level of where the thread was, and then added some excel....
hey victor :)
lights are on for 8 hours, co2 comes on and goes off with the lights.

and two weeks later
after a clean and a trim
and then i got a little busy :P
then the typical setup issues
this was a week or so later:
then i planted it:
it started like this:
i am using tap water, it comes out the tap around 7-7.5..

How are we mortals supposed to feel, looking at your beautiful tank?? I guess sick with...
I just cut the stems off as low to the ground as possible and replant in amongst the old roots. I figure they will break down pretty quick and...
Does it look like this?
What kind of tubing is that?
The only times i have seen that is when i have put rubber in my tank, either the hoses from my fx5 or growing on the...
good job dood! well deserved!
Those sawbas are gorgeous fish!
lower the water level a little its too wet..
you can also mist with a dilute mixture of excel and water, this will kill and moulds and fungus..
you could use old aquasoil that has turned to mud, place it in large flat plastic containers, fill it up and plant some cuttings. as the water...
what was your sister doing different or not doing for the tank to deteriorate so?
+1 its normal its the growing tip...
my intake is on the back right in the bottom corner, my spraybar is then above it on the right side wall at the top, so it sets up a circular flow..
Re: James' ADA 60p setup
that little bit of white sand in the corner is the perfect finishing touch, well done!

You cant go wrong with ada's aquajournal and the aga competition site with previous results.
I would love to see this in english, i signed on :)
+1 on some root tabs or root ferts.. flourite black sand is nice to plant in and looks good, but does not contain many nutrients..
a squeeze of mulm or some gravel from a cycled tank will do just as much as bacter 100..
the other products do not form part of cycling.
really stunning layout!
the background left plants could have used a few more days growing after their trim before you took the photo, but other...
no guides on the angles, you should try and line up the grain of the rock so it is mostly parallel as it would be in nature.

i would like to contribute however i can.
i spoke to christel about translating her book to english, she said it was quite expensive..
nope, most fly larvae are fish food not vice versa :)

i have seen several threads on APC's emersed section growing this. I have also seen some people dry starting with this..
topping it and replanting is a great way to start fresh. once it gets to the height that you want it, trim it down by about 2/3rds. you can...
yeah it should do exactly the same, i ran mine for about 18 months like that and the flow was just fine with one fx5, two must be crazy...
yea pretty much, except i use a spraybar on the left hand side instead of the lily pipe, and my diffuser is under the spraybar...
