I ended up ordering tropica 1-2 grow plants from two different sites. one of them is porton aquatics and the other was aquaessentials. Porton aquatics seemed to have a good deal going on as they were doing 2 pots mix and match of tropic for £4. Its a shame they didnt have all the...
New member, first post.
I have setup a new 30L tank and in it I am having monte carlo, dwarf hairgrass and Marimo Moss balls.
I have opened out the moss balls and glued them on to the top of half coconuts and they look pretty good! My plan was to grow a monte carlo carpet around these so...

hi after much effort I managed to get my mc going.
struggled with this... :oops:

Wasn't happy with how the last scape was going, there were some fundamental errors in the set-up stage, so here we go again.
Tank- ADA 60P

CO2- DIY set-up with 2kg fire extinguisher. Inline UP Aqua diffuser.

So the summer ended and with it my vacations,
I decided to setup my new tank, and although some problems with the co2 hardware, here it goes.
Im still waiting for some plants to fulfill what i want to do with this aquascape.
Hope you guys enjoy it.
This is my first post to this forum. I was referred to this forum by John from Aquarium Plant Food UK.
I have recently setup my tank ( 26 days old) and all was going well when I noticed my carpet plant (Monte Carlo) and my midground plants (Staurogyne Repens & Lobelia cardinalis...

Tank Size: 40L

Plants: Eleocharis Parvula, Java...
it has been awhile since I have started this project, but as I have been away for more than a month and I have been quite busy lately, I didn't have time for it.
