Thanks a lot, Matt. Since I cycled the filter in my nano, I think I can start adding livestock rather soon. I've been thinking about dario dario or an apistogramma pair, but not sure. Suggestions are veru welcome!That will look stunning! Really loving this tank, keep us updated!!
Love pencilfish. Aren't they prone to jumping though?Dario darios need for live food is the only thing that has stopped me purchasing previously. I'm a massive dwarf cichlid fan... both are very good choices. Plan ahead to ensure you get fish at all levels in the tank. For example pencil fish are my favourite surface dwellers...
Not sure I'm willing to take the risk. Open tanks has some disadvantages :/Re the pencilfish... I have a closed tank... all I can say is I don't hear much jumping... surface cover will help of course.
Thanks Tim. The brand is Aqua Rebell and the model is OF2 for the outflow and IF2 for the inlet. I bought them via aquasabi. Can't get the suction cups to stick unfortunately and I'm actually thinking of trying out some metal lily pipes in the future.Looking good. Nice sized lily pipes, where did you get them from?
It is unlikely to be nitrogen, but if it is you should get a very quick greening now the tank is flooded.As you can see it became really yellow during the dry start. Possibly due to nitrogen limitation..?
That could be it! I had high light in the beginning, but I lowered it quite a bit the last few weeks before flooding though.
A lot of them look a lot more similar to one another when they are submersed. Also they don't tend to produce capsules and it is usually the combination of <"leaf (microphyll) structure"> and capsule that you need to find the correct scientific name.The difference is between the emersed and submerged moss is striking.
Yes, most indeed do. And i threw about all i could find in the tanks. I still have unidentified moss growing submersed that grows extremely small but in very long strings. At first glance i thought it was hair algae, but than taking it out i could feel the leaf structure like a saw blade. Looking closer its definitively a moss and i have absolute no idea where it originated from.
Yes its absolutely a very intriguing life form..
