Thanks, being a shallow tank i wanted to give it another dimension above the water level, will be seeing if the submerged plants will grow out of the water too.Looks great, I love all the emersed stuff it’s very effective. Also, what the bigger unusual looking yellow fish?
"Herb Robert" Geranium robertianum. It often grows in <"shady places, where there isn't much soil">.Any plant gurus out there that have an id for me ? It is planted in a way as it is not in direct contact with the water but would be wise to know what it is.
I will post in plant id too
Have got more plants coming, I have a lot of floating plants over the back behind the stump, the algae seems to be the green spot on the slow growing broad leaf plants and some string algae, regarding fertilizer I am currently using flora grow liquid fertilizer 80ml weekly and adding some extra flourish nitrogen as when I did a quick test my nitrate was undetectable I also removed some of my emersed plants as I think they were stripping the water of nutrients.Hi
I will personally try to increase plant mass first before going the CO2 route.The tank is relatively new and not very densely planted. Its early days yet and you haven't really given it a chance. Some floating plants should be very beneficial in your case.
What ferts are you dosing and how much?
What algae you can see?
Also not sure how your filter outflows facing each other will be working with CO2 distribution you may have to rearrange them if you go that route.
Up and down, still struggling with algae on edges of slow growing plant leaves, but all plants have started growing well, you can see that have quite a bit of emersed growth from plants that are rooted in the substrate, my fern experiment seems to have settled and is growing well too. To combat the algae I have stopped dosing the water column and increased root tabs, adjusted the lighting intensity and now plants are growing across water surface this has diffused the amount of light too. We have guppy babies coming out of our ears in the small tank on the left, and my blue acara have laid eggs so hopefully some acara fry soon too.How is this going Andy?
