Slow going this DSM the hair grass is growing well but slow and i'm starting to get a bit of melt on the monte carlo. Maybe too wet, too cold, ammonia burn, who knows. I might flood an drain the tank tomorrow to see if it helps.

The monte carlo is looking a bit sorry for its self, I don't think it likes this dry start but the hair grass is growing well, I've flooded it and added co2 via a 700l/h powerhead, result, bubbles everywhere. I should be adding a ehiem 2217 filter tomorrow. I've also added the unknown crypt that dan gave me, just need to find a plant for the top of the hill now.

30mm to spare but you've got to put the top in first and i have to put my head in to see the gauges.
Monte carlo not doing good, it didnt like the DSM and it likes been wet even less.
Our lass didnt help by turning all three lights on when she went to work on sunday, 12hours, ouch! monte carlo melted so its all on timers now. I'll add pics when the lights come on.

Since the adding filters, timers, decent co2 I've been hoovering out the dead bits from the monte carlo and whats left seems to be getting greener, fingers crossed it will bounce back and start to fill in.
I was going to run this low tech after the transition but I've changed my mind, now i'm thinking high tech. Dans given me some glosso, which I'm going to put in front of the wood and possibly some pogostemon erectus behind the crypts and some proserpinaca palustris "cuba" behind that. What do you guys think?
