Many thanks I have taken some cuttings for my low tech tank but very little, I do trim off leaves once a month, older leaves that develop algae, I would say about 10-20 at a time from both the bolbitis and fern. I am very lazy when it comes to trimming and let things get possibly too big! Let's see how long I keep this going, but tank is long term, no plans on rescaping anytime soon!Looks amazing. Would you say that is 1 years growth for the bolbitis heudelotii and microsorum narrow? Or would it be much bigger if not for trimmings? I ask since I just planted these two species but have no idea how long I will need to wait for them to start to get massive.
Many thanks, yeah the Buces taking over, they need a good trim, I have trimmed one section to see how it recovers since I have not trimmed Buces before. Then I will take the scissors to the rest soonBeautiful top down view Paulo
Growth has hidden the hardscape, it’s amazing how the stones are completely covering the rocks now.
Have a look at this post:Would it be possible for you to let me know where you bought your reactor from and its approximate dimensions please?
Just wondering if you're still using this ei ratio and having success with it?Many thanks
First time at 5 weeks, not every 3-4 weeks.
Trimmed it pretty low and just replanted the trimmings in the middle of the exiting stems, making it fuller.
Although stems don't like me, they are OK but not as lush as I would like them, I think there is a lack of flow at the back of the tank, I have tried adjusting the filter flow around the tank, but might need some help at the back getting some flow between the stems. Time will tell.
This is my current formula, I have increased doses from 50ml per day to 60ml, might increase it to 70ml soon as the plant mass grows.

My major issue has been CO2, that as always been an issue for me, I think I am almost there now, been very slowing increasing it every 3-4 days to make sure the fish are OK. It's taking its time but at least I won't gas the fish!
Ask as many as you want, that's why I do the journals learn and share ups and downs!
