Plants look in good health and your shrimp population is booming.....surprised those rams haven’t been ‘chucking them on the Barbie’
Shame about the gourami
Anyway, scape is looking sharp and those stems should come back even better after the trim and hold the shape, look forward to seeing it in a few weeks.
Thanks guys! I'm really looking forward to the next couple of weeks. Been concentrating on trying to grow fairly healthy rotala before i begin to start shaping the background. I really like seeing more of the wood so from now on going to try keep the rotala trimmed, will also help with the h'ra as it gets shadowed easily by faster growers.Coming along so nicely and those plants are looking good and healthy. I really like the post-trim look, the branches hit the spot for me.
Can't believe how many shrimp you have, must be a happy home you've created!
Thanks! I assume most, if not all are male now that everyone has properly coloured up. There could be a few females that are a lot paler and dull, but then again they could be less dominant males.Really nice tank, those red nose fish are nice, did you get just males
I'm pretty sure my rotala get plenty of light as my substrate is banked up very high at the back and sides, nearly reaches halfway up the tank at the highest point.Adding more micros won’t help unfortunately.
‘you’ll need more light and low no3.
what rotala sp is that?
here’s some reading from a plant master ;
Thanks i realised earlier that it was mainly a FE deficiency as i've been lowering my NO3 monthly, but can't go back and put in an edit because it was a stupid statement!Hi Sammy
Nice scape....check your local municipal water supplier for Nitrate levels!
I will be surprised if its not around 40ppm to 50ppm
Really? That's awesome! Tanks ticking along nicely, will post an update soon, coming up to 6.5 month mark.You even got a like by Filipe himself, awesome hows the tank going?
