You could try Nile Cabbage (Pistia stratiotes), it is <"widely distributed in the Amazon"> and not bothered by high temperature. The updated link for TomC's travelogue page is <"Collecting in Pebas 2008....">I had to take out the plants, too much organic waste due to rotting of plants.
It would honestly stop me sleeping, I'd be up every 1/2 hour to make sure the filter was still working.They cost a fortune to buy
Hi all, You could try Nile Cabbage (Pistia stratiotes), it is <"widely distributed in the Amazon"> and not bothered by high temperature. The updated link for TomC's travelogue page is <"Collecting in Pebas 2008....">
They are <"very effective at nutrient removal">. (If the link stops working the paper is: Victor et al. (2016) "Phytoremediation of wastewater toxicity using water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) and water lettuce (Pistia stratiotes)" International Journal of Phytoremediation 18)
The worry I would have is that if you don't have any plants you are reliant on the filter for nitrification and that becomes a single point of failure.It would honestly stop me sleeping, I'd be up every 1/2 hour to make sure the filter was still working.
You can re-arrange this into a sentence, but if anything went wrong "wife", "remove", "wear", "t*sticles as earrings" comes to mind.
Looking forward to seeing the photos.I have discus one tank is a 75g that is heavily planted with CO2 that is home to 7 discus, it is in my office I will post a picture later.
Looking forward to seeing the photos.
I have other high tech tanks, but without a pH controlled co2 system, not sure I would be brave enough. I once gassed a school of fish in my EA 600, I would be devastated if same happens to my discus.
If you get some more wood and Anubias, you could swap them over regularly so you always have nice plants in he Discus tank and spares being cleaned.I put the anubias in the nano shrimp tank, you cannot believe they are the same plants, in three days, they are now spotless.
Love that tank mate!Just realised the first pic is before a rescape
