1ml TPN+ per day
1ml EasyCarbo per day
50% WC when i get a chance
11w Arcpod and 18w LED for 8hrs

Looks great Dan, I do like a nice jungle!
How do the betta's get on, I thought you could only keep male and female in the same tank whilst they spawned, then you had to seperate them again?

Looks superb :)


That is the rule for bett'a joe but he may well be getting away with it becasue of the jungle scape, plenty of room to not come in contact with each other lol :)

Cheers.

Yeah, they get on fine, theres plenty of space to hide etc and he generally sits in the corner building a nest all day and then chooses which one he wants to mate with LOL both the chicks are up for it so happy days Mr Betta! If there is too much aggression i can whip them out, lord knows i have plenty of tanks LOL

Looks great Dan! Are you going to keep it for this year's show, or rip it down and do another?

Nice work brother.
Ive always loved this, im not a jungle massive fan, but this is real nice.

Dans style of planting is cool, which makes this look better than the rest of the jungles out there.

Boh!

The Green Machine will prolly ship to you? Drop them a PM, they do arc pods. The LEDs I have are a bit random, they are from Aqua FX and they change colour :wideyed: I just set them to White and they do the job.
