May I ask what the large wavy leaf plant on the far left side is?
Great looking plant.

jimbooo said:... i am starting to think tanks will eventually reach a balance and sort themselves out we can only guide it in the right direction. this 450 for example was going through an algae stage period. by chucking in loads of ferts etc all i was doing was feeding it (sorry tom barr etc i have rather fallen off the wagon of late). leave well alone and just change water and then add small amounts of liquid ferts far less than EI doses and it gradually turns the corner.
any one want 3 tonnes of dry powders?!? i am sticking to TPN+ and flourish from now on and will only use the powder if i see obvious deficiencies which so far i have not.
