Running 2x eheim 450 pros.
But eheim 2217 x2 would work just as well and not be as expensive...

Stay tuned...

Love the simplicity of this and very jealous of your HC carpet! Fully appreciate the cabinet OCD as well, mine isn't bad but I need to up my game!

Fingers crossed my 3rd attempt at growing HC gives me half the success you have

I've read that tonkinensis periodically sheds it's leaves when submersed.

Could you share how long you grew/are growing it for and what your experience is?

My Tonkinensis has been in the tank from the start. Tips of the leaves come off from time to time but no issue.
Wonderful plant to keep with minimal maintenance.

Just sensitive to liquid carbon when dosed in large amounts.

Responds well to trimming and bounces back beautifully.

That's good to hear. (Now I know its suitable long term I'm going to bite the bullet and buy an invitro pot.)

Looking forward to your new scape (I'm subscribed), and I hope you keep a spot for the tonkinensis :p

So the rescape took place about 2 weeks ago...


This was before the tear down...

Halfway through the process of planting we had a power failure. had to do the rest with a torch...
Planted the UG inside the stump that I filled up with soil
