perhaps you have to much lighting and CO2 & nutrients are limiting growth....flygja said:I'm astounded by the growth you're getting with just 54W of lighting. I have almost triple the amount in my 160L and it doesn't seem to grow as well as yours. Even in the earlier pics, the redness of your red plants is mind-boggling. Makes me wonder whats wrong with mine...
Soft water to be honest. Very soft. PH will be around 6 potentially, maybe lower now. I don't test anymore. GH is about 3 if i remember right.SteveUK said:Really nice John! Your blyxa is growing like mine, much more "grass" like than I've seen in other's tanks. The leaves are a lighter green and curl a little compared to how I've seen it elsewhere
Are you in a hard water area? I think my PH is around the high 7's. Not sure on my GH.
I don't wanna hijack this wonderful journal, so I'll probably start up another thread sometimes lateraaronnorth said:perhaps you have to much lighting and CO2 & nutrients are limiting growth....

Bolbitis is going crazy, really happy with it. The moss has also been doing amazing, bulked up really well, so much that I've actually removed a vast amount last week just to keep the flow going around the rest of the plants!lljdma06 said:Hi,
I thought I'd check up on how your Bolbitis is doing? You mentioned you had indirect current. Mine was swaying like nobody's business. It was a huge weed in my tank.
Also, I do see you have a lot of moss. I should move to Scotland.
