Thanks, let me know when you decide to give glosso a go and I will send you some, don't buy it.Superman said:Gone all green with envy. Looks fab. Think I might turn to glosso after a month or so.
Thanks, yes I know about the corries, have had a few critics because of that, nothing I can do about it at the moment, they are always on top of it so must like it.tko187 said:DAMN That looks so good i feel like eating it!!!
How do your corys like the glosso?? just wondering cos i heard they like sand?
Thanks, algea problems usually too much light and low ferts/CO2, or just bad circulation in the tank, send me some more info and maybe we can get to the bottom of that.swackett said:LD,
I love this tank, it's kind of what I'd like mine to look like but on a smaller scale (although having a few algae problems right now with mine).
Its a secret no really, just some carefull planting at the back, they are not planted in the substrate, just floating in mid "air" and the roots hold on to the root and leaves of the front ones and so forth to give that impression of growth, works nice and you can't really tell how its planted unless you really stare very close at it.aaronnorth said:How do you get the blyxia so high?
Many thankssaintly said:nice LD
Many thanks Johnjohn starkey said:Hi LD,i love it mate absolutley great the L,Aromatica looks brill its a plant i would like to try, everything looks so green and healthy great work ,regards john
Thanks George, i know what you mean since you have mentioned it a couple of times before and I am now going to work on that, I have a lot of anubias behind the L. Aromatica which I am going to swap around now and see the effect it creates, also have a piece of bogwood that I am going to remove which is behind the L. Aromatica since its been hidden ever since the tank was created lol and also need to tidy up the right hand side, its getting a bit "messy" and I am starting not like the look of it, also try to bring the hardscape out a little its getting hidden again lolGeorge Farmer said:Very nice mate, but I can't help thinking it would still benefit from some midground transition from the glosso to the stems at the centre and left. Field in front of wall syndrome (FFWS). More hardscape, Anubias or crypts, or smaller stems perhaps?
Call me picky, but this tank deserves such attention. It's got the potential to go from very nice to great...
Thanks, from planting to taking hold pretty nicely took about 4 weeks, some say it shouldn't have taken this long but thats how long it too in my tank, and now just grows like mad, I will be trimming it this weekend, let me know if you still want some.Spider Pig said:Looking good there. How long did it take for the glosso to root in the gravel and start spreading? Great to see this tank as there are a couple of nice bushy plants I would like to try out once my tanks a bit more settled

I also have a couple of corries that kept digging it up, just had to replant it everyday until it took hold, maybe the reason it took mine 4 weeks to get settled in and start growing properly. Just make sure the glosso is under the light, if there are plants covering it, it won't grow properly and star shooting upwards.Spider Pig said:Thanks for the offer, but I'll just see how my current patch is going. Has been planted for 2 weeks now and some of it looks like it's taking but hard to be sure. Tried to plant some more in the open but alot of it just got pulled up by the corries. Guess I'll just be patient. Need to tweak the set up a bit too as algae taking hold.
What about the moss, how long did that take? Mine seems to be getting brown and doesn't seem to be growing particularly well, but may just be early days. Patience...
Yeah thought it would be a shock lol was to me too when I saw all the work I had ahead!JAmesM said:Holy crap, I wasn't expecting that! How's she looking today LD?
Congrats on your promotion too btw
Thanks, I will let things clear and then give an update post at the weekend with some new photos.Ejack said:Talk about suprised
But heh, even the 'replanted' look you got going on atm. it still looks very nice
Can't wait to see it settle and for you to shoot some update snaps LD
Cheers, at least 5 hours work is not more, but it had to be done, first time I seen my gravel in 6 months! lolSuperman said:Sorry you had to do all that work.
Still looks fab!
