I see the Red Betta in there, I thought he was among the list of fish that died? :?
Many thanks Jay, I will be heading down the LFS this weekend to get some new stem plants for the tank, need to work on that right hand side now and let the L. Aromatica fill in the left.jay said:Must say since the 'disaster' this tank has never looked better. Something about it now really looks good, maybe the moss wall not being so 'thick'?
The foreground mix of glosso/downoi and blyxa is beautiful.
Hi Fred, I have been changing the white filter pad in the internal every week (brought a 100 on ebay for pocket money), and squeeze two of the 4 larger sponges (don't have any nitrate or carbon sponges all normal, two fine and two normal) in a bucket every couple of weeks, the external I clean it in a bucket once a month or every 6 weeks.Fred Dulley said:Hey Paulo, I was wondering how often you clean (not a 100% clean ofcourse) both your filters? I think I recall you mentioning that you cleaned the internal every week? (damn hard to get into in my case, all sorts of cables in the way). How often do you clean the external too?
Thanks mate. The reason I ask is because I feel I might be slacking and the debris in the filters is leaching ammonia causing algae and limiting plant growth.
Thanks John, the fissedens came from JamesC so not sure where it originated from.john starkey said:Hi ld,as always the setup looks great,i love the fisedens moss is it from tropica ?,regards john.
