'Worlds End'.Working the cube.

Well, Its only taken me nearly 2 weeks to get around to doing anything to thins cube, so that would make it 4 weeks without a water change. Ive toped up about 3 times in that time.
Im being honest here, there is not a spot of algae on/in this cube, the plant growth hasn't suffered for 4 weeks without dosing either. For me, this shows the true quality and benefits of ADA aqua-soil. Also, the added Tropica aqua-care and TPN+ capsules no doubt helped in this situation. I shall be doing this formula of substrate system again.

Ive knocked the easy carbo on the head, well only because I havent dosed anything at all.

Lights are still set at five hours with 11W of light.

Who says nano's are hard work??? :crazy:





Ill get a post prune shot tomorrow when the water has settled down,

Cheers.

That's a great shot mate. A master working his craft. Your missus take that, or self-timer?

I'm with you on nanos being 'easy' too. A decent substrate allows for so much forgiveness with dosing. I haven't dosed NP for over a month now and growth is just fine.

Keep up the great work pal!

Nice shot pal :thumbup:

I'm with you on the nano dosing. I ran out of Easycarbo about 5 weeks ago and none of my tanks have suffered for it. Whilst away for a week they received nothing at all and i had no ill effects, the HC has done particularly well.

I have Aquasoil and old Tropica stuff underneath that.....

Cheers mate.

It was on self timer, laying on the floor. The nano is sat on the table you famously knocked over with what seemed like litres of red whine on, haha. The stane has gone mate, dont worry. :thumbup:

great pic Greame and glad its going well. Got some algae in mine at the mo but also getting loads of growth as im having to trim the HC and hairgrass twice a week.

Do you find the 11w compact is better than the 20w halogen?

Yeah, the flori is way better than the halogen, even at half the power. You can grow a few things under that halogen, but ive found some stems just dont get the right spectrum of light. HC, moss, hair grass and Rotala all did well under the halogen.

Looks good Graeme, I too agree that nano's are "easy" after you get the basics right.
The five hours of 11w will help tho, I have the same in my nano and fancy increasing it, but don't want to spoil things too much.

Keep up the good work, I'm amazed with the HC.

Small increments is the key.

Shall we sod the EI and do the DC method? haha.

Thanks Ed :D

Heres a full tank shot post trim. Theres some rotala rotundafolia in the back right corner. The Riccardi is doing really well with the withdrawal of the easy carbo.Its like valis, it doesnt mix with carbo. Some may also find Egira densa suffers with carbo.



I might take this to the FOF, but im not sure.

Iv got the 30cm to do next week.

Thanks for reading.

Working the magic, indeed.... :D

I particularly like the subtle and restrained hint of stems (is it Myriophyllum mezianum?) in the background.

I'ver never tried Riccardia. Looks smart.

I was going to take my nano 'jungle' to the FoF too, but don't want to be embarrassed by having it next to this!! :lol:

The Riccardia is a great pant, very terrestrial looking, but hard to get hold of at the moment.

Im disappointed with the overall colour and mono green look to the picture. When viewed by the naked eye, the contrast of green shades is quite obvious, everything stands out more. Yet I take the picture and all the plants look the same shade of green which is dull. Im not sure if its the way im shooting it, exposure, lighting, or camera settings,or its happening in my post edit software. But I know it doesnt look quite like that when viewed in person.

Any ideas what I can do to get the colours etc. to what is like for like :?:

Cheers.
