    Tonys "Mojito's Cove" 200L - 4 week update pics

    Thats very spooky timing Ady - I've just stripped it down this evening, and was just washing the tank out when an email pings in with an alert to your message ! The scape had to fend for itself for most of this year, as my daughters needs have increased as she has gone through her first year of...

    NA 120cm - Asian Dreams-IAPLC # 251

    Hi Iain. I know full well ( as can be seen above - thanks Ady :shh: ) how frustrating BBA can be once it gets hold. When i got it in the tank above, it was about the same circumstances - work got too busy and I didn't keep an eye on things, and let things slip. This seems to be a fairly...

    Hi Antoni, the spraybars were some prototypes, that were going to be sold by John at Aquarium Plant Food UK, I'm not sure if they're available yet. They give a good flow if you have strong enough filtration, and do get all round the tank :) Thanks Aron, theres plenty in there, but with lots of...

    Nah, they soon spread out and hide away! Once the tank has settled in, some of them will move to another tank;) The algae has no chance Ady - it wont even get a look in ! I like the ranunculus, its a really interesting shape, and once it gets going it will fill a tank rapidly ! Its my...

    Tonys "Mojito's Cove" 200L - 4 week update pics

    Unfortunately the spin involves spending many hours a week in here too :lol: Right, an update ... At 38 days things are going well. I had some signs of detritus on the manzanita and rocks, so introduces a cleaning crew ( 50 x amanos, 50 x otos ) which nailed it in a day ! The ranunculus...

    Thanks Paulo. The ranunculus is going well, though it did suffer more melt than anything else in the tank, as it adjusted to submersed life. Ha - well spotted flyga ! I'll be starting up a journal on that one very soon ;) Tony

    Sad to say I cant make Stockport this week - work is just too busy right now :( Having been involved in the New Malden event I would really urge anyone who can get to Stockport to do so. You will be very warmly welcomed, and no doubt be given a little task to do if you want one too, tanks on...
