    My first Layout "Two Tribes" updated 29/4

    :thumbdown: :( Co2 dumped on me yesterday (Friday), fine thing to come home from work to. Quite a few fatalities as a consequence. It is very disheartening, makes me feel I am really getting nowhere with this. What is extremely annoying is that I did a check on the cylinder the day before...

    Re: My first Layout Through discussion with Clive in the recommended ppm thread I upped my dosing of micros. I did go against Clive's suggestion :shh: with regards to dumping the Chelated iron altogether, but, only because my Amazon was showing yellowing in the leaves :) 14/4/2010 Chelated...

    Re: My first Layout One of the biggest issues I had with the first layout was height. I knew essentially I would be facing the same problem, so I looked to find a way around it. Research informed me of "egg crate", more research informed me there was sweet bugger all chance of finding any...

    Re: My first Layout Hey Everyone, I have been debating for a while about when to do an update on this and was going to wait for a little longer, but then that would be really defeating the purpose of a journal so here we go.

    George's 120cm - Nature's Reflection v2

    The tanks looks great and the vid was cool George. Some good information too on your cleaning regime, it is interesting to hear what others do. It would be nice to one day achieve similar results in such a time frame. I have a question about water and clarity, how much of the "gin clear"...

    George's 120cm - Nature's Reflection v2

    Well that all makes sense, it was just something I didn't recall reading before. I did notice the inlets/outlets, wondering though George, whether you think there would be any merit in extending the outlet so it goes further down into the tank finishing about the same height as your diffuser...

    George's 120cm - Nature's Reflection v2

    Looks great George, :thumbup: Can I ask you why two Co2 bottles though? Also your lighting is that two tubes only for 8 hours? With the moss and future plans, possibly just small patches here and there to break up the wood, or some hanging/draping moss, kind of idyllic willow-esque feel, ...

    60 Gallon 60cm cube

    Hi Tom , Thats a really nice scape :thumbup: and whilst you might not like the hygrophila compact from a design aspect, it does look quite striking. Is the compact specific to that particular genus (is that the right term) or will other types of hygrophila respond the same way when trimmed as...

    Re: My first Layout Thanks for the tip Chilled and along with a water change a hiarcut has been had. As for Co2, unfortunately no, it is not out of the question, it is just not in my budget at the moment. Substrate nutrients also no, but with that point I did have a discussion with my LFS about...
