Hahaha indeed, tank has been empty for quite sometime, due to lack of time and also interest , so I thought it's now or never!! Either plant it or get rid of it! So will try the planted first and take it from there!!Two and a half years between first hardscape and the plant list!
That's got to be a record.
It's a smoothie blender!! as someone said in the past! lol
With the pieces I have I did manage to come up with this so far, still needs some work and that is not the final substrate, it will be Tropica soil, just need to get the plant list sorted and make a start, I have everything now, took delivery of a 5Kg CO2 cylinder last week, so just thinking what to use in terms of fertelizers, I was thinking going down the dry salts route, might start with that and see where that goes!

While R rotundifolia can insistently remain green (I didn’t actually believe this until Mark Evans couldn’t get his to show pinks) I think your variants are pretty insistently redIf they turn red, might end up with a bunch of green anyway haha
Hardscape is a couple pages back!
I think you guys are better at this than me - I only lurked for a few months and then had to join to ask why my Java fern was yellow! @alto - you made me LOL at the memory of Mr. Evans killing it with his tanks but bizarrely unable to turn his rotala red!Hi all, You don't have to be a member to read the posts. I lurked here for quite a while before I joined (in 2008).
