Re: my vivarium show nano. rescaped.

I think this is 3rd time lucky! :lol:

Tank 1....grow too quick :twisted:
Tank 2...didn't grow very well :(
Tank 3...running nicely indeed. :D

Here's the latest installment of vivarium showtanks :lol:

6 weeks left, and i should have this done. Dan reminded me it was 6 weeks, as i thought it was just 2 left :oops:

No hardscape to fall over, simple plants, with hyrdacotle to add a bit of height...That's the plan at least.

When we get to vivatium, I'd like to add some guppies.

Pics are, one with flash, one without.

Re: my vivarium show nano. 3rd time lucky!

Lol thats a lot of difference :D Looks nice!

I like particularly the right hand side. It looks almoust complete to me, maybe the eleocharis need some time to establish itself. The left hand side will look nice, I suppose your idea is to create a well shaped plant mass there? With the rotala, is it rotala?

After all I like the diversity of ideas that you have gone through, in this scape :thumbup:

it's glosso :lol: I'll let the glosso towards the back grow up, and pray for the forward bits to crawl. :angelic:

true. I'd like a wall, but not too dense. The tank is just 2 or 3 weeks old and the acicularis was trimmed to the ground, it's grown that much in 3 weeks...kinda slow.

I think it is ok, as you are targeting mature tank in about 6 weeks!

I like it a lot :)

Its calming, haha its the only way I can describe it. I didn't post on Tobi's thread but what is the dosing regime of this little one mate, would really help me out with my own one, do you think an NPKmix would be beneficial with the flowgrow and Spazial N?

Cheers

I'm still trial and error myself, but at the moment, i'm dosing 2 squirts of each. W/C everyday...just because it's easy to do.

Acicularis is looking really nice with the addition of these ferts.

I'm dosing just the 2 at the moment, and if there's any deficiency, I'll firstly, pin it down to po4, which I'll then add.

This whole dosing thing for me, is like learning from scratch, but it's fun.

i'm not sure mate. Glosso always grows like a weed for me. I trapped the smallest bit (mm's) in a moss stone, and it's growing from the smallest of bits.

I need horizontal growth now. :D

Nice glosso mate, polish a horse shoe, find a lucky clover for vivarium 'cause you've got competition :lol:

Best,

That is interesting and worth examing :geek: Most of the cases is the lighting issue, but I do not believe this is the case in your tank.. besides you also mentioned that it has been happening in other tanks too.
Sorry for the off topic, just been a bit of a geek now :lol:

Re: my vivarium show nano. 3rd time lucky!

Thanks mate, ill try 2 of each, I've been doing 1of each at the moment, I may just add 1pump of NPK for the hell of it, surely there wouldn't be a bad effect.

Such a stunning little tank, a proper little piece of art.

Cheers

i might try the same mate, and thanks. It's a simple scape, with an airy feel...just what i wanted.

When i take it to Vivarium, i'm going to bring a back light and blue background for the real effect :thumbup:

I'm not a fan of the 'perfect' glosso look. A tad wild is good with me :D

Cheers George.

The music is by a guy called Ludovico Einaudi. An Italian pianist, classical, but with a firm modern take on it. I love his stuff.

My other 120cm vid featured this guy. :thumbup:
