Re: My first planted tank Trigon 190 corner

New pics!!

After a nice discussion on these here forums and playing about with my CO2 and flow i`ve seen a few of my plants pearling now:

I`ve added some crypts behind the wood on the far right, but predictably all the old growth melted within days and the new is only a few inches high so they arn`t visable yet:( small amount of hygro on the left aswell, not sure about the placement yet but will wait and see how it grows (the last stems i tried ended up growing really leggy and looked a mess so they got binned).

Long time without posting due to a promotion at work which ended up with me working a lot of long days to brute force my way thru to make up for my lack of experiance in my new role , subsequently hobbies took a back burner, with me getting my hands burned with the tank due to the co2 running out at the beggining of dec and me not noticing for about 2 weeks !, please welcome to stage BBA :oops:
Then to make matters worse i tried using a 4:1mix of water:easycarbo to nuke the BBA (which it done very succesfully!) but it also nuked 75% of the plants in there aswell , another lesson learned i guess :)

Its taken a few weeks but now everything is back growing again

Full tank shot

Crypts avoided the nuking and the hair grass is growing again after turning to brown mush , java ferns at the back which i had to trim every leaf of due to the nuking just starting to show signs of growing again.

Constructive critisicm on the layout or photography very much welcomed :)

Nice! Green clean and reem :D hahaha

Looking lush, I've never seen an angel fish with dots like that. Looks so odd.

Just found your question chilled, was hard to spot in the monster quote ! All fauna were fine , i put the mix in a spray bottle and sprayed it straight onto the affected areas while the water was low, and prob only added around 20 ml of easy carbo to the tank in all.

Hi Burnley Gaz, I've got the same tank as you. Have you considered upgrading your light unit from the standard issue fluorescent bulbs to LEDs? As LEDs are the future!
