Very Nice GC

Cheers D, I'm quite happy with it actually, have slightly peeled back the cling wrap just a little to let some air in, soil is nice and moist, so as long as the roots are moist and I give it a light spray each day or two, it should be fine, after a week or two I'll remove the cling wrap all together.

Do it! DOOOOO IT!

Did another bowl this morning but isn't looking too healthy, it's half Glosso, half HC, with a Crypt in the centre, the HC and Crypt weren't looking too flash this morning when I got them in the mail, so will see how they fair over the next couple weeks, have 1 bowl sitting each side of the main tank.

I think he threw them out after a week because he was not happy with how they turned out.

      No problem. Love helping others if I can. Report back in a week or so. You should test TDS every day around the same time, to keep a track of any changes.

      Sounds good Jay. Thanks a lot I appreciate all of you

      It sounds about right for GH6 (6 drops is roughly 120 TDS). Those GH test kits are not the most accurate. And RO water reading of 3 is not unreasonable. I don't know why you would have been reading 240TDS last week and now it's a 100 points lower. I would suggest, not changing water parameter with a water change for a week, then see where it is at. Change if it gets close to 200 (say around 180-190). Let's give the tank some stability by not changing anything for a while.

      I checked my TDS meter and it reads 3 on RO water and today my TDS in my tank is 133. I did a test with API and it took 6 drops so that's around 100 TDS.  I had 2 adolescents die overnight.  Should I only change water when it's over 200 TDS or should i continue with the 10% every week?  Thanks
