Foxpuppets planted tank

Recommended Posts

Foxpuppet

After a 7 months hiatus living at our house during renovations I gave the planted tank a good going over before moving it back into its position in the house. (It's been under drop sheets for a few months and was coated in bga on the glass.

Good news is most of the plants were plugging away even with only one functional flouro tube out of 4.

Co2 is now back up and running too and I'm already seeing new growth. I lost a few erios which is upsetting but one has survived and hopefully in a few months will be up to dividing.

Yeah that's my last one. I've culled it heavily. From a $25 Vesuvius plant I bought a few years ago and sold many plants and runners from it since then.

The Crinum is doing well with three pups on the go.

Nice looking tank, now that it's uncovered and all running it should be good in no time.

On the home page there is now a classifieds tab where you can list bss items! If you are using mobile, you may need to scroll to bottom of screen and select 'use full version'.

In Tapatalk, to find the new Classifieds section, I used the following steps.

Go to Forum, then to Classifieds, then to For Sale. The first thread by Nogi is about the new Classifieds Area, there is a link in here, when you press the link it will open a full page view within tapatalk which includes the new Classifieds tab. You may need to log in to this full view site again though.

Hope this helps! Sorry to hijack, but once I know you have found the section, we can tidy up your thread and move this tapatalk section to a new thread.

Let me know if it works for you mate! Cheers

      As jayc has mention, do check if you are allowed to import them into your country, I think Australia is ok as long as you applied for the paper work to import them, but do check first. But this option are for those who are after good quality shrimp with a guaranteed of pure bloodline. You can contact them through this email, they accept Paypal with a addition 7.5% on top, their Paypal account email is different, but email them first for relevant detail as they may differ from mine.  YU CRS CENTER CORP. <contact@yu-crscenter.com>   For me they cost with shipping and Paypal fee, its still cheaper them in Hong Kong. I will have to delay this purchase, ADA and the CALs Black Earth Premium substrate are limited now, most places does not have stock, and no delivery date.

      See, and I thought you meant weak solutions were just as susceptible.  So I should pre-mix my 7 gallon tank when I get the RO water and it will last the 4 weeks or so that I use it to change water just fine.  That's what I was after.  Apparently the Salty Bee guys think the same.  Makes sense.
    • jayc
      I was talking about letting pure RO water sit around for too long unused.  Try not to do it.
      RO water that has been remineralised is different.

      Oops did I mix them around?   <edit> - I did mix the names around. Fix it now in my post above.

      Ok then. Will add more plants to try and reduce nitrates.  Thanks Simon and JayC for the pointers and hints. I think the Dino Spit is the Glutaraldehyde and the Dino Pee has the macro and micronutrients. I will leave off the Glutaraldehyde and reduce the dose of the Pee to one third. I am pretty careful with the dosing.  Good news is that there are at least two RCS females still in the tank and looking well. Maybe they went and hid and moulded after the big water change? The surviving  DAE are all looking well.  Anyway will take all your advice on board and do smaller water changes and work out a dripper system.
