*Immensly jealous*
I love your plants! That's incredible. Hopefully I'll get some nice results in the Axolotl tank... (as long as they are tough, don't mind being ripped up now and then, can deal with 1inch of gravel and a weak lightsource.... Hmm. Difficult Lol! Elodea as always)

What is it you grow in there??? It always looks so verdant and lush...

Theres lots of hygro in there, Vals, java moss, xmas moss, moss balls, sprite, dwarf chain swords, java fern, crypts, parrot feathers, baby tears, 4 leaf clover, ricca, radican swords, amazon swords, ozelot swords, melon swords. dwarf sag. and duckweed, thats all I can remember.

Nitrates are high in my water so just top it off replenishes it. I use seachem flourish and excel. That is all I use for ferts.

Nice tank, I fancied some mossballs for my tank, do you need a strong current to keep them round?

All you need to do with moss balls is take them out and roll them in your hands once in awhile and it will help them stay round. They do like a little current. It moves them around the tank and they will position themselves to get better light.

Went to club meeting and auction. Came home with a trashbag full of jungle val for 1.00. Going to split it up between the 2 30's. Got another trio of the Makurdi to send to a friend of mine. Was good today, didn't buy a whole lot for myself.
