    You will note that the bright green stems you like and the deeper purples and blue hues of the Buce contrast.


    Something to ponder when designing the layout. Buces do very well in soil.

    I'm getting a lot of buce leaves melting and decaying off and floating. Daily it seems, mostly the buces on glued to the wood. The more exotic ones, compared to the ones in the substrate are doing a lot better. The ones especially closer to the light seem to be doing the worst. I think I have co2 right but I don't dose, but i do use water from the other tank with the fresh amazonia. There isn't much N in africana so i don't think. I have dosed before, I'm on the on's and off's on dosing. There is too much debate. And since what i have left of my s grades are in this tank, i'm very skeptical.

    They are nice, can easily scratch or crack though, they are made of acrylic pieces.


    @hydrophyte


    Maybe think about expanding to where you can fit many plants in one long or wide pot.


    specifically erios seem best in these.

    So apparently I got this algae called Rhizoclonium. Algae fix won't kill it. Work will though. WC, jugs and jugs of 5 gallons


    My rio negro 2006 began to melt. I'm not understanding these S grade syngonanthus. Said to be sensitive to water change, i guess i see it because of the melt, but not really in the sao g.

    My guess as to why the Rhizoclonium. Its only growing in where the mist is hitting directly. I use a atomizer inline and this is my reasoning.

    and then about a few hrs after lights off


    so keep working it, and i can eradicate it, but thats not the root


    root is probably lighting and the mist point positions, lighting was upped 7 hrs from 6, now I set to 5 and 1/2 starting today.
