    Hello partners!
    My name is Raul, I live in Monterrey, Mx.
    I've been in this hobby for about 6 years, learning something new every day.
    I share with you the projects that I have done throughout this time:

    20645511_10155337272171609_7732844587592379764_o.jpg

    This is my current project, it has 24 days.

    (First Day)

    22136853_10155495703961609_987348869200336563_o.jpg

    I use tap water (kh 14, gh 14)
    I keep it with 2 bubbles per second, 24 hours (I tried 12 hours with solenoid valve but I prefer the results with 24 hours)
    11 hours of photoperiod
    Ph Water - 6.5
    And my fertilized routine is 40-10-25 NPK
    I use potassium nitrate and monopotasic phosphate.
    And I add Flourish for micronutrients.
    (((I am suffering a bit with some varieties of Lythraceae that are showing certain symptoms (deformed leaves) but I will talk about that later ..)))

    I hope i can contribute with some of my knowledge but honestly i come here to learn from you.
    By the way, an apology for my English.

    Nice tanks! The top one especially.

    Be great if you made a journal so we could read and see more.

    Welcome to the board! :)

    Thank You!
    And of course, it seems an excellent idea!

    Thank You!

    Really? I'm glad you've met my city.
    I guess you met the founders of CARAC, Marco Arroyo?




    Thank You!
    Excellent choice hahaha, also my favorite.

    Dios mio, Raul! Wow!

    Beautiful tanks.

    So...you have problems with Lythraceae? ;) Then you are already one of us.

    Please start a journal so we can follow closely.

    Welcome.

    Stunning tanks! You get beautiful coloring out of your purple plants- what lighting do you use?
