My buce package got/going DESTROYED by customs. It was safeguarded and prompted for a call. I called and no phytosanitary cert, so they're destroyed. What a waste of precious plants. Reshipment will be 2 weeks latest, so I'll have to get by without.
With the new amazonia, i expected a lot more algae especially with my plant mass and plant types. There's no real hogs in there.
1. stable co2/stable lighting, both on timers, i think this is one of major breakthroughs i had
2. water change every 3 days as suggested
3. good co2, stable count, same, so no fluctuations, and its pretty darn high as I'm gassing out mollies, down to 2 from about 20. Fish heaven is where they are at they've suffered enough. Sorry mollies
4. Mollies, bio control
so I got some diatoms, and some bba, bba was left over from the transition, but its not going away either, i'm not seeing new pop out though.
I cannot stress enough the importance of good co2 for this plant. Without co2, my S grade would melt in 2 days I've been told, and I believe it. Belem and co will last longer. But if you want this plant to thrive and flourish good co2 levels are best.
The soil does the rest, amazonia is growing things maybe twice the speed of africana. Growth is highly noticeable.
