I have not posted updates in a while and thought I would share the progress and explain my madness.
New pics taken this evening. I really need to buy some tools so I can trim this mess before I end up with a tank full of plants.
I added a Manzanita twig with moss on the 21st and threw in this other twig that the shrimp seem to enjoy sitting on and blowing in the breeze. Go figure. I am making an attempt at a time lapse to show some of the progress.
Added stump and black background, floating some SWT in the tank but it will die soon
Added moss wall
Dwarf Baby Tears are beginning to take off
Cambomba on right and another plant in the middle added
Celestial Peal Danios added
Pigmy Chain Sword on left added, middle plant is going crazy
Ditched the stock Finnex light replacing with an LED lamp
Dwarf Baby Tears own the place
Added small twig with moss to break up that right side and Pennywort??
Plant in the middle is now as crazy as the Dwarf Baby Tears
Gaaaah I need tools so I can trim this little shop of horrors!
You can see the moss wall is starting to fill in slowly, it is not dead or brown so I will take slowly over that
Photo period is nine hours of the LED lamp, using the Pfertz once weekly. I had a brown diatom attack a couple of weeks ago prompting me to tear down the canister and clean the tubing and pipes plus a major water change. I think it was the background light from the blinds being open too much. Dunno though, its not as bad now so I will live with it. Still get some of it but not nearly as bad and can be cleaned off easily. Not sure if it is due to the dosing or not.
