It went bad. I went one day where I was unable to do a water change and the water turned sewer yellow and smelled rancid by the next day. And my blyxa japonica melted. So I tore it down and put in gravel for now but tomorrow I'm tearing it down yet again and laying down a layer of Fluorite capped with gravel. I just finished doing my 5g like that and so far I'm pretty happy. The 5g is a bit cloudy but nowhere near as bad as when I had the Amazonia in the 3g. I returned the rest of that; the LFS was so nice, they gave me full store credit. Which I promptly spent on new plants. XD

Sooo, thus ends my experience with ADA Aquasoil, at least for now.

Thanks. At least I got the refund. How is your tank doing? I'm glad OFL is helping you. No one knows more about planted tanks than she does.

You two give me hope in doing my 20g one. Haven't started it yet, just began accumulating the things I will need. Hopefully it will go without any major problems. OFL is awesome and very patient with those like me who don't know squat.

You can do it, Trobar! When I started out with plants, I killed all of them. Even the ones that I was told "you can't kill this." -___-' It just takes some time and research and a great resource like OFL. :D

My tank is okay, I"m still waiting for my new plants to arrive. The snails seem happy enough, but the chemistry is still not ideal to add the neons and Fernando yet

what kind of snails?
I'm still gathering stuff and hope to have things fish ready in couple weeks.

Long story short granddaughter won a goldfish at a carney and it died the next day. That death has lead to a 20g long NPT.....what we do for our kids and such.....

I have pond snails that hitchhiked from my first batch of plants into my tank. I also have Malaysian trumpet snails I ordered online to help aerate the substrate and soil in the tank for me so I don't have to keep poking it.

...and sorry about your goldie. I have a carnival goldie that is 13 years old

Trobar, That's a pretty impressive leap all right. But your fish are lucky you care so much.

And on a side note: I'm so jealous you have two orange cats. All mine are varying shades of black, gray, and brown. It's like looking at a black and white movie.

Aurasoulful, when you order snails from plantedaquarium.com, do you have to order five snails? And is it $4.99 per snail or for all snails?

Trumpets multiply too but I don't think as fast as pond snails.

Nerite snails can't multiply in freshwater.
