vicenza planted journal

Post by MarcG on 21/11/2011, 16:07

Hello.

As some of you know im slowly setting up my planted tank for dwarf channa (snakeheads) so I thought it would be a good idea to start a journal of my progress. I have a bare tank as for now and just got some dennerle deponitmix pro for planting substrate ( I know we talked about cheap options but a friend of mine gave me some for the same price as the cheaper ones :welcome: ). Im picking up some black gravel tomorrow to cap it. Anyway stay tuned for updates I will add photos but they will be every weekend as thats when I have access to a comp as im on my phone now.

Marc :welcome:

Got my plants in but when putting water in seemed to make a silly mistake by stiring some of the plant substrate up. Got a cloudy tank. I was thinking plenty water changes to get rid? What you think?

the filter should clear it but a water change
wouldn't do any harm if you could fill one
of your filter compartments with floss it will clear
over night

Forgot to tell you. Got my diy co2 up and runing also. Used a cigarette filter as a difuser. Bubbles are tiny. Works well.
