I'm sure the aquarium is very capable hands
I didn't take your comment to heart, I was just kidding
I don't really see the 'struggles' in any of the pics in the link...all of the shots are beautiful...it would be great to know the time/date progress of the shots in the link..Every 2-3 months? Very nice.
I appreciate the support. Overall I can handle this type of tank. I specifically worked with Tom to ensure plant species that work with lower light levels and a planting that is not too intricate to support.
I have experience with all of the species I have except the coffeefolia which now gives me the most grief, of course
Hopefully over time it will mature as nicely as Jason's did..I am still waiting for the manzy and the ADA to stop leaching. Over the week between water changes, you can see the water turn a nice amber, but would prefer it to be crystal clear to take advantage of the starphire glass all around...
I feel that the tank is doing well overall, despite any issues with a single species of anubias. The fish and shrimp are all healthy, and all other plants are doing quite well. No algae issues to speak of really. A bit of GSA on older anubias leaves is all.
A nice bit of darker green on the manzy is attractive and does not seem to be an issue.
Thanks for following along in two forums...
