| | Never had to prune before! Yay!
We've finally gotten our planted tank up and running.
46 gallon bowfront
3.5 bags of Flourite substrate
30 ppm pressurized CO2
Fertilizing using EI macros and micros from Rex Grigg
T-4 lighting with 2 39 watt 6700 K bulbs running 8 hours and 2 39 watt 10000 K bulbs running 3 hours in the middle of the day.
2 Pineapple Swords
10 neon tetras
Narrow Leaf Temple
A tall Anubis with large, long leaves
and a bunch plant that has green on top and red underneath leaves, leaves about .5 inches long and wide
Couple of onion plants
So far everything is happy, green (or red) and growing! First time we've ever had to consider pruning!! Happy happy. I was told that the bunch plants should be trimmed from the bottom? Do I need to dig up all my bunch plants to cut the bottoms off, wouldn't that damage root development? So far the Cabomba is the only one that is getting ready to reach the top of the water so I know we need to do something soon. Can I trim the tops?
