Here it is at 1 month out. I am still figuring out growing issues, so forgive the lack of actual aquascaping. Hopefully in the next week or two I can start on actually shaping some of the mounds.
The Utricularia seems to be growing out ok. The riccia was doing good until I did a second haircut, now it seems that alot of the riccia is floating out of the net. I might re-tie it down to the rocks. The Marsilea is growing pretty darn fast compared to previous. As you can see, most of the stem plants except the L. aromatica are having the curled growth pattern. Even the Pogostem "K" has warped leaves.
Here's a closeup of the rubin (yeah it's a really bad pic). I did notice after the meeting discussion that the new leaves are actually quite smaller than before.
Maybe it is too low macros? I didn't have a chance to check the NO3 levels today, but I already tossed in an extra 20 ml of Nitrate and Phosphate
I do notice that the riccia is no longer pearling as of the last 10 days....It is strange because there is still probably only 1/2 the plant mass in the tank as before and the growth of P. stellatus and L. cuba was never stunted before. It's puzzling and frustrating that there doesn't seem to be rhyme or reason to dosing IME.
My plan from what's talked about at the meetings:
1) Cut out extra K (already done last water change).
2) Continue dosing extra Magnesium (1 teaspoon of epsom salts with water change).
3) Double my macros (20 ml of a solution of 2tbs Monopotassium phosphate and potassium nitrate in 500ml water).
4) Continue current micros/iron (10ml Flourish, 25ml Flourish iron).
5) Check the CO2 levels with measuring K and checking pH change after degassing a water sample for a day.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated.
