quick update ... all good in the buce carpet space



Happy with the development here, almost time for the heaters to come out and glass covers to be removed.



This should allow for a redo of the lights and that should reduce the algae.






New growth



Not sure why but I just love these clay trinkets in the tank.

@hoppycalif What was the results of your zeolite substrate experiments? Had some so decided to replace some old ADA.

That was a long time ago! I wasn't pleased with it. The zeolite I had was an ugly greenish white color, and it didn't look good in the tank. There was no improvement in the plants that I could see, and as I recall it had more algae problems than I was used to. That was about 12 years ago, I think.

Thanks for the prompt reply.

Timing sounds about right, well this is in and it needs to stay - well for at least another 7 years

Always good to start with low / no expectations ... makes for great satisfaction. No expectation it will be anywhere as good as ADA.



This stuff is mined in South Africa ... so home "grown", gonna give it a spin - but noted the observation about algae - thanks . As for the color - I am ok with it for now, suspect just like the rocks it will darken over time.
