Hey bereninga, I should have linked it before in my last thread but I have a journal going for that one right >>here<<

As for flooding, I'm a good month away. The M. Crenata is taking its time to fill in and needs to catch up with the UG which has gone nuts! I'm still trying to figure out what to fill that one bare spot in my rooted area on the right as well.

Day 46 of Dry Start:

Been a while since I've updated this. I've had a bit of an issue with BGA on part of the tank and keep dosing the spots with Hydrogen Peroxide and it seems to be keeping it at bay. The only problem is it's caused a bare spot in my Marsilea Crenata carpet, which has been slow growing to begin with. The UG has almost filled in the entire area I wanted it to, but I just need to wait on the M. Crenata to catch up. I've lost some Pogostemon Helferi unexpectedly, but am waiting to replant when the tank gets flooded and have some other additions for later on. My recent addition was some of the plantlets of Trithuria Sp. BV where I was originally planning on putting Litorella Uniflora. Besides that, it's just been having a few trims to guide the M. Crenata growth, as well as to coax the Ranunculus Inundatus not to spread along with the Ammania sp. 'Bonsai'. That said, less yammering on my part and more pics!



(imgur just died on me so I'll load more pics later)

Hey now! That UG is looking very full and looks to have taken off very quickly. Wow, so much has changed so quickly. Almost there. How long is the dry start going to go?

I plan on keeping up with the dry start until the M. Crenata is more full. I'm thinking it might be another 50 days or so from the looks of it...

Here are some other pics from yesterday that I couldn't get to due to Imgur going down for a bit:

So we are on day 59 right now. I'm just waiting for the M. Crenata to grow in and then I will flood. Probably another 30 days from my guestimation.

Where did you find the Ranunculus for sale, if I may ask?

Ahh, sorry bud! I've been running around this new year with so much going on that I neglected this thread. Tank is still going and I've got a TON of Utricularia Gramnifolia. It's actually becoming somewhat of an invasive carpet that needs to be tamed almost daily for stray runners. The tank is still in a dry start 130 days in! It's got a few new plants in there which I will save for a night I can have some time to whip out the trusty DSLR. I've actually flooded Inspire a bit earlier as I wanted a tank again. I couldn't wait for the E. Belem to catch up, so I made the plunge.

To be honest I can't exactly remember. If you're local I could give up a few nodes.

Oh, too much UG? I might be interested in some if you have extras! I also still didn't flood my 1.5 Mr. Aqua. Dry starts are actually pretty fun! They're so much less stressful.

I've got a bunch in my growout, bunch in this tank and a bunch that is in different containers as experiments of growth with certain substrates. I do find them to still be stressful in different ways. It's a ton easier to tear into them without messing up the entire tank, but you get the itch to fill fairly often.

Just to show the tank is still kicking, here you go 131 days into the dry start:
