Very nice aquascape you got going! I have one suggestion however--add another rock. It would balance out much nicer. Things look best when kept in odd numbers.

I purchased 3 stones on a trip to HK. I was only allowed to bring 2 of them home by customs. Long story. Its also next to impossible to find similar stones US - believe me I tried.

That had to be disappointing!

Its been a while since the update. During that time, thanks to some members of this forum, I was bitten by the Eriocaulon bug . This compelled me remove the stones and replace them with plants that look like little green sea urchins!

Profile


Semi-top down


This shot contains 5 types (or maybe 4) types of Eriocaulon - sp. Aussie 2, Japan, Thailand, "blood red"(which may not be an erio) and Sulawesi. The Pogostemon helferi preceeded the Erio invasion. I decided to leave that group alone. At this point did not give much though to making a "proper" aquascape. I just put the plants where I had room.


I found this amusing, if you look carefully you see that a group of CRS decided to make the Eriocaulon sp. thailand their spiky fortress.


Group shots of CRS. They seemed to have adjusted well and I have been adding Excel at normal amounts and ~0.5 ml Tropica TPN+ daily.



Syngonanthus sp. but I forgot what type. I like the fact that both these genus of plants don't grow too fast so maintenance is easier.

I don't have a pH measurement. But you can see from the drop checker to the color is light green to slightly yellowish green the pH is probably in the 6.8-6.5 range.

Yes indeed! Those young CRS are very adaptable. Feeding 2-3x a week with Mosura CRS food hopefully that's not too much.
