but the HC doesn't look too happy...

Could you be burning it with the Excel? Would it be best to allow it to root in a little?

I actually have no idea, but I have heard that Excel can be harsh on delicate plants, if they've not settled in properly...

Whats wrong with that?? Plants need time to settle into a new environment before being fertilised, just like pe-oples...

Ain't gonna edit it, now. Don't want that stupid footnote on my post!! wallbash.gif

Great tank :applaud: I must have been Japanese in previous life, I love the stuff Amano came up with!!!

By the way I am assuming the stand that has all your bits and pieces is a ADA stand. Is that correct? I need something like that to keep all my bits and pieces together. I keep loosing things!!!

Update after trimming... I wanted to trim it like a triangular mound shape because of the different stem plant growth rate, still need sometime to work out how tall should I trim for each of the type to create the shape I want.

Let me just be the first to say this... Stunning tank again, Kitz! You really have a handle on this planted tank thing. Really love your work, always a pleasure to view your tanks.

Looking forward to more updates :)

Got to love that rock what is the yellow on it algae/moss??? and is that quartz??? (white bits) I like the look of the glass co2 gear left in for photos also. So the plan is to have the rotala peak behind the rock ??? Nice set up :)

Very nice. The plants looks so stunningly healthy. I reckon higher on the back left would look nice. So the visual triangle is highest at the back left and comes down diagonally to the front right corner.
