    Tips for emmersed growth?

    Hey guys, a wee while ago I cut back and planted replanted the cutoffs of a bunch of rotala rotundifolia from my main tank into my smaller shallow tank, and it’s doing great. My main hope was that because it’s a shallow tank, that the rotala will grow out of the water and have some great emerges...

    One month on!

    Yeah that was one thing I was worried about - the tank is small enough and if I keep it half full like it currently is it would get overstocked pretty quickly. Livebearers would be an issue for that if i got some males too. And I wouldn’t want to be constantly trying to sell the Juvis, or use...

    One month on!

    that’s me officially broken down my scape and starting something new. Was getting far too overgrown and becoming more n move heavily stocked as my cories bred. The cories and rasbora have now been moved to my big 50gal tank and are much happier. (The rasbora just used to stay in the same place...

    Flow rate query

    Aww awesome hah! That was exactly it - that being blasted from one side to the other. I was like oh god it that too much for them? But then they consciously go back and do it again 😂 I do feel it’s probably too much for Pearl gourami though which I had planned to add aswell.

    Hey guys, moved my peppered cories to their new larger tank as the first inhabitants. They’re glass surfing a lot which I’m putting down to it being a new space for them and they now have a lot more of it compared to their previous shallow tank. But I’m just alittle concerned the flows abit much...

    New 180 long setup!

    Hardscape officially finished for my new 180 litre long tank. 40L of soil, 18kg of rock, 6 big pieces of river wood and 5l riverbed sand and gravel. Finally filled the tank and hooked up my APS 1400 external filter. The flow rate does look pretty quick to me but hopefully it should be ok for...

    182L stocking!

    No that’s perfect thanks, I just wanted to clarify if you meant both, or one or the other. Tbh I totally get what you mean. Think maybe I get abit too number focused sometimes because I am relatively new to the hobby and don’t want to make any colossal errors haha. But what my stocking currently...
