Gah! Sorry if it seems I'm ignoring your posts! I usually read them and promise to reply later and I WANT to "like" it but the darn like button is missing from this app! D:
Yep HC is dwarf baby tears :D soon you'll become quite the plant expert Jes :3
My terrarium is an actually terrarium. the tank light stand tank is still empty.... >.<
So I got home at 11.30 tonight and what do I do...I restart my neglected 1 gallon tank.
Not sure why I did it... I have a meeting at 9 am tomorrow with our client and tonnns of laundry to be washed.... not to mention a really messy room to clean. but nope, just had to clean out the darn tank.
I might be doing this too early since the weather is still quite warm... but what the heck.... If I get diatoms and bga I'll just restart it again :) I'm so glad sometimes that I don't have a 120g ;)
uh so I pulled the heck out of my Baby tears.... and everything came out... except for the crypt webdtii red and the marsilea quadrifolia :D
I must've rinsed the substrate like 10 times before I replanted...water was still kinda brown by the last rinse. But it's 12am and I really dont need sparkling clean substrate. my crypt might hate me and melt...
Heh banishd the betta. Netted him out while he was still dreaming, he hates me now. Betta abuse in the 1/4 gallon until my plants do some growing again.
And yay, done! Really not trying to scape this time. just want to get some plants growing :P Besides I've run out of driftwood to use for now. Maybe somr manzanita in the future. meh
raised the light so its not as bright as usual (I used a 23w cfl)
*mini update* this morning :3
oops missed your q John >.<
blame jes, her giant post totally obscured yours :P

I have some MGOCPM somewhere lol soo I can use that no problem. Just didn't know the preferred soil.
You keep yours pretty dry you say but the humidity has to keep it some what wet in there through(you must be doing something right! I mean look at your tanks!!)? Do you let your tanks breathe every so often?
So how wet are you suppose to keep one? This is done by spraying/misting the plants and substrate? How often does that have to be done? I know you hardly do it but what's idea without going overboard? Too much is bad right? If the dirt is too soggy it form fungus? Do you gauge the misting off of the looks of the plants? Sorry Ao for all the questions on your thread!!!
3-4 in is good :) i like to slope my substrate just for the sake of being able to see all my plants from the front of the tank. you get more space that way too
I would suggest to mist daily at first. emmersed setups are quite forgiving and you will eventually work out your own misting formula for your own setup :)
I found that for my current selection of plants, that I don't HAVE to air them out. they do just fine without being aired....
Ive never had a really wet substrate... so I dont know much about fungus... technically if you have some fast growing plants in there there shouldnt e a fungi problem. i did get very little bga at first. but it was insignificant and eventually went away. Sent from Petguide.com Free App
