Thanks guys! :)

If it helps anyone I am using JBL Manado Substrate, DIY co2 (which I can never keep stable lol) 30% water change every Sunday and dosing with Sera Florena 25ml ( 5 teaspoons) once on a Sunday after water change and the same on a Wednesday.

This is the guide that the bottle gives as it says 5ml for every 20L and mine is 200L so I split it up over the week, but I might drop it a little as it seems an awful lot and it makes my plants go crazy.

Lots of good things said about this make of ferts as well. Also I have seen a lot of people were saying you cant get it in the States but I saw somewhere that a shop you guys have over there sells it now.... Fosters and Smith?

Anyways hope that helps and thanks again for the compliments! :)

Jim

Amazing! you may of already posted this but what are exactly are the tall green sword plants you have in the back left area of the tank, and also the shorter foregrounds plants you have directly in front of them?

The tall stemmed ones are Echinodorus palaefolius var. latifolius

The smaller ones in front of it I got the other day and totally forgot to keep the plant label. I will try and find out for you though.

Thanks for the compliment :)

It might be a variation of this?.....Shinnersia rivularis 'Weiss-Grün', sorry I cant find it, maybe Byron can shed some light?

Very good looking tank! You have done well. What is that grass in the foreground? Did you just plant little bits here and there and it has spread on it's own?

Thankyou Chevy, thought it is far from finished. The grass on the right is normal hairgrass, the one on the left I cannot remember to be honest. I am thinking of taking it up and replacing it with more hairgrass though as it doesnt grow very neatly and it looks very rough and out of place.

Also I am looking for something to go midground, just in front of the large bog wood and the red echin on the right. Can you guys recommend anything or should I just plant there some of what I have in front of the stems on the left...would it look ok repeating the plant like that on the right?
