| || | Update on my tank
So here I am a cpl weeks later....
Everything is still ALIVE, LOL!!!
The "stock" lighting I am still using is adequate, but the only plant that is showing new growth is the sword that is at the very east end of the tank, that actually gets a little sunlight through the kitchen window in the morning, (tank is right by doorway to kitchen) As soon as hubby builds my new tank stand & hood, we are going to DIY a new lighting system. Still using the Flourish & have added root tabs once.
The pineapple plant however, is starting to fall apart. Not by any fault of its own, but due to my little Opaline Gourami eating it!!! I've had to clip several stalks off that he ate all the way down to the core of the leaf. I am probably going to have to pull this poor plant soon.
I am fixing to finally order a few more plants soon as I am done on the board!
