    If you get a manzanita, go on aquabid and look at the mosses category for fissidens fontanus. Not quite a moss but a really pretty plant that makes a good carpet.

    plantedaquarium is really nice. The plants are always green and well packaged. I think you'll be happy if you order from them.

    I have the rotala which is supposed to be somewhat reddish. The hygrophila corymbosa is supposed to be red under high light. Before the great snail invasion, a lot of the leaves were reddish. I have something that I think may be ludwiga repens or natans. Not sure, it was just labeled "assorted stem plant" at the LFS. It's reddish. When I started out the tank was densely planted but now it's more likely moderately planted. Everything is stem but the three crypt parvas and an amazon sword that is unhappy with the sand. Oh yeah. And I just tossed a forgotten moss ball in there.

    If it's just cyanobacteria that you're dealing with, you might consider UV sterilization. There's a filter by TrueAqua that has UV light in it. I'll PM you the link.

    Yeah, erythromycin. So you can get either API Erythromycin or Mardel Maracyn and get the same product.

    I can't find dwarf sag yet. Still looking. The crypts might have an iron deficiency, the leaves are turning yellow. I put iron in last week. I don't have an iron testing kit but the Seachem bottle said to keep the iron level at 0.10mgl. Do you think I need to add iron every week?

    Awesome! I cycled my 90 gallon in a day by cloning and using plants.

    Supposedly erythromycin is safe for bacteria. I really really want a foreground plant that forms some kind of carpet but the dwarf loaches uproot things. The best I can do is crypt parva and it doesn't like the fact that I don't have many nutrients in the soil. -___- I'm afraid to put root tabs in because I don't want the loaches to burrow into them.

    Very nice.
    "Test tube cleaner" or anything similar. You will need to think of a way to extend it though. Buy a used canister?

    Yeah, Maracyn I is basically erythromycin which is a pretty mild antibiotic. I know flowerslegacy on here has used it to combat cyanobacteria with success and it didn't harm her plants.

    Was the ammonia high because of the new substrate?
