    Jocelyn, Thanks for your tips! The seller also recommended CO2 for Ranunculus as that is what they ran, but it appears to be going fine now. I think the transition from CO2 to a non-CO2 area may have caused some of the initial loss. For now, I will leave it in its current setup with some...

    So a quick update since I didn't make one over the weekend. ThriveS arrived and I have been dosing that daily from another dropper bottle. Unfortunately, it turned out the Crinum rotted from the bulb, so that is no longer in the jar and had to be disposed. Good news... The RRF is making a...

    Live Plant Scaping

    I am still fairly new to aquascaping, but I will tell you my experience with dwarf hairgrass. My DHG melted for the first week or two, but since then it has grown very nice. I am guessing your grass was probably grown emersed and now that it is submersed, the original grass is melting, but it...

    Another discovery in the jar (and unfortunately not positive) - I was rotating the jar around and noticed the bottom of the Crinum has some white stuff on it. Is this possibly fungus or something else? Again, the crinum was fine for the first few weeks ("planted" March 21) but this white stuff...

    I have ordered a bottle of ThriveS and will hopefully receive it on Friday. I will start dosing this and hopefully perk up my calamistratum and see some new growth on the RRF. Hopefully I'll be able to provide a positive update next weekend

    Glad to hear your setup's doing well and even pearling I had some pearling about a month ago when I just had DHG, but no pearling now... So assuming my plants use all the ferts provided by ThriveS, NilocG recommends 1 dose/3 times a week. I may in theory need 3x the recommended dose each...

    Actually, I was just reading "Customer Questions & Answers" on Amazon, and NilocG says each dose adds 1ppm NO3 and to dose 1-3 times a week, so it seems like this may not be enough. Recommendations if it's ok to overdose ThriveS if the plants seem to be using the fertilizers, or to use another...

    Thank you for the comments. ThriveS does have a much higher concentration of NPK than Flourish does, but I am wondering if it is enough still. After dosing Flourish and checking after an hour, my readings still did not improve much. I then did a 30% PWC to bring them up a bit, but this...

    I created 10 mL dropper bottles for each of the above: 30 drops = 1 mL and each of the above doses work out to roughly 0.1 mL/gallon (3 drops), besides Flourish Advance which is slightly more. I was using a pipette but that became tiresome. I was dosing the Flourish Advance because I read it...

    Thanks! I will keep it isolated and make sure it stays OUT of my tank.

    Shrimp Identification

    I think this is an Amano shrimp, but it was in a batch of mixed freshwater shrimp at the store that someone brought in and didn't want. The worker called them ghost shrimp, but with the dots I think otherwise and the shrimp do not have the humpbacks like the other ghost shrimp I've seen.

    Identify Unknown Plant

    This plant snuck in on a red root floater and has grown quite a bit. Any clue what it is? It is currently hanging out on the surface of a separate container after spreading quite a bit weaving around RRF roots. The leaves are under 1/8" diameter, with one side darker than the other...

    Hello, Thanks in advance to any who can read through this LOOOOOONG post New member, but I've been reading the forums for a few months. I started a planted jar which has been going well for a couple months (minus my mini pelia that I just removed), but in the past week the plants seem to be...
