Wow. What was the time frame between the last two pictures you posted? That's looking great. What is you water temp fluctuating between?Tank Update
I began a Seachem liquid ferts regimen this past week. Growth has taken off. Even though I had been dosing Potassium, Excel, using Equilibrium, and injecting CO2, I was missing the macroferts that now have made new growth quicker than I thought possible.
My main adversary now is the recent spike in temperature, My tank is in the garage and unfortunately, other than aI'm a fan at the water surface, (icepacks haven't worked) I am at the mercy of the weather.
I lost a few shrimp, about 4 Crystal Red and about 5 Red Cherry, some due to the weather and others due to an overdose of iron one day as I started dialing in my dosing amounts...sucks! No fish loss..
Monte Carlo is beginning to carpet, I am really excited to see this fill in completely.View attachment 198818
Very cool. I'm hoping I can have some luck with a low light tank, I really like the planted thick look.14 Days
The temp was ranging between 74-6 and up to 79-80 when I noticed it... I like to keep the tank around 74 but we have had consistent 90-100 degree weather lately.
I have a fan on the tank now and its keeping it around 78.
It took me a while to fully grasp the fert schedule, accumulate all the products, and make sure not to overdose.. I think that in 2-3 months I will have it fully grown in
