What booster and fertz do u use my base is aquasoil with manado gravel both pretty nutrient rich for plants but somethin just isnt working in there. Some plants are doing brilliant others just seem to be rotting. like i say i get my plants unbelivablably cheap so i dont mind replacing the ones that dont do so well with the ones that do.. Problem is i bought 122 plants in bulk which came well packaged with a list of all i bought but i dont know which is which in most cases.. Have to do some googling i think lol

Have u got a pic of ur tank? What set up have u got? Im thinking of setting up a diy co2 system but nervous about gettin bps correct and not causing ph problems in my tank

I've been using this fertilizer You put a cap full of booster in a day seems to be doing a pretty good job but I'm sure CO2 would be better

You made an excellent selection. My eye is drawn to the wood.

Thanks for all your comments, still havent managed to get co2 or another row of t5s so with 2x54w t5s and 2x 36w t8s i have alot of plants not doing so well but for £19.99 for 122 plants ill just buy some more when i can afford my upgrades might get the 200 plant deal for a bit more.

Finally got some co2, now just hope my plants bounce back.. Thinking of starting over with the 200 plant collection but ill probably wait for the diatoms to settle down. I dont know what im gonna do about algae etc with loaches and an african leaf fish i cant have shrimp or snails, algae eaters will make a meal of my plants.... im thinking of setting up my 10g for feeder/cleaner shrimp which will most definatley get ate but if i can get them breeding i might have a fighting chance in getting a colony together... Im stumped the brown diatoms have destroyed how good my tank was looking
