Maybe you and another hobbyist can commit to host every other month and it will be a light hearted meet up to talk and swap stories, pics, fish and plants. Like at a park or community center room.

Let's see a pic of the tank with the DHG carpet!!!
I enjoy your novels Autumnsky. It makes me feel like i'm not the only one looking for spare spaces to put in another tank. I almost emptied a sock drawer last week to house another nano tank. I'm a little envious that you are getting you buce to flower. I had hoped that my anubias varieties might eventually flower but no such luck.

I need to find an image hosting site that doesn't make me pay after an initial free period. I'm stingy like that because i prefer my money to be used on useful things like

The community tank with the DHG carpeting is the one with white spot. It usually runs a sump filter which isn't being used right now as it's too hard to keep the high temperatures stable so the water level is lower than i'd like but I'll take some pics and search for an image host. The tank is my attempt at a dutch planted and the carpet space isn't that huge but for once it's actually carpet like rather than odd clumps of sparse vegetation in their death throes. I'm running pretty high light for a tank this tall. The plants are suffering at the moment though since i've stopped ferts and excel with the meds being used. I was actually going to cut back ferts after reading a thread by Caliban that highlights that overuse of trace elements may inhibit nutrient uptake. The ick meds have actually gone part of the way to removing some algae from my suffering anubias which was a slight bonus but a few plants are stagnating. From memory i was also going to create a thread detailing my shrimp experiment that i think you asked me to create.

Alan - Try imgur for an image hosting site. Free, just create an account. If you are on the mobile, there are a few apps to handle uploads and links. Other than creating the account, I really don't use it on a PC.
Yes, I started reducing the micro dosage as well. I'm seeing less algae which may mean the plants are doing better.

Thanks Fresh. I'll give Imgur a go. I was just looking at using a google account. I actually have an old gmail account if i can remember the details. It was last used two PC's ago so the login details aren't coming to mind. I guess it's time to dust off the old camera.

Yes on the shrimp thread! And pic, even though it isn't perfect.

Good info Fresh2O, thanks for sharing that jewel nugget of information!

Alan, feed the plants something!!! Anubias I had a flower when I first got it and one more bloomed not long after that, but I think it was due to the previous keepers lighting, much stronger than mine and possibly CO2 since it was a huge stalk of it.

Alan - The Aquatic HOA is requesting that you trim that lawn and fill the tank to the lower edge of the rim.
I've never attempted any type of grass carpet; it's on the bucket list.
