You can always change out some water. No biggie.

Hholly - Exactly.

Question for anyone with planted tanks that are NOT dirted. I am using Seachem Flourish Tabs, but am wondering if any other supplement is necessary. I am considering dosing with Seachem Flourish Excel, since I have no C02 source and I know Excel will provide this, as well as other nutrients. So what do you think of this plan, to use Seachem Flourish Tabs with Seachem Flourish Excel.

What plants are you planning on growing? I would use comprehensive and excel with the root tabs. What your lighting like?

I have 3 Jungle Vals now. I plan to get 2-3 Small Amazon Sword, 1 Sag, some Java Fern for my driftwood, and possibly a Large Amazon Sword to go with my Jungle Val for the background of my tank. Dosing Seachem Excel and the Comprehensive Formula, along with root tabs sounds like a good plan.

Don't know if I have said this, or said it enough, but thank you to everyone who has helped. I would be lost without you guys. You guys are AWESOME!!

Mumma - what plant is all over your driftwood in the 17g Low Tech tank you have? I think it's on most of your driftwood in a number of your tanks as well. Your Gourami looks really nice, and I love both your pleco's. Also I noticed you used a sponge to ease the water flow for your betta, what is holding the sponge in place?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks
The plant in the 17g is windelov or crested java fern. Super easy to grow and only needs low lighting but can grow under any lights. I have needle leaf java fern in the 8g and normal java fern in the 70g and 10g.
I cut a hole in the side of the sponge and slid it up the intake pipe. Stays put by itself.

Did you have to tie down your java fern to the driftwood?

Yes to begin with. Eventually it attaches itself by the roots. I use cotton thread to tie mine on.
