    You had my vote, great pic of an amazing species! The competition was steep though.

    Just moved the spraybar to the right of the tank and the intake to the left. Tore the big windelov from the wood to seperate it and re tie it. Did some miscellaneous pruning and of course a water change.
    Tried out my new JBL phosphate test, 0.8pmm and tested nitrate at 6ppm (gods those JBL tests are convenient, no more sera for me!) so added a dash of nitrate.

    Now my back aches but the hatchets are really enjoying the change of current which is something I'd never expected to see.

    When your thermometer shows this after 3 days you know you've got an imbalance:



    Part of the problem was flow which was impacted by the big windelov. Since that plant was growing higher and higher and almost into the T5 tubes I decided to take it out and cut it up.



    Big plant after a year isn't it?

    I do have a plant showing a very clear defficiency as well:


    So... daily easycarb and better balancing of my nitrates and phosphates it is.

    Now, layout wise I'm not happy:



    Since I moved the spraybar to the right I had to move the frogbit to the left. Combined with the way the Zenkeri is exploding into growth and I think I need to rebalance this. Not entirely sure how to do that yet.....

    What about trying the spraybar along the back? That's where I have mine.

    Had that very early on. Got huge dead spots at the front.

    Hmmm...I don't get that as I still have the internal as well. Maybe get a tiny powerhead? The small marine ones are quite unintrusive.

    Thought about that as well but even the smallest hydor is still quite a handful. I think I'll leave it like this for now.

    Not a good few days. On friday one of my lambchops was separate from the group and constantly mouthing like there was something stuck. Perhaps the little bugger decided to take on a big shrimp. Sunday morning I thought he wouldn't make it to the night but he did. Now today the colour's back and he's joined the group again and even tried to eat a few bites. So there's hope yet.

    Unfortunately one of my cories has had a scrape with something. Gash in his side and I found him lying on a lotus leaf looking bad. Too lively to catch though but I'm worried. I just popped in a fresh bit of catappa for infection prevention and I'm hoping for the best.

    Sorry to hear of your troubles, hopefully the cory will heal up quickly with no complications...I need to research those catappa leaves, I had no idea they had infection preventive properties, very interesting

    They do and that has been proven in lab tests. For the scientifically inclined, I got the report somewhere. http://www.ebay.com/usr/amy-lim perhaps? Affordable and I like her approach

    One thing to note, they stain the water with tannins
