Thread: My planted 55

  1. Default My planted 55


    0 Not allowed!
    Here's a few pics of my planted 55. Wisteria, cabomba, Java Moss, Java fern, and sword.

    Wisteria has leaves starting to curl and not sure why. It seems to be growing, just slowly.

    Dose flourish excel daily. Flourish Comp twice per week, and tetra flora pride. I use api root tabs as well, but just ordered these. Can anyone tell me if these look good? I bought the booster and the original packs:

    Thanks!

    Looks great! Our member KevinVA has a DIY root tab that is way cheaper and just as effective as the ones you can buy. Hopefully he'll see this and link you to it.

    What is your light like? It may be just the picture but, your Cabomba looks like it has spaces. Sign of not enough light.

    He has over 2 watts per gallon so that should be more than enough for those guys.

    i think you should try to dose a little extra CO2. all the light and nutrients in the world wont matter if there isnt enough CO2 for them to use it. by CO2 of course i mean excel...

    Yeah that stuff can kill your fish if dosed to high. If you are going to up the dose, start small and gradually work your way up to where you want it.
