That 101 fish Plant Sub, they want to sell it for R398.40 .
yeah and it is a 5kg bag...
it works really well though.
60lt - 10kg = R800
225lt - 20kg =R1600
I thinks this is the amounts I need ?
That alot of money just for gravel (but it's good gravel )
hehe, no one said this was a cheap hobby...
A fishkeeper in your area who I know used to tell me that "they" would just go collect some sand/gravel from the local river and it worked very well. I don't know how scared of crocodiles you are...
When I was 16 year old I use to swim with the croc's on my Bodyboard. Today I won't do it When you are young you got no fear.
I will have a look and what I can find ,will keep you updated...
The water has settled 8)
I will drop the water level a bit more and clean the glass
Reaaly like the scapes you do! keep the photos rolling please
Read on this post Rooibos will work to lower the hardnes of your water ...

very nice! i like the emmersed growth!
lets see a top view pic!
Coming soon :
Some bad news . The plants @ the back rooted and I removed all the plants and redid the tank . Tel me wat you think ...
sorry, i dont recall.. but how much light u using for this tank? seems like u might need add more?
I've got a 14w Gro-lux in atm. Should I add more ?
how big is the tank?looks like a 2ft.. id say atleast another 14w.. this light may be fine for the java fern but i dont think its enough for the other plants..esp that red one.. maybe thats why it melted?
Thanks Shihr I will add one .
The tank is about 60lt. The plants that melted was all the non-aquatic plants . I think it happend because the water flow did not do so well @ the back of the tank . The red plant did very well emerged . I started with 6 clippings and now i have about 20 stems .
The curent filter that I've installed is the RS Electrical RS-3000 Waterfall filter . Cost me about R150 and it pumps 1200lt/h.
Would like to keep this tank low tech. Curently I'm adding no fertz and doing weekly 20% water changes. My Sub consists of Peat Moss , garden gravel , hidroponics , nails and filter sand to keep that all down . This layer is about 1.5 cm .
Would like to add some HC @ some stage . Will see how it go's .
looks really cool, i like the color of the gravel and the little driftwood mountain
