    Plants have started to recover nicely. Showing some growth. <br />

    My wife thinks I'm mad. I grab a beer, pull up a chair and stare at my tank. Haha!<br />

    Don't worry bud. I do the same and my son sometimes joins me. We sit for a long time watching the tank and fish. Bonding time....

    Lmao you should ask @tapwater how I stared into his tank and I sit in front of my cube - it's so mesmerising, can't wait for it to grow in a bit.

    Hehe no fish yet. Tank is still cycling.

    I have read up on it that it's a bacterial bloom due to the Seachem Stability.

    Heterotrophs apparently growing faster than autotrophs.

    Will keep an eye out on the situation.

    Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated...

    Cheers

    Update:

    Hi all. This Friday will be 2 weeks in.

    [​IMG]

    Plants are all looking healthy other than the MU. Leaves are quite translucent on most of them. There is new growth on some of them so I'm thinking they are just recovering very slowly. The Cabomba and Tripartita are thriving.

    The Rotala green is interestingly shooting roots from all the stems. Any ideas what could be causing this?

    [​IMG]

    The last set of plants arrive today.

    HC
    Hairgrass
    Ludwigia Rubin
    Alternanthera Reineckii Rosaefolia
    And some others.

    I have introduced some livestock which I will snap after some new planting and the water change.

    Dosing excel daily at recommended amounts and flourish weekly at recommended amounts.

    Catch up later.

    M
