    hi all... i have been in the shadows for some time trying to grasp as much as possible before taking a plunge with no return

    i have been amassing my stuff slowly but there are items that i need assistance with namely plantex CSM+B

    tank: 1200x450x450
    pump: tetratec ex 1200+
    light: DIY T5 (2 x 54W) 6500K + 8000K
    substrate: potting soil (mineralized)

    i have bought macro dry ferts in tubs but i need trace elements (micro).
    KNO3
    K2SO4
    SALT PETER

    forgive me if i got the wording wrong

    plant selection:
    Phoenix moss
    hygrophylla pinnatifida
    staurogyne repens
    bolbitis
    java fern mini (needle leaf)
    rotala rotadifolia

    all hard scape (driftwood) was picked up from various parts (local river, tugella, kosi bay)

    where can one purchase plantex CSM+B in Stanger where aquascaping is not heard off

    cheers[​IMG][​IMG]

    not to sure if i’m right in asking, but, is your lighting not to much for the tank and the plants that you have?

    to my knowledge it’s basically the same, i’ve used flourish and it worked well, but it’s a lot more expensive, have you tried Scape products? a lot of the guys i know have changed over to it because of the price and they have seen good growth using it
