Tank looks great even with out fish
Thanx! I tried to make a "underwater rainforest" feel. I am letting plants run wild with no trimming, but if I do trim, then I replant it in another spot. My camera really doesn't capture the depth it has in real life, also the light is more shadowed and subdued.
Sucks to see that happen to you after coming so close. We kept them before and my wife loved those guys. I aclimated a brackish puffer to full marine in a tank with two large marine puffers. They were like the three amigo's. What is that layer of black stuff under the sand and does it help keep plants alive without the use of co2 or what.
It is "miracle-gro organic choice". The only potting soil safe to use in a FW planted tank. My plants like it a lot! My cabomba has even rooted so much I can see them against the glass! I basically have it so plants like swords, who need nutrients through the root system can access them.
I keep trying to convince my friend to acclimate a green spotted puffer to marine and put it in his FOWLR, but he is dying to get a Fu Manchu Lionfish first.
