whered you get that root driftwood...been looking all over fish avatar
I do run CO2, and used Miracle grow organic choice potting soil as substrate. No other ferts. fish avatar
do you use a co2 system ? and fertilizers can you give me the best fertilizers that u use ? fish avatar
had some fungus on driftwood, when I first put the stump in, but pleco took care of that. Water has just always been perfect. fish avatar
They tug at them. i have to stay away from anything with one stem coming out of the ground then bushing off type plants, else they break them off right at the ground and my plant is gone. Swords, crypts, anubius, and java fern are all good tough plants, that get good and rooted, hence I have a bunch of these. fish avatar
