Thread: Aquatic Plant Club donated tank

  1. #1

    Default Aquatic Plant Club donated tank

    Just a quick picture update on the tank that was donated to DFW Fish Rescue! How much longer do you think I should let it grow before I auction it off? All the Monte Carlo died off, and the plants arenít at their best yet (curse you, ammonia!) so Iím wondering if I should replace the plants and let it carpet over, or auction it without that. I love the scape so much that Iím tempted to enter the auction myself! 😂

    For those who weren’t aware, DFWAPC scaped and donated a tank to DFW Fish Rescue, with the idea that we could auction or raffle it off once it had grown; and use the money from that to buy some supplies we needed!

    it looks good, you could always do moss as a carpet, or ricca on rocks. what about doing c02 ? I'm betting the carlo died off from no c02, and ferts. what light was put over the tank?

    I’m using Flourish Excel and a line of products I don’t remember the name of. I have Monte Carlo growing beautifully in several of my tanks, all with no CO2. We have a massive (50lb?) CO2 tank at the rescue, but I don’t know how to run CO2 and I definitely think that tank is too large. I don’t remember the specs on the light. I took it off my Fluval Spec V.

    Isn’t it?! Here is a picture of the day it was donated. I had to replace the crypt and I’m floating Monte Carlo from one of my other tanks in there to see if it’ll survive before I plant it.

    I don't think you have enough light... I'm growing monte carlo in my tanks and dosing metricide(excel substitute ) instead of injected co2. . All I use are the screw in daylight led bulbs you get at Walmart.

    Any tips on where I can get an affordable but aesthetically pleasing light?
