    I'm loving this thread right now.
    Too many empty tanks here, with all the ingredients needed.

    I had the same itch. Then when I seen mobiles thread that was it!

    Still playing around with the plants. Cephs will be the main plants. What other plants do you think would look good in the tank?

    Mobile, what Utics would you recommend?

    Elgecko, how did you pot the plants with the clay pellets? Is it similar to my setup?

    Nice!! I can see into the future when that tank will be all mossy and coated with cephs! Good luck!


    In addition to growing plants, I design and build RC planes powered by Tesla batteries. Check out my progress at www.chargedplanes.com

    Straight pellets.
    I wanted to see what the reaction would be. The pellets are to be inert, maybe mine where contaminated. They where rinsed before use.... plants died in days.

    On the other hand here is another experiment I tried with straight lava rock. Plants did fine.

    Maybe you want to use an extra D.capensis and plant it in the pellets and see what happens for you before placing any prized plants in there.

    It'd look good with pings. They like to spread via division.

    Sound advise. I have a few capes laying around.

    I read that they were inert. I had to rinse mine off a lot before the water ran clear. Looked like I was making chocolate milk!!

    Thanks. That's what I'm hoping for.

    I was just looking at pings. I love the idea of Utics flowering around the tank but pings also flower often and without the invasive quality of Utics. I am leaning toward pings now.
