Many plants are flexible, some troublesome species need nitrate limitation to show their colors(ludwigia arcuata/H.pinnatifida), while some do much better with nutrient rich water(ludwigia pantanal), so there is no universal situation that is the best for all.
    May I know 1-5ppm is for a day or for a week?

    It means I try to keep nitrates in the tank between 1-5ppm... Depending on plant uptake rate, dosing will change. I.e. If I'm constantly testing above 5ppm nitrates I'll dose less, if plants start getting stunted from lack of N, I dose more. On some tanks dosing 1ppm every other day works, with 40% WC on weekend. On higher lighting tanks, maybe double that....

    Thank you for your reply Dennis. "On some tanks dosing 1ppm every other day works, with 40% WC on weekend." means if the constantly tested nitrate results show above 5ppm, on some tanks we can dose 1ppm every other days?

    Persicaria/Polygonum sp. 'Sao Paulo'. Nice leaf color but not particularly good for scaping, keeping a couple of stems for novelty sake. A sample bought from Taiwan

    Did your white cloud jump out of the tank?

    I had 10 at first... after 2 weeks now left with 6... 4 decided to jump out...

    thanks for sharing the before photos!
    won't there be any planting problem with the black stand? as time passed, will the black stuff be exposed when the soil start to fall?

    Re: 3Ft Mound scape

    Beautiful tank as usual

    May i ask on your sand area, do you plant directly into the sand or are there soil subtrate beneath?

    What are the recommended plants that can be planted into the sand substrate directly if I do not have soil beneath?

    Thank you.
