Yes i know ug is a tough plant to get going at the start during its conversion stage, fingers crossed ammonia wont affect it too much.

    Think am gonna do a photo journal of sorts and see the growth progress of the tank. Will update progress as it goes by, wish me luck!

    Here's the most current photo taken yesterday.

    Thanks bro! Yes i'm currently flooding my tank with CO2, hopefully it will assist in the process when Utricularia graminifolia converting to submersed form. i on my lights 3 hrs during the morning, and another 3 hours at night for a total of 6 hours.

    Can try check out C328, saw them selling some pairs just last weekend. Quality wasn't too shabby either.

    Re: Iwagumi reborn

    Day 3: Today i did another 20% water change and added some monster root tabs into the soil, hopefully it will help ug establish roots faster. In the process, some ug was uprooted but i planted them back. Noticed some of the stems plants at the back turning abit pale, should i be worried of some deficiencies ?

    Re: Iwagumi reborn

    Hi all,

    Just would like to provide a quick update. I been busy doing water changes for two weeks now, think i will now progress to bi weekly wc instead now that the background plants has grown slightly taller.

    Sadly, most of the UG i planted had started to melt after day 5 of setting up the tank, but i decided to just leave most of it in the tank. Luckily i chose to do so as i could start seeing its submerge form started emerging out from the mush after day 10 like a zombie plant! As you can see the tiny new growth, hope they survive and spread.

    Fingers crossed!

    Re: Iwagumi reborn

    Just a quick update on how the tank is doing now. I did a 2nd trim for the plants last week and took a photo yesterday, it is offically been 2 months since i setup the tank!

    Utricularia Graminifolia have started to send runners, but its still a slow progress for this plant after 2 months. There was also quite a major bloom of pink ramshorn snails which i bought to control algae too, luckily it is more or less under control now.

    Overall quite happy with the tank for now, just waiting for ug to spread.. it is indeed a challenging plant to grow for me!
