It was time to trim some pearlweed. This aquascape is currently 130 days old and adapting to softer water as I recently switched to RO water. My tap water is hard (kh 10+) and with seiryu (limestone) rocks the kh raises a lot. So far the plants seem to respond positive to the softer water. I am aiming for around 6-8 kh now. What KH do you run in your aquascape? It seems I couldn't get away with lean dosing with a kh of ~13,5. Since yesterday I am trying 3,5 ppm NO3 a week in this tank to see if I can boost some color in Rotala Rotundifolia without stunting other plants.

Hi Nigel , nice growth and video!

I'm running 5 Kh in my tanks but I've soft tap water.

Rotundifolia needs a lot of light to get orange, mine is light orange and can't get more because my light is only medium on my 60p (twinstar ES600).

Anyway I like it that way, I find that red plants in an aquascape are often looking not so natural...

Cheers!

Hello!

Nice trim :up:
In my tank, the KH is between 1 and 3 ; 100% RO water and it works well.

Bonjour!

Belle taille :up:
Dans mon bac, le KH est entre 1 et 3 ; 100% d'eau osmosée et ça fonctionne bien.
Keep on scaping !

Very nice I think KH 5 is perfect.

Agree plants don't need to be to red. However in this Brazilian style tank I need a little bit more color. Orange will be perfect to have some contrast and uplifting ambiance.
