OMG! Thank you for letting me know! I don't even know if that's illegal or not.

What substrate are you using?
Angela Martinez
Angela Martinez - 3 years ago
Echo4nineteen Do you mean from when I added the Eco-complete? I added my Betta once the water cleared out which took a couple of days. And I have an update video that talks about the hair grass.

Angela Martinez last question, how long before you put your betta back into the tank?

Thanks again your tank is really nice! Any update on the hairgrass?

When you did bury the dwarf grass in your substrate, how far did you place the plant into the substrate?
Angela Martinez
Angela Martinez - 3 years ago
If you look at the bottom of the dwarf hairgrass, near the roots the grass is a lighter green. I left some of that sticking up from the substrate. With this plant I was told that you should not trim it when you first buy it and to wait a couple of weeks to a month.

How do you clean the bottom of the tank without harming the plants? Do you use a siphon?

Thank you Angela! Will use these tips!

I no longer have this plant, but when I did I didn't vacuum the substrate. The plants use the waste of the fish as nutrients and cleaning the substrate can damage the roots and disrupt them. I do my water changes every week when cleaning. Hope this helps ^o^

I just got some today, i have gravel and dose liquid ferts, i hope it survives...
Angela Martinez
Angela Martinez - 4 years ago
+Jack smith It would add more nutrients for your plants and give your roots a good foundation to grow. I haven't tried plants in regular gravel with just liquid ferts. It might work but would probably take a lot longer to grow.

Jack smith - 4 years ago
+Angela Martinez Normal black gravel, its quite small though, do you think mixing dirt in with it would help?
Angela Martinez

How did you get it to grow so good without co2
Angela Martinez
Angela Martinez - 4 years ago
+Danny Doty This is from when I first planted it. I no longer have it because my otocinclus cats were ripping it up. So I never got to see how it grew, but I use Leaf Zone and CO2 Booster (liquids) by API. The pieces that didn't get broken up looked like what it did in the video though.

Question. When the Hairgrass carpets the bed, do you still clean the substrate? If so, how? thank you!

How is the output flow for the betta? He seems to be doing well. He is beautiful by the way?
Angela Martinez
Angela Martinez - 4 years ago
+Matt Bernard I got rid of my dwarf hair grass, I really liked it but my fish didn't agree with them. I uploaded a new video explaining what happened in more detail.

+Angela Martinez I just bought some dwarfhair grass. How is yours doing. Do you have to do anything special for the plants mine arnt looking so hot. Do they need special chemicals of fertilizers
Angela Martinez
Angela Martinez - 4 years ago
+Matt Bernard Oh okay, I was just wondering cause I haven't really researched other tanks by Fluval other than the Chi and Spec. I keep mine in my room too, so having a silent filter is great!
Matt Bernard
Matt Bernard - 4 years ago
+Angela Martinez first of all it was hard to scape because of the small opening in the top. The lighting was really poor. It was really dim and had some dark spots. And the filtration system was louder. I have the tank in my bedroom so the spec is noiseless which is awsome. And it Looks less bulky which I like. And to top it off it was a lot cheeper. Edge was $129 spec was $75

+Matt Bernard i love my Fluval V, for me its perfect. What didn't you not like about the fluval edge?
Matt Bernard
Matt Bernard - 4 years ago
+Angela Martinez aww I'm sorry to hear that.. I just set mine up today. So far so good.. I tried to do the fluval edge but it was a disaster p. I took it back and got the spec v. I love it so much more
Angela Martinez
Angela Martinez - 4 years ago
+Matt Bernard I have the flow rate set to low for the pump. I also have this plastic cover that covers up some of the water slits to minimize the amount of water being sucked up. It also helps to protect my betta's fins. Unfortunately this betta has passed away from old age. I now have a new one that is much younger so I'm hoping he will have a good quality of life.

is the stock light enough to keep all you have pictured alive? I have the same tank and others but want to do a planted tank never had one
Angela Martinez
Angela Martinez - 4 years ago
+Russell Richards I haven't had any problems with lighting with this tank. Sometimes I move the light and place it on top of the cover (near the front or back) for the plants that like more light. I mostly just leave it in the middle and all my plants seems happy and green.
