Almost 2 months ago i bought a ADA 60p. With my new Aquarium the really enjoyable time has started „the planing of a new Aquarium“. I realy like this time nothing is impossible you simply need ideas.
After doing some research i realised:
Carpets are always a big problem.
It ll look fantastic, if you are lucky enough to have a closed carpet. Nobody wants to see the ugly soil we use. So i was looking for alternative ways to have this from the beginning.
There is a video from „greenaqua“ where Jurijs Jutjajevs talked about a lazy drystart. The perfect technique for me. I hate planting foreground plants.
So i bought 4 cups of Micranthemum „Monte Carlo“. Then i did these simple steps:
-Wash the gel off
-Cut the roots
-Cut the plant into little pieces 1-2cm big
-Sprinkle it on the soil like parsley
-Spray it with water and keep sure that it is always wet for the next month
-Put some cling film on top of the aquarium
And after a few weeks you ll see the roots getting bigger every day.
