Yet another great GWAPA meeting. We had quite a few new members, which made the auction more fun than it’s been in a while. Amy picked up some fissidens fontinalis, riccia, Hemianthus micranthemoides, and some Marchantia ploymorpha that looks kind of like a wide-leaved subwassertang.
I picked up a nice Anubias gigantea that is going in the 90g, some Crypt usteriana, bolbitis, and Cyperus helferi that will go in the 75g. I also picked up an Eheim liquid doser and a mini jet power head I’ll use for an auto-doser.
Cavan gave a talk on fertilizing tanks, and I learned I have been rather under-dosing micros. He uses 10ml each of Flourish, Flourish Iron, and Excel in his 40g – every day! That’s the same dose I use in my 90g after each water change, which happen roughly weekly. So I’ll have to start increasing those doses, and hopefully building an auto-doser will help me easily keep up with that schedule.
I also bought five drilled 10g tanks with bulkheads for only fifteen bucks. Before I did, I asked Amy whether she would divorce me if I bought them, and she said no. :-)
