Perform WIWO before planting.
Glosso is separated into each “node” and planted one by one. Best if you got assistant otherwise be prepared to get backache after planting.
Slowly filling up with water.
It is greener now . . .

Day 18… Fluorescent green Glosso.
The Day 1 – Day 18 pictures really show how the glosso has spread. By the way, thanks for showing the water changing picture. Finally got my hands on the contraption.
Trimming time . . .Only the front portion is trimmed…the rest of the area will be done in stages to avoid algae outbreak.
BorneoWild Wave Cutter.
Floating glosso is scooped out using fine net. I have removed the glass diffuser for cleaning and replace it with clean set.
Tank glass is cleaned with blade scrapper before performing water change. Easier to clean off GDA/GSA compare to magnet type and I dont have to wet my hand.
Result after trimming . . .
Cute bubble counter..
To replace my ADA Brighty K
GUSH Bubble (poppy) type glass outlet
Close up shot. I like the wave effect. Co2 diffuser is placed below the output to test the vortex effect. The result is fine co2 bubble got suck into the “bubble” head and circulate inside before being push out again. I am not exactly sure if this will cause co2 loss but further monitoring will be done from tomorrow onwards.
BW Boost A – I added 3 into the soil..will update the progress after 2-3 weeks.
