    Yeah phosphates of 1.89 that's what I'm talking about!

    Do you have any preference to water testing? Or are they all basically the same?

    Phosphate is probably 0.
    He is using PO4 test kit from 1980:)

    Wish I can get rhizo to look like that.
    What are you feeding rhizo?

    That is a lot of dendros!! Love the candy cane garden. How do you get it to spread out like that? Mines grow into round balls.

    Rich Ross, I'm a huge fan of yours ever since I saw your Macna presentation so many years ago. You are a huge inspiration and you're cute, too, if you don't mind me saying. Do you still have the same haircut? :)
