Thanks ritter6788 and got2envy...I will check it out and can't wait to give it a try
My tank has the overflow in the center of the tank so I'd like to attach some Green Star Polyp to it in hopes that it will cover the entire box. I realized that if it works I'll have to keep trimming it to keep it from plugging up the intake slots. Anyone ever try this?
Yeah people have done this, there are plenty of examples out there. I have GSP on the back wall of my AIO and its been doing fine.
I had assumed that the GSP would grow radially outward in a semi-even pattern so I placed it midway up on my backwall. Instead it grew some "runners" almost like crab grass, and grew directly upwards to the water line only then it started to grow outwards. Since its in the middle I havent head to deal with it growing into the weir yet. It does seem pretty easy to remove if you need to.
I just rested mine against the glass and let nature do it's work, it is starting up the glass but in a couple weeks I am changing everything over to my 120 gal from my 46, I will be getting this and throwing it on the glass in the new tank
here is mine gsp glued at the back wall and on the over flow....i also have orange ricordeas (did not glue them they just grew because i use to have a colony of resting on the overflow)...
Thanks! That's the look I want!
Sounds like a plan... best of luck with your upgrade!
Thanks for sharing! I'm glad to hear that it's not too hard to remove.
Here is a before and after picture a couple weeks in, you can see the monti on both sides is starting to grow onto the over flow already
I’ve got some German blue digitata that seems to have an affinity for the acrylic of the overflow. It doesn’t seem to encrust much but the piece that touched the acrylic has started encrusting like crazy. I will try and get a photo!
