Aphasia (pronounced uh-fey-zhuh) is a condition caused by injury to the brain and affects a person’s ability to communicate. It is most often the result of stroke or traumatic brain injury. People with aphasia may have difficulty expressing themselves when speaking, difficulty understanding the speech of others, and difficulty reading and writing.

Starting off again after severe illness.
Thank you.
Brian

    The price between 25 or 40 was a quid or two, so I thought that I may as well get 40 and have a big choice of what goes where, also a few will no doubt be damaged etc too.

    Forgot to mention my intention is to distribute fert balls evenly for both the vallis and the hairgrass.
    Not everyone's ideal means of adding ferts, and I can see that the areas with the fert balls will be providing the most benefit for the plants close and not so for other areas.
    I'm sure I will get some good advice soon.
    Thx for looking

    Did you order from LTP on ebay? If so I feel they only ship out plants once per week. I ordered mine at 7am on a Monday morning, and they didn't arrive until Thursday - weren't marked as shipped until wednesday.

    Hello bri,I'm really enjoying your tank log.

    Just a word of caution on your choice of fish from bitter personal experience. If you put cherry shrimp in with danios they will get eaten within 5 minutes. They aren't aggressive fish but they eat everything and charge around the tank chasing each other and upsetting the quiet ones.
    I got rid of mine as I like the shrimp,the tank is a lot more peaceful now.

    Well back safe and sound home.
    I wasn't happy with the set up in the tank, think the 2 weeks have given me time to chew things over.
    There was algae on the bog wood so that came out and got a proper clean.
    I introduced some new rocks and larger pebbles which were cleaned thoroughly.
    Planted the fert balls evenly then re-shaped ready for my plants arriving later this week.
    I'm going to let the tank settle b4 I take any readings, in fact I may wait til tomorrow now.
    Gutted my timers haven't arrived! Gutted  :mad:
    Oh well upwards and onwards.
