    Hello WKfriends,
    2 years ago, i take a little peace of Weppingmoos an put it in an Bowl with 5mm Gravel and any little rocks.
    Moos Weppingschale.
    First time it grows very slow, but now its fine and grows faster:D
    In Natur you can´t see so mutch lime, but the flash show it:mad:

    Now I take sometimes peaces of Weppingmoos and bring it to the Aquarium, that the Rocks come out.
    I want to clean the Bowl, but I don´t want do disturb the Moos, because it´s needs much time to lock good...

    Have you a good Tip, how to clean the Bowl?
    Thanks in advance

    VG Monika

    Hey, have not tried yet, because our tap water contains a lot of silicate.
    This makes it difficult to remove such edges. Normal flower vases, which were used only briefly, have been treated with citric acid + detergent + muscle strength, so that the edges go away.
    It was partially tap water but mostly used rain water, sometimes very little aquarium fertilizer.
    Water change has now taken place two years. I'm glad that it is now so beautiful to grow and would therefore like to give up the water changes not to throw back to it.

    What about Q-Tips and vinegar essence -
    put a paper between the glass and the plant while working untill the glass is dry again...

    In insistant cases I would use salt acid (carefully!!!) covering the plants with a foliage while working

    Hi Monika, Cover the plants in cling film and tuck down the side of the plants then kitchen paper over the top. The cling film stops the moist paper touching the plants
    Congrats on 2 years old it looks great:rolleyes:
