naw, he was there long before any plants. lol He might uproot something new once in a while, but once something is established not really. He's probably 15 years old or more. I can't remember exactly when I got him.
Just started my 125G Potomac River Sunfish/Shiners tank planted with Vallisneria americana, substrate is Safe T Sorb. Planted my Val last night, still waiting on my Finnex Ray2's, so just using my two 36" T8's and a 48" dual T8. Going to let the plants root firmly then add the fish.
I wish I could find some of my pics from when my 135gal was low tech and looking great (before the BBA & nutrient deficiencies). I redid the tank this past Mar-Apr and converted into high tech. They both have their place and I commend those on this thread as they are beautifully done !
