This looks very promising, NC!! Should be a fantastic set up! Surprised that you decided on such a bright cap.....not what I had expected from you! Looks good.

thanks crazy! im annoyed by that piece sticking out on the right side of the left had stump. which means eventually i will do something about it. not sure what though.

what do you mean? i thought the cap fit my bright and cheery disposition. haha actually it'll darken once theres a nice biofilm on it.

im already getting a diatom blume. no algae eaters tho. i could put some bristlenose in there but theyd just plow through everything. need some otos or patience.

Diatoms and Taters, at least that's what we call them here, potatoe bugs. Some of the tissue culture plants from the big box stores are a good deal, often a bag of C. wendtii will have over 40 plantlets for 5 or 6 bucks. The tank looks good but bare compared to before, but it looks like the grass will be thick after it acclimates.

thanks! haha taters, never heard them called that before

i bought one of the wendtii's and there was a ton in there. way more than a pot from FAN.

I got a lot of die off from the grass, but it seems like its convereted over and coming around.

i also have some belem in there that seems to be spreading faster that the petsmart plant clones


oh and BOB, Rachel has a bunch waiting for me...
