Wait.....he's brown? I need to adjust my monitor. That explains why all the driftwood on here has a yellowish tint....

Oh, wow. A little tweaking and things are looking a LOT different. I shouldn't have done that. Your tank is even more lovely. Alright, I guess I need to suck it up and send in my laptop for repairs.

You know what would be really cool? If they made glasses you could tweak to improve colors or to even remove them. It would be awesome to make everything black and white for a while. Okay, random thought over.

What kind of rotala is that? Rotundifolia?

11 more minutes. So technically, you could take a picture of the rotala since it's something newer, right?

Why did you give up on stems again? That was very pretty. Was this dirt or other fertilization? Oh and cool video (thx)! I noticed no discus.....I think your tank looks better with them now that I've seen both options....really glad you decided to keep them.

Don't blame you on the work part. You have changed your mind since February about tearing down the tank haven't you? (I HOPE!!) Doesn't look like you failed at stems, though. Oh, and I noticed you are playing your favorite Ty Herndon song in the background. Love the video.

(If I see the word "buffering" one more time, I might just have to open a window and chuck my pc out into the darkness. Your 1 minute video took like 15 minutes to look at. I finally stole the husband's laptop. Gah!)

thanks!! see im not some dummy that doesnt know how to grow plants, just a dummy that can't scape! i tried for a long time to get that aromatica to turn purple. it finally happened when i changed to giesemann lamps. ive been considering taking the co2 off of this tank, getting a gang valve thing and running it to my smaller tanks and packing them full of stems. actually if i just bought another regulator i wouldnt have to remove it from the 125.


sara, no that was my failed attempt at not keeping discus. it was 9 months of worry free bliss.

haha chad, you took pity on me?

Pity in the sense that i thought you were a newb and that you werent happy with your first tank. Now I see that you are not a newb and this definately isnt your first rodeo. I got out of stems and planted an easy care tank. Then tried to grow stems in a smaller tank. I still had a hard time keeping up. Guess I was born for easy street
