I already love java fern, but your 100 gallon tank makes me love it even more!

wow, those are some seriously good lookin' tanks. My favorite is the 100G - it's just awesome. What is your dosing method for your tank? EI?

Thanks everyone The 100G gets the full Seachem line of ferts 2X a week and Excel 3X a week. The 150 and 5G just get weekly doses of Flourish Comp. The 150G isnt finished yet I still need some vals or crinum to hide those rena tubes and some dwarf water lettuce for the top.

I like the 150G, nice and simple. You got any other plans for it?

Thanks everyone The 5g is actually my oldest running planted tank...it recently in that pic had a huge thinning of plants actually the wad of needle leaf in the 150g as well as a couple of anubias came from that tiny tank. It has a standard incandescent hood with a 15watt screw in flo bulb.

As for the 100g im pretty content with it, when the amazon swords grow and fill in that back left end I will be more satisfied. I would also like to get a bit more of a foreground with some C.parva or petite anubias. Otherwise it will probably stay about the same for now.

Thanks

I ordered some coral for my 55G last nite; 4 zoas, 1 kenya tree, and 1 clove polyp. I consider them sort of the marine equivelant to plant keeping
