Thank you all! Yeah, it was really nice when she got me the tank. Except she came up with the rule where every time I set up a new tank I have to buy her a purse!

The staurogyne really is filling in nicely. The colors of the cardinals go well with this tank.

I'm eager to see how your plants glued to the driftwood due in the long run. I know you can do that with HC but staurogyne/stem plants?

Hey Herns, I wish I could but I don't know the names of most of my plants. Only know the names of the ones I actually bought. Most of my plants I got from my local club during our meet and I didn't pay attention when the names were said. Whenever the bag was passed my way, if I thought it looked cool I grabbed it.

If you're talking about the carpet plant, it's staurogyne tropica sp 049, the plant that's ALL the rage nowadays haha

You tank is great! I just ordered the same Mr. Aqua tank a few minutes before I stumbled on this post and ironically your tank is very similar to what I had been scheming for my own. That wood from Tom is amazing!

BTW, how do you like the Mr. Aqua tank? The greeninsh tinit that I hear folks complaining about really doesn't look bad in the pictures. How is the silicone work and edges on yours?

an update!

I removed all my stems except for one. Replaced it all with cyperus helferi

Here's an FTS

I trimmed away a lot of the leaves that had this algae on it and did a big water change, which is why it's a tad cloudy.

My staurogyne is doing well but the bottom leaves aren't doing too hot. I think there's too much mulm down there. I think my next water change I'll fore go the garden hose and get down in there with a hose and bucket and suck up that mulm.

Lastly, here's one of the bettas I got from speedie408. This male is def. the dominant one in the group and this picture doesn't capture his blue-shiny-ness too well.


Holy Samosa, the tank is holding up great, The silicone seams are barely noticeable to me. I do notice a greenish tint but that may be from leaching from the aquasoil and not just the glass. I remember when I first set it up that it was crystal clear.

And Tom, no dice! haha


I might rescape this whole thing actually, after looking at the AGA contest winners, I feel so inadequate
