Looking at the pics from June 2011, you're probably wondering what the heck happened. Well, I had quite a problem with algae in Nov/Dec and then I was in the midst of changing jobs. Some plants died and the DHG never took off. This resulted in a combination of discouragement and neglect.
I (finally) decided to get back on this tank, after several months of neglect which led it from an algae farm to what you see above on 6/4/11. I spent about 2 hours cleaning the tank last night, you can see the results in the photo from 6/16/11.
CO2 tank is getting refilled tomorrow, plants are being ordered online, and some more fish will be picked up soon.
This is my plan for the plants:
Lilaeopsis Mauritiana in the foreground
Bacopa Australis and Ludwigia Repens in the midground
Rotala Indica, Bacopa Monnieri, Water Wisteria, and corkscrew vals in the background
More updates to come.
