WOW, what an amazing tank. I started a 10 gallon myself and was debating on which carpeting plant to go with. I thought I already settle with DHG, but I think I am convenience that i should start looking for some mini micro sword. Thank you.

Can't say I blame you there. I'm moving in that same direction. My favorite tank was the one I just did top offs.

Lovely. One thought - have you thought about moving the drop checker? It's a little distracting.

I'm really loving this tank man, I like the way those Fissidens look among the rocks.

That is a good idea. I'll go do that next week.

Substrate is ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia I. I added some osmocote capsules in the beginning.

This is a beautiful tank. The only thing that I can say is that the snails ate kinda distracting, have you thought about getting an assassin snail in there?

Thanks. Would be nice if my camera could take a decent picture of the tank.

I like the snails so they are staying.

You take very good pictures. Just look around at some of the others to see that you are up in the top ranks of picture taking skills.

Ack! Being told to get rid of your prized snails! NO WAY.

You're too kind.

I got around to doing the first WC in months.

I wonder how many RCS are in this tank.

That reminds me, it is probably getting close to selling time for the mini micro sword. What sucks is that after I sell it, I'll have to replant and I hate doing that.

Any updates on your tanks?
