So my S. Repens came, and I planted them and they're doing great!
Just added 4 bristlenose pleco they are sooo small! They're only 1/2"
Heres whats with the S. Repens
Day 1:

Day 8:

When I look at them daily, I don't really notice the difference but now that I compare them, there's actually a huge difference!

This tank has come along real nice. It looks awesome!

I liked the sloping plant height from right to left, go back to that. Nice use of color. Keep plants in bigger groups of the same plant.

Haha, I'm still using DIY CO2 but have been saving up for the past 2 months for pressurized CO2. Its quite hard when you're a student :P

Update - Just added a ton of blyxa and S. Repens to replace the entire forgroud. Pulled up the original R. Roundifolia, L. Arcuata and Sunset Hygro in front of the DW to replace with Blyxa. And the entire forground from the crypts on the left to the crypts on the left is completely filled with S. Repens

Little update:
Day 18: Starting to get some algae in the brighter spots but all the others are squeeky clean.

Other left side rescaped with blyxa and more S. Repens

Hope everything starts going BOOM with growth

Well everything is overgrown right now and really needs a trim... Look for my thread in the SnS
Right now I added some more amanos(7) and about 15-20 cherry shrimp. They were an RAOK from a friend of mine in Eugene.
Its so hard to find them in such a big tank lol and they're really small..
Will update tonight once I scrape off all the algae!

Does no one like this tank? Since there are barely any comments apart from mine!

The amazon has gotten HUGE btw.
C. Helferi is also showing lots of growth. Longest leaf is 11"




Baby Cherry Barb(I think)

Amazing scape. Cool to see it progress. Is that a DIY stand??

Impressive. Hopefully I can get my tank looking this good in a few months. Just wanted to post to let you know that I've been following even if I haven't posted comments, and I'm sure there are at least a few others like me.

How often do you change your water? I might start using PPS Pro soon and I was just wondering.

Haha thanks
I change my water every month. But you can go on longer if you want. The only problem Im having with this tank is algae :tongue
But I finally added my pressurized co2 system last week and hopefully things will lighten up.
