Yes, alot of them are really cool when you grow them out emergent.

Chad! Do you ever get black slime on your emersed stuff? I get it on some of my cups, it is just on the soil... doesn't effect growth (matter of fact those plants are actually doing alot better for some odd reason) but I have no idea what it is

Hmm...I cant really say that I have. Sometimes I get Cyano and have to treat for that, maybe yours is just a different color Cyano?

I get Cyano all the time in my oldest tank and BBA, my 2 newer tanks are spotless clean. It's gotta be from a build up of nasty stuff in the substrate.

BTW the TT fry are out of control with 3 or 4 different sized fry all over the place and I'm still seeing berried females too, I hope they keep this up as the cold weather arrive but there is no heater in the tank so production could come to a halt.

Yes Tim, Its gotta be from stagnant substrate that doesnt "breathe" IMO. It usually turns up in places with poor current or if there is current, plenty of mulm to keep feeding it.
As for the TTs, yes, they are still going strong for me too. I wish all shrimp worked like them with that color pop too

Here is a Bucephalandra 'Flamingo' and a mess of different mosses and MQ. Do you see the baby TT in there Tim, lol?

This is the first time I've ever liked Bolbitis of any sort. Wow, almost looks like a cedar tree growing under water. It's gonna be a nice home for shrimp.

Any plants to toss in a few crypts?

Thanks Jake. Just the one crypt in this one. We arent even really sure what it is, but my daughter saved it from the garbage last January and its been emergent since then. I told her we could feature the "Saved Crypt" in this tank, so this ones for her

Thanks Rich, now for the long wait No Co2 for this one either so it'll be slow. I have such a hard time sticking to minimalist scapes too, lol

I am just a hobbyist at this point. Someday I would like to give a professional position a shot. I have sold plants and coral frags over the internet through various forums for almost 20 years now and would really like to give it a chance. It doesnt look like its going to go away anytime soon and I just keep collecting more and more stuff ...and thank you for your kind words

Haha, yes, I do tend to add plants as the scape matures. its SOOO hard not to The Mini Rosemoss was grown emergent and attached to ADA AS so it was super easy to lay in place and top up with water. I hope it grows in good without Co2. If not I can add it later. I think there is some regular Rosemoss and a little mini pellia mixed in, but I will try to tweeze those out as it matures

Chad nice start there. Looking forward to seeing it develop. The Mini Bolbitus, is that mature size in this pic? Or is that new growth still developing?
