Sorry for the bad pictures. They are iPhone pictures. All the white lines are CO2 bubbles getting dispursed by the powerhead.

did a little rescaping. i pulled all the driftwood out and rearranged it. i also planted the narrow leaf java fern around it. i think my cherries liked that because i see them more active in that area now. sorry for the random r. colorata. it floated up and stuck there


here is a picture of the new foreground im trying to grow

Your tank is starting to come together nicely! That one cherry really pops out on that driftwood! Cant wait to see the Aromatica get taller. Looks like they shrunk a lil?

How is your s.repens doing? I'm having some trouble with mine and we have roughly the same water.

Always curious.

I know they are really red! Also I found some baby shrimp the other day!!!! The l. aromatica I cut to the base and planted it. It's actually all tall now but for some reason it turned a lemon lime color. I don't know if I need more iron or what but I'll post an updated picture today

Thanks kribkeeper! I'll post an updated shot today. I think you should start a thread for your 60 gallon. I love seeing other peoples 60 gallons and how they scape them compared to mine.

Question for you about your set up. What are you using to block the intake of your filter so that your RCS don't get sucked up into the filter?

You tank looks great by the way. I would definitely put more moss on that wood you got there. It will fill up nicely
