May I be so presumptuous as to ask how many tanks you own?

Am about to start growing some of my UG scraps in potting soil but have been nervous about it thriving. Have only had experience with it in Aquasoil and Fluval-like stratums in the past.

Can't wait to see how this turns out!

Updates!

I now have over 40 downoi plants. Just need them to grow full size now.

(notice how the B. salzmannii magically transferred from one container to the other. It is officially a weed in my book now)



Put all the P. erectus in the classroom tank. Replaced it with Macopa monnieri.


Rotala indica is growing slowly. I added 4 stems that I got in a plant package.


Bacopa salzmannii (This is after shipping to three people)



This UG is going to be traded for around 10 sakura shrimp and around 5 CRS. Thanks, Sara! You practically gave me shrimp in a round-about-way!


I also have a wad of random plants that I ripped out my 10g. Going to RAOK them.

Everything looks good, Caton! Downoi was pretty much taking over my emersed, so I moved all of mine to my 75g waterbox...

Maybe one day we can do a trade of emersed plants to further our collections!

Nice, that will be rockin! Definitely post some pics when you do it.

We will definitely have to do some sort of trade when you get close to getting it finished. I've got a good amount of different stems so far.

Well, I am going to build my collection inside, then move most everything outside. I am planning a 4x4 square of UG or something like that. Foreground galore

Ahh! Well in that case we can trade whenever you want. As long as I have some stuff you don't...

I might do shrimp. I have CRS coming in the mail after the holidays, we will see if the Ammonia is down. Still really high, because I didn't use organic choice.


This is ridiculously easy to do. All you need is a light, a shoe box, a pot, soil, and plants Excluding plants, I spent $120 on this. I have made that back already. 'course I traded goat skulls for the tank (weird trade I know, but it was custom made )

Wow... That's pretty sweet! Do the plastic containers have holes in them to let the dirt "breathe?"

Yep! I used a long drill, stacked the containers, flipped them upside down and got all of them at once Without the holes, they would just float and be dry
