HAHA I agree. The only problem is it is taking over the entire right side of my tank. It touches the back glass and the front glass. I keep saying I'm going to trim it but am afraid I'm going to jack it all up.

It is neat looking! I hope to have a smaller scaled one in my tank but the fern is currently trying to escape, rhizomes are crawling off the top of the wood.

How about starting by taking out the damaged and too long fronds? You would have to pinch them out with your fingers, no way you could get scissors in there and snip the right frond! I do that with the massive Narrow Leafed JF in my tank and it really helps.

Why thank you Kathyy! I love your tank setup! I've been wanting to do a different hardscape setup but I am possibly moving here within the next 6 months or so and don't know if I'm going to be able to haul my tanks with me or not yet.

I have been slowly pulling out as many dead leaves as I could during water changes but haven't pulled any of the healthy ones. So all you do is just pop off the very large leaves or would it be better to trim them with scissors if at all possible? Thanks for the help!

So my wife and I will be moving in February and I have permission to redo the tank's hardscape. Any ideas on what I should do? I'm trying to get the planning portion done.

Any updates on the tank with the new scape???

Are you going to be able to take the tanks with you when you move?

I haven't had a chance to redo anything. Don't know how I want to do it yet. The move and a baby on the way have been taking up all of my free time right now.

Both tanks are here in the house and up and running. Well, I should say all 4 of my tanks are up and running haha. I only advertise 2 of them.

So here's how my tank currently looks:



All of the plants are in the buckets to the left of the tank. Gonna try and get them back in today to prevent any melting from sitting in there.

Whisker Shrimp:




Albino Bristlenose Plecos:




Baby Cories:


I'll get some pics up once I get everything re-planted!

Updated tank shot. I took this back when the water was still a little cloudy from setting it up but I never uploaded it.

Thanks again Boxxer! Had to turn in the black angel today due to her constant breeding and attacking my wife's other angel. I'll be going through all of the fish that are in there and determining if I can get some higher quality Boesemani's and trade in the other ones. I'll keep it updated. It's been busy as my wife delivered our little girl last Wednesday!

Found my new hardscape finally! I had to get the wife's approval before I plunged the money into it with the new little one and all. I'll be heading back over there tomorrow to pick it up! Once I get some free time I'll get it all in there.
