I chopped them up! I'm trimming them to try and get as dense of a bush as possible. Plants love scissors

I evened out the corymbosa on the right, other then that I haven't done much at all!

I recently had a patch of hc started growing crazy weird. It started whenever a bga patch showed up. I remove it weekly, but the bga patch grows back onto it. Is this a different plant or just the plants acting strange? I'm curious

The normal HC is on the left, strange HC on the right.

Hey guys, have some new pics for ya.

I took apart my giant blyx and found out she had about 9 on her total, so I made a big patch of them

Besides that just trimmed up and replanted some corymbosa.

Oh yeah, I got this little blue ram too! He's cool ^^

Yeah, it's a different size all together.

Check out this image and compare The circles A and B.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I suspect it's just some Hemianthus micranthemoides that somehow made it in with the HC I got

Thanks for the kind word and for stopping by!

My god man, your tank is absolutely beautiful. So inspiring to look back to the first photo you posted, and now the current one. Amazing work!

You def have me looking into that DIY Paintball CO2 set up. The 2 2-liter set up all of a sudden isn't cutting it (and it's only been set up for a week now haha)

Look forward to more pics!

Hey guys, been busy lately but I have off today so I figured I'd update!

I know you guys like some pics

But first, thanks for the kind words guys, I appreciate it! Most of my inspiration comes from this forum, so I'm glad you guys like my journal. (I added some more red plants Termato!)

I've shifted things around a bit, broke up some anubias, trimmed some moss, and added a patch of red ludwigia (the tops are still green from the store) in on the right.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Pulled out my main driftwood for it's first trim ever, and found a crazy root system going through it!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I also found some hc attached to the moss attached to the driftwood. I forgot to take a picture, but you can see the bright green patch (very tip of big dw) on the picture of the left side of the tank. Who knew you could use moss to carpet hc?

Thanks for stopping by guys! I'll update in another week, till then, stay classy.
