Thanks! Actually, I have both the Lamborghini and the GTR up there now. The GTR is signed, though, so it holds sentimental value knowing it's the only one signed by Robert Himler!

Have you considered staggering the height of your stems for a more layered look?

Just got back from a ten day vacation with minimal tank-related damages...

Positives:
-Excellent growth and color in R. colorata
-HC grew in very thickly
-Minimal algae despite not having been scraped for ten days

Negatives:
-Filter blew out and ZooMed's customer service is closed until Monday
-Nerite snail may have died

And to the photos! All photos are from my new iPhone 5, the camera of which is surprisingly strong, and when paired with the iPhoto app is fantastic. Love it.





I'll need to trim this tank as soon as I have a spare moment. Pics to come of the post-trim results!

Yeah, it's growing back from when I started the tank somehow... unfortunately, I can't think of any feasible way to get rid of it without damaging the HC's meticulous planting, and I don't really mind it that much, so I guess it will be staying.

what a trooper...
well now you know that your tank is healthier than it once was. since if i remember this right, id didnt grow before. and now its growing in from some little fragment of runner that must have stayed in the substrate.
well when its time to buzz the HC id pull it out and stick it in an emersed pot or on a WK to have some. never get rid of a plant entirely. youll never know when youll need some for a scape or sale. (which is why i might need a third emersed tub...)

Nah, the Nerite (there was only one to begin with) climbed out of the tank and fell onto the floor, where I stepped on it this morning when I woke up. I ended up putting it in another tank where it's now alive and well.

Great job with the tank Kiran! I like your tank so much that I am making a different tank based on yours!

^^^ This or have a triangle type scape with everything high near the highest rock point and then sloping down. That's the way I see it anyway, nice job.

I will have a journal of my tank, and since it is more modeled off of Kiran's than bsk's should I call it Treeless Mountain V2 V2 or Treeless Mountain V3?

Anyone have any HC or UG for cheap? If so, let me know.

Looking lush Krian. I personally liked it better without the blyxa. Its too big and takes hides the cool rockscape IMO...but I'm more of a clean open scape kinda guy....

That's a lot of growth on "treeless" mountain. It looks like everything is really nicely established. Well done!
