Here is a weekly Picture update. =) plants are coming along nice but I need to break the tank down and move it this week so we'll see what happens. Thinking about moving some plants around.

Any opinions appreciated.

I think a nice bunch of Rotala would look good in there

Looks great man! That tank is gonna be a jungle once all those Water Sprite start growing :-). The Rotundifolia looks good on the side, it will grow and curve at the top which would look really nice over the DW IMO.

Yeah it came out way better than before. I can't wait for it all to fill in now! I just want to get some reds going in there now. Yeah I think that'll look awesome over the Dw also, I planted some behind it too so that should fill in nicely around it.

the R. Rotundifolia will turn orangish/redish/pink under high light. I'm working on getting some of my new stems grown so that i can start distributing some of those to people locally so i'll let you know. They have nice bright reds and oranges so far.

Thanks a lot! It is coming in really nicely, I'm impressed. That Rotundifolia You gave me really fills out that side of the tank and looks really nice. I just need a bit of color in there now!

Luckily my bold came back really nice after I cut off all the stemmy parts and leafs with holes and actually made it through that ordeal...

I would trim the stems back now, try and encourage more compact growth and all
really like how your tank is coming out so far, can you post a pic of how you are doing your CO2?
