More updates!










All the plants are doing great, no real issues with any in particular. I just check them each day to make sure everyone is happy and adjust accordingly.
I got an order of new plants in last week, haven't had time to break some of them up yet, but will do so soon.

Due to the nature of plants growing, this project has spilled over into my back yard.

I'm having the same problem. I have sooooo many plants and I'm tearing down several tanks to make room for my second daughter. Who is due the first week of November. I know I haven't updated anything in awhile and I promise I will soon. All your stuff is looking great by the way.

I hear ya, best of luck Ophio, let me know how things go!
Today I received a bunch of Anubias and decided to make an emersed style setup with my overflow of plants.

Caterpillars got into my 50 gallon, the plants aren't happy. Trying to remove them by hand but it's not easy to spot them sometimes. Will post updated pics soon.

Caterpillars now invaded a few other boxes, I'm losing my plants overnight!!!! :/
Lost about $40 in various plants over the past few days. Still manually removing as many caterpillars as I can find.
Hoping to Fred Savage a few plants at least, hoping not to lose them all!!!!

Seems the best plan was to check the tank as much as possible for infestation.
If I saw bugs, I pulled them. After a handful of ugly caterpillars were removed, everything stabalized and the plants are recovering.

Very cool bitfull! Even if you are having some caterpillar problems, you at least have some great resources at your disposal and the ability to think on your feet. It will be nice to see some of these as they mature. Post-caterpillar, or course!

Thanks crazy! It's been a great lesson in growing and I'm always learning new things.
Will surely take some more pics soon. More importantly, I'm hoping to get my new 30 gallon project going, so many of these plants will finally have a home!

I've got some serious growth going right now. Plus I've flooded the 50 gallon, it's cycling now.
Pics to come soon

Flooded the 50 gallon, so those plants are working on getting established.
Lots of growth in the emersed boxes, plus more pics!
