I can't wait to see this grown out some more; I received a SPEC about a month ago for my cubicle (Now it's sitting next to my computer in my home) and was experimenting with plants in it as well.
I don't seem to have much luck with any medium+ light req. plants myself (Running stock lighting), so I have some new low light plants coming in around tuesday to re-scape with. I transfered a lot of my plants from my SPEC to my "boyfriend's" medium-high tech nano. (It's technically his, as I got it for him for our anniversary because he was so interested in planted tanks, but I take care of it, haha. ).
Definitely following this journal; I like your sense of "Style" for placement and selections.
Thanks. I'm using stock lighting too. Current plants seem to be doing okay. I like this tank.
Sad day. Tank started to take a nose dive the past month.....fugly. Had to break this tank down. Life is getting in the way right now.....lol. R.I.P my Fluval Spec. Hope to turn you into a nano riparium one day.
